Saving Lives Through Video Games


Last year, a friend of mine took part in the Extra Life charity, which, in partnership with the Children’s Miracle Network, treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.

This year, I’ve decided to get involved, along with the rest of the GamerNode crew, and do my part to help these kids who are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, injuries from accidents and many other bad things.

I’ve selected Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte as my Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, as it’s the closest to my area. And on November 2, 2013, along with gamers across the country, my buddy Matt and I will be playing video games non-stop, for 25 (not 24) consecutive hours in an attempt to raise awareness, support and donations for these kids who are fighting for their lives.

We’ll be streaming our session through a link I’ll provide later, so you can watch us grow delirious from a lack of sleep. Maybe you would pay for such entertainment?

Matt and I have decided upon a goal of $400, but we hope to raise much, much more than that. If you feel inclined to donate, you can do so through the link I’ve provided here. I’ll keep you updated as it all comes together and make sure to post the link to where you can watch it all happen.

Thanks in advance to anyone and everyone who donates even the smallest amount! You can make your donations here.
