For those of you who have checked out my blog for a while now, you might remember a fundraising quest my nephew and I took on last year.

Well....we are back for another year with loftier goals.

"Kyle 4or Kids" was a blog I created for my nephew Kyle and I to get our message across.  And what is that message?

We are raising funds for the Alberta Children's Hospital.

Ny nephew isn't doing a 5k run or a math olympics (boy...that would be fun), or baking cookies.  No, he's partaking in a huge 24 hour video game marathon on Saturday, November 7, 2015 organized by Extra Life.

Last year we came oh so close in hitting our $500 fundraising goal.  We raised $440 (and a huge THANK YOU to all who donated).  That was a big number in our eyes.  But we're going bigger this year.

$700 is the number set by my nephew.  Can we do it?  Absolutely.

So bear with me as I try and solicit some donations or even just some awareness.  I'll do my best to put on a contest or two to try and entice you as well.

Thank you for your time.


  1. Is he going 24 hours in a row this time?

    1. No. Still too much of a grind.

      He's doing 14 straight on Nov. 7 and 2 hours each night on the week leading up.

      Same as last year.

  2. Are you planning some retro action. You can borrow my Atari or Pac-Man if you want.

    1. My old school Atari is over there ready for another round of "what the heck is this" from his buddies.

      I'm actually on the verge of securing an Atari classic system that we hope to use as a prize to one lucky donor.

      In fact, we have a few prizes that have been donated by some great people and organizations.

      Stay tuned.
