Extra Life 2016 at Microsoft Domain

November 9th, 2016
This past weekend hundreds of gamers united together for an amazing charity known as Extra Life. This charity is based on playing games during a 24 hour marathon to help raise money for kids in childrens hospitals. "Play games, heal kids" - Extra Life's motto. el-micro-02 I tried doing this charity twice before - This year we decided to help out a local gaming organization as they marathon-ed on November 5th for 24 hours at the Microsoft store located in the Domain/Austin, TX. The total amount raised during the Extra Life weekend was $6,653,220 overall! During the Microsoft event, they were able to raise around $2,990+ & currently still counting! It's amazing to see so many people getting involved with this charity - Such a good cause to help children get more chances and live a better life. It's very rewarding to be a part of a great cause and I'm extremely proud of every person I know who attempted/succeeded with their 24 hour marathon. Until next year, I look forward to looking into charities that are doing amazing things for communities.
