25 Hour Game-a-thon for Children’s Hospital

Can gaming help those in need? The answer is a resounding YES! Each year the Extra Life organization puts on a game-a-thon where gamers, like you and me, play games for 24 hours to raise money for their local children’s hospital. All of the proceeds from the event go directly to the designated hospital.

The funds are used to provide medical care for kids whose families otherwise could not afford the help.

Listen to this episode to learn more about this great cause, discover some cool new games, and maybe you will be empowered to participate next year!
