    You all are awesome! Just want to throw this out there - if you have ideas that you think would help persuade your friends/coworkers/etc. to join and help you out, we're all ears! i.e. Game features/BTS app features/marketing/etc. We're still working out bugs, designing new games - but overall trying to make it a better experience for you and we love to see campaigns funded! It's free money going to great causes, just like Zyaldar mentioned! Happy gaming! (If you want you can PM me as well: hans@beetheswarm.com)

    Many thanks to @Ceraph1216 for arranging this event for us again this year, and for volunteering the day with me. This was a small event and was very short, but was a bit of a hike with some big highway tolls. Our final results for the 6 hour event were 10 unique new Extra-Life sign-ups! Since we were very close to Delaware, which is Philadelphia territory, we did have several individuals who chose to donate to their local hospital, but we still had quite a few for our local hospital, Johns Hopkins Children's Center. We had approximately 1.7 sign-ups per hour for each hour our table/booth was open at the event. Since on average each sign up results in $100 raised, we can approximate that our efforts this weekend raised $1000 for Extra Life, approximately $800 of which was for our local hospital. The best practice for events, as published in the Guild Handbook, is to seek events that would average 10 sign-ups per hour. I really needed to go and "dust off" my skills so I was glad to have participated, but in the future unless this event changes drastically, I believe we shouldn't allocate more than one volunteer for the day. It is only a 6 hour event plus setup and tear down. Strategies used for this con: video loop of CMN Miracle Stories raffle for sign-ups tablet sign-ups on wi-fi live artist demo loose giveaways (no win/participation needed) Positives: plenty of space targeted audience convenient parking and setup power and wi-fi Opportunites: overall foot traffic - location change from main area to gaming hall many visitors to the table took candy but did not engage @Ceraph1216, would love any feedback you have to add!

    Last year at ECCC, I talked to a middle school teacher who was trying to get one of his afterschool clubs involved. I think he said community service hours were required for graduation, and that Extra Life would be a fun way to fulfill that! Sounds like a great idea, with the discretion of the school. At my university, there's actually a whole group of students (from the gaming club) who stream for Extra Life.
