The Geek Spot 24-Hour Extra Life Marathon Is On!

Everything is not quiet on the Southern Front. I'm currently running my marathon for Extra Life! This is my 4th year, and our team is trying their best to get everyone involved.

Yesterday it was all about Mass Effect: Andromeda and some party games. Gotta love that Jack Box. Today it's Final Fantasy 14.

Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million for local CMN Hospitals. We raise funds to help out sick kids and it's a lot of fun to do it.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through the charity’s Miracle Balloon icon. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

What I appreciate the most about Extra Life is that every penny of donations goes direct to Charity. Extra Life doesn't keep any of it. They are not like other middle men/groups.

This year, we really need your help. I'm only halfway to my $250 goal, and we're $700 down from our group $1k goal. Every year it becomes more challenging to get people to donate. We know most of you like to do it on Extra Life day and support your favorite big-name streamers and developers who can give away cool prizes. While it's great to see any donations, it does make it a challenge for the average "Joe's" to make a difference. We're happy being able to provide a few dollars in donations! So help us help sick kids and donate!
