Hey there!

Welcome to my Extra Life fundraising page! I'm on a mission to help sick and injured kids in my local community and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their illness, injury or even their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries they may get from just being a kid.

To help raise funds and awareness for these sick and injured kids, I'm participating in this huge worldwide movement called Extra Life. Gamers of all kinds pledge to play everything from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's for 24 hours! It's my sincere 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 my hospital.

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.

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!

Why I do this!

I've always wanted to do charity work.  I help out where I can in other ways too, but what drew me to Extra Life is that I could do something I already enjoyed doing (gaming and meeting other gamers) and help my local community.  That last part is the important part to me.  There are thousands of charities out there and each one has it's own pluses and minuses, but what was truly important to me was affecting the people in my local community.  I think people make the mistake of not doing charity work, or donating to charities because they are too big and the money they spend is not trackable.  They can't see the impact they are having.  So I wanted to find something that helped me with that.  I got heavily involved and now I am ingrained into the community of gamers and spreading the word about a charity that actually helps the people we pass on the street every day.  You can do it too, be the change in your community.
