Spray Paint Art Rewards, Tetris 99 & Overwatch Events, and a 24-Hour Gaming Marathon as Part of My Extra Life 2020 Campaign!

Over the past two years, we’ve raised over $2,000 in support of the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals through Extra Life. With 2020 being the year that it is, our help is needed more than ever! This year, your donations will go towards the Children’s Hospital COVID-19 Impact Fund. In light of where things are in the world, it’s crucial that we step up and help the kids during these unprecedented times.

If that’s all the convincing you need to support the cause, head over to my donation page and contribute whatever you’re able to spare. But if you’d like to learn more about the cause or follow along with all of my initiatives to support Extra Life this year, read on!

Extra Life 2019 Campaign Post-Mortem – Part 1

Our first-ever attempt at the Extra Life gaming marathon was a success. We raised $800 for the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals and had an amazing time doing it. Any fears I had going into it were quelled by the outpouring of support from family, friends, and the broader gaming community.

Even so, I wasn’t ready to rest on my laurels. Going into 2019, I wanted to make a bigger impact. Generate more donations. Put on an even better show. Get more involved with the cause. Before I close the door on this year’s campaign, it’s worth looking back on the areas where growth occurred and other aspects that still have room for improvement.

This post grew out of control real fast, so I’ve decided to split it into two parts. This is part one, covering everything leading up to the marathon!
