Join N4G as We Game for the Children's Miracle Network

Cat|2395d ago |Blog Post|29|

Hey, N4Gers!

N4G Moderators Odion, JL, cgoodno and I are leading the N4G team to charity victory - want in? As gamers in Extra Life's annual 24-hour video game marathon you can join the N4G team and get some play time in or you can donate and help us reach our fundraising goal!

All contributions will benefit local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Any contribution will help and all donations are tax deductible.

Our team fundraising goal is $5000 - which is huge for our first year, but c'mon...we can so do this!

If you would like to be part of the N4G team by playing just go here: All gaming counts - PC, console, mobile, board...just game!

If you want to be part of the N4G team by donating choose any of our participant profiles on that page and donate!

Some other stuff: Want to play 24 hours but not for 24 hours straight? That's cool, just clock 24 hours in the time frame you choose! This is about the kids, after all - any Achievements/Trophies/etc. earned is just icing on the very real cake.

BONUS: If you join the team OR donate $24 or more to one of the N4G team's participants you'll be entered to win a swag bundle from our swag closet. This is a grab bag of posters, t-shirts, buttons, bags, and dog tags to name a few from GDC, E3, PAX...or stuff that showed up in the mail.
1. Swag bundle is open to all except for employees of HAVAmedia and immediate relatives. You do not have to be a registered N4G user to win.
2. Closing date is 15th October 2011
3. The winner will be chosen by and notified via email or N4G ticket on or after October 16, 2011.
4. Failure to reply to notification within fourteen (14) days results in forfeiture of prize.

I'm slightly confused. Do I just play and N4G pays, or what?

Cat2395d ago

You've got options - you can join the team (or another team, or as an individual) and you just game! You get a link to your page like and that's where people can donate towards your personal goal. Money they give to you on your page goes to the hospital of your choice! (and counts toward the team's goal)

Or, you can just donate to someone if you don't feel like gaming but want to give!

snowb4202395d ago

Well I registered, thanks for the info.

WildArmed2395d ago

Don't feel like gaming?

Cat2395d ago

Nice! Welcome snowb420, skv007, and Criminal! (@skv - I know, I know, "don't feel like gaming", on the off chance someone wandered onto N4G by mistake? :D )

Criminal2395d ago

Basically, the N4G staff will spend 24 hours straight to play games in support of a great cause; we can support them by donating and/or joining in to keep them going. We donate.

On topic, things like this make me proud to be a gamer. I'm in.

"2. Closing date is 15th October 2011"

So I can sign up really close to the date? That's good, because I can really only do this if I have off of work that day and the day after (for sleep).

Hope I can participate. There's nothing more sad than someone dying before they get a chance to live a full life.

Cat2394d ago

Don't stress about getting your game time in on the 15th - nobody is going to be at your door checking. It's still in the spirit of the marathon and fundraising if you get your hours in at another time!!

SilentNegotiator2394d ago

True, but that's no fun. I'd rather do the 24 hours along side everyone else :)

JL2394d ago (Edited 2394d ago )

I, like Cat, won't be doing the 24hrs on the 15th. First off, I'm just too old to be sitting and gaming for 24hrs straight. And I work through the weekend. So, it would be impossible for me to game all the way through that Saturday.

It's much more likely that I'll split my time up between the few days prior to that.

Or, another option is: my "weekend" is actually Monday-Tuesday, those being the days I'm off work. So, I could maybe squeeze in a 24hr session there. Or at least a couple 12hr sessions.

P.S. Cat, if I split up my time and the Marathon-Donation Police show up at my door, you are so paying for my bail :P

Theo11302395d ago

For some reason I'm assuming this only pertains to playing on consoles.

WildArmed2395d ago

Nay, it's also for Steam / Rift / and others!

Cat2395d ago (Edited 2395d ago )

And mobile and board and D&D, Farmville? It's time for Theo to give in and embrace his inner gaming-for-charity gnome.

WildArmed2395d ago

Also, if I don't get any sponsors, I'll make it my personal goal to donate 20$ from my pocket.

ISKREEM2394d ago

I like that idea, I'm going to do the same.

fear882395d ago

Count me in. Im always good for a charity.

-Mezzo-2395d ago (Edited 2395d ago )

I wish i had a Debit or Credit Card to Donate & participate. =[

All i have is cash.
