Extra Life is a great gaming charity event that was started by Sarcastic Gamer as a way to encourage video gamers to have fun and raise money for kids who face battles with medical problems in hospitals around the world.

Gamers pick their hospital, pledge to play games for 24 hours, and try to get sponsors to donate as little as $1 per hour.  It's all done electronically via the Children's Miracle Network and 100% of every dollar donated makes it to the hospitals and the kids.  

In 2010, the folks at Game Salute started encouraging any kind of gamer to get involved.  Board games, card games, RPG's, whatever.  And we at the D6 Generation thought ... Brilliant!  We're in.  So we're back this year to do it again!

If you'd like to help, there are a couple of options.

Option 1: Sponsor to your favorite D6G Personality

  Craig's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

  Russ's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here

Option 2: Participate yourself!  

  Come on, you're a gamer!! Why not sign up, get a pledge or two, and have a GREAT excuse to game all day!
