Tonight I did my Virtual Bowl-A-Thon on the Wii. I bowled two games in an effort to raise money for the Niemann-Pick Childrenâ€™s Fund. Dina Riccobono of Market Leverage encouraged me to do this since I could not make it to the event that they held down in Florida. So, I was there in spirit. I did pretty well too. You can watch the recorded video from Stickcam, which shows the games as they are played.
I also created a video after and during the bowling.
It was fun, I wish that there were people in the chat room that I could talk to between each frame or each game but that is okay. What I really hope is that people will sponsor me at $0.10 a pin per game. I bowled a 181 in Game 1 and a 191 in Game 2. It must have been something about bowling for charity because that was the best I’d bowled in a long time and I even made (Pro) in Wii Bowling after Game 1. So if you’d like to donate $18.10 for Game one or $19.10 for Game two or even $37.20 for the whole night then please go directly to The Niemann-Pick Childrenâ€™s Fund Donation page. (You could round things up 🙂 I won’t tell 🙂 )
The other part of this was that I sent down some hats and some calendars to give as door prizes to the people who participated. I even sponsored Tim Jones on Team Affiliate Summit. I hope that he did well. His team came in second overall so that is great to hear.
Here are a couple more of the photos I took using the intervalometer while I bowled.
I can’t believe how trim I look in this shot, camera angles I guess.
I thought the White Man Overbite was just for dancing.
Dina Riccobono of Market Leverage sent me information on a Charity Bowl-A-thon that ML is doing on Tuesday March 31st.
Market Leverage is sponsoring this Charity Bowl-A-Thon for the family of one of their publishers. Brisan and Parker Stults are the two eldest sons of Mike and Jennifer Stults. Brisan and Parker were recently been diagnosed with a rare genetic neurodegenerative disease called “Niemann Pick Type C Disease (NPC)” or also known as the”Childhood Alzheimer’s”. The outcome…Fatal.
As a father I am terrified about childhood diseases and anything that could hurt our little Eva. My heart goes out to the Stults family and if we lived in the Orlando Area I’d certainly be there bowling with the gang from Market Leverage. However I can still help even though we are far away. You can help as well. There are many ways to sponsor bowlers, lanes, t-shirts, you name it sponsorship opportunities abound. One of my blogger friends Tim Jones is going to be participating. I intend to sponsor his bowling for the night at 10 cents a pin. Let’s hope he bowls a perfect game. There are many other ways to sponsor the event. Take a look and help however you can, no donation is too small.
I can’t be at the event but I can be bowling that night, Wii Bowling. Would anyone like to sponsor me at $0.10 a pin as I play 2 games of Wii bowling? You can make the donation directly to the Stults family on their blog through paypal or you can donate via a check. I’ll bowl two games, video it and let you know my final pin count. Then you can make the donation to the fund. I’ll be Wii Bowling March 29, 2008, I’ll post the final pin count and video after the game and you can make a donation based on the pin count. How does that sound?
