Extra Life 24 Hour Game A Thon for Charity

What's better than raising money for charity and doing something you love while doing it? Extra Life is an international 24 hour game a thon that raises money for Children's Miracle Network hospitals on sat October 16.You can play any type of game ie; computer, video, internet, board gaming, rpg, even games played on your cell phone count. The money that is raised in Indianapolis will go towards Riley's Children's Hospital. If you want to get involved go to https://www.hospitals...
There you can sign up to participate. Once you join and sign up, you will have a donation page where people can go to and sponsor you, and they can donate directly on the page, so you don't have to worry about collecting cash from people. I think the minimum set goal for people is $96.00 but you can change that and have your goal be higher if you want. People will sponsor you for a dollar an hour for every hour you game or $24.00 if you game the full 24 hours. You don't even have to do it all at once. It starts at 8am and goes til Sunday 8 am. Andrew at the Arsenal said he will keep the store open til 8m Sunday, but if you can do your first 4 hours at home that would be nice so that the Arsenal doesn't have to be open 24 hours. We are planning to start at noon. If you want to get involved and participate and get your own sponsors so more money can be raised, that would be great, or if you just want to come and play with those who are participating to keep us company, that would be fine too. Come get involved and make a difference in our community doing something you love!! I will post something on the discussion board where participants can share their donation page links.

    Great time - now feeling a little jet-lagged, though.

    If you join and participate there is a section where you can find a team, so participants can be a team. I created a team called Big Bang Gamerz. Just look it up when you see the find a team section and join it!
