Playing Games to Heal Sick Kids

By Public Service Announcement

Frequent contributor Jim H. Moreno often plays games with a vengence. Now he’s playing them with a purpose – to raise money for Children’s Hospital of Alabama. ACG is running the following information from Jim as a public service announcement.

As you may already know, I love video games.

What you might not know is that I am even more passionate about helping my local Children’s Miracle Network hospital to heal sick kids.

On October 16th, 2010 I’m bringing these two unlikely interests together as I attempt to play video games for 24 hours straight (it’s harder than it sounds).

It’s the 3rd annual Extra Life video game marathon, and I would really appreciate your sponsorship.


Would you be willing to donate $1.00 for each hour I play ($24.00 total) to help me raise money for Children’s Hospital of Alabama?

Please visit my personal Extra Life page and make a gift today. All donations made are collected securely and fund medical care, research and education that saves and improves the lives of the 17 million children treated at local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals each year.

Come on, gamers! Help me out by sponsoring me, or by sending me a case of Mountain Dew! 🙂

I can’t do this without you. If you can, please take just a moment to make a gift in any amount that you feel comfortable with.

Thank you!

Thank you!

Thank you!


Jim Moreno
