  1. Hi everyone, my name is Andrew Espinoza. I am 24 years old and a father of a beautiful, energetic two-year-old boy named Liam. Liam loves to meet people and give hugs. His favorite thing to do is take toys apart, just to figure out how they work. My interest in Extra Life hit close to home in May when we went to Boston Children's Hospital because Liam was sick. Our local hospital did not have the equipment and resources to treat our son and sent us to Boston Children's Hospital. Liam possibly had Intussusception, which means a portion of the bowel slides into the next, much like pieces of a telescope. When telescoping happens, the flow of fluids and food through the bowel become blocked and the intestine swell and bleed. Eventually, this can cause part of the bowel to die. Intussusception happens in one-fourth of every 1,000 infants. As we made our way to Boston's Children Hospital, we were worried about Liam and emotionally drained. We were hoping he would be all right and we could just go home. The most peaceful moment came in the ambulance ride where Liam finally fell asleep for the first time that day - which you can see in the photo. When we got to the hospital, we were immediately taken into a room to start x-rays and an ultrasound. By the end of the night, we received the good news that Liam was going to be all right, and did not require surgery. In thanks for helping my son when he needed Boston Children's Hospital, I play for Extra Life. I raise funds for kids to get the help they need, when they need it. A couple of us from Front Row Geeks will be spending the day playing various games, but I will be playing competitive Overwatch, streaming on our Twitch page, and talking with all those who join me November 5th on our stream.

  9. As we draw closer to the start of 2016, we're already hard at work lining up events for the year. Some of the events we know so far are: Arisia (Jan) Boskone (Feb) Anime Boston (Mar) PAX East (Apr) Northeast Comic Con (Jun) I've also reached out the following cons to see if we can get a presence: MASSive Con (Jun) Walker Stalker Boston (Jul) TotalCon (Feb) So with that being out there, we should start looking to strengthen our forces. We need new blood. We have a great core of people working in the guild, however those core people need help. Can everyone take some time and look at your fellow extra life friends, maybe approach them about coming to our meetings, volunteering for some events. You all know your extra life friends, and you probably know which of them would be passionate about EL. Lets start networking those people into the guild. On top of the efforts to strengthen our team, we will be going through some leadership changes this year. More to come on that in the next few weeks. These changes are good, and we hope that some new leadership experience/insight will re-energize the group. Please, take some time, engage on here your thoughts of how we can strengthen and grow this team. Any incentives to keep guildies going, or efforts to retain guildies. Let hear it.. Lastly, THANK YOU again for everything and everyone that made 2015 a success. Let's do it all again in 2016 and do it bigger and better!!
