What is the Extra Life Charity?

So you’re going to hear us talking about Extra Life a LOT over the next month. We’ll be asking for your donations, all the while talking about playing games. And a lot of you are going to think it sounds like an excuse to play games or some scam to get your cash. It’s definitely not.

Extra Life is a charity drive that’s been going on for 9 years now. It’s a charity started by the gaming community to give back to the hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network.

People will come together on November 4th to stream game marathons and hold contests and raffles. And we’ll be one of them. We’ll be there for as much of the 24 hour marathon as we can muster. We’ll be acting like idiots and putting ourselves out there in the hopes that you may donate.

Like it or not, we’re in a time where you have to wonder if your charitable donations are going to where you expect. In this case, 100% of your donations will be going to the UK Children’s Hospital. We won’t see a penny of it, and neither will anyone else. Your money goes straight to the hospital and helps the people that need it most.

Here’s where you can find our page, and hopefully choose to donate. You can donate to either of our profiles, as it will all go to the same place.
