PlayStation and Extra Life Team Up For Children’s Hospitals

Morgan Haro's Avatar Posted by Morgan Haro on Oct 03, 2013 // Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

PlayStation believes in the power of our gaming community to do good in the world. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the video game based charity Extra Life to generate a call to arms to the PlayStation community to help raise money for children’s hospitals across the country.

Extra Life is a gaming event benefiting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for children’s hospitals and the medical treatment, programs and charitable care that is provided to kids in their communities. For years, Extra Life has motivated gamers across the U.S. and Canada to drive donations to their local member children’s hospital, and this year, PlayStation is joining their efforts.

PlayStation Prizes for Extra Life Activities

You can get involved in raising donations for children’s hospitals in need and get great prizes in the process. Here’s how:

Extra Life

  • Click here to go to the Extra Life registration page
  • Select Extra Life ‘Classic’
  • Decide whether you want to join as an individual, create a team, or join an existing one. If you’re not sure, just join as an individual. If you decide to join a team, feel free to join any team you wish.
  • Select ‘PlayStation’ under the ‘What movement are you joining?’ question.
  • Complete the rest of the fields, it should only take a few more seconds.

Now you’ll be all set to have your own profile to share with the world and raise donations. Don’t be shy about telling your friends and family about the cause you’re supporting to raise donations!

    Yeah, after 2 years on the Plus posts, it was time for me to move on; but no it wasn’t due to critiques ;) Kristine writes those now and she’s got her eyes on all of the PSN content every week, so she’s a bit more in tune with what’s coming for Plus. But in terms of getting your suggestions back to the teams, we’re still all over that!

I’ve supported the Playstation Nation guys for a few years now and one year I was fortunate enough to win a prize pack from them with seven EA Sports titles from that year.

Then a year later I feel I was able to benefit from the work of these Children’s Hospitals, and maybe indirectly Extra Life as well, when my second daughter was born 12 weeks early, weighing just over two pounds. She was in the hospital for her first eight weeks before we were able to bring her home on Christmas Eve.

Supporting Extra Life and the PSNation crew made me feel proud to be part of a community that is willing to do something good for the kids and people they’ve never even met.

    That’s an amazing story, and I’m glad to hear that your daughter was able to be brought home safe and sound. Glad to have your support, and I think we’re all in a good position to do something good as a gaming community.

This is my first Extra Life event, but I’ve been doing Dance Marathon for CMN for two years now. I’m so excited to be able to participate in this, and it makes me even more of a Sony fan by seeing you all support a great cause.
