Support our Extra Life Raptr team!

Raptr believes in the power of gamers as a force for good. And so we’re inviting you to join us in supporting Extra Life, as a donor or a member of the Raptr team!

To support the cause, we’ve set a team donation goal of $5,000. We will hold a four-day Twitch streaming event starting on Wednesday, October 30. We will play for 25 hours, split across the days and times below:

Wednesday, October 30: 10AM-4PM PT
Thursday, October 31: 10AM-4PM PT
Friday, November 1: 10AM-4PM PT
Saturday, November 2: 10AM-5PM PT

You can watch all the action on our Raptr Twitch channel, where you’ll have a chance to join Raptr staffers and special guests in-game. We’ll give away free PC, PS3, and 360 games, in-game items, and Raptr gear to stream viewers as well as prize packs to participants. We’re still rounding up prizes so we’ll be sure to let you know what goodies you can earn!

Raptr Random Giveaway: Minecraft!
Have you come across Notch’s Pickaxe in your travels of the land of Tamriel? Or perhaps you’ve laid waste to exploding creepers in Pandora?

Well, if you’re one of the last holdouts to explore Minecraft’s DIY playground, now’s your chance to score your very own copy for free!

Find out how you can win Minecraft (XBLA) in this post here.
