October 14th Update:
Many thanks to all of my friends and family members who helped me reach my goal this week. I couldn’t have done this without you. You will be putting smiles on faces and for that, you are heroes.
Now onto my gaming schedule for the big event! I will be starting at 0:00am Oct 15th and playing for 24hrs straight (with potty/food breaks and a shower thrown in). Here’s my gaming breakdown.
0:00am – 4:00am: A mix of Fallout New Vegas DLC (Honest Hearts & Dead Money)
4:00am – 9:00am: Silent Hill Homecoming
9:00am – 2:00pm: Persona 4
Depending on when we end campaign mode, I may switch to You Don’t Know Jack or play something on my PSP (I like to give my 360 cool down time as she’s getting older). You can follow me on Twitterfor updates.
On October 15th, 2011, I will be participating in the Extra Life fundraiser, playing video games for 24 hours to raise money for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. For as little as $1 an hour (that’s only $24!) or any sized flat donation, you can help me raise funds that will help children and their families while they undergo treatment. All donations are tax deductible and every penny of it will go towards Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
My Goal: To Raise $1000
I took part in the very first Extra Life event which helped raise money for the Texas Children’s Hospital. Now, through the power of the Children’s Miracle Network, Extra Life is able to make sure the funds raised can go to whichever hospital in the network you wish to support. The reason I chose Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is my husband. When Matt was younger, he had leukemia and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (as Scottish Rite at the time) was the centre that took care of all of his treatments, including his chemotherapy.
I haven’t finalized my play by play for this year’s event. Odds are I will be doing some sort of streaming, whether from home or at Battle & Brew in Marietta with the InDisTeam. I will try to accommodate any requests that I can, including which games to play, etc. Sponsorship from companies is also welcome, just shoot me a private email if you want to pursue that avenue. Keep your eyes here for updated information on my plans and list of games I will be playing!
Many thanks for your time, support and participation. =)
