Escapists for Extra Life 2020

Hi all!

I’m taking a quick review break to introduce/re-introduce you to my Extra Life donation drive for the Duke Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network hospital. For the past 8 years, I’ve run this drive in order to bring folks together for a few days of gaming at our own mini tabletop convention, and we’ve always had great success raising funds for the sick kids in our community. This year is somewhat different however, among other things, COVID-19 has made it so we cannot have such a gathering, and so this year I’ll be doing the traditional 24-hour gaming drive. It’ll be more difficult to raise money since we aren’t having a big event to invite folks to, but I know with your help, we can still have a great showing and ensure that kids at the Duke Children’s Hospital get the care they need and deserve!

Here’s some of my favorite Extra Life photos from past years. Man, remember gathering with friends? That was the best.

Anytime between now and the end of the year, you can donate to my Extra Life drive here. All donations are 100% tax deductible, and all proceeds go towards helping the kids, rather than “administrative costs.” You can read up on the services provided by Duke Children’s Hospital here, as well as see a breakdown of how they will use your donation to pursue their mission of ensuring no child is left without healthcare. I greatly appreciate any support you can give to advance this worthy cause!

While I cannot give the gift of tabletop gaming this year, I can promise that on November 7th, 2020, I will join with thousands of other gamers to game for 24 hours, (a completely insane thing to do, believe me, I’ve done it twice before,) and stream my gameplay live on Twitch. If you donate between now and the donation drive, please make sure to put your name and ensure the donation is not anonymous, and I’ll give you a shout out in a future post!

Thanks again, and I appreciate your help!
