Celebrate National Video Games Day on Wednesday, September 12 by supporting Connecticut Children’s!

Today, September 12th, is National Video Games Day! There are a few ways here in Connecticut that you can support your local children’s hospital while celebrating by playing video games.

Sign up for Extra Life:

Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $40 million for sick and injured kids. Sign up today and dedicate a day of play for kids in your community. Be a hero. Sign Up today!

Make a donation at a Game Stop Store:

Celebrate the day by stocking up on some new video games at a local Game Stop store! When you check out at the register, you can donate $1, $5, $10 or round up your change to the nearest dollar and your donation will be split evenly between Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and Make-A-Wish.

GameStop will be helping “local kids get back to being kids” by asking for donations between August 29 and September 30.

Thank you for celebrating National Video Games Day by impacting your local community!
