I’m on a Mission, and I Need Your Help

Extra Life 2014

Extra Life 2014

Dear Friends and Family,

I’m on a mission to save kids, and I need your help. My local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

My close friends and I have all shared a passion for gaming for much our lives. Through gaming we have learned and practiced critical skills such as decision making, critical thought, patience, and how to play well with others. Seeing as we had helped ourselves so much, we decided that it was time use our skills to help others.

Thus, we discovered Extra Life. On October 25, 2014, my close friends and I will be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds, from video games to board games to tabletop RPG’s. We in particular will be playing board and role-playing games for the entire duration of the event: 24 hours straight.  (Of course, all 24 hours will be recorded and posted in all its sleep-deprived glory!)

It’s my sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to our hospital. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. To donate, follow this link and click the “Support Me” button.

Thank you for your time and donations. In the timeless words of the wise sage Wil Wheaton: Play More Games!
