A few months ago, I created the first Gaming & Giving Back Challenge. It was successful and I loved participating in each challenge. Some were harder than others and each event was rather entertaining!

Welcome to PART TWO of my Gaming & Giving Back Challenge!

  29. Donate a gift to charity
  30. {This challenge can be completed on Saturday night} Encourage people to donate to a charity. 24 hours of Gaming. Donate $1 per hour to sponsor. Find your own sponsors and get this movement happening! Gaming & Giving Back at it’s finest moment. I am still working on the details and if you could offer any assistance, I would love the support.

I was unable to complete the first Gaming & Giving Back Challenge due to some personal life issues which included switching jobs and moving. So I thought it was time to create a new challenge. I am incorporating the uncompleted challenges and modifying them based on my first run through.

I think it is really important to give back to people in the community. I have always tried to do what I could to help other people. By doing the Gaming and Giving Back Challenge, I am able to record some of my experiences.

Hope you enjoy this and maybe you will be inspired to do your own!

  1. I’m looking for regular updates on this list. I understand how you couldn’t do the last challenge but I’m hoping you can do this one.
    I’m watching this space.

  2. for the 360 Review, try one of the Gears of War games. The 1st and 2nd are great and the 3rd is coming out this fall.
