On October 19th I will once again be participating in the epic 24 hour video game playing marathon for charity that is Extra Life. 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.
Goal for 2012: $200
Like last year, my decision to play for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is to give back to them for being there for my husband when he needed them as a child. Going through cancer treatments is scary as hell, and I want the support system they had for him to be there for more children in his situation for years to come.
I haven’t yet decided which games I’ll be playing this year during the event, mostly because I am work on my backlog and still figuring out if we’ll be picking anything up before the event takes place. A list of games will go in this spot eventually, just as soon as I know what that situation is.
You can keep updated as to my goings on with Extra Life 2012 by following me on Twitter or checking back on this post.
Update 1: I had to push my play date forward to Oct 19th from the official date of Oct 20th to accommodate last minute weekend plans.
