Donations stay local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.



BUFFALO BLIZZARD is a group of gamers in the Buffalo and Western New York area that are planning to participate in the Extra Life 24-Hour Gaming Campaign to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals. More specifically, we will be raising money to go towards a local hospital in the network – the Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

We'll be hosting a large fundraising event in the form of a 24-hour gaming marathon.  More information, including the date of the event and the venue, will be coming up soon.

For more information, please visit our team's website.


Sign up for our team on the Extra Life website and make a pledge to game with us (or a monetary donation to the hospital in advance). Let other people know about your campaign, and they can support your effort and donate to the cause via your profile! Then, participate in our 24-hour Game-A-Thon event where we can all fulfill our pledge and hang out for a great cause. Ideally, we’ll be live-streaming the event on Twitch so that people from around the world can see our dedication and donate, as well! Can’t make the event? No problem! You can game on your own, stream on your own, or make the effort in whatever limited time you can.


If you are interested in joining the team and participating, please hit the “Sign Up” button on this page. The more people on the team, the more fun we’ll all have on our hang out, and the bigger the impact we’ll make for the kids of Buffalo!

Our team is on a mission to save kids through gaming, and we need your help. Each of us has chosen our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

We'll be part of a huge international celebration of the social impact of gamers with Extra Life and it's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support us with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to that team member's chosen hospital. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. Last year, Extra Life raised more than $8 million dollars to save kids, but in 2016 our goals, just like the needs of the kids we serve, are much, much higher. We can't do this without your help. Donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation please click on the "Roster" tab, then on a participant's name and then click the "Donate" button on their page. Thank you for caring for our kids!
