Will Ferrell Hates Cancer and is Playing Video Games for Charity

Comedian Will Ferrell is playing video games for charity and is encouraging the "extremely motivated, highly philanthropic and impossibly good looking" gaming community to donate for a chance to play against him.

In collaboration with Cancer for College and, the actor is asking people to contribute to his cancer fundraiser. Donors will be entered into a draw for an opportunity to challenge the SNL alum on a live broadcast event on Twitch TV. The grand prize winner will receive air fare for two to San Francisco among other prizes. Everyone who donates will get other gifts from partners like Xbox One and Amazon.

If you want to play video games for charity and challenge Will Ferrell, they want to reach their goal of $375,000 by October 12, 2014.
