Recommended Posts

Hey Friends!


Another Game Day and another Extra Life milestone! The past month marked a number of fundraising firsts and shattered records, meaning November 2017 saw the entire community step up and raise more money than ever before to help sick and injured kids across North America.


Our monthly updates are sent out to let you all know the important news from around the community. Buckle in, because you’re the best gaming has to offer!

Game Day weekend left our jaws on the floor this year as you all came together to raise over $1.8 million for the kids! The collective efforts of thousands of gamers across all kinds of platforms and mediums pushed us beyond the $7 million mark. It was a weekend of coming together, helping children, and forging memories. We certainly won't be forgetting our milestone celebration anytime soon!

We are proud to announce that Rooster Teeth now holds the honor of being the first team to raise over $1 MILLION! Since they began participating in Extra Life, the RT community has collected more than $3 million for Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas. They're making miracles happen for those kids.

The past month has seen game developers and publishers support Extra Life through Humble Bundle. Our friends at Double Fine Productions created the Day of the Devs Bundle raising over $57K for the kids. For Game Day, we had the opportunity to put together the massive official Extra Life Humble Bundle that brought in an additional $60K with the help of Bandai Namco, Adult Swim Games, Paradox Interactive, DrinkBox Studios, and PAIZO. Reminder: You can support Extra Life with each Humble Bundle purchase by using our partner link.



Continuing to Make Miracles

We may have broken $7 million on Game Day weekend, but the Extra Life community continued fundraising for all of November. That month of fundraising means that Extra Life 2017 has currently raised over $10 MILLION FOR THE KIDS!!! That's truly incredible! Every year, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the US and Canada treat 10 million kids, and it is amazing to see Extra Life step up to try to meet their needs.





We’ve broken a lot of records this year, but remember that there’s still time to do more. Fundraising remains open through December 31st. We put together some fundraising tips for those in the community who want to help us reach $10.5 million before the end of 2017. Get your offline and matching donations in as soon as possible to count toward your 2017 fundraising total! Never stop pushing forward for fun, fellowship, and – as always….



For The Kids,

Mike, Liz, Lou & Jeromy
