I've pledged to play games and raise funds for kids at my local children's hospital.
More than ever, especially this year, children's hospitals around the country need our help. That is why I am asking for your help to raise money for my local Children's Miracle Network hospital. Every single dollar you can contribute will help sick and injured kids.
For you being a hero and donating money through my fundraiser, myself and my company (Proletariat Inc.) will be playing video games for a total of 24 hours this February to continue to raise money for Boston Children's Hospital.
My original goal was to raise $500 out of our overall $8,000 goal as a company, but we've already blown past that. By coming together, I hope that we can not only reach my new goal of $1,000, but continue to go way beyond that. You know me, as we reach these goals, surely we'll have more and more fun trying to raise even more money for our local children's hospital.
I have participated in fundraising activities for many causes over the last several years, and Extra Life is one of the ones that is super important to me. Having spent weeks in children's hospitals growing up for cases of pneumonia, I know how hard the doctors, nurses, and staff work to ensure not only kids heal and get better, but don't have their childhood taken away from them, just because they're cooped up in a hospital bed for weeks or months of their lives.
How Can You Help?
You can be a hero and donate directly through this fundraiser page. All donations go directly to the Children's Miracle Network hospitals, and most importantly our local Boston Children's Hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. Simply click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to help.
I am aware times are tough for us all, and while even a single dollar donated can go a long way, if you absolutely cannot contribute, no worries at all. You can continue to help the cause by sharing this fundraiser with your friends, family, co-workers, and extended network. Equally as important you can educate them on why this is an important cause.
