Anyone who’s been around Twitch often might recognize the name Extra Life as one of the biggest gaming charities out there. Extra Life is an organization that raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. If you sign up to start a campaign you are entered in as a “player” in the organization and from there you can join a team of other players in an actual competition for raising the most money.
Extra Life is partnered with Twitch so any streamer can set up donations on their Twitch channel and even set up their very own incentives for donating. For instance, Wizards of the Coast has their very own D&D team full of people who stream D&D content on Twitch and is even offering products such as t-shirts to sell where all proceeds go to Extra Life. Another well known contributor to Extra Life is Stephen and Mallory Georg who have a Twitch channel and three youtube channels between the two of them which will be linked below. Every year on Twitch they reserve a day for an Extra Life stream in which they take the full collection of a gaming system and incentivize donations by letting their viewers bid on which game they will spend half an hour playing. If you want to be a part of something like that, you’re in luck! Their Extra Life stream will be this Saturday! On October 24th 2020 at noon EST, check out their Twitch channel for some charity fun. General rule is that they keep playing till they drop from sleep deprivation, so they’re in for the long haul!
Of course, if you have your own Twitch channel and would like to show support towards Extra Life yourself it’s more than encouraged! Or if you have some other ideas on how to start a good campaign for this charity, let them know and you can be on your way to doing something great for a lot of sick kids out there!
