Did you guys know you're awesome? Cuz it's true! The support so far has been phenomenal! And to those who have reached out privately to potentially work together in the future, it's really appreciated!

Status Update:

These are our high bidders as of this post:
 
  1. $250 - chromableedstudios
  2. $200 - thesubcon3
  3. $195 - xelius
  4. $190 - Mega Tank
  5. $185 - sadikyo

This puts our current total at $1,020 going to charity! I really can't express in words how much this helps!

For today's bump, a number of people have reached out asking for more info on the charity itself. Where does the money go exactly? Who are these "children" you speak of?

Extra Life is a charity in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. I try to do them justice but honestly their About Us page is super informative and far better worded than I've ever come up with: https://childrensmiraclenetwork.c...

Basically, anybody can participate in Extra Life and as a participant you support a hospital local to you. My selected hospital is Sick Kids here in Toronto. So every dollar from this auction is going straight into helping to fund research and treatments for kids local to me.

This charity holds a special place for me for two reasons: 1) I love video games, and 2) I was a Sick Kid myself! As a kid I went through a pretty scary bout of Transverse Mielitis during which I lost the use of my legs. You can imagine how scary that is for a kid - I was at home and very suddenly just fell down. I was taken to Sick Kids in Toronto (a few cities away from where I lived at the time) and they took such amazing care of me that it left a lasting impact on my life; happily, I was able to be treated and made a full recovery. Being able to take my hobby and use it to help kids is really a dream come true, and your support really does mean the world to me! It's amazing to me that I can have an active hand in making life maybe just a little easier on these kids.

Hey all, thanks yet again for the bids! It's getting serious now with all the bids being quite high! The current lowest bid to get into this thing is $195! Some serious folks in here doing some serious good for charity!

I'm really busy leading up to Extra Life getting ready for my 24 hour gaming marathon / live stream, but if you have any questions at all feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer quickly and concisely.

Thanks again and good luck bidders!

Quickie bump to remind people this ends tomorrow at 10pm NA Time! 

I'll be taking my 24 hour streaming marathon for Extra Life on a little pause to watch over the end of the auction and send out transactions, so quick reminder to those bidding, if you CAN I'd appreciate if you'd be around for the end of the auction so if you win you can make your donation to Extra Life while I'm still live. I'll be sending out the transactions right at auction's end with details.

Thanks again everyone!

Thanks!

Under an hour left to go in the auction! Remember this is all for charity, and I am broadcasting live on Twitch right now! I'd provide a link but they break here on NA, so I'll type it out oldschool style:

twitch dot tv/glovesoffgames

I'll be sending out the transactions as soon as the auction end, and as I've said, if you can donate right away while I'm still on Twitch that'd be great! I'll be broadcasting for 9 more hours after it ends, so no real RUSH, and certainly no absolute obligation, it'd just be really appreciated!

Thanks again all!
