Play Games. Heal Kids.

Dear 2o2p Friendies:

Many of you are probably already familiar with the organization Extra Life. They raise money every year by hosting a 24-hour gaming marathon, and all the proceeds go to local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. This year's event takes place on October 15th, and the guys from and I have teamed up as gaming parents to raise as much as we possibly can for our local hospitals.

My own daughter received life-saving heart surgery just this past December at our local CMN hospital so this is a cause about which I am very passionate and I would like to invite you to either donate whatever you can to our team, or even join yourself. The more the merrier! Be honest, you were just looking for an excuse to play something for 24 hours straight anyway, so let the Redbull and take-out flow and come get it on with us. It can be PC, console games, board games, stuff on your phone, doesn't matter. We plan to offer live video feeds and even take game requests, so you can observe that we are honoring out committment.

100% of donations go to the hospitals and they are tax deductible, too. Even if it's just a buck or two, it all adds up to helping to save the lives of kids all over the country. If you get a second, please pop over to my profile at Extra Life and give what you can. You know many of the folks who will be on this team from 2o2p anyway, and we'd love to have you on board as teammates if you're interested.

Thanks for your attention, and look forward to seeing you in October!
