Charity and community outreach is important to me and for this community. Helping others and contributing to this community’s development is a voluntary choice above and beyond normal community engagement and participation. Donating to the less fortunate allows this community to stand for more than just fun and games.
For those of you who want to help me help others, you can use my Extra Life Donation Portal to register and/or donate to the Extra Life charity gaming marathon to support local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Donations by United States companies and citizens are tax deductible and 100% of these donations go directly to the hospitals. I am registered to support the Children’s National Health System here in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
Direct Financial Support
This community also has the opportunity to directly influence the quality and quantity of my creative content, and to help provide an allowance for community rewards.
