Hulloo all, Brasse the Dwarf here, with a personal challenge for you to raise your game to the next level!
On October 25th, Team SOE will join thousands of gamers to share the joy of gaming, be it online, board games, LARP-ing, or whatever. Together, we will raise money for the Children's Miracle Network charity as part of Extra Life’s annual 24-hour gaming marathon. All proceeds donated will go to the local hospital of each team member!
Why are we doing this?
Our team is on a mission to help kids through the shared fun of gaming, and we need your help. Each of our team members has chosen their local Children's Miracle Network Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay.
These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents. On October 25th, 2014, Team SOE will be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life. It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to any team member's chosen hospital.
Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
Last year, Extra Life raised more than 4 million dollars, and SOE wants to help push it higher! We can't do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click a participant's name and then click the "Support This Participant" button on this page.
If you ever needed a good reason to play games for 24 hours straight, this is it! I will personally write you a permission slip to give to your mom, your significant other, or your kids. Just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet @Brasse and you've got it!
Our goal at SOE is to raise $50,000 this year with our fellow gamers... and have FUN!
My personal challenge to you all: JOIN OUR TEAM... and have FUN!
There are two ways you can participate: join our team to raise money yourself, or donate to those of us who are already taking on this challenge. Either way, you'll be helping children's hospitals directly... and HAVING FUN!
1. Sign up with Team SOE Play it Forward as an individual or as a group (guild, outfit, league, etc.) We are all one huge family - what better way to share our love of gaming? http://www.extra-life.org/team/soe
2. Sponsor one of our team members and donate to the cause in support of our commitment to game for 24 straight hours! http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.teamParticipants&teamID=16093
Team SOE Play It Forward will be livestreaming throughout our 24-hour gaming session. The stream will cover our various participants… on October 25th. Who will be on at 3:15am? I can hardly wait to find out!
Start NOW with TEAM SOE PLAY IT FORWARD!
As I write this, we have ten team members, and have raised $50 dollars. Let's blow those numbers out of the water! http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.teamParticipants&teamID=16093
Thank you for caring for our kids!
This is all about FUN and FAMILY - see you there!
Yer auld Dwarf,
Linda "Brasse" Carlson
