Starting out early this year!

As many of you know, I’ve been participating in this wonderful fund raiser for the Children’s Miracle Network, raising money for my local children’s hospital. This year it is being held October 25th and I will be abusing myself once again!

Last year I raised $630 and appreciate each and every one of you for that support. This year, I want to break $1000 and so I’m going to start early and do random things to raise money through out the year.

My teammate’s and I have some things planned for the marathon and are currently working on them. More info will follow on that later.

But for now, you can see this years page for me here, please share it with your friends: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/89852

What about prizes, David?

That’s part of the more info will follow.

But! If you’re local here in the Seattle area and love music, I have four tickets to see Sea Wolf on March 6 at The Triple Door for you and three of your friends. If you’re not familiar with that name, Sea Wolf is a wonderful indie rock group.

Interested? Check below:

To win these, donate any amount over $25 and you will be entered into the drawing that will be held on Feb 20th March 1st at 6pm.

Thank you for your support!


*****UPDATE 2/21/14***** Extended donation period to March 1st

This gaming can consist of console, pc, laptop, tablet, card, table, etc. As long as its gaming. And ALL PROCEEDS go to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of our choices.

    Only five days left until I do my 24 hour marathon gaming event! If you haven’t sponsored me yet, what are you waiting for? I’ve got a long way to go to hit my goal and would really appreciate your help.

    Would you be willing to donate $1 for each hour of the marathon I play (that’s just $24) to help me raise money for my local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital?

    I want you to imagine a playroom. It is a colorful, clean, happy playroom filled with laughing, adorable children. This playroom looks like any playroom in any school or daycare in any town in any country. But it’s not just any playroom.

    You watch through the glass as Child Life Specialists, who are some of the unsung heroes in many CMN Hospitals, lead them in crafts and activities. Over in the corner, one of the Child Life Specialists has a medical play doll, and she is using it to help a 7-year old girl learn about the procedure she has to endure this afternoon.

    A bunch of the kids are riding plastic cars, while their dad pushes their IV pole along beside them, trying to keep up. The lucky ones still have their hair. Some wear funny hats. Some are bald. They see you in the window, and wave to you.

    You wave back.

    This playroom you’re imagining is real.

    If you had seen this today with your own eyes, there would be no holding you back this week. You’d charge through Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and Friday, and you’d go couch diving and hold a cubicle yard sale at work and do whatever it took to make sure that come Saturday you arrived at Extra Life magnificently out of breath, knowing you did all you could do to save these kids.

    This week is going to be over in what will seem like 5 minutes. Don’t let it get away from you.

    Wave back to the kids and tell them you’re coming to play too. You just need to take care of a few things first… You’ll be right there.

    Please follow the link and donate through the secure site. Not only will I appreciate your support, but the kids will as well.
