Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Fresno Guild! We're excited to launch your guild in April and cannot wait to meet you all and work with you as we grow the Extra Life program and help the kids we serve! Introduce yourself and let's all get to know each other!

My name is Liz Aponte and I work on the Extra Life team. Myself, and along with our Tori's Angels Guild moderators, are available to help with any Guild related questions you have. I hope to see you in April for the Guild Launch!

My name is Tasha and I have been participating in Extra Life 24 hour streaming events for Valley Children's hospital for the past 3 years. I have lived in Fresno my entire life and fundraising & playing for our local children's hospital has been very rewarding, I am excited to see Fresno is going to have a guild! I would love to attend the guild launch meeting but unfortunately I will be unable to attend on that date & time. Hopefully, I can attend future guild meetings! I would love to learn more and be more involved.

It was great meeting everyone tonight. I'm ecstatic that we have an opportunity to prove that the Central Valley can make a positive impact on the world, more importantly, the kids!

Hello, I am Lyell and this will be my fourth year participating in extra life.

 

I started in Washington, though when I moved to California a few years ago I jumped on the opportunity to share this amazing organization with new people.

 

I look forward to helping the Fresno guild compete with the larger cities, and help the children.

Hello all,

 

My name is Manuel Vejar but you will see my alias most of the time which is Breathinglions. I stream on twitch and enjoy games such as PUBG, Dead By Daylight, H1Z1, GTAV, Rimworld, and many others. I have spent four years active duty navy from 2009 to 2013. I have been to England, Spain, Italy, The Vatican, Bahrain, Dubai, and France. I have conducted multiple humanitarian and operational missions including Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation New Dawn, and Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am now in the Naval Reserves in Lemoore and am a part of the Junior Enlisted Association (VP of the Social Committee). I am also ASST. Director of our Sponsorship program. I want to help out as much as I can physically do so as I am personally committed to helping others and especially children. I hope the enthusiasm and creativity of this group will seed others to join and become a part of something bigger than themselves! Thanks for all that you do!

Hey everyone!

 

My name is Josh McIllwain, and I've been organizing Extra Life at the Crazy Squirrel Game Store every year for the last 3 years. We've been able to collect over $6,000 combined over the last few years, and I'm really excited about seeing us grow in Fresno.

 

I wish I could've made it to the meeting last night, but I had other obligations. I am interested in applying for a leadership position - @ForTheKids, would you mind letting me know what you need from me in order to apply?

 

Thanks!

I keep putting off my own introduction to you guys since the first meeting. 

 

Hi everyone, I am Elizabeth. 
I am known as KistyNocturn on Twitch. I have been participating in Extra Life since 2013 and helped a friend with his stream for Extra Life back in 2012. I like to stream video games ranging from FPS, RTS, to simulator games, and the occasional RPG game. I work a very tight schedule at my day job, which is a customer service experience specialist, so getting free time can be difficult unless planned well in advance, but I will try to help out when ever possible. 

 

I am an expert when it comes to OBS Studio a streaming software so please feel free to ask me questions, if you need help setting it up prior to game day November 4th please, please, don't hesitate to ask for my assistance. I am hoping I can do at least a demo of how to set up OBS Studio which is a free program that allows you to stream game play from PC and Consoles (consoles require capture card with OBS) just in case anyone is interested in that. 

 

I have a background in Graphic Communication and Digital Video Production so feel free to tap my mountain of knowledge I am more than willing to share it. I am also very nerdy so feel free to talk to me about anything from movies, animation, to video games.

Hey, I'm Jennifer from Crazy Squirrel Game Store where we've run marathon events for the past few years (thanks to the organization of Josh McIllwain). We're up to it again this year and we're starting our campaign for donations and participation.

Here's looking forward to another good year.
