Extra Life 2015 starts on Saturday, 7th Nov and this year the event is slated to be bigger than ever! Be sure to join Trion Worlds as they team up with Extra Life to raise funds to save and improve the lives of kids across the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This year, the Extra Life 24hr gaming charity event will be held on the weekend of November 7th-8th 2015. Be sure to mark your calendars!

What is Extra Life?

For those new to the event, Extra Life is a charity run to support children through raising funds for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Although the charity accepts donations and holds events throughout the year, its main fundraiser is the annual 24hr gaming weekend where gamers play games for 24hrs to raise funds for the kids.

Team Trion Worlds 2015

This year Trion Worlds is back at it with a fundraising goal of $100,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

There will be a 24hr livestream filled with various giveaways, contests and fundraising milestone rewards. You can check out the fundraising milestone rewards for all Trion games here.

There’s also a “The Altruist” title for playing for 24hrs over the course of the event from 8am PST on 7th Nov til 8am PST on 9th Nov. For playing for 1 hour, you get “The Charitable” title.

Special Corgi and Sheep Rifts will pop up in-game as well so you can earn that “of House Fluffington” title from the “Suddenly, Corgis” achievement found Achievements (default key “h“) -> World Events.

RiftGrate’s Participation

I’ve been participating in the Extra Life charity event since the launch of RIFT in 2011 with over $400 donated for the kids. After launching RiftGrate back in 2013, the site has been a yearly participant as a fundraiser for Extra Life with over $600 raised!

This year’s goal for RiftGrate’s Fundraiser is $500!

To help shore up donations and get the word out, RiftGrate has multiple giveaways lined up for Extra Life this year including Collector’s Packs, Soul Packs and REX!
