Extra Life is an annual charity event in which people play games live to raise money for children in children's hospitals, which Stephen and Mallory have participated in since 2012 to raise money for their local children's hospital, McLeod Children's Hospital in Florence, SC.
Though they started out by streaming Earthbound in 2012 and 2013 with no donation structure, since 2014 their streams have been structured such that viewers can donate to see a game from a certain system be played, such that the game with the highest donation total will be played next. Each game gets played for 30 to 45 minutes, after which the next game is played.
As of Extra Life 2017, they have raised $60,313 for their local children's hospital.
