This will be the third year that my husband and I participated in a charity event called Extra Life. Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon that raises money for children’s hospitals that are part of the Children’s Miracle Network. We ask people to pledge money and then we game for 24 straight hours – board games, video games, table top games, computer games, even phone apps!
We also take spot donations to help us get the edge in certain games against other players. We’ve been helping to spread the word and raise money ever since Extra Life started; this charity has raised millions of dollars and has also helped our local Children’s Hospital in Boston.
