It's November 2nd, and that means the Extra Life marathon is upon us!
A 25-hour fundraising effort for Children's Miracle Network hospitals, Extra Life is the video game community's way of giving back to kids in need. This year, WorthPlaying is participating in the fundraising, with two members committing to game for 25 hours straight.
All of the funds raised by WorthPlaying for Extra Life are 100% tax deductible and are earmarked for Children's Hospital Oakland, which is local to WorthPlaying and supports children in need throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
You can do your part by donating to either one of our team members. All donations go directly to Extra Life via a secure credit card (or Paypal) payment system.
Adam will be supporting the console gaming cause, playing on systems both new and old. If you're a console gamer, you can donate directly on Adam's Extra Life page.
Tony is our resident PC guru, so he'll be supporting the PC gaming cause. If you're a PC gamer, you can donate directly on Tony's Extra Life page.
EVERYONE WHO DONATES IS ELIGIBLE TO WIN FREE GAMES.
Whether you donate to Adam or Tony, you have a chance to randomly win free games. Winners will be contacted after the event, so if you haven't donated, there is still time to get your name on the list.
During the event, you can watch Adam play live at http://twitch.tv/worthplaying. You will be able to tweet at him on the official WorthPlaying Twitter feed. Tony will be playing live at http://twitch.tv/ouberlord. You will be able to tweet at him on his personal Twitter feed.
