Studio Wildcard Aims to Raise Even More Money this Year for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Seattle, WA – November 5, 2016 – Studio Wildcard invites Survivors and non-Survivors alike to join its annual 24-hour Extra Life charity drive on Twitch (www.twitch.tv/survivetheark) to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals starting at 9 am PDT / 5 pm CET today, Saturday, November 5.

Last year the ARK: Survival Evolved community raised an outstanding $23,500 in 24 hours (the goal was only $5k!), and this year we’re stretching it higher to $25,000. Help us hit the target by donating before or during the stream, or by joining our Extra Life tribe HERE at www.extra-life.org to help raise funds with your friends and family! In addition to prizes and giveaways, anyone who donates during the ARK Extra Life 2016 stream will receive a special badge award for your profile on survivetheark.com!

The Studio Wildcard stream will be hosted by the lovely ForestF1re and x3Bellex3 who plan on raising the stakes with more dino insanity, mayhem and fun! They’ll be hosting live Q&As with members of the dev team, conducting giveaways, playing an assortment of IRL and ARK games (“Dodo Toss,” “ARKchery,” “Phiomia Races,” “Mounted Relay,” and more), and hanging out with fellow content creators on a private server. Keep your eye out for sneak peeks of upcoming ARK content and maybe even some long-sought answers to Survivors’ favorite questions if we reach our goals!

Then on Saturday, November 5, 2016, pick up your pickaxe, torch, hatchet and begin that 24-hour ARK marathon on your own or by joining us on our server! Not enough stamina saved up for a full 24 hours? No worries! Any length of streaming you do enables others to watch and participate with donations for the kids.
