  1. Was there no partnership with Carved this year? I always look forward to a new case xD
  2. I don't think there is really anything you can/need to do from your end, unless it is of pretty high value. The material good doners will generally just write it off as "advertising costs". I always made incentives for those types of doners, by promising their logo on event flyers/event webpages/ or whatever. You can read official IRS info here: https://www.irs.gov/charities-non-profits/contributors/tax-information-on-donated-property
  3. I'd looked at that. RIFT was a pretty epic experience when it first came out all those years ago. I did alpha/beta testing for most of Trions games, and I have always had a soft spot for them in memories. Up until last year, I always did Extra Life as part of their team even if I wasn't playing their games, mostly just because of their support for the project and the prizes they gave out for fundraising milestones if you were on their team. I cleaned up my PC around the turn of the year, I played on RIFT for a few days, and I just can't do the combat anymore, lol. I am spoiled with shinier things. I am actually testing the Defiance 2050 re-release though. It was always a fun game to randomly login and do some events. Good luck with Prime!
  4. Be more specific. Perhaps we can help you fix the problem.
  5. You get rewards for $ milestones. https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=535#
  6. Yup, find out who your Children's Miracle Network contact is at your member hospital. I print my own event and Extra Life materials, but my CMN lady can usually help me out with CMN flyers.
  7. I am scheduled to run a Pokemon Go Scavenger Hunt for the May Art Walk in my town. I have acquired some local sponsors that donated incentive prizes for the Event, in exchange for advertising their Brand on the Event Web page, Event Banner @ Art Walk, a sponsor page in the participant packet, and listed as a sponsor for a specific scavenger hunt item. Getting the incentive prizes in exchange for event advertising worked amazingly well, it was an easy sell. I opened it up for pre-registration, linking to my Extra Life Page and got $50 in "registration" donation in the first 12 hours. I will let you know how it turns out after May 11.
  8. Most people don't make their money from streaming. I only stream on Extra Life GAme Day in November, and that is for fun. And it is fun. There is a lot of content that you can use when you are streaming: Children's Miracle Network youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/cmnhospitals Extra Life youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwaSP9SVfjAihAuGdp6PXxw There is also some useful information in the download section(talking points, twitch skins, flyers): http://community.extra-life.org/files/ Also reach out to your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. They will have a CMN advocate type person on staff. I have gotten some awesome FactSheets about exact numbers for that specific Childrens Hospital. You can also get the hospital logo proofs, etc. Bigger hospitals can give you support with flyers and such as well. Other forms of fundraising: Work, talk about extra life. Leave flyers laying around if you are allowed to. All social media. There are Extra Life tools built into your fundraising page to help take advantage of these. There is also a specific Extra Life app for facebook that you can set up. There is also a phone app that is very similar if not the exact same thing as the FB app. REach out to your community and find other Extra Life participants. Perhaps there is even a guild in your area. Groups can do booths and small events.

    2016 Totals

    Yep, I saw that! Pretty amazing! I'm going to go with my 7200% increase in funds for now and ignore the per-player one until we get further updates.
  10. I have done bracelets as well. In small batches. We have a small CMN hospital, so its hard find funding for promotional items. Pens are kind of lame, but everybody actually needs them and uses them.

    2016 Totals

    That would work. My event is mid April. =)

    2016 Totals

    Do we have official totals for 2016 yet? Last I heard we hit $9mill. And also total players. I was wanting to update the 2015(with 2014 totals) trifold flyer for an up coming event.I figure we are: $30+ million total 7200% increase in funds raised since 2008 no idea on funds per player. $163 if we had 55k players like 2015
  13. The card or something in the bag should be fine, as long as you aren't selling the bags specifically "for" Extra Life. Just spreading the word and making a donation from your proceeds is all good.
  14. Congratz everyone! We raised a lot of funds for CMN. I got a personal high of $900 (which is a lot considering the total raised for my little hospital is only $2150). Time for bed! We will break last years record total before the year is out.
