    Events and Meetings

    @doogles I'm so sorry I missed your message! I love the Staten Island Yankees and we would have loved to do the eSports event. I'm so sorry we missed out. If there's anything in the future you think would be a good fit, please feel free to email me at MMcKenna.ExtraLifeNYC@gmail.com.
  3. Hi Extra Life NYC Guild Members! The start of this year has been a bit crazy for me personally, so my apologies for not sending as many communications recently. But as you know, the second half of the year is when Extra Life really ramps up, so I'm excited to send you a BIG update about some really cool events we have coming up! First: If you have any friends/family/coworkers/cool strangers that you think might want to get involved with the NYC & LI Guild, please send them this link to sign up as a member and get on our emailing list: Extra Life NYC & LI Guild - New Member Sign Up 2016 Extra Life Donation Pages I want to start with a check to make sure everyone has set up their donation page for 2016. Remember, you need to create a new page every year, and you can do so by going to www.extra-life.org. When selecting which hospital to support, make sure to select: "NY - Steven and Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center" which is the CMN hospital that supports all of NYC's boroughs and Long Island! Participant & Donation Numbers Update: Participants Registered to Fundraise for Cohen: 93 Donations Received for Cohen: $3,150.00 This is a great start! Remember, our focus on is on registering new participants, because that's what leads to our donation total increasing exponentially! Upcoming Guild Meetings: In August, we're going to have our first ever meeting in Long Island! We've been talking about starting up a satellite guild in Long Island for awhile, and we're finally going to kick it off! A "satellite guild" just means that they are still a part of the NYC & LI Guild, but it allows us to have a team in LI focused on attending local events there that the Guild members who live in NYC might not be able to attend. Please RSVP using the link below if you're able to attend the LI meeting. If you live in one of the 5 boroughs, do not feel like you have to make the trip out to LI for that meeting.

If you are able to volunteer at one of these events, please reply to this email and let me know so I can fill you in on the details. Essentially, volunteering means setting up a table, and talking with the attendees of the event and asking them to register for Extra Life. You do not need to have ANY experience to volunteer, we will show you the ropes beforehand!

(Date & TimeTDB) NEW: Registration App! Speaking of registering new participants, if you haven't heard, Extra Life released an app for registering people at events, available on Apple and Android tablets! It is quick, which is key at crowded events. One of the best features is that it doesn't require internet access, which is often hard to find at big events. How this works is, you turn off Wifi on the device, collect registrations through the app, and then after the event connect to Wifi and all of the registrations will sync and go to the national database! Download it now here: Apple iOS App: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/extra-life-registration-app/id1070014192?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 Android App https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.cmnhospitals.ExtraLifeRegistration NEW: Fundraising Apps! Also, in an effort to help make fundraising more fun, more accessible and ultimately easier, there are two new Extra Life fundraising apps! Now you can fundraise through Facebook or on the go from your phone! Check out the links below to download them: Extra Life Mobile App Manage and share your Extra Life experience on the go with our new Extra Life mobile app. This free app lets you fundraise and connect with others through SMS, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn & Email. You can update your Extra Life page and check your fundraising progress all from the palm of your hand. Download the app here: iPhone | Android Extra Life Facebook App Fundraising has never been quicker or easier than with the new Extra Life Facebook App. It installs in just a few seconds and allows you to opt-in to automatic status updates, upload Extra Life profile and cover pictures and ask your entire Facebook network for donations in just a few clicks.

Extra Life Platinum T-Shirt Winner Announced With over 100 designs submitted (the most in Extra Life history), we knew we were going to have our work cut out for us as we selected the top 5 submissions, but we did it! With over 1,600 votes cast, the community has chosen the official 2016 Extra Life Platinum T-shirt. We initially were going to have the design printed on a white t-shirt but listened to the community's feedback decided a black t-shirt was the way to go instead! Thanks for helping us help the kids at Cohen get better! -Mandy -- Mandy McKenna Extra Life NYC & LI Guild President MMcKenna.ExtraLifeNYC@gmail.com @ExtraLifeNYC http://community.extra-life.org/nyc Below is just some more information about Playcrafting NYC Summer Expo, LI Retro Gaming Expo: THIS THURSDAY!

    https://www.playcrafting.com/event-detail/?event_id=25961265845 100 games. 700 players. 1 night. And pizza. Join us for our next big Expo yet on July 28th at Microsoft! Over 100 game developers will be showing off their latest games one-on-one to a crowd of 700 people. For developers, this is a great opportunity to show off their games (finished or unfinished) and get direct feedback from players. For everyone else, it's a unique opportunity to try out the biggest collection of games made in and around NYC all in one place. Each game gets its own booth as players meet the developers and try out their games. Throw pizza into the mix and you get Playcrafting's biggest event!
  7. Hey Mandy!

     

    Saw you were a presenter at the games for change conference and wanted to reach out to you! I work for Bee The Swarm.  What we do is raise money for charities and non profits by donating 100% of our mobile game revenue to charities.  We sponsor extra life teams all the time and would love to chat.  When we "sponsor" a team, what we do is donate all our revenue to the children's charity network through that team for the "days" we run there campaign.  Normally like a day or two.  Can find out more about us here:

    our youtube channel explains pretty simply what we do:

     

    Would love to say hi in person at the conference, so just give me an email if you'd like to meet up.

     

    Thanks,
