Extra Life 2023: Play Games, Heal Kids, Win Fabulous Prizes!

We're at it again! The Tomb Raider Community team, led by yours truly, will be streaming another weekend-long charity marathon to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Join us on Twitch Saturday, November 4, starting at 6 am Eastern (10 am GMT) for two full days of gaming. Last year, we raised over $10,000. We're hoping to exceed that in 2023. You can help make it happen!

Follow this link for our EXTRA LIFE MARATHON SCHEDULE for your local time zone.
This year, we have 30 team members, raising money for dozens of local children's hospitals. Some are offering special incentives for donors. I encourage you to check out their fundraising pages for details.
  • ArkRaiderMs (Golisano Children's Hospital, Syracuse) - Anyone who donates through Ark's fundraising page Saturday or Sunday has a chance at winning a brand new Tomb Raider Legends board game.
  • IzzyNoodles (Extra Life general fund) - Izzy has a variety of on-stream incentives linked to her Extra Life fundraising page, from novelty glasses and hot-sauce shots to choosing a game for a future stream.
  • Seibermaki (UC Davis Children's Hospital) - The Sacramento Extra Life Guild is giving away an amazing LEGO Rivendell set. Each $5 donation unlocks one chance to win. (Ends midnight PDT November 5.)
  • Stardust Legacy (Children's Hospital Los Angeles) - Jessie is offering various 'Art for Your Heart' incentives again this year. $25 unlocks a full-color drawing of your chosen character/OC, $50 a fully rendered scene of one to two characters with background. Or, you can choose a Plush Adoption Kit from World Wildlife Fund for a $75 donation.
  • Stellalune (San Jorge Children and Women's Hospital in San Juan, Puerto Rico) - Donate $5+ by December 1 for a chance to win a Wētā Workshop Mini Epics: Lara vs Raptor statuette.
  • Taryn Platt (Children's Hospital Colorado) - Taryn is offering a variety of art incentives, including Tomb Raider and Tombstone stickers, as well as original artwork of favorite characters, people, and pets. One of her prints is also a prize in the team raffle (below).
  • Unchart3dRaider (Riley Children's Health, Indianapolis) - Donate $100 for a one-on-one Discord chat with Earl Baylon (Jonah Maiava in the Tomb Raider games and upcoming anime), Raidercast's Chris Carpineti, or Tomb Raider streamer/YouTuber Steve of Warr. Sessions are limited, so first come, first served.

Other team members may announce giveaways and other incentives on stream, so be sure to tune in throughout the weekend.

The TOMB RAIDER COMMUNITY EXTRA LIFE RAFFLE runs through November 30. We're giving away 26 fantastic prizes, including a Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris Exclusive Edition statue by Gaming Heads. No donation is necessary to enter, but Extra Life donors unlock bonus raffle entries.

If you've already donated and would like to claim extra raffle entries, contact me and I'll make sure that happens.

We understand not everyone can donate. We'd be thrilled if you could help spread the word, stop by the streams, and cheer us on. Your support means everything!

The team would like to thank the Tomb Raider developers, Crystal Dynamics, and long-time friend Nicolas Fructuoso for supporting our efforts and donating prizes for the raffle. Special thanks to Earl, Chris, and Steve for generously donating their time, and to our teammates Taryn Platt and Lilly Jericho, who also donated prizes this year.
