WHAT IS EXTRA LIFE?

Extra Life is an annual 24-hour video game marathon that raises money to help kids at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

On Saturday, October 15th participants begin active play at 8:00 am in their own loacal timezone. Players can participate by playing anything from hardcore shooters, social networking games, or even table top games. Extra Life doesn't specify. If a gamer can't complete the full 24 marathon or must play on a alternative date, that's OK. The best part is you can participate from the confort of your own couch.

HOW DOES YOUR DONATIONS HELP?

All funds raised stay in your community to ensure that every dollar can be used to help local kids. Donations are be used by Children's Miracle Network hospitals to support research and training, purchase needed equipment and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of sick children.

EASY AS 1-2-3

  1. Sign up online at http://extra-life.org
  2. Ask friends and family to sponsor you for $1 per hour
  3. Play games for 24 hours on October 15th 2011

GamerIndepth has a representative participating. LINK I think that if you have a club in PSHome you should try to have at least one member particiipate and if you cant participated then you should at least support someone who is. Its for a great cause.

I would join the team but for whatever reason the site wont let you join a team after you make an account, you have to do it while setting up the account.

My page is found here: http://tinyurl.com/Jim777Chairty feel free to add it to the OP

Since the Extra Life site is not connected to playstation.com, feel free to just make another one. Or you can move forward with building your own Home team. The more the merrier!

I don't budlist-add on forums, and blank PSN requests get ignored!

http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/3402531 <- Login/MissingItems issues, over 6 month old problem still never fixed! 3-4 months worth of items still unreturned as of current.

You dont need a sponser, the site handles the donations all you do is plug away then on the day of the event game all day

Me and a few members of my organization (AITP) at my college will be partaking in this as well . Should be pleanty of fun to take part of and will go for a great cause. Im liking that sony is starting to take part in more charity events. I might try and spread the word a bit around home about this. Seeing how not all users view the forums.
