The Extra Life Fundraising event for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals was a great success! My initial goal was set at $400, the end goal that I tried to meet last year, and I was able to surpass that goal and raise a total of $637!
This year, I tried something different and started a Google+ hangout that lasted the entire length of the twenty-four hour gaming marathon. It was an interesting experience trying to live-stream playing games and I wish I was more prepared for it. I made the decision to live-stream only minutes before the marathon began and, I promise, next year will be a lot smoother.
It was a lot of fun and I look forward to participating again next year. I encourage you to participate as well. It is, after all, for the kids…
Thank you everyone who donated and showed their support! Those who gave a monetary donation will actually (if not already) receive a hand-made card thanking them personally for their donation.
