Extra Life is a 24-hour video game marathon that raises money to help sick kids. But we need your help.
Me? How can I help?
The quickest way is to click here and make a donation to the Children's Specialized Hospital. (It's tax-deductible!) My personal goal this year is to raise $100 before the end of my 24 hour marathon, and I'd appreciate any help you can give those kids.
I'll be enjoying games and mild discomfort for a whole weekend for a great cause, and you get to feel like a hero - it's win/win.
Is there anything else I can do?
Of course. You can share the link to my donation page via social media, tell your friends and family about Extra Life, or cheer me on during the marathon.
I'm thankful for anything you can do to raise awareness for this awesome cause. And I really appreciate everyone that helps me keep going with this every year, because it's way more difficult than it looks. (Especially after 4am...)
When is it?
It is Saturday, November 17th. I'll be starting my marathon at 8am Eastern Time, playing for 24 hours straight, until Sunday at 8am. But you can donate whenever between now and the end of that weekend.
Will you do anything if I donate?
Uh, yeah! If you make a donation, I'll thank you on the stream and via Facebook and Twitter during the marathon (if you want). And if you like, you can make requests for me to do something special for you during or after the marathon.
I've got 24 hours to fill, and as I proved in the previous years, I'll do pretty much anything within my power to help (or make you laugh).
One last question - how can I follow along?
Like last year, I'll be streaming most of my marathon on Twitch and Mixer, with interludes of Google Hangout (viewed via YouTube). And you can also keep track of me throughout the day on Twitter and Instagram, where I'll be sharing updates about my progress.
So, please, if you can, make a donation to Extra Life and help me help you help some sick kids.
And thank you, thank you, for helping me help you help sick kids. It's an honor.
