This year, RPGamer is getting ready to buckle in for a double header of gaming goodness during the annual Extra Life marathon. We'll be playing games all day in order to raise money to help heal kids!
We're going to shake things up this year and give you not one, but two days of streaming. And you even get it early! It's like early Christmas, but for charity. And with games. And streams. And no snow. So it's nothing like Christmas.
Ok, So When?
Due to other commitments taking up Extra Life's official November 7 date, we'll be streaming all Halloween weekend. There will be two giant 12-hour blocks from 9am to 9pm Central Time on October 31 and November 1 at twitch.tv/rpgamer.
Extra Life is an annual charity event where participants pledge to game for 24 hours in exchange for donations. 100% of the money raised will go to a Children's Miracle Network hospital local to the participant. All donations are collected securely by the hospitals. They fund medical care, research, and education that saves and improves the lives of children facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents. You can see the hospital your donation will go to on the Extra Life page of the RPGamer team member you're donating to.
How Do I help?
Go to RPGamer's Extra Life team page at www.extra-life.org/team/rpgamer and sponsor one of our players! RPGamer kindly asks that you consider donating to this worthy cause. Then, be sure to come back and watch the live stream to support the RPGamer participants as they play all weekend on October 31 and November 1. You will be able to chat with the team by registering for chat on Twitch.tv and then chatting on RPGamer's channel.
We can't do this without you, so get excited and help us heal some kids!
