Ok, here’s the deal. I’m looking to raise an obscene amount of cash for Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, and I need your help.
You throw some dough at me by clicking that heading to extralife.dzama.ca and clicking that "Support Me" button. If your wondering what’s a good amount, let’s start with $24 (That’s $1 for every hour I’m playing). If your feeling extra awesome and want to give more to this great cause, I’ll seriously love you forever… Seriously. Super cereal.
Spread the word. Get thee to your Twitters, Facebooks, YouTubes, Tumblrs and any other social networks you’ve got and tell everyone about this. You don’t even have to point them my way (but extra points if you do); there are plenty of great Extra Lifers out there you can throw some cash at and help some kids. Hey, and if you think you can do a better job than me, bring it! Sign yourself up for Extra Life (It’s so on, by the way).
On October 25 at 8:00 am, it begins: 24 hours straight of pure energy drink fuelled video gaming. And while I’m trying not to die (virtually and physically), you can watch/cheer/taunt/boo/hiss from the sidelines. I’ll be Instagramming, Twittering, and Facebooking live as much as I can during the 24 hour marathon.
This is where the real magic happens. Regardless of whether I survive the 24 hours, Extra Life takes that big bag of cash you guys donated and dumps 100% of it in the lap of Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.
Every penny (or nickel since penny’s don’t exist anymore) goes straight to helping kids that are fighting for their lives.
Sick Kids hospital has had a huge impact on my family (and especially on my sister’s life). This charity means a lot to me. Every dollar you donate goes directly to saving a child’s life (like my sister’s) and helping a family through their hardest times. You guys are seriously awesome.
To make pearls, you’ve got to eat dirt.
