So one of our new Game Informer interns, Jack Gardner, recently brought Game Informer Online's involvement in the Extra Life charity to my attention. He told me I could help raise money for sick kids by just playing video games for 24-hours. I have chosen to do this thing, but I need your help.
I have a goal to raise $500, and you can help make this happen by supporting me. All proceeds go directly to sick kids. Read more about joining forces with us here. I've chosen to support Minnesota's Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare.
I'm really looking forward to this. I know it's not for a flashy Guinness marathon or anything, but it's in exchange for helping people and being to play anything besides Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Borderlands 2, Dishonored, and Resident Evil 6 will all be out in time! I know one fellow Game Informer comrade, Jason Oestreicher, will be joining me. We're working on recruiting even more.
Thanks in advance to anyone kind enough to help. If you can't help monetarily, please assist me by sending along a link to this blog post.
Email the author Tim Turi, or follow on Twitter, and Game Informer.
Good Luck! I will support you and participate in Extra Life as well
Way to go, Tim! You inspired me. www.extra-life.org/index.cfm
AWESOME. TEAM GIO is growing, we will raise the most money for the Childrens Miracle Network this year during Extra Life!
That's awesome! Can't wait to see how well we all do this year!
Tim, I have to supporting Gillette is great. My dad has been working there over thirty years, fitting braces and my sister has followed in his footsteps as a nurse there too.
It really means a lot to me and my family that you have chose this for the marathon. For those who aren't privileged to live in Minnesota like Tim and myself and don't know much about Gillette, I can assure you what they have done and still do is awe-inspiring.
Extra Life still won't let me join! Grrrr
I will make sure to send out the blog link Tim!
