Wowza, I can hardly believe the 1st Annual Hearts, Hands, and Voices charity drive organized by Azeroth United has come to a close.  It ran November 1st through December 13th.  It was filled with great mini-drives and support.  The initial fundraising goal of $5,000 was surpassed quickly too!

As for our own mini-drive, #iblamesyrana, we ended with a total count of 1237 blame tweets which raised $300!

I consider that a smashing success.

We started out sponsoring 500, then Samodean, Fulguralis, Fuubaar, and Pixelated Executioner offered their support and sponsorship as well!  Sure, we didn't reach the updated goal of 1500, but we came quite close!

So a HUUUUUGE THANK YOU to everyone that helped out!

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
