  1. Drum roll please....we're offer more opportunities in 2018 for YOU to get involved and share your talents to further grow our ATL Extra Life program. To top it off we're hoping to host an inaugural game day event in ATL this fall. To do this, we've created a few more guild committee positions----which greatly lessens the responsibilities per committee member, but ultimately boosts our extra life community and the kids we support! Lou, Liz, Mike, and the amazing Extra Life team at CMNH are also rolling out a few new national leadership structures in spring that we'll merge into our 2018 committee plan as well----making a more awesome---AND manageable--- way for more people to get involved in Extra Life without getting overwhelmed. The best part about this is: we have the opportunity to make it our own and create a committee that best serves the needs and interests of our ATL Extra Life community! This means if you're not 100% sold on all the aspects of one of the roles listed problem! Share your interests in the application---and once we see where everyone's interests are, we'll adjust the outline below to best fit our community. Each of the positions in the attachment below are open and ready to be filled. We just need YOU to take a few minutes to complete the application below and email it to by Sunday, February 18 (NEW DATE!). The committee position descriptions are listed on page 2 and 3 of the attached 2018 committee document. Both of the docs below are also available on google docs. Please reach out to me via or 404.785.7366 with any questions. I'm looking forward to another incredible year with the Extra Life Atlanta community---and making an even bigger impact on our kids at Children's!

  2. Reaching Your Goals

    For those still trying to hit your goal...and for those who already have....check out these suggestions from a few Extra Life supporters across the country! From @allthewayj "having people donate and i’ll wrap their presents" From @mosersaurus I’m going to do one last push and pledge to rock a mullet if I hit $5000 by the end of the year. I sent out a thank you email to all of my donors on Thanksgiving day just letting them know how awesome they are and the difference they are making with their support” From @Snow_White_Raven “I am going through right now and thanking every person that is supporting our hospital on their game page and getting them the info to connect with our guild.” From @FoxRacingGurl “When people are asking what to get me for Christmas, I asked for donation to my extra life account instead. Also some holiday parties choose to donate to a charity instead of bringing unwrapped toys or gifts for one another. So maybe reach out to some of the hosts of parties to see if they would be willing to make Extra Life their charity of choice.”

  10. Fragforce's Second Annual Arcade Night was a hit! Thanks to the generosity, Banyan Street Capital, they were able to use the building's conference room for the arcade night. Guests brought food to share and they mixed things up with drinks and milkshakes. They had over 30 attendees, raised over $400, and had fun doing it. Gamers from Salesforce, Year Up, and friends came together to have fun and help the kids through games ranging from Jeopardy, to Rock Band, and Smash Brothers, to Evolution.....all #FTK. Thank you #Fragforce for coordinating this fun night for your employees and continuing to support our local miracles.
