Gaming to Heal Kids

The first time I had ever heard about Extra Life was only about the gaming marathon aspect of it.  “That’s cool,” I thought, “but why are so many people wanting to take together for 24 straight hours?”  Even though playing SWTOR is one of the most fun things ever invented (yeah yeah I’m biased.  Because lightsabers and no Skywalkers), I didn’t know anything about the purpose behind the marathon.  Thanks to JT (@JT_Holonet) and Jessie (@UnholyAlliances) and their excellent podcast, The Passionately Casual Podcast (@PC_Podcast) I was able to hear about the Extra Life event because of Kash with Mog Nation (@MOGKash).

Extra Life is one of the most incredible events I have ever heard of because it unites gamers together to raise money to help fund LOCAL children’s hospitals. That’s right, it helps children that love around YOU because as a participant in in the event, you are able to declare which children’s hospital you would like to donate your pledges to support. Though I cannot participate in the event this year, I would like to spotlight the Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake Extra Life Team. Jessie, JT, and all those amazing people on the Harbringer have organized their own event to support the Extra Life marathon. So, if you have a character in the Harbringer, join up with Jessie and JT for in-game fun and prizes on November 7!!

But don’t take my word for it, check out this incredible video by Jessie to promote the event!!

The people in Unholy Alliance and Wookiee Mistake are an awesome group of people that all have amazingly huge hearts. And what better excuse is there to game than to help heal children? I mean really, this is a no-lose situation!!! Join Jessie and her crew for Datacron Runs, Operations Runs (I am sure @DarthPops and @IAmWillGriggs will be running their WOG Group runs as well), Leveling Events, and pretty much anything else you can possibly imagine going on in game.
