Extra Life 2017

Play Games. Heal Kids.


It’s that time of year again. It’s time to help kids who need us.  For the past 8 years, I have participated in a wonderful campaign called Extra Life, raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.  As always, I am raising funds specifically for Hamilton McMaster Children’s Hospital.  To read why this effort has recently become even more personal for me, be sure to visit where you can also donate to this incredibly worthy cause.

Once you donate, your name will be entered into a draw to win some great prizes.  Below is the list of what we’ll be giving away (the list will be modified as prizes are awarded).  Be sure to enter soon to get your name in. Your name will remain in the draw until you win something.  If there are more prizes than participants, you have the chance to win more than once! Donate today!

For every donor who has a PS4, you will automatically get a code for Vagabond Dog’s “Always Sometimes Monsters” (while supplies last!).
