On November 3rd, I'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!
High fives for year 5!
Wow. That is the first word that comes to mind when I think about the progress that has been made personally and within this community over the last 5 years. I say this every year, and this time is no different: thanks to YOU, I am able to proudly say we have made a difference in children's lives. YOUR donations, YOUR faith in the cause, YOUR spreading the word; it is no small feat you are doing in helping Extra Life raise funds for these hospitals. So I offer you my thanks, my praise, in your support to help heal kids and save lives.
It is with so much love that I continue my efforts for a 5th year. This year is going to be different. I will have rewards for your fabulous donations, there are plenty of high fives to go around, and hopefully, I will have working internet (Years 3 and 4 have been quite the struggle with that).
I attended Extra Life United for my second year, where I competed along side and against other Extra Lifers to hopefully bring home $150,000 to Nicklaus Children's Hospital. Although I didn't win first prize, I did manage to bring home a little more than $600 for my hospital, which is beyond amazing. And it's with your support that I made that happen.
My goal for year 5 is greater than I've ever aimed before: $720. Why that number you ask? Simply put, that rounds off my overall donations to $2000 raised for All Children's Hospital and Nicklaus Children's Hospital. Because more is more, I do aim for stretch goals between $750-$1,000. I know we have it in us to hit those goals, and I'm looking forward to being there when it happens!
I KNOW we can make this happen! So let's have at it! Read below for the super duper important details that really sums up the what, why and how of Extra Life!
Here's how it works
Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
On Game Day (Nov. 3rd), I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!
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 love my dinosaur army so much! I couldn't do any of this without you! Let's make 2018 magical! And remember, Keep Calm and Rawr On!!
