Friends! Family! Strangers!
David Caldwell here. I have a HUGE passion for helping sick children in any way I can. At this point in my life, the most effective way I can really accomplish that is by doing everything I can to raise as much money as I can for my local Children's Miracle Network - University of New Mexico Children's Hospital - and teaming up with Extra-Life and surrounding myself with like-minded nerds.
This will be my fourth year playing games (video, card, board, etc) for 24 hours straight to raise money. Sure, you might think playing games is a silly way to show support, but it's kind of like a marathon. Except a TAD less healthy ;-) Each year, I recruit more and more of my friends to join me in this venture and am constantly looking to add teammates.
Since 2010, when Extra-Life began, thousands of other gamers and I have been part of a huge outreach and have collectively raised over $14,000,000 (yeah, that's six zeroes) in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals around the country. Please show me your support with whatever you can. Every single dollar counts and will help children right here in my hometown, Albuquerque. The hospital here helps 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.
You can make a one-time donation or a monthly pledge. Both are tax deductible. Just click on "Support This Participant" to get started.
Thank you so much for considering!
