On November 11-12, 2017 one single Extra Life team raised over $1.2 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Rooster Teeth, a youth media company that develops online creators and produces multi-platform entertainment experiences, has a massive global footprint of more than 35 million subscribers to its YouTube Network, 5 million unique monthly visitors to its hub, and 2 million registered community members.

Since 2010, Rooster Teeth has enlisted nearly 11,000 of their community members into the Extra Life community, and together, have raised an cumulative total of $3.5 million for 155 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Their 2017 Extra Life event provided the entertainment the media company is known for, by broadcasting its fundraising event and engaging in creative ways of raising funds, providing incentives and asking viewers to donate for the kids – reaching their highest total raised during a single event yet – $1.2 million.

Rooster Teeth recently pledged to raise an addition $3 million for Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, TX to help pay for a new mental health wing for kids. The Rooster Teeth Healing Garden at the facility will provide a place for kids to play, relax and recharge.
