  1. Ryan, Why don't we do a virtual meeting? Would a later time work? Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  2. No change over the past few days which is why I didn't post, but did see an increase today:
  3. I'm not familiar enough with Milwaukee to suggest anything but I can definitely make this one! Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  4. Hey @Ultshld340! Welcome aboard! The great thing about Extra Life is that you don't have to stream or "show your work"; you just need to agree to put your passion for gaming to use #ForTheKids The first step is to set up your fundraising page at www.extra-life.org Once you've done that, you can customize your page and even your fundraising URL in your Dashboard. For example, I have mine set to www.extra-life.org/participant/NovusOlm You then share that page link on social media, emails to friends/family, etc, to get donations. Everything is automatic and goes to the hospital so you don't have to handle the funds. It's as easy as that!
  5. In this topic I'll be posting a daily recap of where we are in terms of participants versus dollars. This will transition to a weekly format once we have a better understanding of the trends/day-to-day. I'll be posting all 3 CMN hospital reports, as we essentially cover the entire state being the only guild. April Reports: Wednesday, April 5th, 2017 (As of 10pm CST)
  6. Name: Joshua Easton Alias: Novus'Olm Years participating: This will be Year 7 I started participating in Extra Life 7 years ago when I was playing Rift, an mmorpg by Trion Worlds. They were holding an in-game Extra Life event and to be entirely honest I signed up because of the free loot. I raised about 75 dollars my first year and thought I was a god. Little did I know that this would turn into a passion for me, and I'd be breaking 1,000 a few years later. In my time with Extra Life, I've been completely changed by the stories of the families that we help and by interacting with fellow Extra Lifers. I've gained precious friendships, connections, and experience on this crazy journey and I don't plan on stopping any time soon. Ive served as a Support Rep, Street Team Leader, Guild President of Orlando, FL, and most recently this year as one of Tori's Angels. This program had changed my life in so many ways and the kids and their families are a constant source of inspiration to me. My name is Joshua, and I Extra Life #ForTheKids . What's your why?
  7. Why do you #ExtraLife? At Extra Life United and Momentum this year, one of the questions posed to the audience at the medal ceremony was "What's your why?" We all have our reasons for starting on this journey of saving lives through the power of play, but where and when did it start for you? More importantly, why? In a paragraph or two, explain why you participate in Extra Life! Feel free to attach images, video clips, etc.
  8. @MajorLinux I found it now, Gmail had spammed it. Thanks!
  9. Hey @MedievalMelody! Sometimes, DonorDrive glitches. I've had it happen to me for a few years now regarding the donation alerts; and it's an easy fix. Hover over your name on the main site, and go to Settings. Scroll past the social media stuff, and you'll see the options for Text and Email alerts. Make sure both (or one if you like) are checked. Hope this helps!
  10. Hi, @Kome! While I'm having trouble finding the exact dollar amount at the moment, it was confirmed at ELU that we raised over $9.6 million #ForTheKids in 2016! This puts us at over $30 million raised since inception.
  11. I can attest that @Hannie731 is certifiably awesome. 10/10 would recommend again.
  12. I think that the 4/18 or 4/23 dates would work best. Tuesdays and Thursdays are my days off, so I could definitely make the trip in person one of those two days. Otherwise, I'd be virtual. I don't get done with work until 6:30 on Sundays, so that is a factor.
  13. In order to better organize our efforts as a Guild, below is a roster of active members. To maintain active membership within the guild, you simply need to contribute to at least one guild activity within a 60 day window. Examples of "guild activity" are: Visiting the forums and partaking in discussion Attending a guild meeting (includes virtual attendance) Attending a recruitment event Posting a recruitment report from your own event (Friday Night Magic, Etc) By no means is this meant to single people out or isolate them, but rather to keep track of where we are as a Guild. We understand that everyone has a different level of time available to commit to the Guild's efforts, but we do need to hold members accountable as outlined in the Guild Handbook and Expectations. (Please note this list is incomplete while I gather names and handles since I don't know everyone yet!) MKE/MAD Extra Life Guild Roster Updated 04/03/2017 10:00pm CDT Guild Leadership: Ryan Nelson @nelsrm21 - Guild President Joshua Easton @Novus'Olm - Regional Support (Fox Valley) Ana Olsen @AOlsen - Special Events Coordinator, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin MKE Guild Members: Jeremy Lecus @BrewCityGamer Jason o'Brien @obrien Greg Reynolds @Sgoast (Tori's Angels Guild Mod - Midwest) Your name here
  14. Ryan, if possible I would recommend moving the meeting to Tuesday due to the Easter holiday as Jeremy stated.
  15. Hey folks! I'll have a small for-fun tournament running on Thursday night during Open Play for anyone interested in trying out the Nintendo Switch with the game 1-2-Switch. Each Team Battle can support up to 20 players, and I'll have 2 confirmed consoles running. If you'd like to add your console to the mix, feel free! RSVP at the link here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/elu-2017-1-2-switch-free-play-tickets-33034870186?aff=ELUSwitch I'll keep it running as long as there's interest, near the Extra Life Info Table and Free Tabletop Play area. Cheers! -Joshua / Novus
