With plenty of time left in the event, Extra Life 2013 has already raised over $3.4 million and counting. A donation received at 8:20 PM CST on Nov 2, 2013 officially pushed the total just past the $3 million mark, and funds have continued to pour in since then. Not only does this surpass last year’s total, but it’s also a promising tale for what can be expected by the end of the fundraising event.
This is made even more impressive by the fact that the Extra Life website was taken down three times during the event by a DDoS attack. During the downtime, all traffic to the site was halted which meant no donations could be made. It’s still unclear who is responsible for the attack, but it does raise the question of how much money they’re responsible for preventing from being donated.
The good news is the site is back up and running, and there’s still plenty of time to continue supporting your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
