Extra Life 2012: Liveblog

24 hours are gone and so are we. $5,333 raised for Seattle Children’s Hospital. Thank you all!

It’s gametime! For the next 24 hours I’ll be gaming to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital.

We’ve already raised $2,500 $3,214 $4,581 but I’d love to see us get to $5,000. If you can, please DONATE.

There’s a livestream and chat running on twitch.tv/thevowel if you’d like to join the fun! It should be really entertaining when the sleep deprivation hits.

Sponsor part of the marathon!

For $100 you can pick an Xbox 360 game that I have and I’ll play it for 30 minutes. I’ve got most of the Xbox 360 games released in the US so there’s a good chance that I can play your favorite game – or the game that you’d like to see me suffer through! Want me to play it for another 30 minutes? Double your previous donation – $100 for the first 30 minutes, $200 for the next 30, etc. – and I’ll do it. Note: I’m not going to play Kinect games – I’m committed to playing for 24 hours, and if you have me playing Dance Central for hours on end I’ll collapse long before that.

We’ve already got a lot of time sponsored:
