Extra Life 2016 Charity Event


Its that time of year once again where gamers from all around the world come together as one big community with a different kind of high score on their minds. The high score on everyone’s minds is how high a donation can we give to the Children’s Miracle Network. Why’s that I hear you ask, well, the Children’s Miracle Network helps raise money so that kids can fight illness including cancer. We all know how devastating cancer can be, I’m sure many of us have had the unfortunate experience of having a relative, friend or partner suffer from this disease and its something that unfortunately takes money to battle as well as to research. This is where us as a community of gamers can come in for the win.

JoypadAndMe are happy to take part in the gaming/charity event called Extra Life. On the 4th and 5th November 2015, gamers will get together both physically and digitally to play video games, board games, card games……..you get the idea, for 24 hours with the intention of getting sponsored to do so. All the money goes to the Children’s Miracle Network so we can’t think of a better excuse to play games for a whole day and night and at the same time raise as much money as possible.

So go to your friends, your family, your work colleagues, school friends….heck, random people in the street if you want and ask them to donate what they can to this amazing cause. Any amount will mean something.

Donate what you can and feel like a Hero.
