First off I am glad to be back!
But I have a fundraiser to do! Yay! Anybody heard of Extra Life? Well here is a story that will fill you in...
Extra Life began in 2008 as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon. Tori’s battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia inspired the Sarcastic Gamer Community in a way that is difficult to describe. Members sent in video games and bought gifts to keep Tori’s spirits up despite numerous hospital stays and three bouts with the deadly disease.
Tragically, we lost Tori to cancer in January 2008. Later that year, I asked my partners at Sarcastic Gamer if they would be interested in Extra Life, a 24-hour video game marathon to raise money for the hospital that treated and fought beside Tori. In 2008 and 2009 Extra Life raised a combined $302,000, 100 percent of which went directly to help kids like Tori at my local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital (Texas Children’s Hospital).
While thousands of gamers, more than 100 websites and more than 12,000 donors were happy to support Extra Life, many expressed their desire to raise money to help kids closer to home. In what I can only consider destiny, in 2009 I left behind my radio career and went to work full-time for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as a Radiothon Director. This life-changing event gave me unique insight into an incredible non-profit organization that helps kids all over the United States and Canada.
I have signed up with the Team of Trion Worlds 2014 to help support this cause and would love it if you or your friends could help me reach my goal.
I have chosen the All Children's Hospital located in Florida, USA.Any donations to support me would be greatly appreciated.
Please, please donate here: www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?f…
Every small amount of $ counts to healthier and happier children.
Anyone that does support me will get recognition by myself and posted in a journal after the fundraising has been completed (you will also recieve a Llama).
