Let the Games Begin: Extra Life 2021 is Saturday

Extra Life 2021 kicks off Saturday, November 6 at 8:00 a.m. PT., and we’re so excited for this year’s 25-hour gaming marathon! We always look forward to this fundraising event for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and we’ve got some great things planned this year. Read on to learn more!

Even though game day is almost here, there’s still time to take part in our silent auction. We’ve got so many items to choose from! Some of our awesome clients have donated items, like an A6 Scooter from Razor; water bottles from S’well; a solar generator from Generark; and a gift basket with can coolers, canteen, and hat from Toadfish. Plus, grab an Extra Life shirt bundle with a hat or headband, a cigar collector clock, custom art, tarot readings, and so much more. This is a must-see collection of goodies. Bid now on your favorite items! It’s another great way to participate and support the cause.

Another shopping option is our brand new pop-up store! Only open for a limited time, this is a great opportunity to get some exclusive, limited-edition ModSquad Extra Life swag. Your purchase goes to help heal sick kids, so don’t wait — the store closes soon!

Once that clock hits 8:00 a.m. PT on game day, things totally heat up! We’ve been doing this for eight straight years, and every year we put it all out there and crush our fundraising record again and again. In 2020, ModSquad raised more than $63,000 for Extra Life, landing us in the top 15 fundraisers for the year out of 5,000 teams from around the world. Let’s see how much we can raise this year!

As we try to beat that impressive total, we’ve got so much craziness and excitement planned, we couldn’t fit it into a 24-hour marathon session. Good thing we’ve got Daylight Savings to help — this year we have a full 25 hours of amazing activities running all day and all night! See a roundup of all of ModSquad’s Extra Life events. On top of all that, this year, we’re not just playing for the kids, we’re working too. Our Mods will be keeping things safe and fun online for CMNH and Extra Life.

And if you haven’t seen it all over social, here’s a visual preview of things to come, with info about this year’s marathon and a few choice clips from some of our, er, prouder moments from last year!

As you can tell from those clips, our players are fearless and willing to take on the nuttiest challenges, all in the name of helping heal kids. Don’t miss the action this year as members of Team ModSquad take on some of their zaniest feats yet. Check out our list of donation incentives, which will have our brave participants taking on Sour Oreo Roulette, eating a Bite O’ Wasabi, downing a Meal in a Blender, or partaking in some Edible Crickets. Open your wallets and maybe don’t watch while you’re eating, okay?

As if that’s not enough enticement, how about we double your contribution? That’s right — when you donate to Team ModSquad, your gift is worth twice as much! ModSquad will match the total amount raised by the team, up to $35,000. Please give generously and make your contribution go even further. It’s all happening on Twitch on game day, November 6. See you there!
