As you probably know, last weekend a bunch of us raiders got together to play games for Extra Life, a charity videogame marathon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Together we raised. . . drumroll please. . . $2,809!Along with $2,039 in direct donations through our Extra Life team page, the Custom Tomb Raider Xbox 360 Bundle donated by our wonderful benefactors at Crystal Dynamics sold on eBay for $770! Congratulations and thanks to the winning bidder, Jay from Hawaii. Jay, you're a gentleman and an angel, as well as a hardcore fan. :D
I'd also like to thank everyone on our team—Nora, Hunter, Phill, Laura, Sinead, Bill, Scott, Colin, Amanda, Daryl, Nick and David—as well as the other gamers who played on our Extra Life livestream—Mark, Nath, Luka, Liam, and my wingman (wingwoman?), Queen Crispy—and of course everyone who tuned in, helped spread the word, and donated generously. I love you all!
If you missed the event itself, it's not too late to show your support. Extra Life's organizers are hoping to top the $4 MILLION mark over the next few days. So if you can spare even a few dollars, your help would be much appreciated. For more info about the event, visit Extra-Life.org. To donate, click the banner above.
If you'd like to join the team and play with us next year, just send me an email or tweet (@stellalune) and I'll add you to the roster. I'll be contacting everyone next September to plan for Extra Life 2014.
Thank you for your support! Tomb Raider fans are the best!
