Update: Since we have surpassed our initial $300 goal and our new $400 goal I am upping the goal to $500. Let's do it guys!!!

Are you READY TO ROCK? For the 4th year in a row Kev and I are participating in the annual Extra Life fundraising event and we need your help! We're playing a 12 hour marathon to raise money for Dell Children's Medical Center, read on to learn more.


Last year we personally raised just under $300 playing a marathon of Heroes of the Storm. This year we hope to exceed that goal playing GUITAR HERO LIVE! We have some VERY SPECIAL giveaways for donations this year!


ANY Donation Amount - Song Request
Pick any song from the full list of Guitar Hero Live songs for us to play! Donate today and leave your request in the comments.

Guitar Hero Live bundles have arrived! 6 Bundles for Giveaway!

$5+ Donation - Entry to win Guitar Hero Live for PS4 & Xbox One!
That's right! The fine folks at Guitar Hero were kind enough to donate 6 copies of the game to us to give away (3 XBO, 3 PS4). Make a donation of $5 or more before November 7th, 11:59PM CST and be entered into a drawing to receive a FREE game and guitar bundle! When making your donation, please specify whether you want the XBO version, the PS4 version, or either. Best of all, you get 1 entry for every $5 you donate, so the more you give the more chances you have to win! (e.g. a donation of $25 would get you 5 entries!) We'd love you to join us on stream (twitch.tv/AkuBlossom) for the event on the 7th but if you can't make it don't sweat it - all you need to do to win is donate!

We will be drawing our 6 winners on November 8th. Good luck!!!

Playing for Dell Children's

Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few. And you can help! Last year Austin Extra Lifers raised $490,000 for Dell Children's - this was more than any other group of players in the United States and Canada! Those funds Austin gamers raised paid the balance of the $2.1 million Magnetoencephalograph machine (‘the MEG’). The MEG maps the brain for children with epilepsy, brain injuries, autism and more. This year we hope to raise even more money for new equipment at Dell Children's!

What is Extra Life?

Since 2010, Extra Life has raised more than $14 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care. It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a donation that will go directly to Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

We need your help to reach our goal For The Kids.  Please make a safe, easy donation online today.  Click the "Support This Participant" button on this page to get started.  Thank you so much for supporting our efforts!
