Hey there Friends, Family, and Gamers! Last year was a pretty cool year. My favorite thing from last year started back in September when I found out about Extra Life. I joined up with this charity to help Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. I started collecting donations for the charity and made up an incentive to gain more support. I ended up with around $560 in donations and a hot pink mohawk. I was amazed at the support I received. Thank you to all the amazing people that helped out with that.
Getting donations to help out Primary Children's Hospital is kind of a big deal for me. I have friends who travel from other states to bring their kids there for treatment. My late wife was there a few times also. She had a form of cancer that usually only shows up in children and they had a little more experience with it there. The place is really nice and the staff was awesome. As crappy as chemo and other treatments were for her she never had a bad thing to say about the staff and the facility. I kind of think of gathering support for them as my way of paying them back for the great way she was treated there.
I have signed up to do it again this year. This time I have a full year to get support for this hospital. I have set my first goal to $800 to try and beat last year. If we hit that goal the Pink Mohawk returns and I will keep it for a month. For every $100 over the $800 I will keep it an additional month.
If we somehow hit $1000 in donations I will have to think of something else to celebrate that. I’m willing to take suggestions.
So let’s turn me into a pink mohawked geek. Please make a safe, easy donation online today. Click the "Support This Participant" button on the donation page to get started. Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
