Ever wonder how your video game habit can make a difference to sick children? For the first time ever, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is hosting EXTRA LIFE, a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money to help sick and injured kids. It’s coming up soon – October 16, 2010. Here’s how it works:
1. First you need to Sign Up. 2. Then e-mail friends, family, co-workers and fellow gamers and ask them to sponsor you. Every $1 you raise equals one hour that you can play. Sign eight people up to sponsor you for just $1 per hour, and you will receive a free, limited edition Extra Life T-shirt. 3. On Saturday, October 16, play games, heal kids and have fun!
You can play any game on any gaming system (Wii, XBOX, PS3, etc.), even your smart phone or computer. What’s important is that you ask others to support you in your effort to heal kids. Asking for just $1 for every hour you play video games can add up quickly and can mean all the difference to the sick and injured kids at CHLA.
CHLA invites you to share your experience with them. Looking forward to playing Halo: Reach? Maybe you just love Tiger Woods Golf on Wii or can’t get enough of World of Warcraft. Tell them about games you love, and how much money you’ve raised. Best of all, tell them about why you support Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. They want to hear from you! Submit your comments at:
