KingsIsle Gamers Raised over $14,000 for Extra Life 2020!

For several years now, KingsIsle gamers have bound together to raise money for charity through Extra Life. Thousands of gamers from all over the world teamed up to make 2020 a great year for Extra Life to raise money for Dell Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. We helped raise money for our local Austin Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.

As one of the largest fundraising events for the organization, Extra Life helps Children’s Miracle Network to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

From the CMN website:

More than 10 million kids enter a children’s hospital like Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

This year, hundreds of Wizards and Pirates joined together on the KingsIsle Gamers team, to play games and raise money for a great cause. Saturday, November 7, was the final grand finale where community livestreamers joined in to play our games. The team’s original goal was $10,000 but together we achieved over $14,000 raised! We even exceeded our fundraising last year by over $5,000!

Our team’s top fundraiser this year was the community group, Legends of the Spiral, with an amazing $1,250 raised! Team leaders who raised $100 or more received the new Wizard101 Candied Isles Bundle. These rewards are currently being sent out over the next several days. If you are a team leader and do not receive your reward by November 20, 2020, please contact community@kingsisle.com.

If you didn’t participate in Extra Life, don’t worry! The bundle is starting to become available in various GameStop stores and should also be available on their website soon.

Thanks so much to everyone who participated! We are endlessly proud of the generous spirit shown in the fans of KingsIsle games. See you on our team next year!
