It’s that time of year again! I’m officially kicking off my Extra Life 2015 campaign! I’ve got until November 7th for Team Troll and I to raise as much as we can for children’s hospitals around the country.
I’m going to attempt to raise $2500 this year – which is a lot! So if you have a buck or maybe 2,500 bucks to spare, please consider donating! 100% of the proceeds raised goes directly to the hospitals.
This will be my 4th year raising money for Boston Children’s Hospital – and as always I do this not just for ‘the kids’ but for my kid. My youngest daughter was born with a unilateral cleft lip. When we brought her home from China at two and a half years old, she faced a number of lengthy and involved surgeries.
Now at nearly 10 years old, she is not only thriving but is a beautiful, wonderful (board game loving) child! We owe an awful lot to the doctors, nurses and staff at Boston Children’s. They literally changed our daughter’s life for the better.
She’s not done yet though, with at least one more major surgery in her future, we’ll continue to support Boston Children’s by playing games and taking names!
In my first three Extra Life events I’ve raised $6,541.00 total. Each year we host a tiny, miniature convention at our home and enlist a few select team members for Team Troll to do the same. This year will be no different! A select group of amazing publishers have donated to our cause over the years for prize and game support.
The Beard Challenge
Every year I also do a BEARD CHALLENGE! If and only if I can make my goal of $2500 or more, I will shave off the lovely beard I’ve been spending the last few months growing. There’s only one time a year you’ll ever find me clean shaven, and that’s the morning after an Extra Life event!
Beard Challenge Accepted!
The following publishers have lent their support to the Team Troll Extra Life efforts! A huge thanks goes out to them!
Thanks so much!
PLAY GAMES – HEAL KIDS!
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.
