  2. With Extra Life Game Day right around the corner…what better way to support our kids than through a cape! Children's Healthcare of Atlanta's annual tradition of Cape Day is back on Friday, October 20. While some superheroes battle scary villains, at Children’s, our superheroes fight something much scarier—illnesses and injuries that many of us could never imagine. But when they wear a cape, nothing is impossible. Please join us as we celebrate all of our superhero patients by wearing a cape during streams and gaming events on October 20 using #CapeDayATL. Capes supporting Extra Life: $15 Order: Email beth.agee@choa.org by October 10 with quantity and preferred shipping address With your capes, let your followers know that you’re gaming..#ForTheKids at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Invite employees or coworkers to wear a cape and jeans on Cape Day with a $5 donation to your Extra Life page.

  5. 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.

  8. Hi Extra Life Team, I work with a lot of clients (both gaming and non-gaming). This year I've seen a lot of non-gaming brands join the scene through either direct sponsorship (Gillette, DirecTV), or direct involvement (GEICO Gaming). I have non-gaming contacts who would like to join the scene through a philanthropic approach. Sample idea 1: Brand X promotes their product on a streamer's page. For every lead generated, the brand would donate a portion to the streamer and a portion to the charity. Sample idea 2: Brand X does a straight donation and "buys" screen time on a stream/team. Sample idea 3: ??? Is this allowed? Is there a list of "top stream teams" that can be asked? Who would I need to talk to regarding business development? Peter
