This Saturday, November 5th, is the 2016 Extra Life Gameathon and Charity Event!
This is something I’ve participated in annually for more than a half decade and this year is no different.
If you don’t know what it is, I’ll give you the short and sweet version:
A worldwide collection of individuals and teams work together and game for 24 hours to help raise money for thousands of sick kids. Since 2008, #ExtraLife has raised more than $22 million for that cause!
The reason I am making this post is because I am looking for donations. I won’t see a cent of it, ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids and your donations are tax-deductible.
This event has been close to my heart because I was often sick as a kid for well, my heart. Growing up, I was in and out of the hospital. Knowing I have the ability now to give back is great and the fact I can do it by playing games is a win-win. This year, my personal fundraising goal is $1,000. The general idea is for people to sponsor you with donations. The most popular amount is usually for $24 ($1/hour.) You can even donate as little as $1 and it’d still be helping out tremendously. Every little bit helps.
While participating, I plan to be streaming the entire event live on Twitch. You will literally be able to watch us play, listen to music, hang out, and chat the whole time! I plan on starting 8 a.m. (EST) that morning. To view the stream, head over to out Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/thegoreydetails
