  1. I am a team captain in the Denver area who is looking to recruit for an Extra Life team. I want to plan out the game day so that we can meet up somewhere and play, but I would also welcome anyone who wants to do their own game day event but wants to be part of a team. Here is the team page 5280 Geeks.

We'll chat about upcoming fun things and take any feedback you have to make this a stellar year! Info is below: Phone number: 1-888-740-4219 Passcode: 5408637# Talk soon!
  5. 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

    Come one, come all - we've solidified a sweet spot to celebrate Extra Life Game Day 2016! Please join us... Saturday, November 5, 2016 1:00pm - 5:00pm Player Haven Game Lounge Player Haven (3355 S Yarrow St, Unit e133, Lakewood, CO 80227) is set up with all types of gaming options: console games, PC games, board games, current and classic video games... the list goes on and on! We are so thrilled to work with them for our special event, and we're hoping to pack the house for our time there. This is our chance to come together and show the community what Extra Life is all about and why it's important to us as a local fundraising program. We'd love to have some patient kiddos represent at this event - but the only way to do that is to have you all commit some of your time to show up and celebrate with us! Here's the Player Haven site if you're interested in finding out more about them. Details to come on day-of fundraising at the venue, etc. http://www.playerhavengames.com/ In the meantime, keep recruiting and fundraising like the rock stars you are, and I hope to see you all on November 5th! Thank you for all the work you do For The Kids!

Looking forward to seeing all of you! Kacie
  9. Denver Comic Con!

    Hey Gamers! The idea of this topic is to make sure we have a consistent landing space for all of the discussions around the Denver Comic Con volunteer opportunities. We have a few of our Guild members getting together later today to talk over details - so I won't say anything that I'm not for certain about yet - but I know we need volunteers to work the table and possibly some after-party-type events (no promises, but that's the way I suck you in. ) Because really... this is a win/win opportunity for you to hang out at Comic Con and talk about all the good you're doing for Children's Hospital Colorado. So cool! Keep an eye out on this page for updates and details, but we'd LOVE to have the problem of too many willing volunteers!
  10. Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown 2016

    Hello Denver! We have an upcoming opportunity to have a table at the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown 2016. Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown Here is what we are looking for: - Times - June 10-12 (Friday 11am - 10pm, Saturday 10am - midnight, Sunday 10am - 5pm) We also have some bonus hours that you are welcome to attend (9am - 10am Saturday and Sunday) and a VIP event Friday night (not open to the public) from 10pm - 1am. We would love to have a presence their supporting this very cool event. It would be great to have a group of volunteers there to talk about Extra Life during the day(s), taking sign-ups for Extra Life and have an opportunity to check out the event. Let me know if you are interested!
  11. Hey everybody! First of all, happy Star Wars day: May the fourth be with you! Truth be told, I've only seen the first one (or I guess the third one in the sequence, from what I've been told), but it was just as iconic as everyone said it would be. I hear Luke and princess Leia are related? Gross. Secondly, I want to make sure you all have some constant connection with the cause, whether that's visiting the hospital, knowing the stories of our Champion kiddos, or sharing some cool videogame-related hospital news. This article came out on Monday describing the exciting new ways scientists and docs are partnering to test for tuberculosis: http://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/05/02/473557723/can-an-online-game-help-create-a-better-test-for-tb It's a great read that explains the whole concept, but basically they are making the tests for tuberculosis into games and puzzles to help diagnoses and treatments. If you have a few minutes, check out the game site: http://www.eternagame.org/web/ MIND. BLOWN. #science Third: Some of you may have already seen this floating around, but in case you haven't - Bee the Swarm is donating to Extra Life through a little friendly competition! If you're into high scores and winning donations (who isn't?!), check out the attached picture of all the details. Fourth (we have to have 4 things on May the 4th!) - If you love all things Extra Life and would like to be a part of our Denver Guild leadership team, please email me at kthomas@childrenscoloradofoundation.org. We have some really exciting opportunities coming up, but I want to make sure we have some strong folks at the helm of our Denver ship along with a group of motivated participants! Fifth: Check out the last post in the Denver page (below) to learn about a cool partnership we want to set up with the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown! Seriously, that's awesome. Everyone should want to do this. That's all I got for now - email or reply here with any additions or questions. "Do or do not. There is no try." DO go play games and spread the word about Extra Life. (deep, right?) Kacie
  12. Hi y'all! For those of you who were able to make it to the kickoff, THANK YOU for coming out and brainstorming ideas for Extra Life in Denver for 2016 and playing games with Anissa and her family! It meant so much to them that they can come be a part of something with which they truly have a connection and interest. We talked about a lot of things that we could implement this year, but I think our most pertinent consensus was that Extra Life needs to be a bigger deal in this market. That means the recruitment, involvement, participation, awareness, and dedication has to be improved. Denver has such amazing potential as one of the biggest gaming communities in the country, and we want to take advantage of that! So! Here are some upcoming events that we should start talking about in terms of getting Extra Life represented: Colorado Rocket League Championship Tournament: April 10 http://clutcharena.com/denver-rocket-league-tournament/ Anime Southwest: April 29 - May 1 http://sukoshicon.com/wordpress/ Cheyenne Comic Con: May 13-15 http://www.cheyennecomiccon.com/ Denver Comic Con (we may have a booth for this, so please let me know if you're interested and available to help work it!): June 17-19 http://denvercomiccon.com/ Fort Collins Comic Con: August 26-28 https://fococomiccon.com/ Colorado Springs Comic Con: (also) August 26-28 http://www.cscomiccon.com/ I would love to support anyone who is willing and able to attend any of these events to represent Extra Life with materials. Please let me know if you are interested in helping with any of these events by emailing me at kthomas@childrenscoloradofoundation.org. The deadline to sign up for Denver Comic Con assistance is Wednesday, March 30th. Recurring Events: Smash Bros Night: Tuesday nights, 7pm, Clutch Gaming Arena http://clutcharena.com/ League of Legends Team Building Meetup: Wednesday nights, 6pm, Clutch Gaming Arena https://calendar.google.com/calendar/render?eid=NW1mcWFxOXBiOGp1M2RmbmJrZnJpdG03ZXNfMjAxNjAzMTBUMDEwMDAwWiBqdXN0aW5AY2x1dGNoYXJlbmEuY29t&ctz=America/Denver&sf=true&output=xml#eventpage_6 Conclave of Gamers events: Daily http://cog16.sched.org/ Opportunities: Game nights with patients and families at Children's Hospital Colorado Teen Zone Monthly meetups - bowling, laser tag, etc? Partnerships: Gamer's Haven Game Stop Used game shops Wizard's Chest Pepsi Center Celebrities/Sports Icons These opportunities are just ideas to start with - if you have a connection with any game shops, sports teams, etc. - USE THEM. This is your chance to spread the word! We'll start with that, I know that's already plenty of information. Please let me know if you're able to attend any of these events to represent Extra Life. In the meantime, get your friends on board, start some connections, and let's get gaming!
