  5. Play Games. Heal Kids. Now to be perfectly clear, just playing games isn’t what is going to help the kids treated at your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. It’s telling your friends, family, coworkers and other community members about what you’re doing, why you’re doing it and then asking them to make a donation to your fundraising page in support of your efforts. Here are some tips & tricks to help you get started: Fundraising Tips & Tricks 1. Personalize your Extra Life Fundraising Page 2. Use the Extra Life Email Portal to ask for donations 3. Download the Extra Life Facebook and mobile apps There are also 1,000+ posts in our community forums of best practices that Extra Lifers from around the world are sharing and discussing with each other. Spend 15 minutes browsing the topics and I’m sure you’ll be able to find one that works for you. We're here to help you in your quest to save kids' lives through gaming! Let us know if you need any help at support@extra-life.org and a member of our crew will be in touch shortly afterwards.

  6. Drum roll please....we're offer more opportunities in 2018 for YOU to get involved and share your talents to further grow our ATL Extra Life program. To top it off we're hoping to host an inaugural game day event in ATL this fall. To do this, we've created a few more guild committee positions----which greatly lessens the responsibilities per committee member, but ultimately boosts our extra life community and the kids we support! Lou, Liz, Mike, and the amazing Extra Life team at CMNH are also rolling out a few new national leadership structures in spring that we'll merge into our 2018 committee plan as well----making a more awesome---AND manageable--- way for more people to get involved in Extra Life without getting overwhelmed. The best part about this is: we have the opportunity to make it our own and create a committee that best serves the needs and interests of our ATL Extra Life community! This means if you're not 100% sold on all the aspects of one of the roles listed below...no problem! Share your interests in the application---and once we see where everyone's interests are, we'll adjust the outline below to best fit our community. We are still seeking passionate committee members to join our team and support local Extra Life efforts. We just need YOU to take a few minutes to complete the application below and email it to beth.agee@choa.org. The committee position descriptions are listed on page 2 and 3 of the attached 2018 committee document. Both of the docs below are also available on google docs. The committee hosts a monthly call while working together to save kids’ lives through rallying and connecting local gaming communities in support of CMN Hospitals. Please reach out to me via beth.agee@choa.org or 404.785.7366 with any questions. I'm looking forward to another incredible year with the Extra Life Atlanta community---and making an even bigger impact on our kids at Children's!

    Reaching Your Goals

    For those still trying to hit your goal...and for those who already have....check out these suggestions from a few Extra Life supporters across the country! From @allthewayj "having people donate and i’ll wrap their presents" From @mosersaurus I’m going to do one last push and pledge to rock a mullet if I hit $5000 by the end of the year. I sent out a thank you email to all of my donors on Thanksgiving day just letting them know how awesome they are and the difference they are making with their support” From @Snow_White_Raven “I am going through right now and thanking every person that is supporting our hospital on their game page and getting them the info to connect with our guild.” From @FoxRacingGurl “When people are asking what to get me for Christmas, I asked for donation to my extra life account instead. Also some holiday parties choose to donate to a charity instead of bringing unwrapped toys or gifts for one another. So maybe reach out to some of the hosts of parties to see if they would be willing to make Extra Life their charity of choice.”
