Extra Life 2016
This year, I’ll will be joining Team Tomb Raider Community once more to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and their international health programs by taking part in the largest charity gaming event in the world, Extra Life!
Last year, we helped raise over $4,000 and this year, we hope to beat our own best score. My own personal target this year is $500 and I’m going to need *your* help to achieve this.
Total raised to date: $325.
- November 5 - 7, 2016 - Extra Life weekend! Held a 3-hour stream on the 6th, which was also hosted on the team channel, and managed to push fundraising total up to $325. A huge thanks to Robin H, Darryl B, Stellalune, John T, and Nathan H for their generous donations. And another huge thanks to all those who stopped by to watch the stream!

All donations (no matter how small) are welcome and all proceeds will go straight towards helping sick children and their families in their hour of need. And if you’re not able to make a donation, you can still help out by spreading the word about our fundraising efforts via social media or by simply tuning in to our charity live streams later this year!🙂
