Last month, team captain Mike Block let us know a bit about the history of Team Pixel Damage. This month, we would like to give you an opportunity to meet the rest of the team and find out a little bit about why they participate in Extra Life!
Favorite Game to Play: I love all games but if I have to pick, Gloomhaven is my favorite board game and The Legend of Zelda- A Link to the Past is my favorite video game.
This all happened when a friend of mine told me I can help raise money for any hospital of my choice.
This is all for my cousin, she went through more than 2 dozen surgeries from birth to adulthood.
John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital helped her with her most recent full reconstructive surgery of her jaw. This surgery was done to help her speak better and to have a more operable jaw, the Hospital not only paid for the whole surgery but also gave her mom a place to stay for the duration of the stay.
I do this because I want to help children from all backgrounds get care by our amazing Hospitals, just like my cousin.
Favorite Games to Play: Smash Brothers, Avalon and Call of Duty
Why Extra Life? I volunteer for Extra Life because I have seen the difference that The Children’s Miracle network is doing for families from all over. It feels good to help raise funds for such an impactful organization. I haven’t decided which games I will be streaming yet, but I will likely try to find some fun and family friendly games that I can play with friends during the event!
Current Favorite Game: Final Fantasy XIV, pumped for Endwalker
Why Extra Life? I’m a firm believer in protecting and preserving the joy and innocence of every child for as long as possible. After all, they’ll have plenty of time in their adulthood to deal with real-world stress and problems. They should never have to face the fear of things like cystic fibrosis, Crohn’s disease and cancer as well as terrible accidental injuries. It is tragic that little ones should have to endure such adversity, but thankfully Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals are there. They treat children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. How could I say no to supporting their mission?
Current Favorite Game: Star Wars Battlefront II
