Extra Life starts at 11AM this Saturday.
Extra Life is our 24 (actually 25 hours because of the time change) hour gaming event for charity.
The picture above shows how we did in 2016, which was our first year of doing this. Our goal was $1000 and we surpassed that goal by over 10%. YAY !!
We always want to make progress, so for 2017 I've raised our goal to $1200. The store needs your help to reach this goal. As you can see from the picture we are almost at 20% of our goal already but there is still work to do.
Come out to the store on Saturday and try some new games. This is our biggest demo day of the year and we will be playing probably close to 30 different games. Some of our game events are tournament style and will offer swag to players and special swag to winners. 100% of the event proceeds go to our charity (more on that later).
Some games will even have ways to 'cheat for charity'. Where you can donate money to get special in game bonuses.
If you don't want to play or learn to play games you can still help. Shop with us during the 25 hour period and a portion of all GAME sales will go to our charity (more on that later). We will be having a game sale all weekend, including a special extra discount for all players participating in any of the events.
You can also just come in an throw any extra change into our donation box. If you would rather write a check to the charity that's fine too. Checks should be made out to CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS.
You can make CASH, CHECK or CREDIT CARD donations at the store. If you prefer to charge a donation directly online to Extra Life you can do that by clicking here.
Our charity hospital that we have selected is JOHNS HOPKINS CHILDREN'S CENTER (Baltimore, MD). This hospital has been very good to my family and I look forward every year to giving back to them.
I deeply appreciate any donations you make.
