  1. Hey everyone, Wizard World has offered us an amazing opportunity to be a part of their first ever Comic & GAMING Con! This will be the first of many shows Wizard World will be dedicating a large portion of event space to gaming and e-sports tournaments and they'd like to give the Extra Life Guild a free booth and some passes (for booth volunteers) in the gaming area to tell con-goers about Extra Life. It should be a pretty solid event! Can folks sound off if they can volunteer for the day(s) of the show? We could do a few different shifts every day so people don't get warn out. The days of the convention are Feb 19th-21st. Link: http://www.wizardworld.com/home-portland.html They'd also like to send some materials about the con to the Guild to share at other events you'll be going to before then. Is there a point person I can connect them with? Thanks all! Mike
  2. Hey @enzo - Extra Life is registered as Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for the Microsoft Giving Program. We receive TONS of employee-made donations from that program across the country. Definitely a great tool to utilize if you have the ability to.
  3. Was about # of tickets and attendance this far out. Apparently they usually sell TONS more and the trends in sales they were seeing made them decide to pull the show. They do this so many times I'm sure they have it down to a science and have specific bench marks they have it hit. They'll love the enthusiasm about helping them promote the next opportunity tho!
  4. Hey all - Just hopped off the phone with Wizard World. They aren't seeing the numbers they wanted to for the Atlanta event so they are going to pull it and move the launch of the gaming-only conventions to Portland. Sorry to get everyone's hopes up but it doesn't look like this is in the cards for 2016!
  5. They'll be sending over a one-sheeter summarizing everything by next week and I'll pass it along to you Rae! If for some reason you don't hear from me, just ping me at mkinney@cmnhospitals.org and we'll get everything figured out!
  6. Hey everyone! Just hopped off the phone with the folks at Wizard World. They'll be hosting a lot more conventions strictly focused on gaming this year and will be kicking the Wizard World Gaming Conventions off in Atlanta from January 22 -24. AND we have a booth! We can either have it in the exhibitor area or the gaming area (which will stay open later for tournaments). Who wants to take lead and rally the troops?! http://www.wizardworld.com/home-atlanta.html
  7. Hey everyone! Just was notified that our Dropbox's public links were temporarily shut down due to high traffic (holy smokes!). We'll be moving all of the Broadcasting Toolkit items to the Downloads section of the Community Site shortly! Thanks for your patience.

Update: You can now download the Broadcasting Toolkit from the downloads area: http://community.extra-life.org/files/category/13-broadcasting-toolkit/ Can you believe that Extra Life Game Day 2015 is just 4 days away?! It seems like just yesterday we were launching this year’s website and brainstorming what we can do to help make 2015 one for the record books. While you certainly don't need to stream your Game Day fun, we know some people in the Extra Life community choose to do so on services like Twitch. I want you know that we’ve heard you loud and clear about needing streaming tools. If you are planning a Game Day broadcast, we're excited to announce that the Extra Life Broadcasting Toolkit is here! Inside you will find: Extra Life Donation AlertsDepending on how tech savvy you are, there are a few different ways that allow you to integrate Donation Alerts into your Extra Life Broadcast. All options are 100% free and connect directly with your Extra Life account through your unique participant ID. Miracle Story Videos & Commercial BreaksWant to show your viewers the impact of their donations or just need to step away from your stream for a few minutes? We have tons of patient stories from families who have been treated at our hospitals, promotional videos and thank you messages you can run. The videos range from 30 seconds to 7 minutes! Customizable Buttons for your Broadcasting PagePersonalize your Twitch profile with Extra Life themed buttons! There are dozens of pre-made buttons and even templates for you to make your own. Stream OverlaysNot the Bob Ross of designing overlays? No worries! We’ve designed a couple different overlays that you can choose from and we’ll continually be adding more as time allows. Talking Points about Children’s Miracle Network HospitalsEver wondered how many kiddos are treated at a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital each year? How about every minute? The numbers will shock you and your viewers. Our hospitals treat every patient and their family, regardless of their injury, illness, or ability to pay! Again, you definitely don't need to stream your Game Day fun in order to participate in Extra Life, but if you are, we hope we just made your day much easier!

  12. The Extra Life community is honored to be powered by Twitch for 2015 in our mission to save the lives of sick and injured local kids being treated at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals throughout North America. Twitch and Extra Life are nearly the same age with Twitch officially born in 2011, just a year after Extra Life became an international program. Throughout our lives, together, the women and men at Twitch have been some of the most ardent supporters of our program. From making last year’s Extra Life United possible, to introducing our cause to some of their most prolific partners, Twitch’s generosity has helped us write so much of our story. To celebrate our 4th Extra Life working together, Twitch is offering a 30-Day Subscription of Twitch Turbo to every Extra Lifer that raises just $5 for their local hospital! Redemption emails will be sent out starting this week. Twitch Turbo will give you an ad-free experience on everything you watch, a custom set of chat emoticons, expanded chat color options, an exclusive Turbo badge and increased video storage for your past Twitch broadcasts. Redemption codes for your Twitch Turbo subscription are automatically delivered to the email address in your Extra Life profile within a few short hours of raising your first $5. It should be noted that these codes are for new subscribers only, so if you’ve already hopped on the Twitch Turbo train, feel free to leverage your code for a donation to your fundraising page. For example: “I’ve got a code for a free month of Twitch Turbo for the next person to donate $X to my Extra Life page!” On behalf of millions of kids and a grateful Extra Life Community, THANK YOU to our friends at Twitch for once again stepping up big For The Kids.
