It's common knowledge that our world sort of sucks right now. With the world economy in trouble, the fact that my credit card debt is piling up, and the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, it's hard to find things that are amazing. One thing I know for sure, though, is that charity ROCKS and that it's time once again for Dtoid to participate in the yearly Extra Life marathon!
Extra Life is a charity event started by the fine guys at Sarcastic Gamer in 2008. Destructoid has been a part of these efforts -- last year, the marathon we ran raised over $6,000 in donations to benefit the local Children's Miracle Network in Oakland. We are currently on lock for this year's 24-hour marathon to begin on October 15th, 10:00am Pacific. Just like lastyear, we will have a full schedule of entertainment for you with prizes to give away, and all we ask is that you donate some money below!
If you want to ask for donation money yourself or hold your own marathon, you can make your own account on the Extra Life website and join our team. This way, all of the money you raise will benefit your hospital of choice and count towards our collective goal! Stay tuned for more information about this amazing 24-hour event, and let's get the donations flowing FOR THE CHILDREN!
