Dear Friends and Family, 

I'm not bothering with all that boilerplate message - if you've made it this far, you may already know we're gamers raising money for our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital with a 24-hour "play it forward" game marathon.  U.S. residents may even know that their donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help sick kids. (If you're not aware, then the Extra Life site has tons of information on it.)

It is something far more personal than stock boilerplate text for me. 

My own health has been a rollercoaster, so I "get" how rough it must be for these kids and their families as some of them battle with some really horrendous illnesses.

Online game immersion is my major form of diversion and pain-blocking. Being able to combine that with fundraising for a children's hospital is a fabulous thing for me.

Will you help me brighten the lives of some sick kids and their families?

 Milestone information:

  1. Check back here after we hit the $500 mark for a link to the rewritten story. (To be clear, this is a story that I personally wrote, as a player, not some official EQ lore.)
  2. Donors, please add a comment after you donate, telling me your color preference for my hair color for game day, in case we hit the $1000 mark.

Please note: if you wish to donate in a currency type not supported by Extra Life, please email me directly at niamidenmother "at" gmail "dot" com and I can provide you with my liberapay information, and I will handle the currency exchange and donation while tracking your donor information for milestones and promotions.
