Fundraising for The Alberta Childrens Hospital by Wayne Giles

Club member Wayne has asked me to post this for him!


The charity he is raising funds for is using an event called Extra Life.

Quick explanation.
·         What is Extra Life?
o   Extra Life is a charity is started by gamers to support the Children’s Miracle Network.
o   Participants pledge to play games (video, board, pen and paper it doesn’t matter) for 24 hours, typically on the game day which this year is November 7th.
·         Does my donation go to my local hospital?
o   Your donation will go to whatever hospital that the participant is supporting.  In my case that is the Alberta Children’s Hospital here in Calgary.
·         How much of donation goes to the hospital?
o   Your entire donation goes to the supported hospital.  Yes Extra Life has staff however they are paid through industry sponsorships.  Your entire donation will go to the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Link to my donation page:
An important note is online donations are made in USD.  Extra Life notes the exchange rate on the day you donated, and then that is sent to the hospital after the event, so that the Canadian hospitals do not get hurt by fluctuating exchange rates.

 If you have any question feel free to ask by e-mailing me at LewsKinslayer0@gmail.com
Thank you, Wayne.
