Playing Games 24 Hours For Charity

Hey Guys,

I’m on a mission to save kids and I need your help. My local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital 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.

I’ll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG’s!

Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24-hour gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $14 million to help children’s hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitable care.

It’s my sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support my efforts by donating here. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!

You can watch us live stream the entire event on my friend Kara’s Twitch account here (I’m sorry if there’s any cursing). I will also be Periscoping (@MariahEvely) the event as well as live Tweeting (@MariahEvely) the important bits.

So now that you get what I’m doing please help support what you can.  All money raised will be going to the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.  Any little bit will help and I will match my donation total up to $100.

Thank you for donating and watching! 🙂
