Extra Life 2016: Playing Games to Help Kids

By | October 9, 2016

It is time again for Extra Life, a charity event where I raise money for sick children by playing games for 24-hours. This is my second year, and I’m excited to help out once again. Here’s a recap of last year’s Extra Life (I played a lot of Magic the Gathering).

Play games, help kids.

Want to help? Make a donation via my Extra Life page. Every bit helps and I’ve added in some different goals and “rewards” like last year.

Last year I raised $250 (my goal was $200), so this year I’m shooting for $300. If I reach that goal, while I play games I’ll wear the Doctor Who scarf Stephanie knitted me.

If I hit $500 in donations, I’m shaving off my beard (and I’ll post before and after photos).

Game Day is Saturday, November 5, 2016. Now, the rules say, because of health reasons, game playing doesn’t have to be for 24 straight, it can be spit up. But, I’ll give it my all to go as long as I can, and make up the difference on Sunday or Monday. I made it for 14 hours straight last year, and I will try to beat that this year if I can.

My donations go to Sparrow Children’s Center here in Lansing. Please consider donating if you can.

I will publish another post closer to Game Day too, to help get some last minute donations (you can still donate after I start playing too).
