Welcome to my donation page!
To see what I do year-round, please visit my Patreon or Gamer Reverie blog.

What is Extra Life? It's gamers doing what they love best in order to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the US and Canada. (Don't fret -- if you aren't in the States, my chosen Hospital treats International children in need!) The charity effort lasts all year long, with a 24-hour marathon taking place each year. This year's marathon day is Saturday, November 5th.
