Gamers giving Extra Life to kids

Today I’m talking about one of two amazing charities that involve gamers giving back to help kids in need – Extra Life (the other one is Child’s Play).

Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network.  In my case, I’ll be raising money for Seattle Children’s Hospital.  Starting at 8AM on Saturday, October 16th I’ll be playing games for 24 hours straight with my family and friends.

There’ll be plenty of Xbox 360 gaming – Reach, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and much more.  We’ll have great board and card games like Munchkin and Risk.  We’ll even dig through my archive and pull out some great classic games that go way, way back.

If you’re reading this, it’d be wonderful if you could donate to the cause.  You can help me reach my goal of $2,500 or look on the Extra Life page for someone supporting your local CMN hospital.
