On Saturday I’ll be taking part in YESSQuest, a 24-hour gaming marathon in support of the Youth Emergency Shelter Society of Edmonton. Me and my team, Meeples 4 Peoples, will be playing a wide variety of board games and soliciting funds via social media as we progress. We’ll be camped out at the Edmonton Expo Centre, surrounded by our fellow gamers, and waist-deep in various gaming snacks to get us through the day. And night. And then day again.
I set an initial goal of $200 for my fundraising, and thanks to the generosity of friends, fellow nerds, and co-workers, blew past that fairly convincingly. Now my goal is $300 and I am a scant $75 short of that new goal. If you would like to help get me there (or push me past it so I have to set a new goal) please consider donating on my fundraising page. Any amount helps me hit my target, and helps out a great local charity. Alternatively, you can swing by the Expo Centre starting at noon tomorrow and make a donation in person; just ask to be directed to the Meeples 4 Peoples tables and I’ll be happy to take your moneys.
Thank-you to everyone who has donated so far, and will donate over the weekend. Your support for this great cause is appreciated.
