The Rift Herald does Extra Life

Come join the team this Saturday for 24 hours of games!

UPDATE: At 8 a.m. EST we will be live on Twitch! Come watch us play some video games and help contribute to this awesome cause by donating!

On Saturday, November 5th, the Rift Herald team will be coming together and streaming for 24 hours to support Extra Life.

What is Extra Life? Well I am glad that you asked. Extra Life is a charity to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals around the country. Teams of all shapes and sizes come together on one designated day a year to play video games for 24 hours. Over the years, thousands of gamers have come together and raised millions of dollars to help hospitals all over, but I will let their data speak for itself.

Now that we all know who the awesome people are over at Extra Life, some of you may be asking “what is a Rift Herald?” Well, The Rift Herald is a co-venture from SB Nation and Polygon dedicated to all things League of Legends. We have coverage for esports, skins, new champions and patch changes, and all things Teemo related.

This year, the donations towards Team Rift Herald will be going to the Children's National Medical Center in Washington DC. If you have the means, please consider donating to this awesome cause either through Team Rift Herald, or many of the other awesome teams out there. If you don’t have the means but you have the time (or even if you do have the means and you are a super cool person), consider joining our streaming roster and help raise awareness by hosting your own 24 hour game-athon. Either way, we hope to see you all come out and support Extra Life with us this coming Saturday on Twitch, bright and early!

Remember, Kled Pete wants YOU to donate to Extra Life!
