  1. TwitchCon has come and gone leaving all of us with unforgettable memories and marking some impressive achievements for the Extra Life community. Thousands of TwitchCon attendees descended upon the San Diego Convention Center and were exposed to Extra Life. Hundreds flocked to the booth and the human claw machine to sign up to support their local hospital. It was an incredibly moving experience that left everyone involved with memories that will last for years to come. The Human Claw Machine represented a major part of Extra Life's presence at TwitchCon 2019. A giant contraption capable of lifting attendees and lowering them into a pit full of mystery prizes, it definitely drew a crowd of both experienced Extra Lifers and curious newbies. One of the people who stopped by was Ryan from Flocker.tv, one of Extra Life's sponsors. Ryan has five years of Extra Life under his belt and raises funds for The Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, a place that gave him a life-saving heart surgery when he was a kid. He was one of the people who helped make Extra Life North a resounding success, too! While we were at TwitchCon, it was an honor for our Community Director, Lou Adducci, to appear as a guest in an interview on Cheddar Esports, a live gaming news show that airs on Twitch. You can catch the segment on Twitter and hear Lou talk about how amazing The Human Claw Machine is in person. As part of a collaboration with Astro Gaming, Extra Life gave away codes for Astro's line of headsets. Winners were sent emails with codes and a link to use when redeeming the headsets online. If you were one of the lucky winners and are having trouble with either receiving your code or its redemption, our support team has a few steps to follow: If you won and haven't been able to locate your code, check your spam folder. Unfortunately, some of our notifications to winners have gotten stuck in the spam folder. If the code hasn't been caught by the spam filter, please reach out via email to support@extra-life.org. We'll have someone look into your issue as fast as we can. If you have your code and are encountering difficulty in redeeming your prize, support@extra-life.org should be your go-to solution. In your email, include the email address you gave to the redemption kiosk, the code in question, the URL they are using to redeem their prize, and a description of the issue. Thank you to all of our partners for helping us to give our community an unforgettable TwitchCon experience and bring even more people to the cause. It was incredible seeing everyone working together to bring Extra Life to as many people as possible. Let's keep going forward and gaming 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! View full article

  3. E3 always pushes the boundaries of gaming. New technology hits the show floor alongside the games every year, and this year Extra Life brought an innovation of its own to get everyone talking about helping the kids. In a first for both E3 and Extra Life's booth, the show featured a massive Human Claw Machine capable of lifting participants up and lowering them in to a huge pit filled with prizes donated by our amazing partnerships. As eager gamers stood in line for a chance to win unique prizes, the booth was staffed by volunteers to tell them all about the story of Extra Life and the good it does in the world. A Human Claw Machine-sized thank you to GameStop Gives, without whom it would have been impossible to leave such a lasting impression on the nearly 70,000 attendees at E3. Over three days, thousands of people lined up for hours for their chance to be lowered into a huge pit of prizes and walk home with a special memento. People won everything from gaming chairs to full on consoles. While all the prizes were awesome, there was one ultimate prize that everyone wanted – A custom Xbox One wrapped in a Philadelphia 76er’s skin, paired with a 76er’s jersey, packed in a pelican case signed by FaZe Clan and Trey Smith. Staci from the Extra Life team announced to the large crowd, many who had waited up to two hours for their turn on the claw, that she held the special prize box in her hands. She then dramatically tossed it into the pit filled with hundreds of other identical boxes. The crowd went wild, each speculating on where they thought it landed. You could practically feel the excitement in the crowd. Trey Smith personally came by the Human Claw Machine to see if the Xbox winner would emerge. A few people harnessed into the machine for their turn, eager to try to find the Xbox special prize box, but they were unable to do so. Then, it was Ron Lyons’ turn. Ron had made the journey out to E3 from Detroit and seemed hopeful that he might be the one to pull the console from the pit. The crowd cheered him on as he was helped from his wheelchair into the harness. As the machine lowered him down, he began reaching for various boxes. People started yelling out suggestions, “no, no, go left!" Yes! That’s the one!” The Human Claw Machine pulled Ron up, his mystery box firmly in hand. Many thought he might have found the right box, but no one knew for sure until the moment of truth. After he was safely disentangled from the harness and back in his wheelchair, Ron opened the box. Inside he found the special Xbox certificate! Everyone exploded in cheers, and Trey eagerly ran to great Ron. Both men beamed with pride. Thanks to the Human Claw Machine, not only did Ron win a once-in-a-lifetime prize, but this story has left a lasting impression on people across the internet. Because of Ron and everyone who came out to Extra Life's booth, countless more people have now learned the story of Extra Life’s life-saving work. If you haven’t yet, we encourage you to sign up to participate in Extra Life this year. If you are looking for a team to join or just want to make a contribution, be sure to check out Team Allison. Allison’s team will be dedicating June 22-23 to play games and bring in donations from supporters and friends. Maybe even a friend like you?
