On November 10th at Gamehole Con, I'll be playing Dungeons & Dragons to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital! 

When playing Dungeons & Dragons, it's not uncommon to finish up a campaign with your characters saving the world or rescuing innocents. It seems many adventures you watch on have some variation of that theme set in a fantasy world… but fans can have a strong, positive impact in this world, too.

Extra Life is a charity organization D&D has been happy to be involved with since 2013, where gamers stream themselves playing together with the express purpose of driving donations to the Children's Hospitals Network. For 2018, we’re expanding our livestreaming and other efforts and encouraging fans to help drive even more donations.

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.
