After last year’s virtual get-together, we were so thrilled to return to form this year for the Couch Bandits’ annual charity stream, Game-A-Thon, live and in person!
Once again, it’s been a stressful, uncertain, and scary year for many, but we still wanted to get together and give back to the institutions and people who need it most: hospitals, healthcare workers, and patients.
We teamed up with Extra Life to host a charity Twitch stream, aiming to raise money for our local children’s hospitals, and we’d love to extend a huge thanks to our friends, family, and fellow gamers who helped us exceed our goal for 2021’s Game-A-Thon.
This year’s Game-A-Thon lasted a staggering 12+ hours, during which 5+ pizzas were consumed, and we managed to raise an impressive $623 for the Extra Life Foundation. All of that money was directly donated to our respective children’s hospitals of choice in the Children’s Miracle Network. This is a more than $150 dollar increase from 2020’s charity stream, and we cannot express our gratitude enough.
Thank you to everyone who donated! Your contribution is going toward a great cause that we’ll continue to support in the future. We could not have done this without you and can’t wait to do this all again at the end of 2022.
If you’d like to donate, there is still time: We’ll leave our team page open for donations right here.
If you missed out on the stream, you can watch it below. We played a ton of board games and card games!
Thank you so much for your kind donations and continued support. We can’t wait to see what the new year has in store for us!
