Extra Life 2014

Let’s Help the Kids!

It’s that time of year again and the Extra Life Marathon Campaign is in full swing.  An annual marathon, Extra Life looks to raise awareness and funds for the sick kids living and being taken care of at the many Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America.  Sean is participating in the event, on October 25th, for the 5th year and is looking for your help to raise $1000 specifically for Hamilton McMaster Children’s Hospital, the hospital in his home town.

Extra Life is a 24 hour gaming marathon in which gamers give of their time and money and spend and entire 24 hours playing games to raise funds for the hospitals.  Last year, Extra Life raised over $4 million dollars and we are aiming to beat that again.  Click the link below to sponsor Sean’s efforts and help him realize his goal of $1000.  All your donations, all 100% of them, go directly to the hospital.  There are no administration fees kept by anyone in the Extra Life campaign.  This is for the kids, and only for the kids.  Any little bit can help.

As an added bonus, if you donate, we have a list of games that Sean will be giving away.  There are plenty to choose from so there is a good chance everyone will get something.  Here is the list of what we have to give away (this list will change as the weeks progress towards October 25th):

  • (3x) Forza 5 [Xbox One]
  • (6x) Watch Dogs [Steam]
  • (5x) South Park: The Stick of Truth [Steam]
  • (2x) Fibbage [PS3]
  • (2x) Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Season 2, Episode 5 [PS3]
  • (2x) Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us: Episode 5 [Xbox 360]
