Hello Extra Lifers!
This September, Extra Life continued to grow bigger and better than ever! Between PAX West, Extra Life Tabletop Appreciation Weekend and the #CheerForKids campaign with Twitch, our community continued to amaze us! Now that Child Health Day is right around the corner, we’re hoping to raise the bar this October as we continue to support our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Twitch and #CheerForKids
September was Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we partnered with Twitch to raise money for sick and injured kids with Bits and Cheers! For every 1,000 Bits cheered with #charity, Twitch donated $2! Over 32,000 Twitch users cheered, resulting in over $110,000 donated!
Extra Life @ PAX West
The Seattle Extra Life Guild absolutely ROCKED it at PAX West earlier this month. They talked with thousands of attendees, signing 600+ people up to participate in Extra Life 2017. Those new members of the community will contribute their support to 68 of our 170 member hospitals. A big thank you to the Seattle Guild, and welcome to all of our new Extra Life participants!
Tabletop Appreciation Weekend
#CommitForTheKids for Child Health Day
Every minute, 62 kids enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. On Child Health Day this October 2nd, we aim to raise funds and awareness for our 170 member hospitals to help those kids. We could use your help! We are asking gamers everywhere to #CommitForTheKids by making a donation or registering for Extra Life.
The Extra Life community is on fire with new registrations and raising money for sick and injured kids. Help us show the world what makes Extra Life so great, whether that’s by getting a group of friends to play tabletop games or by surpassing your fundraising goal and gunning for more. Keep that energy going by pushing forward for fun, fellowship, and – as always….
For The Kids,
Mike, Liz, Lou & Jeromy
