Extra Life 2023


The Drive for $100k

This year will mark a major milestone for me! Over the last 12 years I've raised over $90,000 for the IWK Foundation through Extra Life. This year we aim for $100,000, and I know with your help we'll do it!

I've got multiple stream events planned to celebrate this momentous occasion throughout the year, with milestones based on fundraising totals and stream themes from early on in my Extra Life career! Check out descriptions below! 

As always, thank you so much for your generous donations. I know we'll hit this high in 2023!

Milestone 1 - UNLOCKED

My first Extra Life marathon took place in 2011, where I managed to raise $770 while playing games on my beloved Sega CD. This year, $770 will unlock a Let's Play stream series for the Sega CD classic, Snatcher. 

Milestone 2 - LOCKED

In 2012 I raised $1,539.84 while playing through one of my favourite games of all time - Lunar: The Silver Star. This year, milestone 2 will unlock a Let's Play stream series of Lunar. I'm looking forward to re-experiencing the game again with all of you!

Milestone 3 - LOCKED

In 2013 I raised a whopping $2,326.01. This year, milestone 3 will unlock a Let's Play stream series of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. 

Milestone 4 - LOCKED

In 2014 my theme was Sega Retro, and I raised $3,491.01. This year, Milestone 4 will unlock a Let's Play stream series of Magic Knight Rayearth for the Sega Saturn. 

Milestone 5 - LOCKED

In 2015 I'd just received my Retron 5, and had donors request any game the system could play. In honour of this, when we raise $5,389.85 this year, I'll begin a Let's Play stream series of Gargoyle's Quest for the Nintendo Game Boy. 

Milestone 6 - LOCKED

In 2016 I busted out the trusty ol' NES for my charity marathon. We raised $8,041.34, and I remember breaking down in tears when that final donation came in, as I was so sure that $8k was an impossible goal for my little channel. This year, Milestone 6 will trigger a Let's Play stream series of Final Fantasy in honour of that amazing moment. 

Milestone 7 - $100K - LOCKED

As of Jan 1 we need to raise $8,240.48 in order to have collected $100,000 total for the IWK Foundation over the course of my years participating in Extra Life. I am so excited to hit this amazing number. Stay tuned to this space for further description of this milestone reward!
