Dear Friends and Family and Strangers alike,
This is my third year directly participating in Extra Life, a community movement that helps raise money for local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Hospitals in this network treat thousands of children each year, regardless of the family's ability to pay. This is important. These kids are facing serious issues like cancer and serious injuries. If their families are in a bad position, I want to be able to help. I want you to help, too.
Over the past 8 years Extra Life has raised over $22 million to help children's hospitals all around the country. This has helped to provide critical treatments, medical equipment, and other healthcare services for children. Some of the money has even gone toward research!
If you choose to donate, and you should, your donation is tax-deductible and all proceeds - ALL PROCEEDS - go to help kids.
I'd actually like you to do more than donate. I would love for you to join the team and help raise money for Extra Life. Just click the Join button up there. You'll be a big help! You're able to reach people that I cannot, and you'll be able to get donations from people who would much rather donate to you. The more of us there are involved, the more we will be able to raise for the kids.
It should probably be mentioned that this is a charity started by gamers that is generally celebrated by a 24 hour event in November. That is roughly the fundraising deadline, with this year's even starting November 5th and ending the 6th. While the even is fun because my team plays games (tabletop, video, and role-playing) for 24 hours straight, it is less important than the goal itself. Last year the team raised nearly $1900! This year we would love if you helped us raise more.
Thank you for supporting our efforts!
