Sony has joined in on helping to promote the Extra Life charity by offering some much needed real estate to promote it on PlayStation Network. In a blog post this morning, the folks at Extra Life announced that Sony is helping to promote the charity to the 78 million PlayStation 3 owners around the world and to help them find a local Children's Miracle Network Hospital to support.
"We are so thrilled that the folks at Sony and PlayStation are motivating their gaming force to join Extra Life 2013," Extra Life wrote on its blog. "What does this mean? It means a whole new group of gamers are about to learn why gaming can have a give-back edge AND change the lives of kids at their member hospital. It means more smiles, less pain and faster healing for the kids we serve!"
In case you didn't know, Extra Life is a charity that encourages gamers to play games for 25 hours in one day to support a local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Players commit to playing games on Nov. 2 (or another date of their choosing) in exchange for sponsorship from friends and family. The money they raise goes to a Children's Miracle Network Hospital of their choosing.
You can learn more about the charity at www.extra-life.org. On a related note, the Entertainment Consumers Association (ECA) has its own Extra Life team, and we would love to have your support. You can sponsor one of our 12 players or join the team here.
