What is Extra Life?
"On an Autumn Saturday each year since 2008, tens of thousands of gamers have joined together to save the lives of local kids in a celebration of gaming culture that we call Extra Life."
Extra life is a chance for gamers to raise money for local children's hospitals doing what they enjoy, playing games. By visiting their website at extra-life.org you can sign up to raise money for a children's hospital in your area. This year, the event takes place on November 2nd, 2013, beginning at 8am! Optionally, you can pick a date that works better for you.
You can game on whatever you like, however you like, wherever you like and raise money for charity. When you register, you choose a hospital to represent. Registration is free, with an optional Platinum option for $15 that you can upgrade to later. Their webpage has a slew of information on how to optimize your fundraising page, streaming to increase your fundraising efforts, how to ask for donations, and that's just the first 3!
So if you like to game and you want to help raise money for charity, what are you waiting for? Get on over to extra-life.org and register to participate today!
