24 Hour Game-a-thon for Boston Children’s Hospital

24 hours straight, all board games, RPGs and video games, non-stop because I want to help heal kids. **Donate Securely Here**

I’m on a mission to save kids through table top games, and I need your help.

Boston Children’s Hospital treats thousands of children each year, 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 have a cousin, Gracie, who was born with Cystic Fibrosis. This year I will be walking in one of the CF Foundation walks to raise money for a cure and treatment. Until then, Boston Children’s Hospital has helped Gracie and many children like her who are afflicted with CF.

With your help we can raise money that will allow Boston Children’s Hospital to treat kids no matter what kind of help they need.

On Oct. 20th, 2012, I’ll join Ben Gerber in an attempt to play an epic 24 hour table top game marathon.

It’s my sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support me with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital. We’ll be playing games, recording podcasts, hanging out on Google+ and doing everything we can to stay awake.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

Last year, Extra Life raised more than 1.2 million dollars to save kids, but in 2012 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher.  All you have to do is go to my Extra Life page and make a donation. Donate a buck, donate more. Every single dollar helps. I’m looking to raise at least $100 – but I’d love to blow that amount away!

Whatever you can do, pledge money, spread this around far and wide or start a pledge page of your own, I, my family and all the kids who need us to go above and beyond appreciate it beyond words.
