This is happening.

For seven years – three as a professional writer – I’ve written about games in some form. Since childhood, I’ve always loved gaming. And now to get to do it for a living is the most wonderful privilege that I have ever been given. And I feel lucky, blessed and thankful to do so.

For years on end, I’ve provided a news service as a freelancer and as a senior editor at VG247, giving back to the news hungry folk. The truth is, however, that’s not really giving back. Which is why I am doing this on behalf of The National Children’s Hospital in Tallaght, Dublin.

The oldest children’s hospital in Ireland and the second oldest in Europe that sees 65,000 children pass through its doors yearly, TNCHT does its best to help children across the Republic of Ireland get the best care they can possibly get in a variety of areas including diabetes, cystic fibrosis, radiology and more, just to name a few.

On October 20, 2012, I’ll attempt to play an epic 24 hour video game marathon and it’s my sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support me with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to The National Children’s Hospital Tallaght. I hope my target is fairly reasonable to make.

Your donation is tax-deductible and all proceeds go to help kids.

Last year, Extra Life raised more than $1.2 million to save kids, but in 2012 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher.

I can’t do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click on this link right here.

So please. Help me give back by donating to the National Children’s Hospital Tallaght. Here’s my timetable for the games I’m going to be streaming.
