Extra Life Helps Bring Charity to TwitchCon

Tomorrow, thousands will descend upon the San Diego Convention Center for TwitchCon, the streaming platform’s yearly celebration of its talented and creative community. TwitchCon 2019 will take place September 27-29. Extra Life will be there representing the best the gaming community can offer in the DonorDrive Charity Arcade.

DonorDrive provides a platform to power the most used charity streaming programs. At this year’s TwitchCon, they have partnered with the convention to create a space for attendees to learn about how they can raise funds for the charities that are nearest and dearest to their hearts. As part of the DonorDrive Charity Arcade, Extra Life will be at TwitchCon to show everyone how to harness streaming to support sick and injured kids in their local hospitals.

As part of the draw to Extra Life’s area of the show floor, one of our most popular booth attractions will be make a reappearance: The Human Claw Machine! With prizes donated by sponsors from across the industry, attendees will be able to line up and strap in to be dunked into a giant pit of awesome and mysterious prizes. The device drew record numbers to Extra Life’s booth at this year’s E3, so we figured we’d break it back out for TwitchCon 2019!

“This year, we will bring our human claw machine to TwitchCon 2019 in the DonorDrive Charity Arcade,” said Extra Life’s Managing Director Mike Kinney. “TwitchCon attendees can try their luck for free loot as they are harnessed onto a crane-like device and dipped into a pit of games, collectibles and gaming accessories from several of our sponsors and partners.”

TwitchCon 2019 will be one of the biggest events Twitch has ever thrown. Lil Nas X will headline the show while attendees enjoy their favorite streamers appearing in gaming tournaments, educational talks, and open panel discussions that will tackle a variety of topics. There will also be a significant floor presence for merchandise, meet-and-greets, and convention specific events. It’s going to be a fantastic time and we really hope that we’ll be seeing you stop by the Extra Life booth in the DonorDrive Charity Arcade to say hello and give the Human Claw Machine a try!

Let’s keep pushing on toward Game Day together, For The Kids.
