Who is Michael Filaseta to you?...

  • The infallible “nice guy” that you are never averse to conversing with – even on your most introverted of days
  • Continuously smiling colleague who cares about your interaction more than the task at hand
  • The friend that brings you back to your childhood through his insatiable imagination
  • Goes to a movie his 5th time just so you can enjoy and he can de-brief in full
  • Human Video Game Almanac 
  • Mikey blue eyes
  • Fanatical Batman evangelist
  • In his world, normal klutzy maneuvers equals swag
  • Fila – not to be mistaken with the athletic brand popular in the 90s
  • Singer, songwriter and musician
  • Movie and game producer

These are just a few reasons why everyone instantly loves Mike when they come into contact with him. Now, let me explain why he needs our help and generosity:

On October 3rd 2013 Mike was involved in a near fatal car crash on his way to work. His car flipped 3 times into a ditch after trying to avoid a car cutting into his lane on the Northern State Parkway. Due to the roof caving in, Mike suffered catastrophic trauma to his left arm during the rollovers, nearly amputating it all together. After losing a large volume of blood he was transferred to Nassau County Medical Center.

During the 2 week stay at Nassau County Medical Center he endured 5 major reconstructive arm surgeries, some lasting 6 hours a piece. Michael is finally home and starting his road to rehabilitation.

To help Michael with his mounting medical / rehab bills and to solidify his dream of producing the mobile game he has had in production for the past 2 years we have setup two ways to help:

  1. This Sunday January 12th of 2014 at 11 AM, we will be having a fundraising event at Ayhans Shish Kebab in Plainview, NY. Come enjoy all you can eat brunch (on us) with friends, family and coworkers of Michael. You can either bring cash or donate here on our FundRazr page during the event to go towards our $5,000 goal. We will accept donations the first 45 minutes of the event and then we will surprise Michael by bringing him in unknowingly for the last two hours. Please submit your questions to joshua.lory@gmail.com. We have a max of 60 people in the space - first come first serve. 
  2. If you cannot make it to the event or want to help immediately, donate what you can towards our $5,000 goal here on our Fundrazr page. Your gift will be presented as a whole to Michael during the above event.

Thank you so much in advance!
