    New Group wanting to start

    Hey Matt! The first place to start would be to of course register for Extra Life! While many people play on Game Day, there is no one way to participate. Many gamers host events, fundraise and live stream throughout the year. When you register you can create a team as well. Let your community know what you're doing, so when the register they can join your team. As a team captain, you can set a collective team goal, customize your team page with any relevant information or incentives you're offering for participation or scheduling info for your streams or events. If you're interested, we can also connect you with your local CMN Hospital representative to further support you and your team locally. Don't forget to swing by our official Discord too, there's likely others who would like to join in with your efforts.

  12. I really have been spending a lot of time and money on Nintendo lately, much more than I would have ever expected. Very excited and happy with this generation of Nintendo gaming!
  13. I wish I had time for this still! I was the only active staff writer for Bigheartedgamers.com, unfortunately I've been a little busy lately. One day, perhaps. And I totally agree, the Kalnins are amazing people, we're lucky to have them
  14. Hello friends! I have the pleasure of writing for an up and coming blog, www.bigheartedgamers.com. We are looking for gamers who make a difference through charity and action. What better place than Extra Life to find such folks, right? If you are a guild leader, member who wants to shine the spotlight on a fellow Extra Lifer, I want to hear from you! I am hoping for semi-regular spotlights from the Extra Life faithful. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Upgrading to Platinum?

    This has been addressed! You should no longer see this table/links. Thank you!

    Upgrading to Platinum?

    Which link? Heading to extra-life.org/platinum should get you what you're after but let us know which URL you're clicking? Is it the one in the box that says "Upgrade to Platinum?" That box shouldn't be there, we're making sure it gets taken care of! Thanks @Bacchanalian!

    Bakersfield is Alive and Kicking

    Hey @SpaceGhost2K! Thanks for giving us an update! It's great to see the hard work you've done to support your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. It's been a bit since we've chatted so I'm glad you've made this post to share your goings-on! Bakersfield's Guild status definitely open for discussion, though there are changes to the program in 2018. I haven't forgotten to share this with Bakersfield (there is an email thread, I know!) as we are rolling things out this year. If you're still interested in hearing about it, we should have a preview of things to come later this month. We'd always love you join us on the official Discord too. You're definitely welcome to join our bi-monthly chats and if you're willing or interested and I'm happy to add your email to our Guild Leader Newsletter, if you're not already. That's older rhetoric that we really haven't subscribed to for about two years or so, which has prompted new best practices and the revision of the Extra Life Guild program too! Focusing solely on recruitment was a hallmark when the Guild Program began, and it's obvious that it's time for a change (probably for sometime now)! We're looking forward to a more sustainable and flexible program based on the feedback we've received from our Guilds, and it's feedback that we take to heart. I'm glad to see that you've found success in other creative and exciting avenues, and it inspires and informs us to other possibilities, so thank you! This is a tremendous effort! Amazing, ambitious work that has obviously affected your community and hospital. I absolutely love this, great idea to engage your community, making it easy for them to participate. This is dated rhetoric that is changing thankfully. These are additional, innovative and exciting ways to support Extra Life and your hospital. If it hasn't been said before are thank you for your efforts for Extra Life. It's obvious that there is no stopping Bakersfield, and for that I'm grateful! Once we roll-out the revision of the Guild program we'd love for you to take a look and if it feels like something you would like to be a part of, then I see no reason why we wouldn't want you to participate. Otherwise it's obvious you have a good thing going with your group and LSCC is lucky to have you. If you need anything or have any questions, let me know!
  18. Hey @Breakout Esports, For partnership inquiries, please complete this form if you haven't already! https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1309 Thank you for your interest and support of Extra Life!

    Extra Life November 2017 Newsletter

    Hey Friends! Another Game Day and another Extra Life milestone! The past month marked a number of fundraising firsts and shattered records, meaning November 2017 saw the entire community step up and raise more money than ever before to help sick and injured kids across North America. Our monthly updates are sent out to let you all know the important news from around the community. Buckle in, because you’re the best gaming has to offer! A Record-Breaking Game Day Game Day weekend left our jaws on the floor this year as you all came together to raise over $1.8 million for the kids! The collective efforts of thousands of gamers across all kinds of platforms and mediums pushed us beyond the $7 million mark. It was a weekend of coming together, helping children, and forging memories. We certainly won't be forgetting our milestone celebration anytime soon! First $1MM+ Team in Extra Life History We are proud to announce that Rooster Teeth now holds the honor of being the first team to raise over $1 MILLION! Since they began participating in Extra Life, the RT community has collected more than $3 million for Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas. They're making miracles happen for those kids. November was Humbling! The past month has seen game developers and publishers support Extra Life through Humble Bundle. Our friends at Double Fine Productions created the Day of the Devs Bundle raising over $57K for the kids. For Game Day, we had the opportunity to put together the massive official Extra Life Humble Bundle that brought in an additional $60K with the help of Bandai Namco, Adult Swim Games, Paradox Interactive, DrinkBox Studios, and PAIZO. Reminder: You can support Extra Life with each Humble Bundle purchase by using our partner link. Continuing to Make Miracles We may have broken $7 million on Game Day weekend, but the Extra Life community continued fundraising for all of November. That month of fundraising means that Extra Life 2017 has currently raised over $10 MILLION FOR THE KIDS!!! That's truly incredible! Every year, Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the US and Canada treat 10 million kids, and it is amazing to see Extra Life step up to try to meet their needs. We’ve broken a lot of records this year, but remember that there’s still time to do more. Fundraising remains open through December 31st. We put together some fundraising tips for those in the community who want to help us reach $10.5 million before the end of 2017. Get your offline and matching donations in as soon as possible to count toward your 2017 fundraising total! Never stop pushing forward for fun, fellowship, and – as always….

    ELU2018?

    I will totes buy you a burrito if you come. Note: I owe @allthewayj cookies I now owe @K8Morosky a burrito
  25. Hey @Illuminerdy, @allthewayj is correct! We cannot donate to a team, but to an individual on a team. If you would send an email to support@extra-life.org, they can move it to someone on that team. Be sure to include who you want to have the donation credited to. When you donate to the individual on a team it to their collective team goal, so that should work out!
