      This event is for a great cause. They are accepting donations for Child's Play and will donate $10 if they win a match and $20 if they lose! Child's Play is a great charity that sets up wishlists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. They also receive cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, they purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities.

      Additionally, we are very excited to announce that Dasha and Clare will be hosting Game Nights on PlayStation 3! This Sunday, January 18th at 12 PM CST (6 PM GMT) we will be playing Assassin's Creed 4! Add sherlock_strikes on PSN and let her know you want to play! She'll send you an invite when she's ready!

      We have launched our Extra Life 2015 team! Our goal this year is $2,000 and we need your help to get there! Extra Life is a wonderful charity that partners directly with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. All your donations will help fund the treatments that sick kids so desperately need and will support their families through this difficult time.

      We'll have more info on our 24 hour stream in September (probably), but for now, you can click here to join our team and start fundraising!
