Ashes of Creation raised over $83k for Extra Life, so Intrepid’s Steven Sharif had to shave his beard


Extra Life, the charity devoted to raising funds from gamers for children’s hospitals, has the motto “Play Games, Heal Kids.” We may suggest adding two more words to that: “Shave Beards.”

As part of its effort to raise funds for Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, Intrepid Studios engaged in a 24-hour broadcast with the Ashes of Creation dev team. This resulted in the team raising an impressive $83,650 for the charity — a final achievement that well shot past the hoped-for $20,000 mark.

And while fans who donated helped to accrue some extra goodies for their accounts, the real prize was to see Steven Sharif shave his beard. Which he did!
