I wanted to share a cool opportunity to participate in an upcoming Xbox LIVE charity event on October 1, called “Gaming and Giving for Good” (G3) to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. G3 encourages Xbox LIVE members to come together and raise money with the help of family and friends for every hour spent gaming online. Anyone interested in participating will need to register at Xbox.com/g3 and will receive a free Xbox LIVE Gold Membership for the weekend to play their favorite games.
Xbox has also partnered with GameStop to help drive participation across the country and host in-store events with celebrities to raise awareness for the effort. GameStop and 2K Games have already raised more than $70,000 USD for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals in advance of the online event, while Hulu, EA, Capcom Entertainment, Square Enix and other partners have also pledged their support.
This is a great excuse to get online and play with your friends, all while contributing to a worthy cause.
We hope to see you there.
Those interested in raising money, donating or learning more about G3 can visit www.xbox.com/g3 to register and find more information.
