Nov. 2 marks the start of the Extra Life charity drive, a gaming event that benefits the Children's Miracle Network. Participants in this event engage in a 25-hour gaming marathon, playing whatever games they want in an effort to raise money for the charity. For the first time, WorthPlaying will be joining the event, which is a worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers. WP staff members Adam Pavlacka and Tony Mitera will both be participating, each with his own approach to tackle the 25-hour gaming marathon.
Tony will play through and streaming some of his favorite PC games of 2013, with some older games thrown in for good measure. He is also letting donors dictate how and what he plays, whether it's choosing the games he plays or how he plays a particular game. More details can be found on his Extra Life page.
We at WorthPlaying ask that you consider donating to the team to help us reach our donation goals. The donations are tax-deductible, and all donations go directly to the Children's Miracle Network hospitals to help treat sick kids. To donate, visit either Adam or Tony's Extra Life member page and click on the "Support Me" button to make a donation.
About Childrens Miracle Network
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 children's hospitals across North America, which, in turn, use the money where it's needed the most. When a donation is given, it stays in the community, ensuring that every dollar is helping local kids. Since 1983, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $4 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
