Hi everyone!

If you know me, you probably know that I do Extra Life every year, and 2017 is no different! If you don’t feel like clicking that link, Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. I’m playing for Sick Kids in Toronto, so all of the money I raise goes directly to them. And this year, I’m extra-happy because they’re allegedly curing allergies, which is kind of a big deal for me.

So here’s the ask: Pledge! I have a fundraising page on Extra Life’s website, and you can donate there with your credit card. If you prefer not to do that, but still want to support me, you can send me a cheque (made out to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals), or give me cash in some way and I’ll make sure it gets where it needs to go.

To those who’ve already donated: Thank you thank you THANK YOU! If you can’t, that’s totally fine too. Kind words of support are also really great, and you can always drop into my livestream to see what I’m playing (Note: I can’t livestream Nintendo Switch gameplay, so if you see a note saying I’m playing Switch, come back in a bit). I’ll be starting at 08:00 this Saturday, November 4th and going right up to 08:00 on Sunday morning. Yes, that includes the 1 hour Daylight Savings Time rollback.

A HUGE Thanks in advance to my wonderful lady-friend/partner-in-crime/copilot/pit-crew Brooke. For the past 5 years she’s really gone above and beyond to make sure I remain fed, hydrated, and awake (especially in the last few hours!)

So what’ll I be playing? Lots of stuff! Here’s a short list, but there will likely be others, and I might not get to all of them. I’m very open to suggestions – leave a comment, or message me some other way if there’s something you’d like to see me crush (or utterly fail at)!

  • Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars
  • Overwatch (With my good-good boys AKA The Squanch Squad)
  • Stardew Valley
  • Portal Speedrun
  • Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Master Mode
  • FTL: Faster than Light
  • Elite: Dangerous
  • DOOM(2016)

Thanks again to all who donate. It’s my honor to game my little heart out For The Kids.
