Just an update for you about an event I participate in every Fall.
BLUF: Support me as I raise money for the hospital that saved my niece’s life. Go here to donate.
This weekend, gamers around the world will come together for 24 (25 with the time change) hours of gaming raising money for children. The event is Extra Life and all the money the gamers raise goes to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the US.
This event is particularly close to my heart as my niece was born into Providence of Alaska at 26 weeks. They helped keep her in the womb as long as possible, safely delivered her, and saved her life during her 72 day stay in the NICU. She’s now a happy, bubbling kid full of life thanks to that hospital.
All of the funds I raise go to Providence of Alaska. Many, many more gamers have similar stories about the hospitals they support. In fact, the entire event was inspired by Victoria Enmon, a little girl diagnosed with cancer that wanted to do something for the other kids around her that were more sick. You can learn more about her story in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHSZ_82wiJg . Warning: tissues should be nearby.
So, what can you do? Well, you can join in and support a hospital. Learn more at http://www.extra-life.org . But, if you’d rather just support a gamer, you can go to that site and find someone also doing this. My page is here. I believe Jamison Stone is also participating.
Oh, and Rise is 42 copies away from 2K sold:-) I’m still waiting on all those reviews you promised.
