Details of Eric’s Goal are below.
Hi I’m Eric Neustadter and this year I’m raising money and awareness for my local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, Seattle Children’s Hospital.
On October 16th, 2010 I’ll attempt to play video games for 24-hours straight, and I’ve asked you to come by in hopes that you’ll support me by giving just $1.00 per hour ($24 total).
Your donation is tax-deductible and 100% of your gift goes to help heal sick kids, here in Seattle, WA.
This Fall, my fellow Extra Life gamers are going to make miracles happen for kids. I can’t do that without your support. My goal is to raise $2,500.00.
On October 16th you’ll be able to follow the fun on twitter – where I’m @thevowel – and on my blog (http://www.thevowel.com). We’ll be playing lots of Xbox 360 games, as well as some great offline games like Munchkin and Risk. Maybe we’ll even give the
Dreamcast, the Jaguar, and some other classics some love.
I’ll be doing my best to involve my partners in crime at work, including @majornelson, @lauralollipop, @stepto, and as many others from the Xbox team as I can.
Thank you for your time, support, and participation.
