It’s that time of year again, Extra Life Game Day. A chance to give back to the gaming community, and raise money for one of the best causes ever, for the kids! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Extra Life, it’s a group that benefits Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, and raises money for children with diseases and illnesses. Every year Extra Life picks one day as their “Game Day” in which gamers are encouraged to stream for 24 hours straight, playing games, and raising money for the organization. Game Day 2016 is November 5th, starting at 8am Eastern Standard Time.
Last year was our first time participating in Extra Life. We started off with an original goal of $500 and surpassed it immediately, raising nearly $3,000 by the end of our 24 hour stream. This year we’re hoping to raise $5,000. Since Daylight Savings takes place during the stream, we’ll be going for an extra 25th hour, ending on Sunday morning at 8am. Al and George will be hosting the stream, and joined by some special guests. This year we also plan on hosting a few giveaways for those who contribute to our goal of $5,000.
For any sales that are made on our store during Extra Life, 25% of all proceeds will be donated to Extra Life. This is a great time to check out the store and buy something, while still supporting the charity.
We’re super excited about Extra Life. If you’d like to make a pledge, use this link. We’ll make sure that it’s readily available during Extra Life Game Day.
