#EXTRALIFE FTW! Join Us! Be A Hero!


Hello and welcome back. It's a beautiful day, but that's only because it's Friday, and I'm fracking done with this week. Instead of complaining about my week, or going on a rant about what's grinding my gears today; I wanted to a take a little bit time to be serious, and talk to you about Extra Life.

Extra Life is a charity that was established to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The money they raise is used to pay for research, purchase life-saving equipment, and pay for uncompensated care. Their hospitals treat every patient that comes to them, without regard or concern for a child's family's ability to pay. CMN states that their mission, is to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. All of the donations raised make it possible for them to do that!

The Extra Life movement was founded by Jeromy Adams, in 2008 in memory of Victoria Enmon, with the support of SarcasticGamer.com. Victoria's story, and the story of Extra Life can be found in the video below:



To celebrate the life of Victoria and help raise needed funds to help kids, hold the Extra Life National Game Day. This 24 hour gaming marathon will be held Saturday, November 5th this year. This year, BaicunnPress.com will be teaming up with RUM Gaming for Game Day. If you'd like to get involved, head on over to Extra-Life.org, signup and/ or donate. You can start your own team, or join a team to help. If you'd like, cruize over to RUM Gaming to join in with us. They're a good people, that are always welcoming. Also on their page, you'll find links to their Extra Life campaigns, and the live stream. We'll be playing 7Days, Paladins, Warface, ARK, Arma3, LoL, and more. Just as a warning, the language at times can get a little salty, but it's always in good fun.

If you don't fell like signing up or joining a team, please use the Widgets below or in the sidebar to donate. This is such and important cause, and we can really help so many kids. Thank you again, for your continued  support of BaicunnPress. Hopefully, I'll be talking to some of you very soon via Discord. I look forward to gaming with you.
