G3 is a cause gaming event that begins at exactly 8 a.m. in your local time zone on Saturday, Oct. 1, and ends at 8 a.m on Sunday, Oct. 2. Sign up to participate, ask friends and family members to donate to you through the Extra Life website, and play games to help benefit kids in your local community. If you can't make this day work, you can do G3 whenever it's convenient for you. As part of the event, all participants will receive a free Xbox LIVE Gold Membership for the weekend to play their favorite games with friends and family.
The idea and spirit of G3 is that everyone pulls together at the same time to play games and raise money for kids, but we know that's not going to be possible for everyone. The G3 event will take place on October 1st on Xbox LIVE, however we encourage people to play games and log hours in the days leading up to G3. What matters most is that you participate and that you are raising funds for kids at your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital.
Extra Life is an annual gaming event that raises money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The annual Extra Life 24-hour video game marathon will happen on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2011. G3 is a participating member of Extra Life, with a separate event happening Oct. 1, 2011 on Xbox LIVE.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donors will receive an IRS compliant tax receipt.
Any and all games that can be played on Xbox 360. If you wish, you can also play Xbox LIVE games on your Windows Phone.
You can game for as many or as few hours as you like. If you won't be able to finish the whole thing, you can make up the remaining hours later. It's all on the honor system and what really matters is that we're all raising money for a great cause.
Absolutely. Just follow the prompts during the registration process to create a team. You can recruit your friends and fellow gamers to join your team and participate in G3.
Credit card donations may be made on a participant's fundraising page. Cash and check donations will be collected by participants and submitted to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. All funds will be disbursed directly to the hospital selected during registration.
Of course. Or, in the spirit of teamwork, you could also opt to sponsor a fellow participant.
We are asking each gamer to find at least four people to sponsor them at $5 per hour. But that is simply a guide. Ask as many or as few people as you like. Remember, the more people, the more you can raise for a great cause!
Yes, you can! If you signed up as an individual during registration but would like to join a team now, please email email@example.com. Make sure to include your name, email address and the name of the team you would like to join.
