Extra Life -- Looking for Heroes
Every year in November, thousands of gamers come together with one goal in mind: raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network! This year has been an especially tough one for everyone, but the members of the PMS Clan aren’t backing down and we’re participating once again in Extra Life 2020!
Not sure what Extra Life is? Extra Life began in 2008, bringing together gamers who would raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It focuses on the children who are sick or injured and oftentimes don’t have the funds to pay for their hospital stays and treatments, but also brings awareness to illnesses that are often not discussed.
“Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $70 million USD for sick and injured kids. Right now, children's hospitals need YOUR support. Be a hero.”
The PMS Clan is aiding once more in raising funds for those in need. And to help reach our goals, we’re doing a series of Twitch streams from November 6th to November 8th. While our Twitch streams are still a few weeks away, it’s not too early to be a hero. Here’s a list of ways how you can help now:
As part of our Extra Life Team, you can select your own Children’s Miracle Network Hospital near and dear to you. Perhaps you have your own personal account of a hospital helping out you, family, or friends. Or maybe you’re just looking to help out wherever you can. Once you join the PMS Clan team, you’re helping us reach our overall total goals. But wait, there’s more. Any funds you help raise puts you into the running of earning yourself some cool swag! Stay tuned for more details to come.
While the actual Extra Life day event is on November 7th where folks stream for 24 hours straight, we’re breaking it up and streaming on several different days. To help fill all that time, we’re currently looking for people interested in streaming or playing with our PMS Clan Stream Team to tell your story. You can sign up here and let us know a little bit more about you and how we can help bring awareness to your story.
If you’re not a streamer yourself or don’t have the time to game for 24 hours, you can donate to any of our team members, including our PMS Clan donation page where you can also earn entries to win prizes while supporting a great cause. Every penny counts, so nothing too small is overlooked.
Spread the message
While we would love to have everyone in our community helping us stream or donate, getting the message out there is also just as important! Tweet on Twitter our team page, share our streams to your Facebook, post our images and clips to Instagram! Our goal is to spread awareness of the causes we’re streaming for, and every little bit helps. You can find our social pages here on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitch. And here’s our PMS Clan Extra Life Team Page if you’ve missed it.
As the stream date draws near, we’ll have more ways on how you can help with Extra Life, but also what prizes you can earn just by being an awesome, generous you!
