Thanks For Watching Game Informer, MinnMax, and Easy Allies' Extra Life 2021 Charity Stream!

Update: Thanks to your overwhelming support, this weekend, we were able to raise over $50,000 (and still climbing) for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in Saint Paul, Minnesota. If you watched the stream, donated, or otherwise participated, THANK YOU! And we also want to say an extra special “Thank you” to community members like Bob Buel, Plaid Yeti, and Zachary Pligge who helped raise additional support. 

In case you missed it, this year’s show was a total blast! We auctioned off some incredible game memorabilia, such as a Mega Man X Legacy Cartridge from iam8bit, a MinnMax-themed Gameboy Advance, and the first-ever copy of Game Informer Gold, which auctioned for $2000! Mark your calendars for Extra Life 2022 right now!

You can watch the full live stream archives here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three. 

Original Post: It’s that time of year again! The entire Game Informer staff is coming together with MinnMax for a massive, 25-hour live stream, complete with rare auctions and wild antics. This year, we’ll also be joined by a few members from the Easy Allies team, so this party could get pretty rowdy! Click here to donate to Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare right now!

Last year, we raised over $40,000 for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare during our Extra Life livestream. This year you can be a part of all the fun by watching or playing with us. 

Starting on November 6 at 8 a.m. CST, we’ll stream for 25 hours to raise money for Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in Saint Paul, Minnesota! We’ll be playing a variety of wild games, auctioning off several game codes, and getting up to a bunch of hijinx. Donate right now for a good cause by clicking here! You can follow all the action right here or on Game Informer and MinnMax‘s YouTube channels.
