The time has come once again for one of the coolest donation events for kids, the Children's Miracle Network Extra Life!
This year, my fellow co-workers and I mark the third year we have participated in this event. In 2012, we set a goal of raising $800.00. We ended up raising $1,300! Every penny of the donations we receive go to the Children's Miracle Network, we do not gain financially.
What is Extra Life?
Here's a great info-graphic about this event:
My fellow co-workers and I are gathering our efforts once again this year to raise as much donations as possible for kids in need. The actual gaming day this year will be November 2nd, 2013 - a day in which we will be playing video games up to 24 hours. We can actually start prior to this date, as long as we have accumulated 24 hours worth of gaming by the end of November 2nd. This year, we are setting our goal at $1000. With your help, we can easily reach our goal and beyond. At the very least, please consider making any kind of donation to our team. Even a donation as little as $1 will make a difference in a child's life.
You can donate to our team by clicking on the Extra Life widget on the right side of this blog or you can donate by going to my donation page.
