Extra Life Marathon and Raffle Update

As most of you heard, the Extra Life site was hacked yesterday, preventing contributors from donating, players from receiving alerts, etc. It seems to be working now for most people. If you wanted to donate but still can't load extra-life.org, try clearing your browser cache and cookies. If that doesn't work, please be assured that Extra Life accepts donations until the end of the year, so please don't give up!

It's also possible to donate offline with a check or money order made out to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. You'll need to send it to me, and I will forward it to the charity. Just contact me and we'll work out the details.

In spite of all that, the team managed to beat our initial $3,000 goal. We're now at $3,602 and have received a challenge from our great friend and supporter, Vagabondo5591: If we can reach $3,900 by the end of today, he will top it up to $4,000. If we get to $4,900, he'll make it an even $5,000, and so on. So anything you can do to help would be most appreciated. If you donate through my Extra Life page, your contribution goes directly to San Jorge Women & Children's Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The team's annual raffle is also live. We're giving away a Gaming Heads Tomb Raider III Lara Croft statue, some gorgeous artwork by our teammate, Taryn, and lots of other Tomb Raider goodies. Anyone can enter, but Extra Life donors receive bonus raffle entries. Check out the Extra Life Raffle page for details.

Thank you so much for your support!

Extra Life Charity Marathon This Weekend!

It's that time again! This weekend, November 2-3, the Tomb Raider Community Team will be playing our 8th annual Extra Life charity marathon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. I am once again gaming in support of San Jorge Women & Children's Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico. If you'd like to make a donation beforehand, just click the 'Donate' link at right or visit my Extra Life page. Contributions are tax deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids in Puerto Rico.

Even if you are unable to donate, I hope you'll check out the Team's Marathon Schedule, stop by our Twitch channels this weekend, and enter our prize raffle, which will launch soon and run through November. And by all means, please spread the word.

Thank you so much for your support!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider Extra Life Livestream

If all goes according to plan, I plan to launch my Extra Life 2019 fundraising efforts by streaming Shadow of the Tomb Raider on my Twitch channel Sunday, September 1, at about 10 a.m. EDT. (Click here for your local time.) I hope you'll stop in and say hello.

Once again I'll be playing for San Jorge Children and Women's Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The island is still rebuilding after the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria in 2017 and bracing for another hurricane season. With disaster relief slow to arrive, these kids need help to heal, grow, and thrive! I'll be sharing my donation link during the stream, but if you can't make it and would like to donate and help me reach my goal, please check out my Extra Life page.
