February has come and gone, leaving us with great announcements from the past month and some events coming in the near future. If you haven’t yet, make sure to sign up for Extra Life 2017 over on extra-life.org.
Buckle in, because you are all freaking amazing!
In just the first two months of 2017, over 4,500 people have registered to participate in Extra Life. Together, we have raised over $214,000 for the kids and we still have 10 months left in the year! If you want to take your fundraising to the next level, we’ve created some useful apps to help you reach more people than ever before. Who thinks we can raise over $10 million this year?!
PAX East is coming up March 10-12 and the Boston Guild will be on site registering interested attendees. If you’ll be there, make sure to wear some Extra Life gear and swing by booth #10046 on the show floor to say hi. You can chat with other Extra Life community members and snag an exclusive Extra Life button (while supplies last).
A huge thank you to Bandai Namco who, earlier this month, chose to support Extra Life through Humble Bundle with the Humble Bandai Namco 2 Bundle. Thank you to those who bought the 169,491 bundles and helped to raise $174,000 #ForTheKids. If you love Humble Bundle, you can actually select Extra Life as your charity of choice for all future bundles with one click.
International Tabletop Day looms on the horizon. The official day this year is April 29. A substantial number of Extra Lifers have been planning mini-Extra Life marathons that weekend. If you’re planning one, make sure to add yours to the Community Site calendar!
In preparation for the Nintendo Switch launch on March 3, we wrote up a primer on everything you need to know about the new console and its games along with some hands-on impressions. Check it all out and let us know your thoughts in the comments!
Join us today and help us change the lives of kids across the United States and Canada. We have accomplished so much together and it’s only February, so let’s all keep pushing forward for fun, fellowship, and – as always….
For The Kids!
