Extra Life 2013 is just a couple hours from going live, and it’s already looking to make a huge splash this year! Originally starting in 2008, it’s quickly grown to become a huge supporter for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Last year alone, Extra Life raised over $2 million for hospitals around the U.S. This year is expected to surpass that, with lots of celebrities and internet sensations getting involved, including the likes of Rooster Teeth and Giant Bomb.
This year’s stream holds extra significance, as it will actually be a 25 hour stream thanks to Daylight Savings.
I will be playing for the University of Iowa Children's Hospital in Iowa City. If you’re interested in donating to the cause, you can support my team here:
I’m also live-streaming for most of the day, which you can view here:
I’ll be tweeting live throughout the event @TonyOrtale, feel free to tweet me suggestions on what you’d like to see played!
