Twenty-four hours of games, you say?!? You heard it right! This weekend, The Nerd Stash will be joining thousands of others, within the gaming community, for a 24-hour gaming live stream event in support of Extra Life. We’re calling out to all folks with super insomniac powers to join us today, November 6th, as we’ll be spending an entire 24 hours playing video games to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. No Extra Life effort is complete without the assistance of good friends and great company.
What is Extra Life?
Extra Life began in 2008 as a way of honoring a young lady named Victoria Enmon. Tori’s battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia inspired the Sarcastic Gamer Community in a way that is difficult to describe. Members sent in video games and bought gifts to keep Tori’s spirits up despite numerous hospital stays and three bouts with the deadly disease. After Tori lost her battle, Extra Life decided to use gaming as a way to get donations for the hospital network that cared for Tori, Children’s Miracle Network, all over the country. Now, there are thousands of gamers raising money for children.
