Fundraising: A Huge Thank You to Reddit

Recommended Posts

2019 is the 8th year Reddit has partnered with Extra Life to raise money and heal kids. This year marked the first time the company has been able to form a Super Team, an umbrella team that allows large organizations to bring their many communities into the fold. Together with some of the biggest internet communities around, Team Reddit was able to raise almost $150,000 USD for kids in Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the United States and Canada! 

 

One of the special drives Reddit pushed in the lead up to Game Day was a special Extra Life trophy and award. The award, purchased with 500 Reddit Coins, cost the same as giving Reddit Gold and conferred the same benefits upon the recipient. Those who donated the Extra Life Charity Award were given a special Extra Life themed trophy to display on their Reddit profiles. As part of this initiative, Reddit matched the first $15,000 USD of Reddit Coins purchased during that time.

In total, Reddit was able to bring over 400 people together across 38 teams to almost reach their goal of $150,000 USD. The top three teams among those 38, excluding Reddit itself, were Reddit Remotes!, Fortnite, and Team Soraka (the r/leagueoflegends community). Thank you so much to Reddit for organizing their Super Team this year and thank you to all of the Redditors who supported Extra Life this year to help sick and injured kids at their local hospitals. You're really making a differences in the world. 

 

Extra Life might have one main Game Day per year, but we accept donations and support at all times! If you would like to sign up and fundraise under the Team Reddit umbrella or donate to help them reach their goal, you can do so before the end of 2019. Just head to the Team Reddit Extra Life page and go from there.

 

It's never too late to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games! Donations for 2019 are accepted year-round!
