Extra Life 2021 is Next Week

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on October 26, 2021

Team ArenaNet’s Extra Life Game Day is next week on November 5. We’re overwhelmed by your generosity and community spirit; with our community’s power we’ve already raised over $17,000 USD this year to support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals! Our ultimate goal is to bring our lifetime total funds raised to $500,000 USD, and we need your help to do it.

Your donations will help children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada care for ill and critically injured children whose families need support. They’ll also help hospitals buy pediatric medical equipment, fund disease research, and invest in protective measures against the COVID-19 pandemic.

To donate to Extra Life now, visit the Team ArenaNet page. If you’d like to help us reach our goal by streaming any game or telling your friends and family about Extra Life, choose to join Team ArenaNet when you sign up! If you want to form your own team, you can select “Create a sub team” when you sign up to join the ArenaNet Super Team.

The funds you raise as a member of Team ArenaNet will contribute to our overall donation total. As in previous years, if we reach the $25,000 USD donation goal, we’ll match it to bring the total donation to $50,000!

Extra Life Game Day Livestream

On Game Day, members of Team ArenaNet participate in a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise funds, have fun, and hang out with the community. The stream begins on Friday, 5 November at 7:00 p.m. (noon Pacific Time) and ends on Saturday, 6 November at 7:00 p.m. (noon Pacific Time).

During the livestream, Team ArenaNet will play Guild Wars® and Guild Wars 2 content, offer personal donation milestone incentives, and talk about what Extra Life means to them. Join them in game or watch the stream on our official Twitch channel. We’ll see you there!
