Support Team Tomb Raider & Extra Life!

UPDATE: Team Tomb Raider raised an amazing $2,629 for the Children’s Miracle Network through their donations page and Ebay auction! A massive thanks to Stella, “Queen Crispy”, Mark, Sinead and all the other team members for their hard work over the weekend and for the hours of entertainment they provided via their livestream. Let’s do even better next year. For the kids! (4th November 2013)

Stella and the rest of the Team Tomb Raider community will be taking part in this year’s Extra Life video game marathon and they need your help to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals of their choice (United States and Canada only) or for one of the CMN’s international funds.

Last year, the team successfully raised over $1,000 and this time they’re aiming for the $2,000 mark. The 24-hour marathon takes place on the weekend of 2nd November 2013 and you can help out by joining the team, donating money to any of the team members, and/or spreading the word via social media or on your own blog or website. All donations are tax-deductible and all the proceeds will go directly to helping children and their families.

Please visit Stella’s blog or the official Extra Life website for more information about this worthy cause. Let’s do it for the kids!

EDIT: Tomb Raider fans living in the United States, Canada and Mexico are also welcome to take part in Team Tomb Raider’s auction. Team Tomb Raider and Crystal Dynamics are offering fans the chance to bid for a custom Tomb Raider Xbox 360 slim console and a North American Tomb Raider collector’s edition package. The auction closes on the evening of 2nd November 2013 and all proceeds will go towards the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

EDIT: “Queen Crispy”, one of the members of Team Tomb Raider, has created the above video to promote the team’s livestream. Team Tomb Raider will be using it to track their progress as well as give away prizes to fans and supporters so be sure to bookmark it!

    Gee whiz. When I was a lad, we did this sort of thing with swimming or running. The charity marathons have run along with the times and technology. ;-)


    • I remember having to go from door to door asking for people to sponsor me for running (which I detested) or buy raffle tickets. If only I was able to play video games for charity back when I was a teenager. I’d have easily done a 24-hour marathon then.. :-D

    Thanks so much for helping to spread the word!

    I’ve never been in a swimming or running event (I’ll admit I’m not very athletic), but I have done walk-a-thons, a dance marathon, and all kinds of other charity things. I have to say the video game marathon is by far the most fun, though I may have a different take on it by the wee hours of Sunday the 3rd. ;)


    • I’m sure you’ll manage. ;-) I’d join you guys but my mum will be visiting me for the next couple of weeks and that will be my last weekend with her till Christmas.

      That said, I’ll be sure to help out in my own little way. ;-)

        You’ve already helped so much. I really appreciate it. I hope you have a great time with your mother. :D


        • We will do. We have a short trip to Belgium planned for one of the weekends that she’ll be here. She’s never been there and since it’s only a 2-3 hour drive from the Netherlands, it’d be silly not to go. :-)

          There’ll be fewer new blog posts over the course of the next few weeks but there will be some. I’ve already got 2 new posts written and scheduled for publication and will be working on a 3rd one tomorrow. ^_^
