We at The Palace of Wisdom are very proud to announce that our little site will be taking part in Extra Life 2013.
For those who may not have heard of Extra Life, this is a celebration of gaming culture which brings gamers together for the cause of raising money to help heal sick children. Originally created back in 2008 by Sarcastic Gamer‘s Doc, Extra Life started out as a sponsored 24 hour game marathon but since then people have chosen to alter it in their own way by spreading the shift out, creating monster events or even huge tournaments.
All money raised goes to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals who have over 170 active hospitals across the US and Canada, including Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC, Boston Children’s Hospital in Boston and SickKids – Hospital in Toronto Ontario Canada. These three hospital’s have funding set aside for children the world over (including the UK), to be transported for some of the best care available in the world.
Team TPoW will be made up of members of staff and community members who will all be banding together in the hopes of lasting a full 25 hours of video gaming in an epic marathon, now here’s where you come in. We need your help by asking you to head on over to the Team TPoW Extra Life page and donate whatever you can to help the kids. Want to go deeper? Then please by all means feel free to join our team and raise some sponsorship money yourself.
Extra Life will be taking place on the 2nd November at 08:00 in every time zone (EST for us) and will carry on until the following 08:00 on the 3rd November (when the clocks change). Keep your eyes locked to The Palace of Wisdom and the TPoW Team page for news and updates.
With your help we can really help make a difference.
Thanks for reading.
