  1. Extra Life Kansas City Guild Meeting Notes July 10 Game Day is November 2nd Join our team here: https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.team&teamID=44644 Guild Information: 1) We increase funds and awareness for KU Medical Center Pediatrics 2) Together we Save kids' lives through rallying and connecting local organizations together! 3) Purpose of the Guild is to Register, Fundraise, and Get Social! MONEY RAISED as of July 10: $23,005 (I believe it is higher now) NUMBER OF GAMERS as of July 10: 179 Child story: Joe Tillery MEETING NOTES: 1) You can now sync your Extra Life donation page to the Facebook donate button! Follow the instructions HERE. 2) We raised $500 at Maker Faire thanks to great art and Brie's face painting skills! We also got several donations and tons of sign ups at Northland Pride so we want to do more small events! 3) Then, we went through a list of organizations and stores and signed up for places we want to reach out to. We will ask them to hang signs or if they have events at which we could recruit. Here is the list if you'd like to sign up or see what you signed up for! 4) It was decided several of us want to get together to send out emails to colleges and high school organizations so Lora will be group texting those interested 5) Lora discussed professional pitches vs convention pitches. Here is a recap: The Call to Action is different! Instead of getting the person to sign up, you ask about hanging fliers, attending their events, or putting together a donation jar or donation event. INTRODUCE YOURSELF and say you're part of the Extra Life Kansas City Guild. It sounds more legit. Don't forget your 10 second Extra Life recap: what it is, mention we support KU Med (keep it local), and that we are wanting to share info KEEP IT SHORT: these people are busy and they are on the clock. If they don't seem to be able to give you a lot of time, don't keep them talking. Please note that we are NOT looking to host our own events (unless it is a game event for donations or something) but piggy back off events they already have. Also, please note we will NOT promote any event or organization on anything other than our personal Facebook pages (at your discretion) UPCOMING VOLUNTEER EVENTS: KANTCON Extra Life Organizers: Todd and Christiy Location and times: July 20 & 21 @ OP Convention Center What will be doing?: We will have a booth to recruit and collect funds! If you are interested in helping on that Saturday please let Todd, Christiy, or Lora know! DOTTE-CON Extra Life Organizers: Brie or Rashida Location and times: August 10 @ 1737 N 82nd St, Kansas City, KS 66112 What will be doing?: We will have a table to discuss Extra Life and recruit. WE CANNOT COLLECT DONATIONS. If you are interested, let Lora or Brie know! MID-WEST ABILITIES SUMMIT Extra Life Organizers: Lora Location and times: August 24 @ OP Convention Center What will be doing?: We will have a table to discuss Extra Life, recruit, and collect donations. It is a great way to reach out to the disability community in KC! Next meeting Date:Next meeting is Wednesday, August 14th at 7pm somewhere in KS (stay tuned) Workshop: Streaming (Have questions? Leave them here!)
  2. As an Extra Life volunteer, pitches are your most important skill to develop. For as much money as you can raise on your own, the amount increases exponentially with each additional marathoner and volunteer you can recruit to the cause. A pitch must be attention grabbing, appealing, and most importantly: short. Do’s & Don’ts of a good pitch Do: Keep it light, speak clearly, have several variants of pitches to appeal to different audiences, know your FAQs, practice, time your pitch, create a quick “TL;DR” version aka KEEP IT SHORT Don’t: Swear, mention politics, be pushy, enter personal space, be overly familiar, be on your phone/disengaged, overuse guilt trips Anatomy of a Pitch: The Hook - Used to get people to approach. Usually a single sentence or two, an attention grabber. Examples: Have you ever wanted to be in a charity marathon but didn’t want to run? Help sick kids by gaming at home! Ask me how! I love your ___ costume! Do you like gaming? Have you heard of Extra Life? The TL;DR - A quick summary of who we are and what we do, no more than 15 seconds. This is how you GAUGE INTEREST Example: We’re a Children’s Miracle Network affiliate benefitting KUMed Pediatrics. We function sort of like a 5k but instead of running a marathon we have an annual gaming marathon! We raise money year round and 100% of what we raise goes to sick Kansas City area kids. This hits the main points: who we’re benefitting, the fact that we are 100% non-profit, what the marathon is, and the fact that the funds stay local. Feel free to tailor this to your audience. For example, joke about not running with non-athletic people. Simplify for kids and mention that they could ask their parents about participating. Hit the “helping sick kids” harder with older folks who may not want to sign up but might donate. The Quick and Dirty - Your person seems interested but also like they have somewhere to be soon. Sum up what they can do to help! Example: So what we’re doing here at [event name here] is signing interested people up to participate in the marathon. If you’re interested, it will only take a moment to sign up and in a couple of weeks we’ll email you your pre-made fundraiser page. If you’re not sure, we’d love if you shared about us on social media and you can feel free to take some information. Donations are also always appreciated - every little bit helps local kids! Make sure you make it clear how they can help and how little it takes. Convenience is not the enemy because literally anything that helps adds up! The In-Depth - In place of the Quick and Dirty or in addition to it. Your person is actively interested and is asking questions. Things to include: KNOW YOUR FAQs. Your resource page has an FAQ sheet and myself and Lora can get you hard copies on request. You should be able to answer when game day is, what kind of games you can play, are there specific events, do i have to stream, does it cost to participate, do I have to play local, etc. etc. etc. KNOW YOUR WHY. Why do you, personally, participate in this event? Personal anecdotes are a great way to add a more immediate reality of what you’re doing for a potential recruit. BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATING. Mention how rewarding it is to help local kids. Show off the miracle kids book / pages at the booth. Talk about how it’s a charity that enables you to help even if you don’t have the funds to donate personally or a lot of time. Feel free to elaborate how flexible game day is here. It never hurts to mention that it is charitable work and by that token is tax deductible, looks good on a job or college application, and is a great excuse to spend a ton of time doing something fun while helping others. SWAG. Don’t feel bad about sweetening the pot. We’ve got some neat buttons and other cute extra life swag as a reward for different beneficial actions. The Wrap Up - Final thoughts This should be pretty similar to your quick and dirty. Reiterate the simplicity of what you’re doing and if they remain uninterested in signing up, encourage them to donate or share about us. It never hurts to remind them that if they’re not interested, a friend may be.

MONEY RAISED as of June 12: $18,985 (I believe it is higher now) NUMBER OF GAMERS as of June 12: 155 MEETING NOTES: 1) First, we discussed the past 3 events. We all agreed that doing smaller, more laid back, events is fun and is successful! We all enjoyed PopCon and Light Saber Battle but opt not to do Conquest again as it is not free. 2) It was agreed that when doing outdoor events we should remind volunteers to wear sunscreen and pack water and snacks 3) We also had a large discussion about getting back out into the community again and hanging posters in game shops, bars, etc. We discussed putting together a database of all the gaming-related businesses in the Kansas City area and perhaps even assigning people to go hang posters at these places or discuss bigger opportunities. 4) We agreed that next month Lora would provide info on how to pitch Extra Life to businesses instead of just to people and have a large planning session about which businesses in KC we should approach first and delegate who should go talk to them. 5) Agreed to do a pitch-off in Sept or Oct and that the prize should be a donation to the winner's page. 6) Meetings will now be at 7pm instead of 630pm. 7) Meeting locations will now be at local libraries.

Extra Life Kansas City Guild Meeting Notes January 10th at the Microsoft Store Game Day is November 3rd Current standings: 30-ish Sign ups TOP INFO: Kansas City Planet Comic Con is coming up, more details below! Our NEXT MEETING will be FEBRUARY 21 and we will have a kickoff in Feb or March! Guild Information: 1) Purpose of the Guild is to recruit new members, new recruits raise money for the Children's Miracle Network. 2) Recruitment is based on visiting local events, spread the world about Extra Life and getting sign ups 3) Guild is also great for networking for non-Guild related fund raising events. 2018 DISCUSSION: -KU Medical Center will be rolling out new marketing campaign focusing on the life achievements of the children instead of just focusing on hospital equipment and services. For instance, they will focus on how a child attended High School when doctors thought they wouldn't live that long instead. -Current Guild fundraising goal for the team is $10,000. -Guild Kickoff will be in Feb or March, where will we discuss the new direction of Guilds and set goals for 2018 -Register HERE if you haven't yet! Never too early to start fundraising! EVENTS: PLANET COMIC CON KANSAS CITY Extra Life Organizer: Sean A / Lora W Location and times: Convention Center Feb 16-18th, 2018 Notes: *SEE BELOW, LOTS OF INFO! FUTURE EVENTS: EXTRA LIFE UNITED Location and times: March 7th to 10th. Notes: Check the ELU community forum to find room sharing for the event! NAKA-KON Extra Life Organizer: Lora and Brie Location and times: March 17th and 18th Notes: If you're interested in volunteering for Naka-Kon please comment below and Brie and Lora will get you scheduled! PLANET COMIC CON KANSAS CITY INFO-UPDATED AT MEETING: AS OF RIGHT NOW, WE ARE NOT TAKING ANY MORE PLANET COMICON VOLUNTEERS. RULES: 1) You must have worked an event previously to apply to work at PCKC. Planet gets busy quickly, and we need people comfortable with their elevator speeches. 2) YOU MUST ATTEND THE VOLUNTEER ORIENTATION ON FEBRUARY 10 FROM 2P TO 5P. If you can't make it, please let Lora and Sean know and you can make other arrangements. 3) You must show up 30 minutes before your shift with your Planet Comic Con shirt on. Once you are inside the convention you may chance into your Extra Life shirt, but your PCKC shirt is your ticket into the convention. If you cannot make it, call Sean at least one hour before your shift to notify of your absence. 4) In addition to our Extra Life duties, we will be sending people to help out with PCKC throughout the day. Since we are technically volunteers for the Planet Entertainment Zone, Extra Life gets a free booth at the event. In exchange, we will be aiding the convention on occasion as situations require. 5) If you haven't signed up for a shift, please do so via the Google Doc in Sean's email. 6) Schedule may be edited before the final version is released. Once the panel schedule is released, you may negotiate with others to switch shifts, but all switches need to be cleared by Sean. Otherwise you will still be held accountable for that shift. 7) Failure to show up for a shift without proper notification will result in your badge being revoked for the day. 8) Daily badges will be in effect, you will only have a badge for the days you are working. Additional Information: Remember Convention Rules: a) Show up for your shifts, if you cannot make it contact your Extra Life Organizer. b) No need to hang around booth when it is not your shift, we want to maintain a professional appearance at the booth c) Ensure the forms are completed and legible when dealing with hand written forms. d) Keep our booth clean, take your trash with you. Planet Comic Con event notes: a) Looking into Sponsorship deals for the Bingo Cards. b ) We will be in one of two places: 1-- With Microsoft at their gaming set-up in the PEZ with possibly a table as well as direct access to the gamers and viewers to discuss Extra Life and help Microsoft as needed. 2 -- Table in the Tabletop game room. We will probably only have 1 person there to collect BINGO cards (if we have them) and pass out flyers to anyone who may stumble to the table. Otherwise, we'll be boots on the ground walking around the con and passing out flyers and signing people up via tablets and phones. c) Booth events will include a Penny War as previous years, and may include additional events such as games/raffles/giveaways for the Bingo Cards. d) You will get fed on your shift. e) You will have to pay for parking f) You will need to check in every day for your shift. Where you do that will be covered in volunteer orientation Next meeting (NOTE DIFFERENT DATE): FEBRUARY 21st 2018
  7. I agree. I'd love to be able to layer my goals on my donation page. Some donors can be very visual and if they see your bar is full they will think they don't need to donate...and vice versa. I raised my goal to 10k after ELU and I'm finding it is not actually helping me reach my goal. People think it's unattainable and so they don't donate. Plus, it eliminates how freaking cool it was that I blew through my goal thanks to ELU.
  8. Hey all! I compiled this list for the Kansas City Guild and I figured I'd share it here too! Guildies were wondering about other ways to fundraise besides social media and asking people, so since I know many of you have done restaurant events, etc...I thought I'd put together a list of info I could find on companies that do fundraising nights/events. This are mostly places in Kansas City, but the big restaurants are everywhere and some of the other things can be translated elsewhere. If you have more detailed info on any of these, please let me know! I'd love to pass it on Some of these places have online forms, which I have linked. Many of them are easy to book if you simply go in and chat to the owner or manager of the place! Never underestimate the effectiveness of going and talking to someone! RESTAURANTS Buffalo Wild Wings: Not 100% sure on amounts, but I believe it is 10% of stuff purchased with charity ticket, not including alcohol. You need to go in and talk to the restaurant manager to book. Here is some info. California Pizza Kitchen: 20% of sales from flyers. Fill out online form and they claim a manager will contact within 3 days! Cici’s Pizza: says to contact local store owners for info! Chili’s: 10% of sales with flyer. Tues or Wed night fundraisers. Give back 10% of sales with vouchers/flyers. Must reach $500 in sales for a donation or the donation will be made in food vouchers. Info. Chipotle: a whopping 50% of sales from flyers. They do not specify hospitals on their list, but if you contact them or get in touch with a specific location they may do it anyway if they don’t have any other community events going on! Info. Five Guys: must contact the store owner. Freddy’s: Online form. Noodles and Co: 25% of sales. Not sure if flyers or not. They “prefer” you have 150 people in attendance. Online form. Panda Express: 20% of sales from fliers. Online form. Panera: 20% of sales from people who bring in a flyer for the event. Online form. Raising Canes: 15% of sales with flyer. They also create a landing page for the event that you can share online. Online form. Red Robin: 20% of sales from fliers. They provide a whole host of marketing items such as flyers, social media images, a website, etc. Online form. PARTIES In-Home/Online Direct Sales Parties LuLaRoe (leggings/clothes): Depends on the consultant. Pure Romance: I am a consultant. If someone wants to have a party online, I'll donate 15% to Extra Life! Scentsy (scents/warmers): I know they do them but don’t have specifics ThirtyOne (bags): Anywhere from 5% to 24% of sales depending on the amount purchased. Younique (make-up): 20% of party sales go to the charity. **With in home party companies it all depends on the consultant. Many consultants will do even more than the company suggests!** Painting Parties Pinot’s Palette: “Paint it Forward” program with both public and private options at their locations. You have to email the manager of the store or go and visit them to set up. They have multiple locations **There are many of these everywhere and SO MANY do fundraising events!** MISC. Geeks Who Drink: you can set up your own Geeks Who Drink Night at a local bar in your area if you have one. Game Stores: Talk to a game store about having one of their tournaments for charity! Or, see about getting a donation jar in the store. Or, when you go to your usual game night...start talking about Extra Life! Trick or Treating for EL funds: go door to door asking for change for Extra Life. If you feel weird going as an adult, find someone with a kid and bring them with you! A few ELers in other cities have done this and it worked pretty well! I once collected food donations in high school door to door and it was a HUGE success! Maybe even dress up in a gaming costume! You can pass out flyers too! NOTES: -This is by no means a full list! Just an idea starter! -Going and talking to managers is an easy way to get something done! Don’t just rely on online forms! -Many of these require a W-9 with information. Your hospital should be able to get one. -Many of these require 4 to 6 weeks notice...so start planning NOW! -Most of these require flyers...which makes the process harder. Perhaps you team up with another Extra Lifer in a different friend group from you and you pass out the flyers more? Some suggest passing out 500, which I agree with. With a lot of events, you can only expect a small percentage to actually attend. So the more you invite...the more will come! Hope this helps at least one of you out there! I know there are hundreds of other ideas!
  9. Hey KC!!! I spoke about this last night in the meeting, but I want to put it all here with links and such! I know we as individual Extra Lifers sometimes struggle with fundraising. Sometimes we feel like we've literally asked everyone we know and social media is only getting us so far. So, I compiled a list of possible fundraising events you could host to raise money for Extra Life! About 90% of the things on this list have never been tried (at least not by anyone in KC)...and it's about time that changed! Wouldn't it be cool if we had something every month? Some of these places have online forms, which I have linked. Many of them are easy to book if you simply go in and chat to the owner or manager of the place! Never underestimate the effectiveness of going and talking to someone! RESTAURANTS Buffalo Wild Wings: Not 100% sure on amounts, but I believe it is 10% of stuff purchased with charity ticket, not including alcohol. You need to go in and talk to the restaurant manager to book. Here is some info. California Pizza Kitchen: 20% of sales from flyers.

They do not specify hospitals on their list, but if you contact them or get in touch with a specific location they may do it anyway if they don’t have any other community events going on! Info. Five Guys: must contact the store owner. I have written a letter to the owner of the Oak Park Mall location, per the managers instructions, but haven't heard anything back. It never hurts to keep trying. Freddy’s: Online form. Noodles and Co: 25% of sales. Not sure if flyers or not. They “prefer” you have 150 people in attendance. Online form. Panda Express: 20% of sales from fliers. Online form. Panera: 20% of sales from people who bring in a flyer for the event. Online form. Raising Canes: 15% of sales with flyer. They also create a landing page for the event that you can share online. Online form. Red Robin: 20% of sales from fliers. They provide a whole host of marketing items such as flyers, social media images, a website, etc. Online form. PARTIES In-Home/Online Direct Sales Parties LuLaRoe (leggings/clothes): Depends on the consultant. My consultant does 10% of sales and LLR corp will donate as well depending on a certain amount. I'm actually having one on October 17th if anyone wants to come! I'll post it on FB. Pure Romance: I am a consultant. If someone wants to have a party, I'll donate 15% to Extra Life! Scentsy (scents/warmers): I know they do them but don’t have specifics ThirtyOne (bags): Anywhere from 5% to 24% of sales depending on the amount purchased. Lora knows a KC consultant if you don’t have one! Younique (make-up): 20% of party sales go to the charity. Lora knows a KC consultant if you need one! **With in home party companies it all depends on the consultant. Many consultants will do even more than the company suggests!** Painting Parties Pinot’s Palette: “Paint it Forward” program with both public and private options at their locations. You have to email the manager of the store or go and visit them to set up. They have multiple locations Paint Night: Multiple locations at bars, etc all over the area. They require you bring in 35 people. Choose your own location and painting. Online form. Wine and Design: In Lee’s Summit. Has a “Paint it Forward” program. Min 10 people. No max people. Info. Apple Pie Painting fundraiser: No location. They travel to wherever you want (church, house, etc). You must provide chairs & tables. 20 person min. $10 per painter goes to organization. Online form. MISC. Geeks Who Drink: you can set up your own Geeks Who Drink Night. Finch can get you info on it! It takes place at a bar in KC and they provide the trivia...you just help promote it and get a portion of the trivia fees! Game Stores: Talk to a game store in KC (Game Cafe, Geekery, Pawn and Pint, and SoPro have supported us heavily in the past) about having one of their tournaments for charity! Or, see about getting a donation jar in the store. Jessie or Katie can get you one! Or, when you go to your usual game night...start talking about Extra Life! Trick or Treating for EL funds: go door to door asking for change for Extra Life. If you feel weird going as an adult, find someone with a kid and bring them with you! A few ELers in other cities have done this and it worked pretty well! I once collected food donations in high school door to door and it was a HUGE success! Maybe even dress up in a gaming costume! You can pass out flyers too! NOTES: -This is by no means a full list! Just an idea starter! -Going and talking to managers is an easy way to get something done! Don’t just rely on online forms! -Many of these require a W-9 with information. I have one from the EL Community as well as Katie can get you one! -Many of these require 4 to 6 weeks notice...so start planning NOW! -Most of these require flyers...which makes the process harder. Perhaps you team up with another Extra Lifer in a different friend group from you and you pass out the flyers more? Some suggest passing out 500, which I agree with. With a lot of events, you can only expect a small percentage to actually attend. So the more you invite...the more will come! -Any event you book, make sure to let Jessie or Finch know so they can send it to Katie and Jill and they can promote online or even to their coworkers at the hospital! *Please note these are NOT Guild events, but I know many Guild members would come out and support!* Questions? Other ideas?
  10. @Hannie731 hosted a LLR fundraise recently so she may be able to get you some information on that if your local consultant can't. The key is to make sure you have enough people to purchase because there is a minimum goal before the company will donate. If you have lots of LLR addicts though...it's easy! And make sure to make a purchase yourself
  11. Sorry I am just now reaching out in this thread again. How did you set up your event with BWW? Was it through the store manager or through a corporate contact/online form?
  12. I already spoke to Finch, but I'll post here too: I'm going to help at First Fridays in August! I'll be at Pawn and Pint at 6pm. Also, hopefully I'll finally be able to make it to the August meeting!
  13. I won't be able to do Ren Fest at the booth, but my band is performing the October weekend so I will be on site early and late if anything needs anything for set-up, tear-down, etc. Have we spoke to Jill about getting a new tent for Ren Fest? Also, I have copious amounts of garb if anyone needs to borrow anything for a costume!
  14. Not sure if I will make the June meeting, but sign me up for any shift at Lego BrickFest and any shift for KantCon as long as I am done before 5pm on that Saturday.
