  2. Hey all, I recently build a small app for pushing Extra Life notifications into my work slack and discord servers. Check it out here: https://github.com/bperreault-va/extra-life-notifier It polls DonorDrive every 60 seconds for changes and pushes messages to your servers' webhook urls whenever someone on your team received a donation, or when your team gets a new member. Overall I think it's pretty easy to use but as a developer I know I'm biased Let me know what you think!
  3. Hey Josh, I'm not sure if you'll see this but I recently made a small application just for this! I've got it set up to send notifications to Slack and Discord servers. Take a look and let me know if you need help getting it running. https://github.com/bperreault-va/extra-life-notifier
  4. The year is 1347. A strange, creeping illness has been sweeping throughout Europe, leaving a trail of corpses in its wake. Corpses that have begun to rise again in shambling processions. In an almshouse on the fringe of society, a group of people living with disabilities, blindness, deafness, mobility impairments, and more, make the decision to survive against the tide of death. Survival of the Able is a tabletop roleplaying game created by Accessible Games, a company staffed almost entirely by individuals living with disabilities or otherwise marginalized people. Headed by Jacob Wood, a blind game designer, Survival of the Able was born out of the desire to tell a story about people living with a variety of disabilities in a time when such conditions were viewed as rendering people useless. To some extent, a lot of the prejudices and beliefs about those with disabilities persist even centuries later. To help challenge those perspectives, Wood and his team created a tabletop experience unlike any other. In the setting of Survival of the Able, players will have to overcome the challenges presented by the disease, the wandering undead, harsh weather conditions, and the discriminatory attitudes of those around you. To top it off, the absence of accessibility technology or accommodations means that the deaf won't have sign language, the blind won't have braille, and those who aren't able to stand won't have wheelchairs. This will force characters to figure out other ways to survive in a setting so full of death. Players will be armed with the knowledge a character in 1347 might have - they won't be able to readily identify the symptoms or effects of the Black Plague, meaning that the disease could prove even deadlier than the zombies. Survival of the Able is based on the Fudge System to encourage roleplaying and eliminate the need for typical attributes that exist in many RPGs. Instead, the underlying system allows the developers to present a sliding scale to represent how those with disabilities often have differing degrees of ability. The reason for this is that Survival of the Able isn't supposed to be a story about strong heroes accomplishing incredible feats - just a story about average people who want to live. If all of this sounds intriguing, you can actually play a beta version of the game for free by downloading it directly from the publisher's website. If you enjoy the game or simply want to support the project, the team has launched a Kickstarter to raise $8,000 that will be used to create art, edit the beta version, and organize the book into an easily understood layout. The team has also presented stretch goals that include being able to better compensate the team, creating an audiobook version of the game, and penning additional settings for Survival of the Able that include the likes of 1980s USA during the AIDs epidemic. There aren't really any other tabletop games quite like Survival of the Able, so check it out if you have the time! Maybe even give the beta a whirl on Game Day?

  6. Hello @alautz! If you haven't already I would checkout the ToolKits page in your Extra Life donations page account. https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1308 Else join the Office Extra Life Discord if you haven't already for the more live variety of responses. https://discord.gg/extralife4kids Above and beyond all that. Create a Team and encourage them to join you. Or have them create a Team to bring their peeps together. Theres no one way to do it. Its really what you and they want/can do together. Hopefully this is helpful. o/
  7. Heya @Alex Quaintance! Check out my reply in a thread right next to yours. Same resource contacts would be advised for your query as well. Namely in the finding out and talking with your Childrens Miracle Network Hospital and getting the right actionable deets! o/
  8. Heya @jabens89! First be super absolutely careful about using the "R" word. A.k.a. "Raffle". It can have severe financial, gambling, and gaming consequences depending on the laws of your state. See my handy dandy post on it some years ago. https://community.extra-life.org/forums/topic/1793-use-caution-with-the-word-raffle-in-your-fundraising-efforts/?tab=comments#comment-8686 As far as business charitable giving tax receipts go your best is if you know who the local Childrens Miracle Network Hospital in your area is. And/or the Extra Life/Childrens Miracle Network Foundation Liaison is. If not the latter part you can definitely call that hospital and ask for whom that person is is going to be your best bet. If these details are not known the following link should help you get to that hospital/foundation erson. https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1111 Worst case there is emailing support@extra-life.org but chances should be pretty good your find your answer(s) from navigating the above link then the support email As we approach gameday their ability to respond as quickly as other times of the year is most definitely/understandably affected.

  10. Has anyone come up with a way for a credits roll during the ending screen after a stream for everyone who donated to Extra Life? Just an extra way of saying thank you during the conclusion. Thanks!
  11. Hideki Kamiya, the director of Clover Studio's Okami, has tweeted indicating that the beloved action-adventure title will be receiving a sequel. The hints of a sequel in the works came in the form of several tweets between Kamiya and Ikumi Nakamura, the creative director formerly employed at Tango Gameworks. Nakamura has been touring a number of prominent game studios around the world with her latest stop being PlatinumGames where Kamiya now works. There are those on the internet, however, that remain skeptical. Kamiya has a history of playing with fan expectations on Twitter. The director, who know works as a game designer at PlatinumGames, teased impatient fans of Scalebound back in 2015 by routinely telling them that new screenshots would be released next week. Each week, the elusive screenshots were pushed back another week and never emerged. His account even puts forward rules for followers and fans. Those who violate his Twitter rules find themselves quickly blocked. However, the announcement was made alongside Ghostwire Tokyo's former creative director, Ikumi Nakamura. Nakamura posted a video to Twitter earlier today in which Kamiya said with a smile and a thumbs up that "Okami is going to come back." Nakamura looks surprised and asks, "Really?" "Really," Kamiya responds, before laughing. The cheeky announcement might well be a joke, but Nakamura seems to sincerely want Okami 2 to become a reality. She worked at Clover Studio as a concept artist alongside Kamiya on the original Bayonetta. While Kamiya is one to pull a joke on fans, Nakamura's sincerity and energy has made her a popular developer in the game industry, even after her departure from the recently announced Ghostwire Tokyo. Nakamura followed up her video with Kamiya by saying, "Okami is going to be back. We want to make Okami sequel and fans are looking forward to it too. You guys want to see Kamiya’s Okami again, right, everyone? I want to work on it too!” While this is all very exciting to hear, Capcom has confirmed to outlets like Polygon that it hasn't made any official announcements. However, the love for Okami runs deep. The game originally released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2 before transitioning over to the Wii via a port in 2008. In 2010, a Nintendo DS sequel released called Okamiden. 2012 saw an HD remaster release on the PlayStation 3. A five year lull followed without much in the way of Okami happening before a surprise port of the PlayStation 3 remaster appeared on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017. A year later, the remaster appeared on Nintendo Switch. Capcom sits on a game franchise that has become known as one of the greatest artistic achievements in gaming. The reaction to this strange, small tweet (regardless of whether it's a joke or not) speaks to how eager fans are for more Okami. With a new console generation coming up and the recent ports selling well, there might very well be another Okami in the works at this moment or in the near future - and that's very exciting. Kamiya capped all of this off by tweeting: “Okami will be back,” he wrote. “... Someday ... I believe.” Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games! View full article

  13. Hey Fellow Humans from The Treasure Valley, Lets touch base with each other. Swap tips, stories, team up, make some connections and see what we can do better together than individually. I have been participating in Extra-Life for 5 years now and I don't mind helping people get set up their first time, or even trade tips/tricks for getting through game days. I know I am proud of even the small contributions I have been able to make to St. Luke's Children's Hospital and would love for others to be able to do the same. You can join my team or other teams it doesn't matter to me, but I do want to make sure this goes as smoothly as it can for everyone involved. Heck if enough people show interest I might even get us together in real life at some point if people wanted to. Introduce yourself What is your Why? How long have you bee Extra-Lifeing? What would make it easier for you? I am John Osborne. I Extra-Life because I have my own kiddo who is super active and does crazy kid stuff. If anything was to ever happen to him, I would want the best pediatric care available to him in our own home town so we don't have to go to Seattle or Salt Lake. Our St. Lukes team does a fantastic job at giving kids an environment that is built around the specific health needs of kids and their families. We even got to go to the ER not too long ago when my son split his lip open and we needed to get stitches to repair the lip. Having staff trained on how to help handle him and explain to family what needs to be done, even in this minor situation was helpful to him and to us as parents. I have been streaming gaming marathons for 5 years now. I have used a few different setups and let me say everything has come a long way in the past 5 years. For me everything gets easier when I know I'm not the only one. Lets sound off to see how many of us are raising money #ForTheKids.
  14. Tomorrow marks the beginning of Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX) weekend. This will be the fifth year the show has been put on and Extra Life is happy to be a part of the event. You will be able to see us from our traditional booth presence on the show floor as well as during various stretches of time on the EGLX main stage. The weekend will be highlighting a number of streamers and special guests from both the game industry and SickKids, the local Children's Miracle Network Hospital in Toronto. EGLX 2019 takes place from October 18-20 at the Metro Toronto Convention Center in Toronto. The event brings gamers from across Canada together to celebrate gaming. There are both casual and competitive tournaments, live shows, free play areas for casual, communal gaming, unique convention storefronts, as well as recently released and upcoming games from indie studios and AAA publishers. The list of confirmed guests includes the likes of Kinda Funny Games' Greg, Nick, and Andy, the creators of Death Battle, the team behind Game Attack, and Kris Wilson of Cyanide & Happiness. Extra Life will be appearing on the main stage throughout the event during 10 minute intervals that EGLX has been gracious enough to provide for us. We'll be talking about Extra Life's wider mission to help kids in Canada and the United States while also getting into more specifics about Toronto's own SickKids hospital. Keep your eyes peeled for a lengthier appearance on Sunday where Extra Life will be taking the stage for a full half-hour along with a Champion Child from SickKids. If you will be at the event in person, be sure to stop by and say hello at booth 311. We will have our own free play stations, host a rotation of special guests for attendees to interact and play with, and be giving away prizes sponsored by Arozzi Gaming Chairs, Dell, and more! The booth will be staffed by employees from SickKids, Extra Lifers, and maybe even one of the kids who has been helped by Extra Life donations. SickKids, also known as The Hospital for Sick Children, is one of the most research-oriented hospitals in Canada. It offers cutting-edge care, both specialized and general, for kids in the Toronto area and beyond. Their goal is to keep pushing the boundaries of care to make sure that every child receives comprehensive, safe, and effective care. To learn more or participate in raising money for SickKids through Extra Life, you can head over to: SKExtraLife.com.

  16. Heya @Dan Cleberg! I have also been curious about this particular functionality over the years. Closest I've come to understand it is its been good when my team would have special promos/giveaways that revolved around having a single donation page to track dontations toward whatever giveaway it was. Or maybe you signup someone who would other wise not be able to manage their own individual page like you signed up for. If my understanding is correct you'll probably want to email support@extra-life.org to "detach" them a smidge from your donations acct. And/or they may need to sign-up on their own after click on Join Your Team if you have Team Page going already. There are some DonorDrive peeps on these forums but I don't have their member names handy. Will update this post later and @mention them when I get home later today where I know I have this info. Let me know how you fair in the meantime sir! o/
  17. I signed myself up and then it gave me the option to save and sign others up it gave me the option to take care of the others I signed up account. I signed up a handful of others who wanted to join or team. How do I access their page, their info? How do I add their profile photo? How do they add funds or make a facebook fundraiser page? There seems to be no access to the people I signed up.
  18. Hi y'all, The Guild is Rebuilding and we need your help. Please connect with us on Facebook (Extra Life Austin) or Discord (ExtraLifeATX). For specific questions, you can email us at extralifeaustin@gmail.com Happy Gaming!!!!
  19. Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, a day for celebrating accomplishments and being thankful for the blessings of the past year. We wanted to take a minute to celebrate the amazing things the Extra Life community has helped accomplish across Canada in just the last month or so. It has been incredible watching Extra Life's partners and dedicated participants come together to raise awareness, shatter fundraising goals, and even help start entirely new hospitals. This year, we are thankful for all of you. Thank you! DreamHack Montreal - September 6-8 DreamHack Montreal kicked off an amazing month for Extra Life in Canada. The competitive gaming event brought together gamers from across all of Canada as well as a large number from the United States. The event was generous enough to provide Extra Life with two booth spaces, one for streamers to raise money for local hospitals and another to talk with attendees throughout the weekend. Streamers took shifts at the booth that varied between 4 -24 hours. Hospital Champion, Jean-Gilles, attended the final two days of DreamHack with his mom, playing new games, interviewing streamers, and chatting with Extra Lifers. In total, the amazing efforts of Extra Lifers at DreamHack Montreal were able to raise over $14,000 CND (over $10,000 USD) for local kids. Extra Life North - September 7-8 The same weekend as DreamHack Montreal, Extra Lifers from across central Canada descended upon Winnipeg to participate in Extra Life North, a weekend-long fundraiser to help the kids in the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba. Numerous organizations worked with local Extra Lifers to pull the event together, particularly Bold Commerce, Flocker, and RBC. The event was attended by several Miracle Children, local celebrities, and Canadian Olympians. In total, the event raised over $73,000 CND (over $50,000 USD) for the kids of Manitoba. First Patient Day at Jim Pattison Children's Hospital - September 29 Jim Pattison Children's Hospital opened its doors to the very first kids in need of treatment late last month. That tremendous occasion, which was made possible with the support of partners like Extra Life, marked the first time patients in the province had access to a dedicated maternal and children's hospital. The facility provides tailored care to the needs of babies, kids, and moms who come from across Saskatchewan for help. Hospitals can be scary for kids, so Jim Pattison Children's Hospital has been built to be as friendly and welcoming as possible to its youngest patients. We here at Extra Life are so proud to have been able to play a small part in making JPCH into a reality. Photos from the event were taken by Lisa Landrie - A Photogenic Life. Extra Life Ottawa Summit - October 5 Extra Life guild members in Ottawa were able to partner with their local Marriott Hotel to put together their own gaming event earlier this month! Extra Life Ottawa Summit created a free play area where attendees could enjoy both tabletop and video games while taking in the expansive views from the space the hotel was able to provide. Those who attended the event had a fantastic time gaming, networking, and taking in the event itself. There are currently plans in motion to grow the event for next year while working with the wonderful people at the Ottawa Marriott. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  21. Thanks @KnightHarbinger for the reply. I've spoken to our CMN Coordinator for us here and she mentioned underwriting the event as the best way, but to also check in with Extra Life. I will e-mail Extra Life support to see if they can provide me with the answers I need. Thanks again!
  22. Hello @lanavarro! If you know who the local Childrens Miracle Network Hospital in your area is. And/or the Extra Life/Childrens Miracle Network Foundation Liaison is. If not the latter part you can definitely call that hospital and ask for whom that person is is going to be your best bet. If these details are not known the following link should help you get to that hospital/foundation erson. https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1111 Worst case there is emailing support@extra-life.org but chances should be pretty good your find your answer(s) from navigating the above link then the support email As we approach gameday their ability to respond as quickly as other times of the year is most definitely/understandably affected. Let me know if this help you find that person! o/
  23. My team is utilizing a local college's community room for Extra Life National Game Day. There is a cost associated to the room so we have reached out to local businesses in hopes of having them pay for the usage of the facility. We believe underwriting the event is our best way of approaching this matter, but wanted to get clarification for purposes of receiving a tax deduction. Is this something that Extra Life has any knowledge on and how we can best approach it? Thank you.

  27. Join in the fun tomorrow as one of our most dedicated Extra Lifers kicks off a 12 hour charity marathon! Aureylian will be playing a variety of games (and even doing some live singing!) on her Twitch stream while working to raise $12,000 USD for the kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. There will be a number of incentives for fundraising including pies to the face, gift packages, and more! If you aren't aware, Aureylian has been participating in Extra Life for the past five years making use of her platform as a Twitch Ambassador to help kids in her local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. She regularly gives key note speeches at TwitchCon, Twitch's PAX events, appears prominently in Mindcrack events, and served as a co-host for MineCon Earth in 2018. Her streaming channel is best known for Minecraft and The Sims, but she also branches out into a variety of FPS games. She even played a part in Michelle Obama's Twitch stream that was held for #CollegeSigningDay alongside Ninja and Anne Munition! Over the past several years, Aureylian has raised over $47,000 USD for the kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. With her goal this year, she's hoping to reach or surpass the $60,000 USD mark. She boasts a following of over 150,000 on Twitch and just shy of 300,000 on YouTube. She has been one of our biggest supporters, earning her the title of Extra Life Ambassador for 2019. We are so proud to be able to work with such a positive force in the gaming community to build something amazing for children across the United States and Canada. If you are curious about what will be going down on the stream itself, a wide variety of activities are planned. The action will start off with a chill morning stream of the house renovation game House Flipper at 8am PT. Following that, get ready for some spooky fun at 10am PT with a playthrough of a Minecraft adventure set in an eerie realm. Speaking of realms, the latest expansion for The Sims, Realm of Magic, will be up at 12pm PT. Subnautica will be the core afternoon game from 2pm PT until 4pm PT. In the late afternoon and into the evening, Aureylian will be putting her voice to the test with two hours of Twitch Sings where donors will choose which songs she belts out live until 6pm PT. The last two hour segment of the stream will be either Green Hell Game or Resident Evil II depending on whether donors have reached the $5,000 USD incentive mark. There will be plenty of other things popping up on the stream on top of all of that, from guests to incentive breaks to giveaways. It's gonna be a great time! Finally, Aureylian's Twitch stream has been sponsored by MadeGood, a company that produces organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO snacks for kids in a facility free from the 8 common allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, sesame, fish and shellfish. At least one of the prizes being given away during her stream will consist of a MadeGood giveaway. One of the really neat things about this sponsorship is that during the month of October, MadeGood will be donating a portion of their Chocolate Chip Granola Mini Bar sales to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! These bars are limited and will only be sold during the month of October, so get 'em while they're hot from most major retailers or online through Amazon or MadeGood itself! If you have any questions about the product, be sure to reach out to MadeGood's social media presence on Twitter: @MadeGoodFoods. Be sure to tune in to Aureylian's Twitch stream any time tomorrow from 8am PT until 8pm PT. Hope we'll see you there!

  28. Join in the fun tomorrow as one of our most dedicated Extra Lifers kicks off a 12 hour charity marathon! Aureylian will be playing a variety of games (and even doing some live singing!) on her Twitch stream while working to raise $12,000 USD for the kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. There will be a number of incentives for fundraising including pies to the face, gift packages, and more! If you aren't aware, Aureylian has been participating in Extra Life for the past five years making use of her platform as a Twitch Ambassador to help kids in her local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. She regularly gives key note speeches at TwitchCon, Twitch's PAX events, appears prominently in Mindcrack events, and served as a co-host for MineCon Earth in 2018. Her streaming channel is best known for Minecraft and The Sims, but she also branches out into a variety of FPS games. She even played a part in Michelle Obama's Twitch stream that was held for #CollegeSigningDay alongside Ninja and Anne Munition! Over the past several years, Aureylian has raised over $47,000 USD for the kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. With her goal this year, she's hoping to reach or surpass the $60,000 USD mark. She boasts a following of over 150,000 on Twitch and just shy of 300,000 on YouTube. She has been one of our biggest supporters, earning her the title of Extra Life Ambassador for 2019. We are so proud to be able to work with such a positive force in the gaming community to build something amazing for children across the United States and Canada. If you are curious about what will be going down on the stream itself, a wide variety of activities are planned. The action will start off with a chill morning stream of the house renovation game House Flipper at 8am PT. Following that, get ready for some spooky fun at 10am PT with a playthrough of a Minecraft adventure set in an eerie realm.
