I am excited to participate in my 4th year of Extra Life. This year, I will start streaming at 8 am on 11/2 and will end at 7 am 11/3. I will be adding more details and a detailed schedule as time gets closer and I talk to my friends who will be joining me. I will be also posting my gaming links, this years discord, and shout outs to all the generous donators. So please check back often!
Year 1 I set a goal of $300 and raised $330. Year 2 I set a goal of $900 and raised $1,310! Year 3 I set a goal of $500 and raised over $800. It is really astonishing to see the support each year and I just can not thank everyone enough. This year I do want to set the bar a bit higher again and see if we can hit the $1000 mark again.
What really drew me to this event was the opportunity to do something I truly enjoy for a great cause, and the fact that anyone can participate. You don't have to be good at any kind of game, which I prove all the time, to participate! And with this event your not just a good guy in the game saving lives, you get to in a way help save lives in the real world. Anyone can be the hero with this event! I invite you all to in your own way participate, be it by; join the event yourself, join a team, donating, sharing my page/posts/stream, and spreading word about the event.
We will be streaming for 24 hours straight! Starting November 2nd, 2018 at 8 AM CST until 7 AM on November 3th! The bulk of the details will be updated as game day draws closer. The tentative schedule is posted below the Extra Life video. This is a rough plan for the day, and times/games may change.
This year will be a lot like last year, as we will not be doing a table top game and will be doing all online PC/Console games. I invite you to join us in any of the games if you have them. In the links section I posted information on how to add me on steam and blizzard, along with joining our special discord channel for this event!
