Wizards of the Coast is raising funds for Extra Life, benefiting Seattle Children’s Hospital—and you can help!
This year we’re striving to raise more than ever before through a dedicated product, a streamer campaign, Extra Life streams, and uncut sheet auctions. Join us and help support children in need!
It’s as easy as pressing the big green button. Thank you for donating to our incredible cause!
Magic Extra Life’s many tentacled arms all feed our larger goal. From posting about the cause on social media to buying our merch, everything helps. Thank you!
Headlining the Magic Extra Life 2019 campaign is the brand-new Ponies: The Galloping product. It includes three silver-bordered Magic cards (one double-sided!) and features some of our favorite My Little Pony characters.
Look how cute they are:
Ponies: The Galloping can be found on Hasbro Pulse from October 22nd to November 5th for the price of $50. Wizards of the Coast will donate Thirty Dollars ($30.00) to Seattle Children’s Hospital for each copy of Ponies: The Galloping sold.
Starting October 1st, check out www.ebay.com/wotccharity where we’ll be auctioning off more than 20 uncut foil sheets between October 23rd and November 2nd. Sheets include a foil New Phyrexia rare and mythic sheet and a foil Throne of Eldraine alternate art and showcase card sheet. You’ll sleep well at night with these sheets—all proceeds go to Extra Life!
We’re holding a competition between content creators to see who can raise the most for Extra Life. Interested streamers can create Extra Life pages and join the Magic super team—competing either alone or in teams of up to six. The Top 8 teams will get access to codes for their audience, featuring a premium card style for Inspiring Veteran.
Magic Extra Life 2019 has two major in-house steaming events:
Through the week of October 28, Wizards of the Coast employees will take over twitch.tv/magic to play Arena, MTGO, and generally goof around in the pursuit of charity.
The streams run from Oct. 28 – Nov 1, 9.am. – 12noon PST.
On November 2nd, at 4pm PST, the Magic Extra Life finale event begins! We’ll feature multiple influencers and stream from Wizards of the Coast headquarters. Folks will be playing Magic Arena and competing in “special” challenges.
