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.

Who I is?

I'm the Content Manager for the D&D Adventurers League Organized Play campaign for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons. I'm getting together with a bunch of fellow nerds and nerdettes to play some D&D and help some sick kids in the process.

TEH phattest of LEWTZ

Donating to me and my team is a win-win-win-win! By donating, sick kids win, I win, you win, and other people win! WE LITERALLY ALL WIN.

If wish to collect your donation's associated reward, you MUST provide a contact email address when you donate.
