The Secret World and ARK get behind Extra Life

Gaming communities across the globe are throwing their support behind Extra Life, the 24-hour gaming marathon designed to raise money for Children’s Network Miracle Hospitals. We’ve already reported on how Trion Worlds is contributing to the event, and now you can add both The Secret World and ARK: Survival Evolved to the movement’s supporters.

Funcom posted a list of The Secret World community teams that have signed up to participate in the marathon. It also said that it will be giving a prize pack to the top two donors to each of the teams. Meanwhile, ARK is hosting a “survival of the fittest” PvP battle in which the winning teams will get a cash prize and an additional donation will be made to Extra Life on their behalf.

Extra Life’s all-day marathon takes place tomorrow, November 7th.

I never understood all the other fundraisers for various things built on having someone do something like run a 5k, and collect pledges from people for MS, as an example. Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to collect those “pledges” for charity, and spend the money on the event (running for MS, video game marathons for this, etc) on the cause itself? 
To be clear, that’s not me speaking against these types of fundraisers. Even the most inefficient fundraiser for a good cause is better than nothing. They just don’t make a whole lot of common sense.

For the kids :)
I am 1 hour and 30 minutes into the marathon. I started off with some Assasin’s Creed couch gaming to wake up, now I’m heading out to play Ingress.
