  1. Popular streamer and 2019 Extra Life Ambassador Apocalypto_12, AKA Tyler Scheid, just learned about Extra Life this year. Tomorrow, he will be launching a 12-hour stream marathon to support Cincinnati Children's Hospital. At his side will be Wade Barnes, better known as LordMinion777, who ran his own streaming marathon for Extra Life earlier this year. Scheid has a history with Cincinnati Children's Hospital. When he was 2 years old, he was diagnosed and treated there by the caring staff. This weekend, he wants to give back to the institution that helped him as a kid. Earlier this year, Tyler attended Extra Life United and it really opened his eyes to how the organization helps support hospitals and kids all across the US and Canada. He was able to meet some of the kids and feel how Extra Life has worked in their lives to help them live full and happy lives. While explaining why its important to him that he get involved with Extra Life, Scheid said, "As a kid, you don't know any different, and now they get to do everything that they originally couldn't." ASUS and Republic of Gamers both contributed to the stream infrastructure, providing all of the PCs and peripherals that will be used throughout the day tomorrow. This includes everything from the headsets and keyboards to the mouse pads. This sort of support always blows us away, so thank you to both Asus and Republic of Gamers for stepping up like that to help someone raising money for the kids. The stream itself has a robust slate of activities in store for its entire 12 hour duration. Starting at 19am EST tomorrow on Twitch, You can expect to see Apocalypto_12 and LordMinion777 playing Switch and PC games, some surprise guests, and a hilarious twist on bobbing for apples that includes creative punishments. On top of that, champion kids Allison, Calvin, and Cole will be attending the stream to play games with Tyler and Wade as well as give the duo interviews about their experiences at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. There might even be special interview segments from their recent visit to Cincinnati Children's Hospital with nurses and doctors who had a hand in Tyler's treatment as a child. If all of that isn't enough of an exciting incentive on its own, there are also prizes and mystery incentives! Tyler has a goal of $20,000 USD and has something special planned for every $1,000 USD he raises toward that goal. What exactly those things might be, you will have to tune in to see! On top of that, Gamestop has graciously provided Apocalypto_12's stream with $400 USD in gift cards to give away throughout the day. The crowning prize, however, will be a brand new Nintendo Switch provided to Tyler by Nintendo. Finally, we want to give a huge thank you to DonorDrive. Located perfectly in Cincinnati, Donor Drive donated space in their headquarters for the stream itself. It puts smiles on all of our faces knowing we have partners who can help out Extra Lifers looking to do good in the world. It's never too late to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games! Donations for 2019 are accepted year-round!

  3. With the rise of digital streaming platforms, the Extra Lifers who participate in fundraising efforts on Game Day and beyond have become incredibly visible and shaped the way that people think about Extra Life. However, Extra Life is more than just streaming! We have a large and passionate community that exists in spaces that are left out of the streaming world by choice or technical limitations. If you're looking to up your fundraising game without streaming, here are several ideas that will make your efforts to help your kids in your community successful. Make the First Donation to Your Page This first point might raise a few eyebrows. When it comes to fundraising, momentum is important. Participants who already have a donation, even if it is from themselves, are more easily able to attract future donations. In fact, making the initial donation yourself before any fundraising effort is so effective that, according to our friends at DonorDrive who have crunched the numbers, people who self-donate are likely to raise 10 times more than those who don't. Join D&D Adventurers League This should be of interest to the tabletop gamers in our community: Participating in Extra Life fundraising can help you earn rewards at the table in Dungeons & Dragons' Adventurers League! Adventurers League helps new people to learn how to play D&D while providing high-quality, regulated adventures for players of all skill levels. Since Wizards of the Coast began working with Extra Life several years ago, many local Adventurers League events have offered ways to earn in-game items or a re-roll of the dice via charitable donations. This year, Adventurers League is offering extended Liars Night (the name of their month-long Halloween event) festivities to everyone who has donated to a fundraising page on the Extra Life website, bought a re-roll ticket that benefited Extra Life, or otherwise helped in local fundraising efforts. This will extend the spooky celebration through November 7th, allowing more time for players to fight Wandering Monsters through Game Day and beyond. Defeating those monsters earns in-game candy corn that can be used for unique, holiday-related items. Download the Apps A reminder to download the apps might cause some to roll their eyes. However, if everyone in the Extra Life community downloaded and made the attempt to use the Mobile Fundraising Apps, Extra Life would be able to raise another $1 million USD for the kids! Set Up a $1 Donation Playlist One of the most creative unstreamed fundraising efforts we have encountered is a sponsored cross-country road trips. This involves an Extra Lifer soliciting $1 USD donations per song suggestion to construct a playlist of music they must listen to during their journey. Community member Rich Moser recently put this tactic to the test on a journey from Pittsburgh to Phoenix. "People could choose songs, ANY song, by donating $1 per song," explained Rich. "If my math is right, I raised $614 by doing this! [There were] so many great and terrible songs that I had to keep the playlist playing for a day or so after we got here in order to complete it!" If you want to take a gander at Rich's playlist, here’s the link (be warned some songs are NSFW). Launch a Facebook Fundraiser One of the features on Facebook that has gained traction over the years has been giving users on the social media site the ability to create fundraisers for causes near and dear to their hearts. This feature has raised over $1 billion USD since it was launched back in 2015. Due to a recent update to Extra Life's website, it has never been easier to create a Facebook Fundraiser. Through your account page on Extra Life's main website, you will have a small button that streamlines the fundraiser creation process with clear prompts to help you connect your Extra Life account with your Facebook. Once the process is complete, any donations to your Facebook fundraiser will be reflected in your fundraising total on Extra Life! On average, people who create Facebook Fundraisers raise $150 USD from the effort. If everyone in the Extra Life community created one, our fundraising totals for 2019 would be mind-boggling! Host a Classic Game Night If streaming isn't your thing, consider throwing a game night for your friends or community. Game nights are a classic way to get people engaged with your fundraising efforts, especially if it's a laid back, less formal event. Dust off the Rock Band or Guitar Hero controllers, grab a few board games, your tabletop dice, whatever will help everyone have a great time. The flexibility of fundraising during an occasion like this depends on your imagination. Ideas to raise money for the kids range from a $10 donation to attend the festivities to micro-donations to turn the tide of various games from Super Smash Bros. to Monopoly. The key is for everyone to walk away having had fun and armed with the knowledge that they helped kids in their communities. What are the most fun fundraising ideas with no streaming required that you have come up with? Share with us in the comments! Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  5. Tomorrow, thousands will descend upon the San Diego Convention Center for TwitchCon, the streaming platform's yearly celebration of its talented and creative community. TwitchCon 2019 will take place September 27-29. Extra Life will be there representing the best the gaming community can offer in the DonorDrive Charity Arcade. DonorDrive provides a platform to power the most used charity streaming programs. At this year's TwitchCon, they have partnered with the convention to create a space for attendees to learn about how they can raise funds for the charities that are nearest and dearest to their hearts. As part of the DonorDrive Charity Arcade, Extra Life will be at TwitchCon to show everyone how to harness streaming to support sick and injured kids in their local hospitals. As part of the draw to Extra Life's area of the show floor, one of our most popular booth attractions will be make a reappearance: The Human Claw Machine! With prizes donated by sponsors from across the industry, attendees will be able to line up and strap in to be dunked into a giant pit of awesome and mysterious prizes. The device drew record numbers to Extra Life's booth at this year's E3, so we figured we'd break it back out for TwitchCon 2019! "This year, we will bring our human claw machine to TwitchCon 2019 in the DonorDrive Charity Arcade," said Extra Life's Managing Director Mike Kinney. "TwitchCon attendees can try their luck for free loot as they are harnessed onto a crane-like device and dipped into a pit of games, collectibles and gaming accessories from several of our sponsors and partners." TwitchCon 2019 will be one of the biggest events Twitch has ever thrown. Lil Nas X will headline the show while attendees enjoy their favorite streamers appearing in gaming tournaments, educational talks, and open panel discussions that will tackle a variety of topics. There will also be a significant floor presence for merchandise, meet-and-greets, and convention specific events. It's going to be a fantastic time and we really hope that we'll be seeing you stop by the Extra Life booth in the DonorDrive Charity Arcade to say hello and give the Human Claw Machine a try! Let's keep pushing on toward Game Day together, For The Kids. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!
