Hey all, I am currently on an ELOA due to work but I wanted to bring to your attention a charitable organization that runs an event every year I take place in.
Extra life runs a campaign each year for local children's hospitals. Once apon a time, on the first Saturday of November we use to get donners, and for every hour streamed the donner would donate X amount in an attempt to play for 24 hours strait. sadly there were several deaths of people that pushed themselves to far. Still the tradition holds, and Nov 2nd the next Extra life fundraiser will take place. Now, I normally compete on another groups team but they have yet to set one up this year so I have decided to create one of my own.
What you should know
- If you create a group whatever money is donated to you goes to YOUR local children's hospital, regardless of what team you're on
-Nov 2nd is when the even takes place, and when most of us attempt to game/stream for 24 hours, but its not required to raise money for your perspective charities.
-you are not required to game for 24 hrs straight, its just something a lot of vets do to help raise additional money
-If you want to help you're not required to game or stream at all, you can simply donate a dollar of even 50 cents, and the person you donate will have the amount added to their local hospitals account, ask your local nurse, every bit helps.
-last year after personally raising money I was invited to an extra life regional tournament at Disney, while at the tournament, where I paid $50 for a 4 nights stay and two days passes to the park to Disney, it was great to see that 16k was raised just for my local hospital.
