Hotspawn raised $4,600 during Extra Life in 2018.

For the second year in a row, Hotspawn will be participating in Extra Life. Hotspawn will be streaming live on our Twitch channel from 8:00 a.m. EST on November 2 until 8:00 a.m. EST on November 3. During that 24-hour gaming marathon, we will be raising funds for our local children’s hospital with proceeds going to the IWK Foundation. Last year, Hotspawn raised $4,600 for the IWK Foundation.

In addition to the generous donations of our amazing community, Hotspawn will be matching all donations up to $2,500. This means your donations will be doubled to help take care of children in need.

Don’t think that we would overlook the generous contributions of our fans. Those who donate will also be entered in for various giveaways for some amazing prizes supplied by our amazing partners at Anda Seat, Audio-Technica, GFuel and Station Cold Brew Coffee.

How Can I Donate?

If you wish to donate, you simply go to our Extra Life Page, click the bright green “Donate” button and follow the simple steps. Remember, all donations within the first $2,500 will be matched with all proceeds going to the IWK Foundation.

Where Can I Watch?

To watch the 24-hour Extra Life stream, you simply just need to go to the Hotspawn Twitch channel. You can also click the yellow banner that will be displayed across the Hotspawn website during the stream to be taken directly there.

What Can I Win?

Hotspawn has been fortunate enough to partner with some truly great companies to help reward those you give during our Extra Life stream. Anda Seat, Audio-Technica, GFuel and Station Cold Brew Coffee have all donated amazing products for us to give away to some randomly drawn donators.
