In a few short hours it'll be my birthday, and I just wanted to suggest that instead of posting happy birthday wishes on my wall, you consider making a $5 donation to my Extra Life page.
Extra Life is a non-profit that raises money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through gaming. For the 3rd consecutive year, I'm "playing" for the Children's Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ.
Last year, Extra Life managed to raise over $9 million for CMN Hospitals. Game Day is November 4, and my goal for 2017 is $400. It would mean a lot if you would consider donating, even a small amount. It is a tax-deductible donation, if that entices you in any way.
Thanks for reading this, and thank you very much if you decide to donate. It means a lot. ??
Here we go, folks! I have signed up for the THIRD consecutive year to raise money through Extra Life for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (specifically the Children's Specialized Hospital in Mountainside, NJ).
After last year's successful fundraising, I've set 2017's goal at $400.00! I know, with your help and support, that I can make this goal a reality!
I am also planning to stream on Twitch 1-2 times a week, in the lead-up to the 24-hour game day on NOVEMBER 4, 2017!
Mark your calendars, and if you're interested in participating in some live-streamed tabletop or board game fun on that day, please let me know! I'd love to make more of a social event of it this year and get some more friends involved (that can be a long, lonely 24 hours in front of the computer)!
Thank you in advance for all of your help and support!!!

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!
