I ended up falling asleep 😴 after 22h40m of gameplay and could not complete my 25 hour marathon. I however did raise a record amount and I am so close to $10,000 so I am making up my missing time and hoping I can get a few more donations and challenges to reach the $10K level. I am playing from Tue Oct 20, 10:30am till 12:50pm. Please donate!
Welcome to Aaron Hui's Extra Life fundraising page. This year, I will be doing my 24-hour gaming marathon on Saturday, October 17, 2020 and it will be my 8th year doing this annual event. Once again, all donations of any amount on this website will be matched by at least $10. My #ExtraLifeChallenge donation bonuses will be making a return, as well additional bonus donations.
Due to COVID-19, BC Children’s Hospital Foundation was unable to raise as much as they hoped for in their signature events like Jeans Day, Race for the Kids, and Miracle Weekend. Extra Life is a fundraiser that should mostly avoid any issues caused by this pandemic. I’m really hoping I will be able to raise a record amount to make up for being under our target this year.
For 2020, I will be playing Dishonored 2. For those who have followed my past Extra Life fundraising, since the first year, I have played Dishonored before and I eventually finished the game during my 2017 Extra Life stream. I started Dishonored 2 back in 2018 and I hope to finish it this year. Please be advised that Dishonored 2 is a graphically violent game so viewer discretion is advised.
Please come back and visit this page on Saturday October 17 at 8 AM. My marathon will begin streaming from here and my YouTube channel at that time. Although most of my past Extra Life events have taken place on the official date of November 7, this year I am doing my marathon earlier for a few reasons. Last year, the official Extra Life website was attacked, which made the website inaccessible for a large portion of the event day. Hopefully, doing the event earlier would reduce the likelihood of encountering this problem. In addition, there is a limited prize incentive for the fundraisers who raise $5000. I am hoping to be one of the first 200 to do so to claim a prize incentive of this DXRacer gaming chair. Finally, last year Leanne did a great make-up session and outfit that would have been perfect for an event like Halloween. Holding my Extra Life marathon earlier in October will give me an opportunity to have something ready in time for this year's holiday. (More information on this year's themed outfit will be released closer to the event. Stay tuned!)

💰 Please donate by clicking on the donate button at the top of this page. Patsy Hui will donate an additional $10 for each unique donor.
You can choose between USD🗽 and CAD🍁 currencies when donating by credit card. PayPal only charges in USD.
There is an option to choose anonymous. However, if you do, I won't know who has donated. Please email me and let me know you made the anonymous donation which would be helpful to me.
Please note that the tax receipts are issued in the name specified for the Cardholder for credit card donations or under the PayPal account name if donated via PayPal.
Based on the amount you donate, you can challenge me to complete activities listed below. You may allocate your donation to multiple challenges. For example, if you donate $100 CAD, you may request one multiplayer match ($50), three Star Wars trivia questions (3 x $10 = $30) and add two dice to the Tower (2 x $10). The best way to send me the challenge is through the YouTube live chat during the event. However, when you make the donation, you can choose the option to send me a message where you can specify your challenges. You can also contact me via Skype (username: SurfWarrior), email or on Google Hangouts (aaronhui77 'at' gmail.com).
All prices below are in 🍁Canadian CAD🍁
Please send me suggestions. I will continue to add and adjust this list.
Patsy Hui is once again sponsoring my Extra Life event and will make bonus donations if I succeed or fail specific challenges. Last year, we raised a bonus of $1,017 from these challenges that go directly to help support sick kids!
More to come!
💣Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes💥 Challenge. Donate $50 and you can choose this challenge. Viewers from the YouTube live stream can help me defuse the in-game "bomb." Anyone can also help by typing into the Live Chat or by Skyping or calling in. The bomb defusal manual is available at http://www.bombmanual.com.
The game parameters will be 8 minutes to defuse a bomb with 5 random modules. Needy modules and hardcore mode are off. If we are unsuccessful in defusing a bomb, $10 will be added to bonus donations for each module within the bomb that is successfully deactivated. So if we happen to complete 4 of the 5 modules, $40 will be added.
Dog Race Challenge. 🐕 If I reach the stretch goal of $3000. I will race my dog Mina around the park (Live Skype broadcast. Total distance 1.1km from my front gate and back). A bonus donation will be made based on how fast I run: Donation amount = 2^(time in minutes - 8)*100. So if I complete the race in 7 minutes, I donate $50, 8 minutes = $100, and 9 minutes = $200. 8m30s = $141.42, etc.
If I raise these amounts prior to the Saturday October 17, 8 AM before any of the bonus donations, then the following will be unlocked. These amounts are in CAD.
$3000 – Dog Race Challenge 🏁🏃♂️🐕 (Scheduled for 1:30pm)
$4000 – Dishonored cosplay/make-up session 💄 (Scheduled for approximately 9:30pm-10pm)
$5000 – 25 hours (1 bonus hour) 🕑
$6000 – Auction of Extra Life gaming chair for additional donation revenue*
*Availability of this chair is limited so I may not be able to claim this.
I am open to suggestions for more stretch goals.
All staff who donate at least $10 will get at least one day of free parking. Click here for more information.
I'll be doing challenges on demand and will take a break from my current game as soon as it is convenient.
Social Media Bonus Donations
*Social Media bonus donations will be capped as follows and cut off by midnight on Saturday, October 17th. The donation will be made post-event by Patsy Hui.
