For almost a year, through no fault of their own, @electriceidolon and @shingetsu25242 have been stuck sharing a room in their parents’ dangerously unsafe house that is deteriorating faster than they can keep up with. As seen in the photo (click through link to see if it doesn’t show up on tumblr’s dash), their flooring has completely collapsed all the way into the dirt in one area of the house (the landscape camera view isn’t even wide enough to show the entire hole). The black mold, which is abundant and growing throughout the house, is clearly visible in the corner, and also responsible for causing them to constantly battle respiratory infections. The light seen through the wall leads to outside. Numerous termites and spiders are slowly coming back as the weather gets warmer, especially with this hole as a welcoming entrance. Despite both _EE and Shin having jobs that often require over 40 hours a week, problems at home have been eating away at their savings– including their father still requiring they pay rent to live in this house– making it next to impossible to move out on their own. An opportunity has arisen for myself and one of _EE and Shin’s friends to move into a house together. They need help raising enough money to be able to afford the moving expenses in hopes that they’re finally able to live in a safe, sturdy, pest- and mold-free home. REWARDS FOR DONATING! PBT Arcade and its members & friends are offering these numerous rewards as a thank-you for helping two of their beloved group members, _EE and Shin, get out of their dangerous living situation, and helping them move closer to provide more hilarious YouTube Let’s Play content for charity!  Here is the link to their channel!

This isn’t markiplier related, but I know @electriceidolon is a member of the markiplier community and she has helped me through a lot, so here’s a reblog on it. I promise there will be more markiplier content coming this week. -MarkiplierEssentials

One last reblog for the sake of public service and to the charity this community is about. Good luck @electriceidolon with everything! I can’t wait to see you this summer. -Devon

Temporary Charity Hiatus and Event Cancellations

Dear Heroes, Minions, Bobbleheads, and Othes,

We are sad to inform you all that due to current circumstances the MarkiArtists for Charity will be going on a summer-long hiatus from all events at least until the end of this summer. Many things have been going on in the lives of all of our volunteers in charge of the group which would make it close to impossible for them to run the group without potentially stretching themselves too thin. Unfortunately, this means that we will have to cancel our plans for events until we are all in positions where we can effectively run the MarkiArtists. All of us feel that if we try to push ourselves it will sacrifice our ability to ensure that a quality and effective event will be held for the Play for All charities. We apologize for delay in notifying you all and for having to cancel. We thank you all for supporting the past MAFC events. It has been an absolutely incredible past year and we can’t thank you enough for supporting our cause. We all hope that the hiatus will be short and that we will be able to start helping charities again as soon as possible.

Sincerely, 

The MarkiArtists for Charity

    We are having a MarkiArtists for Charity event for Child’s Play from March 12th, 2016 til April 10th 2016! 

Volunteer artists from our MarkiArtist charity group will be accepting any/all commissions in an effort to raise money for Child’s Play. 

This event will be a part of the MarkiArtists for Charity’s year long campaign, Play for All, All for Play, to have month long events throughout the year of 2016 for charities that are helping diversify the video game industry and improve game accesibility.

For March, on top of @markiplier , LordMinion777 (lordminion ),muyskerm related fanart, we have now received permission directly from the fantastic Cryaotic ( @cryaotic ) and Thomas Sanders ( @thatsthat24 ) to sell fanart art of them (as well as Cry’s Late Night streaming crew)!

 If you ever wanted to commission fanart featuring these Youtubers and Internet celebrities, know that we have gotten permission to sell/commission artwork in their likeness to help charity, here.

We would like to note that even if you send in an application, that does not ensure you will be a MarkiArtist for the March fundraiser for Child’s Play

Sincerely,

Your fan-fricken-tastic Staff

Dear Thomas Sanders (aka @thatsthat24 , The Vine Guy, etc. etc.)

We are trying to contact you in regards to a charity fan art request from The MarkiArtists for Charity. The MarkiArtistsfor Charity is a charity group composed of fanartists inspired by Markiplier to raise money for charity, by selling commissioned pieces of Youtubers and Internet Icon fan art. All profits from the commissions go directly to the charity that has been chosen for the current fundraising period, and we, the MarkiArtists, are not involved in handling any of the funds directly.

As we are committed helping those in need, due to Markiplier’s influence, we hold month-long online charity fundraising events throughout the year. During those months, in effort to raise money for the chosen charity, we sell commissioned Markiplier, Lordminion777 (Wade Barnes), and Muyskerm (Bob Muyskens), fanart (all profit going directly to the fundraiser excluding shipping costs if the customer wants the art sent to them), hold art livestreams, video game livestreams, and live community podcasts.

As we are committed helping those in need, due to Markiplier’s influence, we hold month-long online charity fundraising events every other month or so throughout the year where during the month we sell commissioned Markiplier, Lordminion777 (Wade Barnes), and Muyskerm (Bob Muyskens), fanart (all profit going directly to the fundraiser excluding shipping costs if the customer wants the art sent to them), hold art livestreams, video game livestreams, and live community podcasts. In the past the MarkiArtists for Charity have held month long events for charities such as Child’s Play (raising $265.50 of our original goal of $100), the AbleGamers (raising $800 of our original goal of $300), The All Children’s Hospital of Florida (raising $780 of our final goal of $1200) and The Make a Wish Foundation (a second Widget was used due to a malfunction in the first, therefore, the final total of donations combining both Widgets is $255)

This year we are planning to have a year long event called Play for All, All for Play where every other month or so we hold a charity fundraiser for a charity that works towards diversity in the gaming industry.The charities that we will be fundraising for during Play for All, All for Play will be Child’s Play, The Able Gamers, Ladies Learning Code, and most likely These Numbers Have Faces.

We would like to know if you would be okay with MarkiArtists taking commissions of fan art of you for the charity fundraiser.

If you have any questions about our authenticity, then just feel free to ask us for references. We will get you in contact with the charities we have fundraised for who will be able to verify our fundraisers for them.

MarkiArtists for Charity is here to serve the community and would greatly appreciate your support. We are open to any ideas and suggestions to create a more effective fundraiser. If you are interested in following up with us or should you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email at markilierfanartforcharity@gmail.com or reply to this post.

Sincerely,

MarkiArtists for Charity

The Stream Team:

@warfpower ( V )

@markiplieressentials​ (Devon)

@karlarei​ (Karla)

@charitylivestream​ (Clive)

When and What Starting at 6 PM EST on January 10th, we’ll start the podcast and get the party started! We invite all of you join us as we talk about the community and the wonderful and creative things that have been created from it! We will also have fun intermissions where we’ll play games such as “Finish My Sentence”, “Pictionary”, “Wine or Cheese” and “Never Have I Ever”!  AND, if someone donates $50 or more to the charity fundraiser, a few members of the stream team will do the hot sauce challenge and then play rage games like Baking Simulator, Geometry Dash, and Reaction Time!

The podcast is going to be held on the MarkiArtists for Charity Twitch at: http://www.twitch.tv/markiartistsforcharity

Stay strong and stay awesome, -MarkiplierEssentials

Link to livestream and donation page for podcast

For those of you are interested in the MarkiArtists for Charity charity podcast for Make a Wish, please check out this link to the Twitch (http://www.twitch.tv/markiartistsforcharity) and this link to the donation page (http://site.wish.org/site/TR/FriendsandFamily/Make-A-WishAmerica?team_id=5302&pg=team&fr_id=1510) All donations go directly to The Make a Wish Foundation, and will help the Foundation grant wishes to children who are battling life-threatening illnesses

ADDENDUM: Due to several connectivity issues, many other peeps participating in similar activities, and low viewership, streaming for this event will continue at 1pm tomorrow, Jan 2nd. Sorry for the decision but I think it will be more beneficial for everyone if we’re more starry-eyed and refreshed and if there are more peeps on board to share our wares to.

Thanks!

ADDENDUM ADDENDUM: Internet connectivity issues are persisting and the “dude” cannot be here for a few more days to fix it. Unfortunately, this results in no more stream…

BUT, there is an upside! We are all here in the same place, which is rare, so we’re going to be recording lots of LAN stuff, so get prepared for some GMOD shenanigans and other videos to be coming to our youtube channel soon!

Thanks, everyone who’s listening for your patience and support!

Bringing To Light a Real Problem

Before I begin, I’d like to say that this post is not meant to offend, alienate or point out any specific Markiplite, it is only meant to point out our failing to recognize the foundations of which our community is based upon. With that out of the way, I’d like to start by saying; We have a real problem.

In the Markiplier community, we fail to recognize why we’re here. You can look at the surface, yes, and say we’re here to support Markiplier and the rest of the community, to offer support when no one else will, to protect and defend anyone who may need it, but why are we really here? Why are we such a vast and understanding community? Answer; Charity. Mark has built the foundations for the Markiplites and the Markiplier community on charity, and I know I’m not the only one who has noticed the distinct lack of charitable events being held, and the support of which they receive. It’s disturbing to think that this wonderful community, full of so many bright individuals, can be so blind to this aspect that truly makes us who we are.

Markiplier holds charity livestreams and has raised almost $1,000,000 for charities that benefit people all around the world. But we cannot let him be the only person that promotes and participates in charity events; we all know he doesn’t have the time to host livestreams very often. We must be the bigger people in helping charities and helping those who host livestreams. It pains me, and feel free to reblog with your own opinions on the situation, to see that so many people like PBT Arcade, who hosted a 24 hour stream last night but needed to stop because of lack of participation, are failing to draw any sort of a crowd. We cannot and should not let Mark be the only one to draw a crowd for charity. Because after all, isn’t that what our community is all about? Helping others in their times of need? And this doesn’t stop with @markiplier, it extends to other’s as well, @therealjacksepticeye, @emsarcade, @crankgameplays, etc. We need to let them know we’re on their side with helping people.

What can you do? When you see a charity post, reblog it. There is no shame in letting people know that there is an event being held that could potentially alter or even save someone’s life. You can spread the word through text posts, videos, etc. @markiartists-for-charity is an amazing organization that receives too little credit for their work. There are plenty of organizations out there…so go find one and be the better person. Even if you cannot donate, every little bit counts, even just your view. 

We are Markiplites and we are strong. Let’s use that strength for good.

“Plant trees you’ll never sit under the shade of” -Markiplier

Stay strong and stay awesome, -MarkiplierEssentials
