The "Gamer" or "Video Game" Stigma
You know, The more I think about it, the more I realize that, Extra Life is a way for non-athletes, those of us with physical limitations who can’t run marathons, or triathalons, to raise money for a very good cause.
Just because we aren’t running our butts off in a physical means, doesn’t mean we aren’t pushing ourselves to the limits of our endurance for the cause, to raise money and awareness for the cause we are passionate in. We are Gamers, We are Heroes, we are members of society. We game, it’s what we do well. Just like marathon runners. So, when someone approaches you with an Extra Life link, it’s legit. It’s a legitimate way to raise money for Children’s Hospitals across North America. If you have questions about it, email your local Children’s Miracle Network hospital directly and ask them.
At around 6am I was literally TREMBLING From exhaustion. I mean I was pushing my limits as a human being to keep a commitment to my donors.
I tried to be a hero for the local kids. I hope I made a difference in my own way.
Anyway this is how I logged off at the end of my 24hr City of Heroes run. We had a Milliyun Tiny Pepsimen March earlier in the evening to honour one of our most iconic players on the server, Pepsiman. His incredible sense of humour, wit, and silliness is one the things that makes Guardian such a great place to be. I rolled there because it was at the top of the list, I stayed there because of the friendly people.
