    Unimaginable Achievement, Unlocked!

    It might seem an obvious choice to write a blog with the intent of “giving thanks” as we wrap up the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States last week, but when you're fortunate enough to have a community like the Extra Life community, we feel it’s an honor and privilege to do so. You see, a couple weeks ago, we witnessed something happen in the Extra Life community that we had a hard time even imagining. We watched a single Extra Life team raise over $1 million #ForTheKids… in 24-hours. In fact, we watched them raise over $1.2 million! Team Rooster Teeth, led by the fearless Jack Pattillo and Caiti Ward, hosted their 7th Extra Life marathon over the years, full of antics and crazy shenanigans, to raise money for children and their families who desperately need your support. To simply state that we’re thankful for Jack Pattillo, Caiti Ward and everyone over at Rooster Teeth team would be grossly understating who they are and the role they’ve played in growing the Extra Life community to become a force for good for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2010, Rooster Teeth has enlisted nearly 11,000 of their fans into the Extra Life community and together, have raised an astonishing $3.5+ million dollars for 155 different Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (that’s just over 90% of our member hospitals) across the US and Canada. You can understand that when we see someone use #RTEXTRALIFE, we know they’re serious about playing games and healing kids. We know that the Rooster Teeth gang does some pretty, well, unorthodox things for donations. But this year we wanted to be sure note this ultimate “awwww cute” highlight. The Rooster Teeth community is in it for the long haul as the company has pledged to raise $3 million for Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, TX to help pay for a new mental health wing so kids with mental illnesses will have a special place to be treated. The new mental health wing at Dell Children’s will have a healing garden that provides a place for the kids to play, relax and recharge during their stay and treatment in the hospital and will be properly named the “Rooster Teeth Healing Garden”! As we recall the time spent with family and friends last week we are reminded of the love and enthusiasm that powers Extra Life. We are grateful for Rooster Teeth, Jack, Caiti and the thousands of people who’ve watched, shared, participated and donated to Extra Life, supporting and improving the lives of families in their own and other’s communities. This love and enthusiasm that powers Extra Life continues to amaze all of us here at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. On behalf of our hospitals and kids receiving treatment and care, thank you.

    Guild Leaders, Let's Chat! We have a lot to be thankful for this year! Namely, the amazing participation and support from Guilds across the US and Canada. Swing by the Discord and let's chat about 2017, what worked, what didn't and what we can do to finish strong for Extra Life until the end of the year. I really enjoyed our chat in September, so please let's gather once more before the end of the year!

    Extra Life 2017 Game Day - Success!

    I am STILL dragging from nearly a week ago. Need. More. Coffee. But every minute was worth it. Extra Life weekend (Nov 4-5) brought in over $1.8 million for CMN Hospitals, bringing the overall fundraising total of Extra Life close to $7.8 million as of 11-9-17. We are stunned! Amazed! Honored! That is what we like to call, a success! The donations are STILL coming in too! We know that many of you are playing in the coming weeks, so we have a good feeling about 2017. If you came up short of your goal, no problem! There's still time to collect donations until 12/31/2017. Grab that loot too! Extra Lifers still have time to raise more funds and unlock some cool incentives! The end of Game Day weekend also brought forth the winners of the ESA Foundation Challenge . Congratulations to Seattle Children's Hospital for winning top fundraising hospital, and Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation for winning top hospital per capita! We are so proud of this community. You have really come through once again for the kids at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the US and Canada. Keep up the good work, we still have plenty of time to play games and heal kids!

    Donation Refund

    They can send an email to support with this request and information pertaining to the donation that has been made. Support@extra-life.org will be able to take care of that.
  15. Hello Extra Lifers! We love when new folks join us in raising awareness and support for our Children's Miracle Network Hospitals through Extra Life. Sound off! Let us know more about you! Why do you Extra Life? How long have you been participating? What Hospital do you play for and why? Are you a member of one of our Guilds? What do you do when you aren't helping kids? What do you play? PC, Console, handheld? Tabletop? Cosplay/Creative? Something else entirely!?

    What do I do about setting my goal if I want to join a team?

    Hey! Personal donations are added together for each team member. That's how your team reaches it overall goal, by you and your fellow team members rocking it out. Your goal can be higher or lower than the team goal and you can change that goal when you hit milestones!
  17. Different issue but same problem. The team is aware of the issue and are working on it! A little chaos before the storm ;).
  18. We'll definitely do our best! Donations can be taken through 12/31 too, so no worries about you and your hospital being credited!
  19. Hello everyone! If you are looking for a way to share your donation alerts on stream, check out Streamlabs (TwitchAlerts/Streampro collaboration). It's fairly straightforward, though let us know if you have any questions! https://support.streamlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/236189528-How-to-setup-Extra-Life-alerts
  20. Hey @Press Start! This is a question for StreamLabs (I'll make note of it, but be sure to reach to them too!), but the information should be available to them to integrate this to their donation alerts. I could have sworn it did this already, but perhaps not?
  21. If you contacted support about this asking them to adjust the donation, then yes! Support ticket volume is very high at this time, but they will get to it.
