Extra Life 2022


hello hero,

After nine years, Extra Life is now a tradition for my close friends, family, and I. There’s no better tradition than celebrating Evan’s birthday and kicking off another year of gaming to raise a whole bunch of money to help sick kids in Alaska.

If you receive this email, it means you’ve supported me in the past. I want to give you the most sincere thank you for being a hero! You’re generosity has helped countless Alaska Children and their families in a time when they’ve needed it the most. Thank you for being awesome!

This, my 9th year, I’m pledging once again to play games for 24-hours to raise money for The Children’s Hospital at Providence. Every year, The Children's Hospital at Providence treats thousands of children, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. I'm on a mission to help these kids and I need your help.

Pediatric illness is something that my family is all too familiar with. The Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network helped us when we needed it the most. In memory of my brother-in-law, Evan Casey. I'm participating in a huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds. From video games to board games to tabletop RPG's, we are playing together to heal kids!

It is my hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to The Children’s Hospital at Providence to help the kids and families that we call neighbors, co-workers, and family. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

Evan Casey. Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for being my brother. Thank you for playing games. It was a privilege to know you in life and it is a honor to play in your memory for Extra Life.
