Extra Life / 24 in 24 2010 is History

…literally! Last year I personally raised a little over $900 towards a grand event total of $170,000. This year you guys helped me push that to a whopping $1324 (and still counting!) towards an even more whopping $420,000! These numbers are great in themselves, but what’s even better is the difference to they’ll make to so many people’s lives – so thank you from them as well as from me!

Video Stream Details

Just like last year there will be a live stream of the whole event, so you can tune in to check I’m still alive (or just mock me as I play Dora the Explorer – whichever you prefer). The link is below, you’ll need the flash plugin installed. The stream will go live shortly before 8am EST on Saturday.

It’s Back!

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again – time for me to update my blog! But more seriously, it’s Extra Life time, when I try and persuade you to hand over cold hard cash by playing games for 24 hours straight. I didn’t think it would work, but with the added guilt trip of sick kids last year I raised an amazing $913. I don’t like odd numbers, so this year I’m aiming for a nice round $1000. Head over here for more details or just jump straight to my donation page to make it official.

After the Dust had Settled

So it’s all over (at least for this year!). Thanks again to everyone who supported me in 24 Games in 24 Hours, the good news is that I raised a total of $913. The entire Second Life campaign this year generated over $140,000 for the kids who need it.

It’s Finally Here!

Just about to try and get a good night’s sleep before starting 24 Games in 24 Hours bright and early tomorrow morning. Firstly a massive thanks to everyone who contributed, the current total is just over $900 which is way beyond what I had hoped for going into this. There are some reasonably famous gaming glitterati playing tomorrow who haven’t raised nearly as much…so I’m very excited to be able to help out the hospital in such a big way.
