DONATE

Dear Friends and Family,

  This year is my fifth year participating in Extra Life. The main reason I joined the campaign was because of our family's personal experience with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Both my daughter, Olivia, and son, Benjamin, were born with a metabolic disorder and are seen by them regularly in the city for follow ups. Both children have been seen in the hospital's Emergency Room for sicknesses that turned into multiple night stays.  

  In addition to the metabolic disorder, Ben was born slighty premature and needed the expertise of the staff at CHOP. He spent a week in the NICU and I can't speak more highly of the staff and facility. I will be forever thankful to them and will do whatever I can to make sure they can continue to provide the great care for other families going through tough times.  -Video Below

This Year's Goals:

* Everyone who donates to help me reach these goals may choose a digital code for a game (Steam, Xbox, 3DS, WiiU) or digital movie.

Welcome to my Extra Life fundraising page! I'm on a mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, I'm participating in this huge worldwide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 24 hours! 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.

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation.

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
