My boyfriend, Andy, signed up to do Extra Life and we’re streaming his marathon on Twitch today. For those who don’t know, Extra Life is a charity that raises money for sick children by doing 24-hour gaming marathons. It’s a stellar way for gamers to promote safe gaming and raise money for childrens’ hospitals around the country. Andy is raising money for the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. Figured I’d share it on so people can check it out. He has a full schedule of games and I’ll be there to chime in with my thoughts since he’s streaming it on Twitch. As always, donations and support are welcome, and I encourage others to participate Extra Life.
Here’s the schedule and original post that Andy made on Facebook:
