What is the Extra-Life 25 Hour Charity Event? For 25 hours gamers everywhere stream their efforts to play video games (or board games) for twenty-five hours, or a similar event such as holding a 25 hour board and video gaming party. If you sign up to take on this daunting task, then it is up to you to find sponsors for your efforts in friends and family. They offer to sponsor for $X per hour, so $1 per hour would be a total of $25, OR a flat-rate (so you can just contribute $25 total).
More information can be found in the site's official FAQ.
So what's the plan? I shall be running the event and will be the primary fellow staying up 25 hours in order to stream what I can. However, we all know that when GamersWithJobs gets together as a community, we can accomplish some amazing things. Imagine if we not only all get together and sponsor ourselves, but if we encourage each of our friends and family to sponsor as well? I'd say that's bound to be a successful charity.
On the whole, we figure we get what games we can together that members of the community would like to play. Even if you can't stream, I'm sure we can get a bunch of folks together for a private match in, say, Halo: Reach and Team Fortress 2.

So where do you come in? Do you have a game you'd like to play? A game you'd like to see played? The ability to stream games on a platform one of our primary players are unable to do? Do you have money you can use to donate to the cause? There are a variety of ways to help out.
