Hello fellow W-er's. For the fourth year in a row I will be participating in Extra Life on October 20th, 2012. For those that don't know, Extra Life is a 24 hour charity video game marathon. All proceeds go to the Children's Miracle Network.

Last year I raised $1,207. Because I had raised so much I was asked to visit the Children's Hospital in Richmond and got to tour the facilities to see where the money went. That moment for me was a bit life changing and I made it my goal to raise even more this year.

I started raising donations at the beginning of July and am now currently sitting at $1,450 raised. By the time that October 20th rolls around I'm hoping to have raised $2,000.

In 1981 my brother was born with a cleft palate. His upper lip was split in half. Our family would NEVER have been able to get him the care and surgeries he needed without the help from the Children's Hospital in Richmond. Now, 31 years later, you would have never known that he had any surgeries or medical problems.

This is why I work so hard every year for this. Every child deserves an opportunity to get the health care they need. With your donation you're helping everyone who cannot help themselves.

If you'd like to donate, here is the link to my page Click Here (extra-life.org). Your donation will be great appreciated. In addition I plan to live broadcast the whole event again this year. It's not an exciting feed by any means, but I like to do it so you all can see that I follow through.

Thank you all so much for reading!

Aside from an obligatory Mega Man 1&2 run through at the beginning of the day, and a marathon 50 turn game of Mario Party...no clue. My friends come over at random points during the day with games and I usually play them. The first year I did the endless set list from Rock Band 2 and that ate up a good 6 hours for me. But it's up in the air right now!

Just a quick update on the fundraising front. Originally I was scheduled to participate on October 20th, but now that date has been changed due to schedule conflicts to October 13th.

Currently I've raised $1,610. I really would love to raise $2,000 for the children. I know that times are hard, but even the smallest donation will get me closer to that $2,000 goal.

I'll even throw this out there...if anyone here donates over $10 I will change my avatar on here to a picture of their choosing...as long as it's nothing offensive that will get me kicked or banned.

With Extra Life only 17 days away (for me) it's rapidly becoming crunch time. Donations are needed to help the children. Let's help them together.

Too cheap as you're too cheap to donate over $10 or my tactics are too cheap? Because when it comes to Extra Life, I'm as bad of a shill as Mick Foley. *thumbs up!*

I'm saying $10.01 to force you into an embarrassing avatar is a BARGAIN. Has nobody taken you up on it yet? I am a little shocked. I mean, if it falls to me, I'll DO it, but I figured somebody would have pounced on that by now.

Leroy has donated and has first choice. After that it's fair game. I'll change my avatar as the donations come in (let's HOPE they do!)

And let's sweeten the pot a bit. Any donation over $25 will get to pick my twitter avatar! You can follow me @kingofkeith.

You mean I didn't buy this for the whole YEAR!!?!

Bummer, man. Bummer.

I'll admit, it was a maniacal choice on my part.
