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



This is Team ArenaNet's third year playing games and helping kids! We couldn't do this without you, the community of Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2, and we thank you all for being a part of our Extra Life 2019 event. Read on for the event schedule and how you can be part of things! 

In the game

Visit the Guild Wars 2 gem store today to get a free revive orb and purchase our special Extra Life donation items! We'll donate all proceeds from sales of these items to Extra Life:

The Extra Life Donation Bundle contains a Mini Guardian Angel Aurene, five Extra Life Karma Boosters, and five Temporary Selfless Potions so you and Aurene can wear matching halos. The Extra Life Karma Boosters can also be purchased separately in bundles of 1, 5, and 20. Purchasing any of the items will grant you a version of the in-game title “The Extra Life” in blue text. These special items will only be available until November 3, so pick yours up today!

If we reach $75,000 in overall donations, players who purchased donation items will also receive a free Permanent Feisty Feline Tonic, which will transform you into a cute tiger cub with cunning combat skills.

Players who log in to Guild Wars 2 between October 25 and November 4 will automatically receive an achievement and the title “The Extra Life” if they did not already unlock it in 2018.

Once we hit our first fundraising goal of $10,000, an in-game event will begin within the hour and last until 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-8) on November 11. While active, the event will award all characters an enhancement:

  • +5% Magic Find
  • +5% EXP from all sources
  • +3% WvW reward track progress
  • +3% PvP reward track progress

Every $10,000 we raise past the initial goal will grant another stack of the enhancement. For every $15,000 raised, all players will receive 15,000 karma, up to a total of 75,000.
