You know what makes me feel awesome when I'm having a blah day like today?

Sponsoring a friend, for an exceptionally worthy cause, who's participating in a huge fund-raising event this very Saturday to benefit sick kids.  It's tax deductible, and 100% of your money goes to CMN hospitals, but DO IT FOR THE SICK KIDS!

I just donated $1.13 to a friend's Extra Life campaign, just to deny her the nice, even number they had reached.  Now me, I just love the number 75.  It would just cook my goose if something happened that altered that total on my fundraising page.  I also adore two-digit figures, so sending it above that would almost certainly short circuit my brain.

Next weekend is this year's Extra Life event so time is running down for you to make a donation to this year's effort.  I promise you that you will have trouble finding a more worthy charity who makes better use of your money.  Fully one hundred percent of your donation goes to Children's Miracle Network hospitals, and it's completely tax deductable.  There's even a link after you donate to print out the receipt for your tax forms, so it's one less thing you have to worry about in the spring.

Please take a minute and consider even a very small pledge, and I mean even a buck.  No gift is too small (or too large) to help sick and injured children.  Huge thanks to +Kit Thornton  and +Mike Niedzalkoski  for their generosity.  I would love to see more of you join them in supporting this exceptionally worthy cause.  Thanks for everything!

Hey, give me a dollar.

Yes, you.  And by "me", I actually mean Cincinnati Children's Hospital.  Only ten days until this year's Extra Life event, where Team Tailgate365 will once again be raising money to help sick and injured children all over the world.  

So today I am asking if you will follow the link below and donate even just one dollar to support this enormously worthy cause.  All one hundred of your pennies will go directly to Children's Miracle Network hospitals and your body will release lots of endorphins, making you feel awesome for your support.

So come on, you already spent a buck today on that pop or a pack of gum or that dollar menu chicken sandwich.  This dollar will satisfy you in a whole different way.  Plus you'll have my sincere gratitude, as well as that of kids at CMN hospitals all over the world.  

Thanks for reading and for your help!  PS - more dollars are fine, too. ;-)

You asked for it, nay, demanded it! A brand new Tailgate365 Radio Podcast, in which we discuss NFL draft, NHL playoffs, somebody mutters something about the NBA, Trials: Evolution and I utter the FORBIDDEN WORD. Twice. And Octoporn. And it's all FREE, just for you!

I thought it was weird when my employer started working on a new landscape feature, but then I started to sense what was going on.  Sure enough, aerial recon confirms the suspicion. +Joe Philley +Brandon Badger +Brian Rose +Anne Beuttenmüller  #ingress   #ingressinvite   #ingressinviteplease

Big thanks again to all who have donated to this year's Extra Life marathon. Tomorrow morning is where the rubber hits the road, the Red Bull hits the bloodstream, and I will have to hit the treadmill to stay awake. 

I will probably be doing some live streaming as well if you want to check in and make sure that I'm still on the job, or to ridicule me screaming at the TV, etc.

It's till not too late to donate, so if you want to feel really good about yourself and know that you are doing something really worthwhile this week, please click below and offer a buck or two to Children's Miracle Network hospitals.

Thanks!

Just five days to go until this year's Extra Life event where I'll be (and I hope you, too) supporting Cincinnati Children's Hospital!  Seriously, for those of you in the region, I don't know if you realize how fortunate we are to have a truly world-class facility like that here.

For 2012-2013, US News ranks Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center:

#3 Cancer

#8 Cardiology & Heart Surgery (#1 in my book, though, they saved my daughter's life)

#5 Diabetes & Endocrinology

#3 Gastroenterology

#1 Neonatology

#3 Nephrology

#4 Neurology & Neurosurgery

#4 Orthopedics

#2 Pulmonology

and #4 Urology

That's a top five ranking for practically everything they even measure and top ten for everything, so if you have kids, if you know a kid or were maybe once a kid yourself, I hope you will take a minute and consider even a very small donation to help support this stellar resource that we share.  One hundred percent of your donations goes to support the hospital and you can print your tax forms right from the site when you donate.

Now, if hard data doesn't do it for you, if that didn't inspire you to log onto Extra Life at http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=29413 and donate even a dollar, then let me appeal to your emotions with the following video:

Happy Payday, friends and casual acquaintances!

As many of you know, I am once again participating in Extra Life, a 24-hour game marathon in support of Children's Miracle Network hospitals. I play to benefit Cincinnati Children's Hospital specifically, given that they have performed life-saving heart surgery on one of mine, fixed the broken arm and pneumonia of another and bailed my ass out of the fire as a kid more times than I can remember.

This is a truly great cause and ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of your donation goes to benefit CMN hospitals. You really can't ask for better than that. This year's event is on October 20th and Team Tailgate365 will be at it once again, each of us benefitting our local hospital.

Please consider even a small donation if you're able, or even joining our team. The more the merrier. It actually gets sorta disturbingly merry around hour 18. You can donate at the link below, and THANK YOU!!!

On October 20th, history repeats itself. We'll be once more participating in Extra Life, the benefit for Children's Miracle Network hospitals. There aren't many charities who can say that 100% of your donation goes straight to helping kids all over the world.

I am playing in support of Cincinnati Children's Hospital again, whose staff and surgeons saved my daughter's life. I will never be able to repay them for that (although they seem to have itemized it up pretty specifically), and they do the same for thousands of other kids every year.

So, please consider a donation of any amount, and seriously consider joining us this year!
