Playing games and healing kids with Extra Life

On October 16, 2010, I will play video games for 24 hours straight. This isn’t for any sort of test of endurance, nor is it because of the release of a new game. On that day, I will be helping children at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. With the help of Extra Life and the Children’s Miracle Network, I will be one of many who will help children across the nation.

So, I’m asking anyone who can afford it to donate a dollar per hour for 24 hours. If you can’t afford the full amount, feel free to donate a partial amount. As of this posting, I’m halfway to my goal of $96.00. If I can get some more donations, I will raise my goal another $100. Me and other gamers across the nation want to set an example  that games can be meant for good. Extra Life and Child’s Play are two charities that do just that.

I will be entertaining people on my Facebook and Twitter in between periods of play. Some of the things I have planned are as follows:

1. I will take a photo of myself every hour to see if there’s any visible difference during the 24-hour gaming session.

2. I will also take submissions on games to play beforehand that I can play on the Xbox 360.

3. If you can only donate a partial amount, I will thank you on the hours you’ve donated for.

Any donations are tax deductible. If you have any other suggestions, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment on here, Facebook, or Twitter. I’m super stoked to be part of this and hope that you will be a part of it too. Please, feel free to donate at my page here.

Thank you!
