Hi everyone!

I decided to get together with some of my friends and make a fundraising team for this year’s Extra Life. If you’ve never heard of Extra Life, you can read all about it here.

It’s an amazing fund raising campaign benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals that culminates on November 5th with a 24 hour game-a-thon! Basically you raise money to help sick kids in need and play all the games your little heart can stand! Any kind of games. Video games. Board games. Card games. Sports games, I suppose? I’ll be sticking mostly with board games. But don’t let that stop you from sportsing it up!

I decided to reach out to my followers on Instagram (@magicJMP), all 480 of you (at the time of this writing) and see if you would help my team and I reach our goal of $600! If each of you gives me $1 then we’ll almost be there!

But I’m going to make things a little more interesting:

  • Anyone who reposts this, tags me, and uses the hashtag #ExtraLifeAOGG will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a print from a limited edition 2″x3″ linoleum carving I will be doing. I haven’t decided what the image will be yet, but I’m sure it will be board game related.
  • Anyone who donates at least $10 will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a print from a limited edition 5″x7″ linoleum carving I will be doing. Again, it will more than likely be something board game related.
  • Anyone who donates  at least $50 will just straight-up get one of the 5″x7″ prints in the mail without having to have their name drawn from a hat.
  • And if someone wants to donate $100, I will carve a 5″x7″ linoleum block with whatever art they want, print 10 copies for them, and give them the linoleum block when I’m finished.

HERE is the link to my Extra Life donation page.

So repost this, tag @magicJMP, use the hashtag #ExtraLifeAOGG, and donate if you can! And make sure to include your Instagram handle in the comments section if you donate. That way I’ll know who’s who.

This is going to be a lot of fun and we’re going to do great things for a lot of kids!
