What is Extra Life?

Extra Life is a way for gamers to unite and raise money for an incredible cause – Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is a non-profit organization that raises money to aid in the treatment of sick and injured kids who, along with their families, are going through seemingly impossible battles. The money raised by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals goes to 170 hospitals across the U.S. and Canada, and may be used for anything from research funding to helping supplement the cost of treatment for children under their care. Wherever you are in the world, you can participate in Extra Life. Gamers raise money leading up to and during a 24-hour gaming marathon, this year taking place over the weekend of November 2nd - but players can choose their own start time. They can also choose exactly what and how they play over the course of the event.

Over the past 10 years, over $50 million has been raised through Extra Life, including $8.8 million last year alone. Check out the Extra Life project and the Children's Miracle Network for more details.

We want to know whether the TrueAchievements community would want to get involved as a group this year, with an Event hub and easy access to each player's donation page and live stream on Twitch or Mixer. The news team are looking to get directly involved with our own streams too! Whether you'd watch or directly participate, we'd love to hear from you in the poll and the comments!
