ArenaNet Extra Life 2021

Join Our Team


 Thank you for joining us for our fifth annual Extra Life Game Day!

Thanks to your support, we’ve raised $381,659 to benefit Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in the years since we began participating in Extra Life. This year we’re aiming to raise $118,341, bringing our grand total to half a million dollars!

Here’s how you can help:

  • Give to to Children’s Miracle Network using the donate button at the top of this page! Your donation goes directly to Children’s Miracle Network.
  • Help spread the word about Extra Life—share our team page with your friends and family on your social channels.
  • Pick up the Extra Life Donation Bundles in the gem store. 100% of proceeds from your purchase will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network.

Each Extra Life Donation Bundle contains a mini to lift your spirits, 5 Extra Life Karma Boosters to show our gratitude, and 5 Temporary Selfless Potions to commemorate your kindness. If you don't already have it, you'll also receive the title "The Extra Life" in snazzy blue text.

This year's bundle includes a Mini Circle of Love Lady Wisteria--the fanciest cat in Divinity's Reach! Don't let her face or her terrifying reputation fool you; she's more than willing to purr faithfully by your side on Game Day.

The 2019 Extra Life Donation Bundle featuring Mini Guardian Angel Aurene and the 2020 Extra Life Donation Bundle featuring Mini Circle of Love Aurene will be retired after this year's event, so pick them up while you can!


We kick off our event at 12:00 PM Pacific on Friday the 5thand go for 24 hours. There will be gameplay, giveaways, viewer participation, and as per tradition: head-shaving.

This year, support is more important than ever. Due to continued widespread impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, families are losing health insurance and facing tremendous insecurity—some while caring for children in urgent need of medical treatment. Children’s hospitals are also investing in personal protective equipment, COVID-19 testing supplies, telehealth services, and more.

Your Extra Life 2021 donations will support this fund and help hospitals provide the lifesaving care kids need.
