- Sony PlayStation Digital Platforms Community Manager Morgan Haro
announced today that PlayStation and Extra Life have teamed up for Children's Hospitals.
To quote: PlayStation believes in the power of our gaming community to do good in the world.
That's why we've teamed up with the video game based charity Extra Life to generate a call to arms to the PlayStation community to help raise money for children's hospitals across the country.
Extra Life is a gaming event benefiting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a nonprofit organization that raises funds for children's hospitals and the medical treatment, programs and charitable care that is provided to kids in their communities.
For years, Extra Life has motivated gamers across the U.S. and Canada to drive donations to their local member children's hospital, and this year, PlayStation is joining their efforts.
