What is Extra Life?
Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $40 million for sick and injured kids. It is a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise funds and awareness for these kids across U.S and Canada. The donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and charitable care.

How to Win
For every $5 USD donated to the team between now and 11/3, 12:00am EST, you will receive 1 entry into the drawing. The drawing will be recorded and posted with the winners approximately 1 week after the event ends. We will be reaching out to the winners no later than November 17th and they must confirm response within 48 hours of being contacted or the prize will be forfeited and redrawn. Contact will be made through the email provided when donating to Extra Life. All prizes with the exception of the Swag Packs will be in this drawing. The swag packs will be given away throughout the event by the streamers.
You may only win a donated prize one time and the first prize drawn; if your name is drawn a second time, it will be immediately redrawn. The swag packs do not count toward this limit. Additionally, in the event a winner is chosen and they do not meet the delivery requirements of a prize they won, we will first work with them to attempt to have the prize shipped to a valid delivery address. We will make every attempt to work with them to get them their prize. If no conclusion can be reached, the prize will be forfeited and redrawn. Unfortunately, with the nature of this drawing and complexity involved, this is the best option. Additionally, all winners must be comfortable sharing their shipping address with a moderator.
/r/Fortnite Discord and /r/FortniteBR Discord servers will have a dedicated role and other benefits for those who choose to donate and participate in our community Extra Life event. We can verify everyone who has a linked Reddit account to their Discord on both platforms at once if you choose to use this Discord.
You may also post any questions you may have in the comments below. Additionally, all other questions and further discussion on Extra Life, news, and future community events will be in the Discord. Verified donors will receive a custom tag on our Discord Server.
The moderator team does not endorse, benefit, or have any financial gain from these giveaway products and/or companies; they do not represent the moderator team or Epic Games. All items were donated by their respective companies, for the community, to enjoy, in support of Extra Life.
