Team Platform Nation needs your help! We need your help in raising money for a great cause, Extra Life. As gamers we love to give back to the community and this is for a great cause as the money raised will go to local children’s hospitals. We do understand times are tough but even a small donation is helpful. Time is running out as we will start playing our 24 hour marathon 10/16/2010 at 8 a.m. so visit Platform Nations Team page and make your donation every little bit helps. Stay tuned as we will be providing links for live streams so you can check in on some of Team Platform Nations participants while they are playing.

PLAY GAMES. HELP KIDS.
This year’s event begins at 8:00am in your local time zone on October 16th, 2010. Each of our participants is currently raising money by recruiting at least 4 sponsors to give $1.00 for each hour of the marathon (that’s $24.00 per sponsor).
What makes Extra Life so incredibly easy, is that you can do it from the comfort of your own home. While many churches and school do lock-ins for Extra Life, you don’t HAVE to go anywhere. What’s more, you can play any game or games you want during the event. Xbox 360, PS3, PC, even games on your phone count.
If you can’t play the full 24 hours on October 16th due to work or personal commitments, nobody is going to kick down your door and stick a controller in your hand. You can make up the time later, or even get ahead by playing some of your 24-hours BEFORE the event.
The important thing is to make the commitment to help local children get better. This year, Extra Life benefits Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, meaning that 100% of the money you raise will stay right where you live at your local CMN hospital.
