2017 Extra Life Charity Event

Hi Everyone! This is a quick break from your regularly scheduled Escape Room content to bring you an announcement about Extra Life 2017.

Every year, I run a charity drive through Extra Life in order to raise money for the Duke Children’s Hospital, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital that helps care for sick kids, many from families who couldn’t otherwise afford the critical care they need. Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for sick and injured kids. This is our fifth year running the drive, and are looking to make this year the best one yet, but we need your help to do so! If you’ve enjoyed my site or just want to help kids in need, please consider making a donation, even as little as $5 helps a lot! 100% of your tax deductible donation stays local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. If you’d like to help out, just click the donate link to the right of the screen here! That would be amazingly cool of you!

Also, we have a tabletop RPG convention that we run in conjuction with our drive, Extra Life 4: A Fistful of Cheat Tokens runs annually at The Gamer’s Armory in Cary, North Carolina and features a plethora of RPG gaming to enjoy over the weekend of Nov. 4th and 5th. Sign ups for Raleigh Tabletop Roleplayers’ games are here and here. We also features tables for Dungeons and Dragons Adventurer’s League and Pathfinder/Starfinder Society. Not sure what these games are? No problem! The vast majority of tables are open to newcomers unless otherwise stated. Tables will be $5 or $15 for the weekend, and all proceeds for Convention play will go towards supporting the kids at Duke Children’s Hospital as part of the Extra Life donation drive. Donations above and beyond the registration cost are always appreciated! If you’re in the area, I hope you can attend!

Whether you are attending Extra Life 4 or just want to donate, I appreciate all the help you can give! If you have any questions about the drive, just let me know using the Contact form!

Thanks in advance!
