WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT
Every year, the Extra Life Organization raises money to support the Children's Miracle Network through a 24-hour gaming marathon. This year, PMC's moderation team is going to do everything we can to help this worthy cause. But, we can't do it alone. This is where YOU come in...
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Our goal is to raise as much money as possible to help fund the treatment of children who cannot otherwise afford care. In order to do this, we need donations. Lots and lots of them. All of the proceeds go directly towards hospitals involved in the Children's Miracle Network - that is, PMC doesn't actually even handle the money involved.
There are several ways you can help. The first and most obvious would be to MAKE A DONATION.
If you want to do more, you can also make a pledge to any team member. A pledge is an hourly-contribution promise - that is, you agree to donate an amount per hour that the team members you select end up playing. To make a pledge, pick a TEAM MEMBER from the team list, then press the "SUPPORT ME" button on their donations page.
Donations and pledges may be made via paypal or credit card. All donations may be claimed as tax-deductions.
Extra-Life will provide you with a tax receipt for any donations made.
If you are for some reason unable to contribute even just a few dollars, that doesn't mean you can't help save lives. We're sure that you all know plenty of people who enjoy Minecraft - but more importantly, we're also sure that you know plenty of people who love being alive.
