Allahweh’s “Extra Life” Charity Drive Coming December 13 – Donate Now!


I had been meaning to take part in some kind of charity event for a long while, but so far I had missed a bunch of opportunities.  In fact, I had wanted to participate in the main Extra Life charity weekend (November 2), but missed it too.  Thankfully, though, I discovered that you could raise money for Extra Life whenever you wanted, so I decided to just pick a weekend and go for it!

So, on December 13, 2013 starting at 7:15PM Pacific (10:15PM Eastern), I will be doing a live-streaming marathon (game or games are yet to be determined) in order to raise $100 for the local Blair E. Batson hospital.  For a total of $100 or less, I will do at least five solid hours of gaming, however, for every $20 over my modest $100 goal, I will play at least one additional hour – potentially indefinitely!  Of course, breaks may need to be taken here and there, but you get the idea!

You can actually start donating now, and that gives me a little less than one month to raise money.  I really hope you can find it in your hearts to donate a little money to the charity.  Plus, if I raise way more than $100 with enough notice before the actual event, I may let you guys decide exactly what I end up playing!

So, direct yourselves to this link here, support the hospital, and advertise it to your friends and networks!
