This October, do something you love while helping those who need a little power boost, while adding to the over two million dollars that has been raised over the last four years. Join thousands of gamers as they participate in the 24 hour gaming marathon Extra Life – an annual fundraising event held in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. Gamers rally friends and family members to sponsor their play. The funds they raise go to help save and improve the lives of kids at the CMN Hospital in their community.
We here at Village Gamer would like to encourage you to get your schools, associations, groups, teams and if applicable, your workmates involved. The more gameplay there is going on, the more funds can be raised to help our sick children. There is a large selection of downloadable promotional materials for you to use to promote your fundraising event as well, including posters, videos and audio files.
Here are the pertinent details you will need for this mission:
When: October 20, 2012 @ 8am (Or choose a date that works for your schedule)
Where: Anywhere you like to game (Most people play from home!)
Game/Platform: Play any games on any platforms you want, including mobile devices.
How It Works: Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor your efforts. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift. Then, have a seat and play games on October 20th.
Who It Benefits: Gamers select the children’s hospital they want to play for during registration. In the US and Canada there are more than 170 CMN Hospitals to choose from. Players may also choose to play for hospitals in the UK and Australia.
As always you can register for Extra Life absolutely free, however, it is hoped that you will consider the $15.00 Platinum option, which makes you eligible to receive lots of goodies and prizes throughout the campaign, including the official 2012 Extra Life T-shirt when you hit $200 in funds raised.
