Hey yall!

My name is Trisha and I'm on a mission to save kids but need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Children's Medical Center of Dallas, 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. As a mother of a beautiful 7 year old daughter, children's charities like Extra Life are always dear to my heart.

For the 5th straight year, I'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's! On November 7th I'll be joining gamers around the world in a 24-hour gaming marathon to help raise money for this great cause called Extra Life. Since 2010, Extra Life has raised more than $14 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitable care. 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 my hospital.

No donation is too small, even if it is only a dollar because every dollar counts. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

Here is an article I wrote about my very first experience supporting Extra Life: http://www.hsmagazine.net/2011/11/my-extra-life-experience/

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids.  Please make a safe, easy donation online today.  Click the "Support This Participant" button on this page to get started.  Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!

While I may not be streaming my gameplay during the gaming marathon, I'll be sharing my progress on Twitter (http://twitter.com/tbaby_84) and Google+ (http://google.com/+TrishaBaby) so feel free to follow along there.

I'm also giving away PlayStation game codes for the following games from LOOT Interactive (formerly LOOT Entertainment when they created content for PlayStation Home):

  • Back to Bed
  • Velocibox
  • Q*Bert Rebooted

For those of you who aren't familiar with these games, you can find descriptions, screen shots and videos of them here: http://www.lootinteractive.com/games/

I'm also giving away PlayStation codes for "Kill Strain" by Sony San Diego, provided by Maverick Gamers (http://maverickgamers.com).

I will be playing a variety of games on different systems including mobile iOS games and some board games and cards too!

I still don't have a PS4 yet, but these were the games I was thinking about playing on my PS3:

  • NBA 2K 16
  • Saints Row 4: National Treasure Edition
  • GTA5
  • RE6
  • Mortal Kombat
  • Mod Nation Racers (I'll never forget when I played with Cade Peterson and Will Powers during the Extra Life 2011 game-a-thon)
  • Back To Bed
  • Q*Bert Rebooted

I will also make time to do some extensive testing of the Atom Universe Alpha for PC (more info at http://atomuniverse.net) and maybe have a little fun with other testers who are on at the time.

I plan to play some Mario Kart on my Nintendo 3DS XL as well as on my Wii. I plan to play some other games on my Wii with my daughter, but I'll let her decide which games lol. I might play some Wii party games too, depending on which of my friends come over to my house during the marathon.

I plan to play some mobile games like Candy Crush, Words with Friends, Draw Something, PAC-MAN 256 and maybe a few others.

Finally, I was also thinking about playing some games other than video games. I love playing card games (e.g. Spaces, Texas Hold Em) and dominos and thought it would be fun to play some of those games during the marathon too. Maybe we'll even play some Monopoly lol.

Take care,
