On November 3rd, I'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!
What's extra life?
Extra Life is a yearly marathon where gamers from around the world commit to playing games of all kinds for 24 hours non-stop to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Myself, like many others in Ottawa, play for the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, also known as CHEO. Since it's humble beginnings in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $40 million to help sick kids in our community and shown loud and clear, the incredible good gamers can do for the world when we come together.
Follow all the participants on Mixer to watch us both during the telethon and when we do other streams as well:
You can donate to my campaign right from this page using a credit card or PayPal. No amount is too big or too small. 100% of your donation goes to help CHEO (though you can optionally offer to cover the processing fees as well) and all donations of $10 or more will receive a tax receipt early in 2019 if you provide your mailing address. Your donation will be shouted out on my live stream and if you live a message with your donation, I'll make sure that's read out too.
If you can't afford to donate or even if you can, please spread this far and wide on your various social media feeds. Being at the telethon again is a big deal for us and the more awareness we can spread, the better! You can also register to participate in Extra Life this year if you want. Just sign up for free on the web site.
Anyone who lives in Ottawa or knows someone who did has been touched by CHEO and the incredible work they do for sick kids. It's an honour and a privilege to be able to use this hobby we love to do good for such a fantastic institution. Thank you for your support and see you June 9th and 10th!
