  1. Introductions! Stop by and say hello!

    Great to meet you Nate! Thanks for reaching out!
  2. Introductions! Stop by and say hello!

    Thanks Alex! Great to meet you! If you get a chance, make sure to check out our monthly guild meetings. They are held typically on the first Thursday of the month, but we will be soon gathering information to determine which day of the week works best for guild members. Check back here often, and we should have something posted soon! Again, great to meet you, and we look forward to having you join us in our efforts.
  3. Greetings everyone! I am Extra Life Omaha Guild Vice President Joseph Morris. After looking through our forum, I noticed that we did not have a location for new members to post a greeting to other members. I have created a space for us to introduce ourselves, and to give a little information about ourselves. I have been a member of Extra Life for 3 years now, and this is going on my fourth year. My daughter has been to Children's Hospital & Medical Center quite a number of times now, and her longest stay was a week, which was extremely taxing for myself and my wife. Since discovering Extra Life and more recently the Extra Life Omaha Guild, I have been pursuing ways to increase visibility of the guild, Extra Life, and the benefits that we bring to Children's Hospital & Medical Center here in Omaha. I play mostly on PC, starting with World of Warcraft for almost a decade now, and have expanded to other games such as Rocket League, PUBG, Heroes of the Storm, and various others that I stream on our Twitch channel. I am hoping to get some free time soon so that I can start streaming some tabletop gaming from The Game Shoppe, or any of the other board/tabletop game stores around town. We are hoping to bring new members to exciting places for our upcoming guild meetings, and providing everyone with opportunities to help our guild grow. Please take some time to introduce yourself to the guild, and talk about what games you play, and what brought you to Extra Life! I hope that we can discover new games together, and new ways to share Extra Life with people who have not yet heard of what we do!
  4. Tune In for Kids!

    Guild members and friends! We have been asked by Children's Hospital to provide volunteers for this event: We are preparing for the 2017 Tune In For Kids mediathon with KAT 103.7 and WOWT/Channel 6! This event benefits Children’s Hospital & Medical Center (via Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals), and takes place August 24-25. The event is held live in the lobby at Children’s in Omaha, at 8200 Dodge Street. During the event, DJs interview area patient families about their experiences at Children’s and listeners call in to donate to the hospital. Tune In For Kids is one of the largest annual fundraising events for Children’s and last year it raised over $305,000. Children's Foundation is inviting folks from all over the community to volunteer on the phone bank, during the event, to answer incoming calls from listeners who want to donate to the hospital. Volunteers take down contact and credit card information. Scripts, snacks, beverages and a brief training are provided. If you are interested in volunteering or have a group that would like to help out please let us know ASAP and we will reserve your spots (keep in mind kiddos must be 15 or older). Tune In is a great way to meet some more of our patient families in person. Available phone bank spots – Friday, August 25: 3 – 7 pm (8 volunteer phone available) A brief training will take place 15 minutes prior to each shift. Please RSVP via the calendar event here: Tune-In for Kids
