Shacknews held a 25 hour Twitch stream marathon for Extra Life at our Intergalactic Headquarters in New Jersey. Nicole Fulmino, who works with Extra Life and the Children's Miracle Network, stopped by to tell us about the charity that we have supported for the last three years. Nicole works with Children's Specialized Hospital in New Jersey and Shacknews had a chance to play games with the kids on Friday night before the stream. The facilities are truly top notch and it is an inspiration to see how Children's Specialized Hospital has adapted over the years to serve their community.
It was an honor to play games for the kids last week. Team Shacknews has raised $43,855 so far this year! There is still time, so please consider donating for the kids! Shacknews represented almost one third of the donations to Extra Life in New Jersey this year! We are very proud of this achievement and we take our committment to serving our community very seriously. Thank you to everyone who donated their time, money, and LOLs, during our Twitch marathon. Thanks to all of the chatty streamers who carried the baton for us while we caught some ZZZ's on Sunday. We all did a great thing and I know that our team is already excited for next year's marathon!
