Extra Life Day

Extra Life Day is this Saturday, October 25th, and I have decided to participate this year and help add to the donations. Last year after a DDoS attack crippled the website for several hours, preventing people from donating, we proved that pranks won't stop us from helping out fellow video game fans and children in need.

For those who don't know, Extra Life began from a very simple start: helping a gaming fan through a disease by giving her video games to keep her spirits up. The project grew from there and is now heavily involved with The Children's Miracle Network.What I appreciate about Extra Life is that they do not make a single penny off of the donations. Not one. 100% of the proceeds go directly to Children's, which is amazing. Private donations help keep the website up and running, and allow for the system to keep going.

So if you need a few laughs on Saturday, come watch me flail around and swear like a sailor on Twitch for Extra Life. Even if you can only spare a dollar, every cent helps kids in need. In the infamous words of Kidd Kraddick, think of it as a good health tax. A number of us are fortunate to have minor health inconveniences or no issues at all. As a way to thank karma, God, or whatever you believe in, help give back to those in need who are not as fortunate. Sometimes something as simple as a video game can brighten a child's year.

After a poll on my Facebook page, I've narrowed down my screen time to include Dead Space and Goat Simulator, the 2 most populist answers. But I've been in super nostalgia mode this week, and the majority of my game time is going to go towards Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.You can't go wrong with Mario and Square. And me, swearing like there's no tomorrow. :)
