$1

I’ve been issued a personal challenge – to raise my Extra Life donations from a bit over $1700 to $2500 TODAY.  I’m most of the way there and I need your help to get the rest of the way. $1. That’s all it will take from you. Got a buck, please donate! Every dollar helps!

If you can donate more, that’s amazing! It’s also tax deductible and 100% of your donations go to the children’s hospitals. What’s this all about?

I’m on a mission to save kids through table top games, and I need your help. Yup, I’m doing another charity thing. It’s a little different this time though.

DONATE

This time, it’s personal

Children’s Hospital of Boston 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.

For the past five years, they’ve also been treating my youngest daughter. She was born with a very large, unilateral cleft lip, which extended up through her nose.

Children’s Boston not only corrected her cleft, but they treated her and our whole family with dignity, respect and honest to gosh caring. Because of their efforts, the amazing doctors and nursing staff, my daughter will live a normal, pain and scar free life.

On November 2nd, 2013, I’ll attempt to play an epic 25 hour game marathon and 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.

I’m doing this a bit differently this year too! I’ve contacted a number of game publishers and am getting lots of games donated! I plan on having a mini-convention in my home with prizes in the form of board games! I also have a few members on Team Troll who I’ll be sending games too. They’re free to use them during their 24 hours of play, and also to give them away to encourage their friends to donate!

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.

I can’t do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click the “Support This Participant” button on this page.

But wait, there’s more!

You Win

These may only be used by donors (Minimum $1 donation).

They may only be used once per person.

Donors, you know who you are. Do not abuse the power of the Ninja if you have not donated.

Should you be taken by surprise by a Ninja – You Lose card, you may simply link to or post this graphic (or print it out and show your would be assassin) and you’ve escaped! More over, you get to keep the You Lose card that was used against you for future use.

Thank you!

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
