#ExtraLife2015 with the League of Extraordinary Rodents

Extra_Life

It’s time for Extra Life 2015!

This will be my second year playing for the Boston Children’s Hospital. Last year I was able to raise over $400 thanks to the kindness of both gamers and non-gamers alike, and this year I’m upping the ante a bit more by aiming for $500.

We’ve got a new team this year, the League of Extraordinary Rodents. We’ll be looking to blanket the entire 24 hours as a team, although I believe the members will be streaming in sequence and also at at the same time just so we can get a time-slot that can accommodate our real life schedules while also trying to fill in any holes to reach that 24 hour mark.

If you’re new to Extra Life, let me explain what it’s about:

Extra Life is a 24 hour marathon of gaming to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network. Gamers broadcast their gameplay across the Internet and accept donations through the Extra Life website, kind of like those 5K runs your neighbors are always hitting you up about (except there’s absolutely no running involved in our marathon!). If you don’t have an opportunity to catch a broadcast, don’t worry! You can still make a charitable donation to the gamer of your choice.

If you are interested in checking out the League’s participation, or would kindly consider a donation, you can find more information below.

Thank you!
