Kids Play Marathon Video Games - We Donate Online - Poor Kids Get Schools, Water, other Neat Stuff
The Troppolis sent me news about their son Tim who is quite an inspirational young humanitarian whose charity has built schools in Central America and Africa. Take a look and help Tim out!
Tim Troppoli, son of Donna and Ron, originally created his web site (www.extralives.org) to satisfy high school service hours requirements. A little over a year later, he has raised almost $50,000.00 for various charities by hosting video gaming marathons with his friends.
In past marathons, Tim has raised enough money to build three schools (in Kenya, Ecuador and Sierra Leone) through a Canadian charity, Free the Children (www.freethechildren.org), whose founders have been honored by the Canadian government.
Tim's next marathon for Free the Children starts on Thursday, December 30 at 12:00 noon and goes on through New Year's weekend. Donations are fully tax deductible, can be made through PayPal at his web site through January 31, 2011. Let's help Tim and his friends build school number four!
Thanks for donating, and a healthy, happy and serene New Year to all!
The Troppoli Family
PS - Whenever the brave Crane House Players take to the stage, they can always look up to see Ron and Donna Troppoli, equally brave, smiling back at us.
