Who knew that hours of online video game playing could actually be used to raise money for a great cause? The organization Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world and raises money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Much like the runners in charity marathons, gamers sign up sponsors for tournaments and turn their play into fundraising. To date, over $30 million has been raised to help children in need all over the country. To learn more (and play!), visit extra-life.org.
