This Saturday, I'll be participating in Extra Life, a 24-hour gaming relay to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Specifically, I am fundraising for the Children's Specialized Hospital located in my home state of NJ, and I have set a lofty goal of raising $1000 for the children with special needs who receive treatment from this hospital. For some of those who may know, I worked for a majority of the past 3 years contributing to corporate efforts to improve employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities - both physical and cognitive disabilities alike. Given my work in the disability space, this is an important cause for me.
I am happy to participate in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games to party games and more! I would appreciate it if you would share this note with your personal network and to consider making a donation on my page. I'll need every bit of help I can get to make it to my goal, and I am grateful for any support in helping to signal boost my message as well as anything you can contribute. All donations made by US donors are tax deductible.
And in case you didn't know, himynameisbuddy is also raising money for Extra Life and will be joining me here and there on the stream this Saturday! His donation page is here: http:/extra-life.org/participant/himynameisbuddy - and if both he and I reach $2000 on our pages, because of the suffering I dealt out from donations last year, one of us will have to wear a skirt in suit for a photoshoot, likely taken at MWFF!
So, please promote among your networks, and consider donating if you can!
