GameOn for Good: Leveling Up for a Cause

Team Captain Raleigh Retro Gamers Extra Life 2024

We are embarking on a year-long fundraising journey alongside our nationwide partners in 2024! Stay tuned as we unveil fresh incentives every few months to keep momentum going! 

How It Works

🎮 Join Us in Supporting Extra Life and Changing Lives! 🎮

Hey there, fellow gamers and kind-hearted souls!

We're thrilled to announce that we're teaming up for an amazing cause: Extra Life. For those unfamiliar, Extra Life unites gamers around the world to raise money for their local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. It's a fantastic opportunity to combine our passion for gaming with making a real difference in the lives of children who need it most.

But we can't do it alone – we need YOUR help!

Here's the deal: By donating to our fundraising efforts, you're not only contributing to a worthy cause, but you're also unlocking some seriously awesome incentives. We're talking exclusive perks, epic rewards, and the satisfaction of knowing you've helped kids in need.

🌟 Incentives Galore! 🌟
For anyone who donates between April 1st 2024 and June 31st 2024 will be available for these incentives!

  • Tier 1: Donate $5 and be entered to win Super Mario Bros Movie Swag. (Includes poster, grab bag, Nintendo merch, kids t-shirt, and pins)

  • Tier 2: Pledge $10 and be entered to win a pop culture collectible prize pack. (Includes a Funko pop, Pokémon Elite Trainer Box, and a sealed copy of Super Mario Bros Wonder.)

  • Tier 3: Contribute $20 and be entered to win an Atomic Purple Gameboy Color autographed by American cosplayer, actress, model, and video game vixen, Liz Katz.  

But wait, there's more! As we hit our fundraising milestones, we'll be unlocking even more exciting incentives and challenges. Whether it's smashing gaming goals, facing off against epic bosses, or even doing some embarrassing dares – we're up for the challenge if it means making a positive impact for these kids.

Our first BHAG goal is if someone donates $500, RRG board member Ryan McIntee is going to eat an insanely hot pepper while explaining a very complicated video game and film the shenanigans that ensues! 


So, what are you waiting for? Join us on this epic quest to raise funds for Extra Life and help us level up for a cause. Every dollar counts, and together, we can make a difference!
