Get Ready For Our 25-Hour Extra Life Streaming Extravaganza!

Autumn is a special time for the gaming community, where an event known as Extra Life brings together gamers everywhere to raise money for children’s hospitals. This year Game Informer will be live streaming dozens of fun games for 25 hours from 8am to 8am CT November 5th-6th on our Twitch and Youtube channels to raise money for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare.

Last year our incredible community raised over $38,000, setting a new record for all of us and propelling us to push even further. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved (even those editors tortured by ghost peppers) and we can’t wait to do it again. 

We have a mountain of gaming items to auction off, including limited edition systems, figurines, controllers, and full games. Seriously, we have a lot of games to give away. More than all other years combined. We’re also going to be playing some really great games and throwing in shocking surprises and revelations along the way. If you’d like to help raise some money for the kids, you can join Team Game Informer right now and start asking for donations, and when the stream kicks off head to our donation page to be eligible for some awesome rewards.  So come hang out with us on Nov. 5th and let’s do some good. For the kids!
