It is the responsibility of every successful organization to give something back. Towards that end, GSC is a proud supporter of Extra Life.
Extra Life is a non-profit organization that raises funds for the “Children’s Miracle Network” of hospitals. The money goes towards helping pay for the medical expenses of kids in the hospital.
Our first charity fundraiser event occurred on the weekend of August 22-23rd with an initial goal of $250. This goal was shattered within the first hour, so kDoGG3n4 put his beard on the line for $500. After $500 he continued to play with a half-shaven face, with the next stretch goal set at $1,000 for another shave.
In total, we raised a whopping $1,200, nearly five times our original goal! We are overwhelmed by the support we received from our amazing community.
Our next charity stream marathon was during Extra Life’s annual fundraising event on November 7th and 8th, with an initial goal of $2,200. Thanks to the efforts of our community and #FALnation, we raised nearly $2,800 total for 2015!
A BIG thank you to everyone that donated to Extra Life and hyped their events! We look forward to more charity drives in the future!
