Giant Bomb Extra Life 2019


On November 2nd starting at 9am EST, I'll be playing games for at least 25 hours to raise funds for sick kids at Duke Children's hospital!
Be sure to tune in on Twitch starting at 9am!
Disclosure: I work at Epic Games 

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  • On Game Day (Nov. 2nd), I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!

  • 100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

  • What platforms will you be playing on?

    • I will have a PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and a 360 hooked up ready to go!

  • What are you playing

    • Right now my schedule (which is surely going to change) is as follows:


For anyone who knows what the Gameboy Macro is you will be please to know I'm raffling THREE macros off during this stream! 

Rules will be the same as last year. Every $5 counts for one entry in the raffle. eg: $20 = 4 entries. 

Once you donate simply message me on  Facebook  or email me at [email protected] with a screenshot of your donation (or forward the email) and which color(s) you'd like to be entered for. The options are:

  1. Purple Macro with Stereo Speakers
  2. Black/Silver Macro
  3. Red/Gold Macro XL

*If you do not pick a color I will randomly enter you for one. Alternatively if you don't care which color, then I'll just split your entries evenly across them. 

**If you forget to forward your donation email I will still enter you based on your Extra-Life donation notification and contact you via the "Send thanks" button. But an email is much easier for me to work with. 

Donation incentives

Just enter the details in your notes! Any game requests you can stack by donating multiples if you so choose.

Note: A full list of games I own on steam is here: any other games I may not own, I'll buy based on the price points below. 

  • Any donation of $5 or more enters you into the raffle. These do stack, so $10 is two, $15 is 3, etc!
  • Any donation of $50 or more - I'll play any game you want ($10 or less) for at least 30 minutes.
  • Any donation of $100 or more - I'll play any game you want ($20 or less) for at least an hour.
  • Any donation of $250 or more - I'll play any game you want ($50 or less) for at least three hours
  • If we hit $2000 I will extend the stream by 12 hours, for a total of 37 hours.
  • If we hit $2500 I will do the One Chip Challenge on stream, at the end of the first 24 hours.
  • If we hit $4000 (last years total) I will also raffle off a Nintendo Switch and your choice of game ($60 or less). (Read below for more details on this)

*Games must be easily attainable (eg: Epic Store, Steam, GOG, etc)

Nintendo Switch Raffle

I have simply not had the time to build more Macro shells this year, but I want to raffle SOMETHING as a stretch goal, why not a Switch?! If we can hit $4000 I will raffle off a Switch and whatever game you want, provided it is $60 or less. There is no special process for this raffle. All of the existing $5 raffle entries will get entered into this. Why $4000? That is what we raised last year, so I'd certainly like to beat it!

What Games am I planning?

I have a tentative plan for some games, I'll finalize a list soon!
