Hey everyone,
I did not see a topic about this already, and I thought it might be cool to see who here has heard of or participated in Extra Life.

I don't want this to sound like a sales pitch, but I do want to give some information for people who have never heard of it. Extra Life is a program run by Children's Miracle Network. Gamers (video, board, card, you name it) register on the Extra Life website (http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?) to support a Children's Miracle Network hospital and are given a fundraising page. The next part is easy. Just play games and let your friends, family, co-workers, etc. know where to go to donate to the hospital you chose to support. All proceeds go to the hospital you selected, and all donations are tax deductible.

I know a lot of people are probably familiar with other similar events like marathons for Child's Play or the seasonal "Games Done Quick" marathons. Twitch is a big partner for Extra Life, and every year on the annual game day, Twitch highlights Extra Life streamers on the main page to help support the charity. Extra Life has been supported by a few Humble Bundles as well, so it is good to see recognition starting to grow.

Has anyone participated before or plan on participating this year? Curious to see if other charity gamers are hanging around Crunchyroll. People who register can actually join teams too, so it might be cool to get a Crunchyroll team together for people not already in a team.
