Extra Life Charity Event

APR 1 - MAY 1, 2024

StartPlaying is excited to announce that for the month of April our Charity event will be benefitting Extra Life. From April 1st to the 31st, Game Masters can run sessions where 100% of the proceeds go to benefit Extra Life and their work. StartPlaying will match funds raised by all GMs in this way up to $1000. About the Extra Life: Extra Life is a fundraising program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. The Extra Life community fundraises year-round to Change Kids’ Health to Change the Future. Donations go to local member hospitals to fund critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, and child life services. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $110 million USD to Change Kids' Health to Change the Future. Right now, children's hospitals need YOUR support. StartPlaying is waiving our standard 10% cut from bookings for all charity games, and we will match funds raised by all GMs up to $1000. Join Game Masters in supporting Extra Life by participating in these charity games throughout April.

$2,467.00 raised. Let's get to $1,000.00!
