Extra Life 2016
Another year another Extra Life campaign, another year supporting the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Extra Life comprises thousands of players from around the world receiving donations at any time, but dedicating one day (usually the end of October/beginning of November) to sit and play games for 24 hours. This does not have to be video games, but can be board games, card games, made up games, and really any type of game. Some people may do this alone or with a big team, just like some may do it offline while others will stream.
Extra Life unites thousands of players around the world in a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $22 million for local CMN Hospitals.
I will be running the stream again this year with my coworkers for the 24 hour event (25 because of the clock change), where we will be locking ourselves inside the office doing multiple activities. This will be my third year actively participating in Extra Life and my third year with the team. We will be having giveaways of free digital games, and anything else we may come up with for game day.
I will also be doing a 24 hour stream on October 22nd at 5PM EST to kind of prepare and maybe pick up a few donations as well. I will also browse through my keys and see about doing some giveaways during my own 24 hour event.
If you would like to learn more you can head on over to the Extra-Life website where you can view all the details or register if this is something you are interested in yourself. If you would like to make a donation to my campaign feel free to donate here or by pressing the buttons at the top/bottom of the page.
I will be streaming on 4 different platforms (or more) to reach a wider audience and have more people to interact with. These are the main 4 and I will update the list if I add more.
There are a few challenges going on throughout our team:
Dana – If she reaches her $500 goal she will do the one chip challenge. (Carolina Reaper Madness) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFWbbyYE6Wc
Carrie – For every $1 she will do 1 Sit-up/Push-up.
For $10 she will do a round of Slender (She is terrified of it)
Allen, Boris, Jon, Kyle, Raf, Sean – Will do 1 strip of wax on the leg for a $20 donation.
If we get enough viewers/willing to enter !6 in chat on Beam and Twitch (buttons to channel can be located above and below this post) we will do free Steam/uPlay giveaways for not as premium games (or older ones)
If we get enough people interested we will do raffles for $5 per entry to raffle off more premium games (ex: mad max)
