Codename Entertainment

Extra Life 2018

Our video game studio Codename Entertainment is on a mission to save kids through gaming, and we need your help. This is the FIFTH TIME the studio has gamed for the kids, and every year we're astounded by your generosity.

Each of us has chosen the BC Children's Hospital Foundation where thousands of children are treated each year. 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 the BC Children's Hospital Foundation. We can't do this without your help. 

This Year:

You can donate in-game or from the Extra Life page of any of our currently supported games. Check out their pages for more details!

Or you can donate to any of the Codename staff  who have Extra Life pages.  Artist Kat is offering a chance to be immortalized by her art if you donate to her page.

Donating online is safe and easy! 

To make an online donation please click a participant's name and then click the "Support This Participant" button on this page. Thank you for caring for our kids!
