Thanks for an amazing Extra Life!

Exciting Updates to our Extra Life 2014 Event!

unnamedThe past few weeks have been the coolest few weeks of my tenure at Metaverse. Recently, we announced our participation in the Extra Life 2014 event (happening this weekend, October 25 – 26), and we’re excited about some huge updates regarding the event….

But first, curious about Extra Life?  It’s a 24-hour gaming charity that allows groups of gamers (be it board, PC, or console gamers) to raise money for local hospitals within the Children’s Miracle Network.

Now for the exciting update: the generous donations from all our supporters have gained us an invite to the Extra Life United 2014 Tournament and Momentum – CMN Hospitals’ Celebration 2014 November 11th-14th!  I will be attending on Metaverse Mod Squad’s behalf, and I am both excited and honored.

The Extra Life United 2014 Tournament is an inaugural tournament where 64 competitors get to compete for the 4 top spots. Those top 4 players get to face off against 12 popular Twitch streamers. The top prize is $50,000 for the lucky winner’s local CMN hospital, and the top 6 players will get some prize winnings for their local CMN hospital as well. Unfortunately we won’t know the PS4 game until we arrive in Orlando for the event (no upper hands for anyone!). The tournament will be streamed live by Twitch, so please tune in November 11th-13th!

unnamedThe Momentum – CMN Hospitals’ Celebration 2014 is an amazing conference that allows everyone to learn more about Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, their partners, and some of the children and families we are striving to help.  Be sure to keep an eye on the Metaverse Twitter (@Metav3rse) and my Instagram or Metaverse Mod Squad’s Instagram (@metaversemodsquad) to catch a glimpse!

Thanks to everyone who donated to our Extra Life team! Without you this amazing event invitation would not have been possible. You’ve given us the chance to help the CMN kids’ and their families even after October 25th!

Please be sure to also continue to spread the word about our Extra Life, and donate if you’re able. Your support is both awesome and so very helpful.

    I have been trying to figure it out all week! (haha) I think maybe Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, a fighter, or a racing game.

    If anyone else has some ideas, feel free to post! 😀
