Extra Life 2018


the Klingon empire wants you!

Qapla', fellow warriors! Welcome to my Extra Life fundraising page!
Ever since I found out I was going to be an aunt for the first time, I decided that I would make it my yearly mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community. I'm just one warrior though and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Lurie Children's Hospital, has treated thousands of children, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing stuff way worse than tribbles or The Dominion - stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.

This is my 4th year helping to raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids by participating in this quadrant-wide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for a glorious & honorable 24 hours straight! It's my sincere hope that duty & honor will win the day and you will support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.

my goal is $1500 this year!

This feels crazy to me. Last year, my goal was $1000 and I ended up raising over $1600. I don't expect that craziness to happen again but I can hope!

I've got some pre-game day goals!

I'll be adding to these during the year! I may talk the Red Shirt into another concert. I may do more Klingon Karaoke. I will definitely try to do some more incentives throughout the year. 

my game day will be october 20th!

This is a couple weeks earlier than the official Extra Life Day but the timing of this year's official day is not good for me. That means I have less time to hit my insane goal! I'm going to do it!

Your donation is 100% 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.

As we get closer to the date, I'll announce a schedule of what I'll be playing and when with everything livestreamed on Twitch so you can tune in anytime to watch me play and chat with me during the 24 hour marathon!

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts! Satlho'qu'! Qapla' batlh je!
