Utrecht, Netherlands – December 19, 2012 Record Request is a game made to help raise money for the 3FM Serious Request project, available to play here.

Serious Request is an annual project by the Dutch radio station 3FM in which they collect money for Red Cross initiatives, which has inspired other similar projects across the world. During the project, three DJs live for six days in a house constructed of glass without access to food—instead, the captive volunteers drink a special type of juice for sustenance. Last year the project raised more than €8,000,000 for mothers affected by wars and other conflicts. This year money is being raised to help reduce infant mortality. More than 5.5 million babies die each year due to preventable causes.

Several ISOTX volunteers worked through the weekend to produce the Record Request game for the 3FM website. It was a rollercoaster ride of enthusiasm, hard work, panic, and more hard work, but it was completely worth it!
