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


One more week!

Team ArenaNet is one week away from our 24-hour Extra Life livestream event on, so we want to share a little preview of our plans! 

During last year's Extra Life event we raised $16,555 in support of Children's Miracle Network hospitals, and earlier this month we announced that we'd be matching your donations up to that amount for 2018 for a total of $33,110. 

We're excited to announce that we've raised our donation matching commitment to $25,000! Help us get Team ArenaNet $25,000 for Extra Life this year, and we'll match it for a total of $50,000 for Children's Miracle Network!

We're also supporting Extra Life in Guild Wars 2 this year! Every player who logs into Guild Wars 2 during our 24-hour Extra Life event will receive a special title, "The Extra Life", and can pick up a free Revive Orb in the gem store: An extra life for Extra Life! 

If we reach our team goal of $50,000 including ArenaNet's matching contribution, every player who logged in during our Extra Life event will receive an in-game mail with karma equal to the amount of money we raised. (i.e. $50,000 raised=50,000 karma, $55,000 raised=55,000 karma) If we keep going and reach $60,000 total, that in-game mail will include a bonus gift: an Endless Interface Crafter Golem Tonic!

Finally, if we reach our $50,000 goal by the time the event ends, we’ll kick off a special seven-day reward buff for everyone in Guild Wars 2 with bonuses to magic find, XP gain, WvW reward track progress, and PvP reward track progress. This bonus amount will stack for every $10,000 we raise beyond our $50,000 goal.

Lots of Guild Wars 2 devs will be streaming during our event, and they'll have lots of giveaways to share along with a few surprises along the way! Check out the schedule below and join us on #ForTheKids
