This year, the year when I probably shouldn’t do it and the year I definitely don’t have the time, I’m going to participate in the Extra Life charity gaming marathon. And I’m super, super excited about it.
Since it’s my first year to do it, my goal is somewhat small, $200, but I would love it if I could raise close to $500. I’d also love it if I could raise enough and have enough fun to do this every year.
So yes, this is a post begging for donations from my esteemed SGR audience.
I plan to have a giveaway for a strategy guide releasing around that time frame for a random SGR donor. At this time, I don’t know what it will be, because I know everyone’s tastes will be different. I hope to have a pick one of three contest. The winner definitely won’t be who donates the most, so don’t worry about that. It’s all about giving something at all. Definitely stayed tuned to see which guides could be up for grabs as a reward for donating. To enter this contest, leave a little note about SGR in your donation comments.
In addition, I will have a vote up and running in October for everyone to pick which games I’ll be playing during this marathon. I’m going to use this time to work through my backlog, so there won’t be any current games or games I’m working on for guide review. There is also discussion to Skype me into a live video feed that the EvilCast podcast team is sponsoring for their marathon.
This whole thing sounds like it will be a blast, even though I’m going to do my 25 hours over 2 days time (I am realistic about what I can do). I hope to see a few of you donate something, no matter how small it is!
Thanks for your support!
