For those just hearing about this now – Extra Life is an annual fundraising event where gamers sign up to collect donations from friends and family, pledging to spend a “day of play” marathoning video games in support of sick and injured kids. Since 2008, over 100,000 organizations and individuals have participated in the program, raising over $40 million in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the nation.
2018 marks Filament’s first year participating in Extra Life – but it certainly won’t be our last! Thanks to the generous support of our studio’s friends, family, and followers, we ended up raising a total of $1,495 in support of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. All donations raised through Extra Life go towards funding critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care – from the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for your support! 👏👏
