  1. Rooster Teeth has been one of Extra Life's biggest and longest running partners when it comes to streamers looking to do good. We are happy to share with all of you that they outdid themselves this year. Over the course of their stream, the Rooster Teeth team and community managed to raise over $1.2 million USD between donations and merchandise sales! They are well on their way toward hitting their specially LEET goal of $1,337,000 USD by the end of the year. The first $1 million raised went to Dell Children's Hospital with everything over that going to the kids at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. The Rooster Teeth team has committed to continue raising money for Dell Children's in the future. In the coming years, the team hopes to raise $3 million USD to continue adding new facilities and programs, like specialized mental health treatment options for kids, to the hospital's campus. In 2018, the team made headlines for their contributions leading to the construction of a healing garden, an outdoor play space for kids at Dell Children's. Their stream was absolutely bonkers, topping everything they've done before. Some of the highlights of the night include an honest-to-goodness dog show competition, roleplaying Harry Potter, and a plethora of disgusting and inedibly spicy "foods" being ingested. There was even a professional tattoo artist/Twitch Partner on hand in the form of Kappa Tattoo to give stream participants some ink! And, of course, professional WWE wrestler Xavier Woods was on hand to serve as the stream's Wheel Dragon, a creature born to spin wheels and mete out vengeance to those busy streaming. After a night of craziness and fun, Matt Hullum, Rooster Teeth's Chief Content Officer, came on the stream to close things out. In what is now a yearly RT Extra Life tradition, Hullum played guitar and sang, the rest of the crew joining him to sing "With a Little Help from My Friends." Rooster Teeth's streaming efforts were able to reach a huge swath of the Rooster Teeth community. To mirror the larger goal of $1,337,000 USD, the team put together a tier of elite donations priced at $1,337 USD. In total, the team saw 317 donations made at the elite tier. That left all of us blown away. Those who are interested in further supporting Rooster Teeth on their way to their elusive LEET goal still have options! From now until the end of the year, you can join the Rooster Teeth Super Team and play to support the overarching mission of Rooster Teeth as well as kids at your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. If you are looking to get your hands on some of Rooster Teeth's exclusive 2019 Extra Life merch to support the team, it was mostly sold out during the stream. However, Rooster Teeth has announced that they are planning to restock the store soon. As of right now, you can still purchase limited edition pins that will disappear forever once the fundraising push for 2019 comes to a close. Take a look at what's available on the Rooster Teeth store and check back in a few days to see if it has been restocked. Thank you to everyone who made Rooster Teeth's massive success possible. Extra Life wouldn't be the same without all of you. 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. People tend to struggle with their mental health during the winter months. Shorter days, colder nights, and inclement weather all come together to form a potent cocktail. Those environmental can all encourage isolation, lethargy, and deprive us of precious vitamin D, all of which place additional stress on an individual's mental health. No one is immune from a struggle with mental health, not even the kids who come into Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. From the leadership at the top of CMNH to the bottom along with the people we work with in the hospitals themselves, everyone who works for the kids cares about mental health and well-being of the kids who need help. We recognize that exercise, socializing, and getting enough sunlight isn't enough to address the underlying mental illnesses that both kids and adults face. Therapy is sometimes necessary. Other times, patients need medication to address the underlying physical aspects of mental illness. One of the people in the Extra Life community who has been one of the most vocal advocates for mental health issues is Rooster Teeth host, voice actress, and Extra Lifer Caiti Ward. She has taken on the role of a mental health advocate by using her platform to share her journey from the perspective of someone who lives with mental illness. Her efforts have given a human face to conditions that often leave those who struggle with mental health feeling othered. Writing about her experiences graduating from an intensive therapy program in 2015, Ward said the following: I know that mental illness unfortunately still has a giant, belittling stigma associated with it, but I also know that one day it won’t. I choose to pretend today is that day, so I’m sharing my graduation of group therapy with you, because I am so proud of myself. There's no shame in struggling with your thoughts and feelings - and no shame reaching out for help. Everyone needs a little help sometimes. Mental illness, particularly depression, unfortunately affects so many of our youth. That's why we are happy that leaders in the community like Ward can come together to help those struggling in their local areas. The Rooster Teeth team has spent several years raising money for Dell Children's Hospital in Austin. One of their crowning achievements thus far has been a massive contribution to the facilities mental health ward that resulted in the opening of The Rooster Teeth Healing Garden last year. Rooster Teeth's annual Extra Life stream will be this weekend on November 9th. Caiti Ward and the wonderful people on the team will be streaming for 24 hours to make sure that Dell Children's Hospital (and this year Children's Hospital of Los Angeles) will be able to keep helping kids heal their bodies and their minds. You can join their team or donate to their overall goal via their Extra Life page or by purchasing exclusive merch during the stream from store.roosterteeth.com.

  5. Each year, thousands of people descend upon Austin, Texas to experience RTX, a convention dedicated to the incredible Rooster Teeth community. It provides show-goers with an experience full of anime, games, and laughter. The event puts faces to the internet communities to combat the often isolating environment that the internet can foster. Of course, Extra Life had to be a part of the festivities, so last weekend we set up a booth and got to work for the kids. Rooster Teeth and Extra Life have a long-running partnership. Last year alone, the incredible Rooster Teeth community came together to raise over $1.4 million USD for kids across the country. That money makes a genuine difference in local communities. The Rooster Teeth team personally attended the opening of the Rooster Teeth Healing Garden, an outdoor recovery space for kids at Dell Children’s Medical Center made possible by the Rooster Teeth team’s fundraising efforts. The passion of the people who make RTX possible to help was tangible during our time there. The fine folks behind RTX were kind enough to provide us space to set up a booth and talk with their amazing community. Things got a bit goofy when Rooster Teeth’s Wheel of Vengeance (who could forget the time Elyse broke it?) was brought over to give RTX attendees the unique experience of feeling the silly spirit of vengeance for themselves. Rooster Teeth's own Barbara Dunkleman came by to support the booth! The people attending RTX readily embraced Extra Life. We were, and still are, blown away by how welcoming and receptive everyone was to our presence at the show. We were able to talk with so many friendly attendees and make meaningful connections. However, we still weren’t expecting to sign up over 350 people for Extra Life 2019 while living our best lives at RTX. That’s a frankly astounding number! Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by and showed their support for us and for the kids. A special thank you to Rooster Teeth for giving us the space to meet their community. You are all making such a big difference in the lives of kids in the hospitals near you. Let’s go forward together and keep fighting… For the Kids! View full article

  7. Staying mentally healthy can be a difficult task. The stresses and struggles of modern life often require people sacrifice their mental health just to keep up with day-to-day living. While often people think of adults confronting mental illness, children are often dismissed as just “going through a phase” when they are facing down an oncoming mental crisis. As many as one in five children under 17 have a diagnosable mental disorder according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thankfully, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Extra Life’s amazing community are helping to build the facilities necessary for treating those kids. One of the biggest mental health projects accomplished by the fundraising of dedicated Extra Lifers definitely goes to Rooster Teeth’s efforts with Dell Children’s Medical Center in central Texas. The Rooster Teeth community rallied around the hospital to raise over $3 million over three years to fund the creation of the Rooster Teeth Healing Garden, a space for kids to play outside while still receiving the care they need. Brandy Hart, a clinical administration officer at Dell Children’s Medical Center explained the importance of the space, saying: “We know that being in a hospital for several days is not ideal. You’re removed from family and friends and often need an outlet. We treat kiddos as young as six and everyone needs physical activity. Research also shows that physical activity helps with dealing with stresses, mental illnesses, so [having access to] that space is amazing. […] It really shows that we can have a holistic approach to mental healthcare and not just what is within the walls of the hospital.” Extra Lifers support far more than just Dell Children’s, however. Hospitals across the United States and Canada are able to better provide for the mental health of kids coming through their doors. Here are just a few of the exciting things going on at a handful of the hospitals Extra Lifers fight for every year. Alberta A new mental health center for children and adolescents has been revealed. The building is set to be built in Calgary to provide walk-in services, community treatment, and a day hospital for the surrounding area. The center has been designed to provide a balance of architecture and natural space all specifically geared toward children. The construction will begin later this fall and the building will begin offering care to children starting in 2019. Colorado Suicide has become a huge problem facing the children of Colorado. In fact, it has become the leading cause of death for children aged 10-14. The state’s children are facing a crisis in mental health, but many who live there can’t get access to care. The Pediatric Mental Health Institute at Children’s Colorado wants to change that. The goal of the program is to add beds, provide education for parents and kids about mental health, reach out to kids in rural communities, and redesign parts of the hospital to better accommodate mental health needs. Ontario Toronto is home to The SickKids Centre for Brain & Mental Health, a facility and program that helps to identify and treat mental health disorders. Many of the difficulties brought on by mental illnesses, especially those in children, can be alleviated by early detection and beginning treatment as soon as possible. The center helps to reach out across the communities of Ontario, bringing specialized care into schools and hospitals across the province. Detecting and providing care for infant strokes, autism, epilepsy, and more are important parts of the center. It also conducts research to help both children and adults, paving the way for a healthier mental future. --- Attitudes regarding mental health, especially when it comes to children, are beginning to shift. People across the world are learning that a sizable number of people, both big and small, need mental health help. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so please join Extra Life in making a difference for the kids and families who seek help at your local children’s hospital.

  9. Rooster Teeth was honored with the naming of a mental health healing garden at the children’s hospital it has pledged to raise $3M. Rooster Teeth raised $1.2 million for Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas with Extra Life in 2017. Through the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals digital fundraising platform, fans donated more than $770,000 which Rooster Teeth matched in addition to donated funds from merchandise sales. To recognize this pledge to raise $3 million, Dell Children’s is naming its new healing garden in its mental health wing in honor of the Austin based company. This is the first naming opportunity for a CMN Hospitals program at the children’s hospital. 1 in 5 children ages 13-18 have or will have a serious mental illness which includes mood disorders, anxiety disorders and developmental disorders like autism spectrum disorder. The garden will be a part of a unit at Dell Children’s that includes 24 beds as well as an intensive outpatient program. To all of the fans, friends and family that have supported Rooster Teeth in their Extra Life endeavors over the years, thank you! You are making a difference to sick and injured kids at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

  11. It might seem an obvious choice to write a blog with the intent of “giving thanks” as we wrap up the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States last week, but when you're fortunate enough to have a community like the Extra Life community, we feel it’s an honor and privilege to do so. You see, a couple weeks ago, we witnessed something happen in the Extra Life community that we had a hard time even imagining. We watched a single Extra Life team raise over $1 million #ForTheKids… in 24-hours. In fact, we watched them raise over $1.2 million! Team Rooster Teeth, led by the fearless Jack Pattillo and Caiti Ward, hosted their 7th Extra Life marathon over the years, full of antics and crazy shenanigans, to raise money for children and their families who desperately need your support. To simply state that we’re thankful for Jack Pattillo, Caiti Ward and everyone over at Rooster Teeth team would be grossly understating who they are and the role they’ve played in growing the Extra Life community to become a force for good for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2010, Rooster Teeth has enlisted nearly 11,000 of their fans into the Extra Life community and together, have raised an astonishing $3.5+ million dollars for 155 different Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (that’s just over 90% of our member hospitals) across the US and Canada. You can understand that when we see someone use #RTEXTRALIFE, we know they’re serious about playing games and healing kids. We know that the Rooster Teeth gang does some pretty, well, unorthodox things for donations. But this year we wanted to be sure note this ultimate “awwww cute” highlight. The Rooster Teeth community is in it for the long haul as the company has pledged to raise $3 million for Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, TX to help pay for a new mental health wing so kids with mental illnesses will have a special place to be treated. The new mental health wing at Dell Children’s will have a healing garden that provides a place for the kids to play, relax and recharge during their stay and treatment in the hospital and will be properly named the “Rooster Teeth Healing Garden”! As we recall the time spent with family and friends last week we are reminded of the love and enthusiasm that powers Extra Life. We are grateful for Rooster Teeth, Jack, Caiti and the thousands of people who’ve watched, shared, participated and donated to Extra Life, supporting and improving the lives of families in their own and other’s communities. This love and enthusiasm that powers Extra Life continues to amaze all of us here at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. On behalf of our hospitals and kids receiving treatment and care, thank you.

The Rooster Teeth community is in it for the long haul as the company has pledged to raise $3 million for Dell Children’s Hospital in Austin, TX to help pay for a new mental health wing so kids with mental illnesses will have a special place to be treated. The new mental health wing at Dell Children’s will have a healing garden that provides a place for the kids to play, relax and recharge during their stay and treatment in the hospital and will be properly named the “Rooster Teeth Healing Garden”! As we recall the time spent with family and friends last week we are reminded of the love and enthusiasm that powers Extra Life. We are grateful for Rooster Teeth, Jack, Caiti and the thousands of people who’ve watched, shared, participated and donated to Extra Life, supporting and improving the lives of families in their own and other’s communities. This love and enthusiasm that powers Extra Life continues to amaze all of us here at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. On behalf of our hospitals and kids receiving treatment and care, thank you. Mike, Liz, Lou & Jeromy Team Extra Life Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
  13. Super Teams are HERE! We are very excited to announce the launch of Super Teams! This new feature presents a way for incredibly large, user-driven teams like Twitch or Rooster Teeth to give their communities more identity and tools to mobilize more effectively. “What are Super Teams?” I hear you ask. Good question! Basically, a Super Team is one large team composed of many smaller teams. You can kind of think of it as the Extra Life equivalent of inception, except, you know, with teams. Team-ception! We are rolling out Super Teams for the following community partners during the initial test run: (Currently with 659 players and 48 sub-teams) (Currently with 260 players and 16 sub-teams) (Currently with 139 players and 1 sub-team) (Currently with 128 players and 18 sub-teams) This new form of team will help large teams break up into more personalized sub-teams while remaining under the umbrella of their organization and contributing to the collective Super Team fundraising goal. For example, if you were feeling lost in the crowd as part of a massive team like Reddit last year, you can now create your own sub-team within the Reddit Super Team or join a specific subreddit sub-team (and then eat a delicious sub sandwich). We see Super Teams as a win for both our larger community partners and the Extra Lifers within those extensive communities who can now organize more effectively in their social circles. The new team structure aims to facilitate community building on a larger scale than was possible for the incredibly massive teams that have participated in years past. Want to Join a Super Team? If you are wondering how to get involved in a sub-team, creating or joining one couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is head over to one of the Super Team pages and browse the existing sub-teams or click the ‘Create a Sub-Team’ button to start the process. If you have no interest in the sub-teams and just want to join the Super Team’s core team, that’s still a valid option, too! If you’ve already created a team and want to merge it into an existing sub-team, fill out this form and we’ll have your team moved over as soon as we can. Looking toward 2017 and beyond, Super Teams will be an option available to community partners. We have a vision of Super Teams uniting major companies and industry giants across the United States and Canada to harness their reach for the kids in hospitals who can’t help themselves. Comment below and tell us what Super Teams you would like to see join!

  18. Gaming for Good: How gamers are changing their world for the better. Popular media portrayals of gamers and the gaming industry are usually filled with images of misguided youth and social outcasts engaged in a violet, hyper-sexualized subculture that is creating an introverted and narcissistic society. In truth gamers are a mainstream force for good; raising tens of millions of dollars each year for a variety of causes. And they show no signs of slowing down. Join Extra Life founder, Jeromy Adams and Community Manager Rick Heaton for an informative session on how Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through their Extra Life program have tapped into this incredibly caring and compassionate community to raise funds for sick and injured children throughout the U.S and Canada. RTX 2015 Saturday August 8 @ 11:30AM HILTON Room 406 500 E. 4th Street, Austin TX 78701 Please note: an RSVP here does not guarantee entry. Seating is first come, first served. This is only for our own reference.
