On November 3rd, I'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!

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. 

This will be my 8th year participating in Extra Life. I started participating because the idea of gaming to raise money for local hospital sounded like fun. I didn't expect to learn my mother was actually given care at the hospital I was raising money to support.

Donation Giveaways

So this year we've had some wonderful items donated or done for give away. I'm asking for $5 donations for virtual tickets in a drawing on October 27th during our 24 hour marathon. Every $5's donated is a ticket and no limit on tickets you can get on single items or multiple items. In the comment of the donation just put any variation of "[X# of tickets] for [item]" so I can be sure to put the tickets in the right places. There will also be some cool surprise items given away during the marathon so be sure to stay tuned for details. Items you can get tickets on now include: Strangers in Paradise XXV issue 1 sketch cover by Terry Moore, Wyrmwood Dice Vault and a Boss Monster Set from Brotherwise Games. Photo of items Currently limited to residents in the US. If you will be attending Extra Life United 2019 and not in a rush to receive them contact me and we can see what we can do.
