Help Us Fight Pediatric Cancer through Extra Life

tchpic1Salutations, I hope everyone is doing well,

As anyone who has been talking to me the last few weeks knows, I have been promoting Extra Life, a 24-hour gaming marathon to help raise money in support of The Texas Children’s Hospital to fight against pediatric cancer.   

We are currently looking for a location for the event and need your help in finding a venue for October 17.  If anyone has any connections or any knowledge on possible avenues to take to find a location, please contact us.  We are looking to hold a lock-in type event with the main activity being video games. This charity event is a one-night only event and we are willing to hold it in locations both large to small.  Any information on possible locations would be appreciated.

Also a note to all Houston area people, we will be holding a few information nights and fundraisers along the way before the Oct 17th event. We have one tentatively set for Aug 22nd at the CoffeeGroundz in Midtown Houston at 6pm. 

CoffeeGroundz is located 2503 Bagby Houston, TX 77006. Check out their site for more information. We would love if you joined us on that night to show your support.

To everyone else who are not in the Houston area, there are many ways to help out. You can sign up to participate and take part in your own gaming marathon. You will be participating with gamers all over the globe. We are always looking for more people to join us to take part in this noble cause.  When you do sign up, you will be given a fundraiser page to collect donations.

We are using social networking as a big tool to gain exposure and we will be using Twitter and Facebook to our advantage. Sponsorships are also greatly appreciated if you cannot participate directly. You may donate here.

Lets do our best, think big, and make an impact for The Texas Children’s Hospital.  If you have feedback or questions, contact me personally.  Also, please visit the site to find further information about opportunities with support and participation and also any other questions you may have concerning the event.
