Kicking Street Fighter Ass For...Child Care?

On April 14, a fighting game tournament called Fight For Youth will be going down in Norwalk/La Mirada, California. Up for grabs is not fame, or even internet fame, but the chance to lend a very practical, helping hand to local kids.


Proceeds raised from the tournament - being put together by prominent fighting game community member Daniel "Clockw0rk" Maniago - will be going towards an afterschool program that runs in twelve local schools; namely, to fund their end-of-year concert and to also rent buses that can take the kids on wide-ranging field trips.

Which sounds small, but I've always thought that small can often also be the most helpful, because it lets people make a clear and direct difference.

There'll be a doubles Street Fighter X Tekken tournament alongside a singles Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 showdown.


I'd love to join, but I'm not in a position to travel outside of CA right now. I'll definitely donate once they set that up. Hope they stream the event so everyone across the country to get hype and contribute as well.
