  1. Every hospital is different. Each of the wonderful places that is supported by Extra Lifers across the US and Canada has its own set of holiday traditions and happenings. Those events reflect the deeply personal stories that play out in the halls and rooms of those Children's Miracle Network Hospitals every day. In the spirit of the season, we wanted to share a handful of our favorite stories from hospitals located all over North America! SickKids’ Milk & Cookies Everyone loves to kick back during the holidays with some cookies and milk to wash them down! In recognition of this, SickKids launched a fundraising initiative to partner with bakers and cookie manufacturers to do some good with all of the sweet things being sold. Their partners include the likes of Walmart, Toppers, Girl Gang Goodies, General Mills, and more! One of their biggest sponsors is Oreo. The company pledged to donate at least $500,000 CAD to SickKids - all fueled by the sales of cookies sold during the holiday season. Check out their full list of sponsors to find some goodies that might also spread a little bit of cheer at SickKids! Ignite Hope at Phoenix Children’s Hospital In 2011, a young girl named Katie found herself diagnosed with an aggressive and rare form of cancer. The 15-year-old's illness was so rare that it only affects five in one million kids. During her fight at Phoenix Children's Hospital, Katie's friends and church group gathered at the hospital to hold a vigil by candlelight. The gathering and its shining lights burned in the darkness and giving all of the kids at Phoenix Children's along with Katie the gift of hope during the holidays. This has now become a growing and yearly tradition, called Ignite Hope, carrying on the legacy of hope that Katie left for those she loved after she passed away in 2013. The event has also taken on a fundraising aspect with the Hope Fund, which raises money to help fund over 60 programs at Phoenix Children's Hospital. This helps kids to feel more at home while at the hospital via animal-assisted therapy, pastoral care, music therapy, and child life programs. This year, over 3,000 people came together across two different events on December 14th and managed to raise $453,000 USD, a new record for Ignite Hope! This was helped by sponsors like Pizza Hut, 1Wish, 12 News, iHeart Media, and more. Christmas Tree Farm at Children’s of Alabama Mark Miller has been bringing Christmas to Children's of Alabama in Birmingham. This year, he brought over 340 trees donated by his colleagues across 30 different stores to the hospital, allowing kids to pick out their own trees to decorate and feel a bit of the holiday spirit while they are away from their homes and families during this difficult time of the year. The event came completely magical with fake snow and an appearance by Santa Claus himself! Miller was inspired to lead this Christmas tree farm to honor the memory of his daughter, Mary Beth, who passed away in 2013 due to complications with her heart. It hurt him to think of kids who might be alone in the hospital, away from their family's holiday traditions, so he started the Christmas tree farm. Kids who weren't well enough to make it down to the event had trees brought to them. It's a stellar tradition that helps kids feel a little bit less alone and isolated in the hospital during the holidays. The World's Largest Lego Menorah for El Paso Children’s Hospital There's something big happening in El Paso, Texas. Earlier this month, the Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso gathered to celebrate Hanukkah a bit early by bringing numerous families in the community together for an impressive project. Together, the community constructed a 10ft tall menorah out of 70,000 Lego pieces. The size of the menorah makes it unique as the world's largest menorah constructed out of Lego pieces. The menorah project was more than just for fun, however. The project is one of a number of interfaith Lego building projects that will be happening during the holidays. The event organizers used a building project to teach middle schoolers about wind power with windmill construction sessions. On top of that, the Jewish Federation went to Vino Nuevo Church where they worked with members of other faiths to build the old city of Jerusalem, including the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Wailing Wall, as well as many other historical landmarks. These events regularly draw hundreds of participants and viewers. The draw opens them up to some wonderful opportunities to do good in the El Paso community. For example, the proceeds raised from the construction of the menorah went toward supporting the El Paso Children's Hospital. We wish you all a merry Christmas, a happy Hanukkah, a stellar Solstice, and a bright Kwanzaa. In short, may you all have a festive holiday season! 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! View full article

  3. Tomorrow marks the beginning of Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX) weekend. This will be the fifth year the show has been put on and Extra Life is happy to be a part of the event. You will be able to see us from our traditional booth presence on the show floor as well as during various stretches of time on the EGLX main stage. The weekend will be highlighting a number of streamers and special guests from both the game industry and SickKids, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital in Toronto. EGLX 2019 takes place from October 18-20 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto. The event brings gamers from across Canada together to celebrate gaming. There are both casual and competitive tournaments, live shows, free play areas for casual, communal gaming, unique convention storefronts, as well as recently released and upcoming games from indie studios and AAA publishers. The list of confirmed guests includes the likes of Kinda Funny Games' Greg, Nick, and Andy, the creators of Death Battle, the team behind Game Attack, and Kris Wilson of Cyanide & Happiness. Extra Life will be appearing on the main stage throughout the event during 10 minute intervals that EGLX has been gracious enough to provide for us. We'll be talking about Extra Life's wider mission to help kids in Canada and the United States while also getting into more specifics about Toronto's own SickKids hospital. Keep your eyes peeled for a lengthier appearance on Sunday where Extra Life will be taking the stage for a full half-hour along with a Champion Child from SickKids. If you will be at the event in person, be sure to stop by and say hello at booth 311. We will have our own free play stations, host a rotation of special guests for attendees to interact and play with, and be giving away prizes sponsored by Arozzi Gaming Chairs, Dell, and more! The booth will be staffed by employees from SickKids, Extra Lifers, and maybe even one of the kids who has been helped by Extra Life donations. SickKids, also known as The Hospital for Sick Children, is one of the most research-oriented hospitals in Canada. It offers cutting-edge care, both specialized and general, for kids in the Toronto area and beyond. Their goal is to keep pushing the boundaries of care to make sure that every child receives comprehensive, safe, and effective care. To learn more or participate in raising money for SickKids through Extra Life, you can head over to: SKExtraLife.com.
