Xbox will host a 24-hour gaming livestream on Giving Tuesday, November 30, celebrating Xbox’s 20th Anniversary and will raise funds through Extra Life, a program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. In commemoration of Xbox’s key milestone, we are playing through 20 years of games featuring nostalgic favorites, as well as new and exciting titles. The streaming event kicks off at 10am PST (Pacific Standard Time) and will include popular Xbox personalities, celebrities, unforgettable gameplay, and epic prizes* (see official rules here). During the stream, the Xbox community can donate via Tiltify link. Continuing the fun from our past Extra Life stream in 2019, we invite fans to tune into the Official Xbox Channel on Twitch and enjoy the wacky and unpredictable shenanigans that we’ve all come to expect from this 24-hour stream!
Xbox legends like Major Nelson, Aaron Greenberg, and Phil Spencer will all hop on to have fun with the fans, to show their support and raise funds for a wonderful cause. The stream will also feature giveaways of amazing prizes and other fun gaming swag.
Xbox has demonstrated a long tradition of support for Extra Life and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. ”We are honored to be included in the Xbox 20th Anniversary celebrations,” says Teri Nestel, President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Now more than ever, philanthropy is crucial to ensure children’s hospitals are supported so kids continue to receive the best care possible – no matter life’s circumstances. They [Xbox community and fans] understand that donations can transform how children’s hospitals meet the urgent needs brought on by the pandemic, while still maintaining an exceptional standard of care and well-being. Even better when you can do all of that while playing games!”
Team Xbox is excited to see what we can raise together for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All donations will help fund the areas of most critical need including critical life-saving treatments and healthcare services, along with innovative research, vital pediatric medical equipment, child life services that put kids’ and families’ minds at ease during difficult hospital stays and financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford these health services.
