Ok, it’s now reaching crunch time. Extra Life is almost here, and it’s shaping up to be the biggest one yet! So my question for you, if you are a gamer (and if you visit this site, you probably are), why aren’t you here with us? Seriously, think about that question for a second. On Nov. 2nd, gamers the world over will let loose on their couches, in front of their PCs, around the kitchen table, and in various halls for 25 hours of nonstop gaming time with friends, family, online, and anywhere they are… and this will happen in the name of helping kids who are seriously sick. We have a chance to do what we love, and help out someone who really needs it in the process. Why not be a part of that?
Already this year we have over 10,000 players the world over, and we are looking to shatter records again, but we will need everyone who enjoys their time with a controller or a mouse to be a part of it. Are you interested? Then why not sign up and start getting donations? You can do so right here. Not sure? Well Doc was kind enough to include a page with all the information in one nice neat space you can see here. Please have a look. And what if you can’t play on the 2nd? Well, life has a way of getting in the way, but don’t worry too much about that. Extra Life is a very flexible event, and raindates are always welcome!
But I’m sure there are a few of you who are not gamers reading this, and you too can help our cause. If you can’t or don’t like to play, why not? There is no set amount you have to place, but it all goes to local hospitals via the Children’s Miracle Network. You can help children wherever you are via the main page where you can search out players by name and team. Their profile will contain a panel saying which hospital they are backing. In our case, we are currently playing for the Boston Children’s Hospital and if this is who you want to support, the easiest way to donate would be to click the thermometer on the right-hand side of this page to reach our team-page. If you want to help directly, feel free to join us or to help us raise more donations for them. Let’s see how much we can bring to help the kids out.
