But now I'm going to use such games to benefit more than just myself. I'm going to play video games for charity- specifically, for the Golisano Children’s Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
GCH is a local Children's Miracle Network Hospital and it treats thousands of children each year- even with the economy being what it is. Said kids suffer from a lot of things that ONLY belong in creatures and AMPUTHEATRE Slashers that The Gil-Monster makes: cancer, cystic fibrosis, injuries from accidents... ad depressum.
So on Oct. 20th, 2012, I'll attempt to play an epic 24-hour video game marathWHUH!? TWENTY-FOUR HOURS OF STRAIGHT GAMING!?!?!? JESUS BUTTON-MASHING CHRIST; is THAT what I signed on to do!? After only five hours of straight gaming is when a cholesterol-brick with a note tied to it flies up my throat and into my cranium reading "Brain: STOP PLAYING NOW or we varicose the legs. Love, The Circulation"! So 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 my hospiWAIT a minute: the TWENTIETH of OCTOBER!? The day before my WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!?!? OH, for... ARRRGGHHH!!! "Happy Anniversary, sweetheart! I got you ME: atrophied, trembling and bloodshot!!" I'm unable to personalize any more of this while I'm cowering beneath my desk; take it away, form letter!

...Okay, I'm back. Please give generously. Looks like something fairly simple, like a dollar or two per hour that I play? (It adds up if a lot of you do it.) And it's been added to the sidebar.
