Extra Life 2018

Dear Friends, Family, and Followers:

We're on a mission to save kids and we need your help. Our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals all around Cascadia treat 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.

We'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's on November 3rd and 4th! Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $22 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitable care. It's our sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support our efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to one of our hospitals.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids. All of it. Every last bit of it!

We'll be playing games, streaming, and raffling off all sorts of prizes from collectibles to videogames, as well as some priceless items during the Extra Life event from noon on November 3rd to noon on November 4th, 2018! That's 25 hours...FOR THE KIDS.

You can follow us on Twitter at @CascadianGamers for all the latest information!


For every donation through anyone on the Cascadian Gamers team, you'll get raffle tickets entered into our drawings. Those tickets remain until they're drawn, so you have tons of chances to win! As the date gets closer, we'll announce prizes, links to our streams, and so on! You can follow us on Twitter at @CascadianGamers for all the latest information! We'll be updating this post with information about the SuperMegaRaffle(tm) as we get closer to the event!

We have TWO raffle tiers this year! $10 and $50 tickets! The $10 prize pool is packed with hundreds of items, such as games, and much, much more! The $50 prize pool has some AMAZING prizes, such as autographed items from some of your favorite soccer players, unique once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and some surprise items to be announced as we get closer to the day of the event!

In addition to the awesome Sounders, Timbers, and Whitecaps prizes, we have a few additional categories to choose from this year!

- Donate $11.38 and let us know to enter into the raffle for a cosplay-quality Clan Wren helmet from Mandalorian Arsenal, all sanded and ready for you to prime and paint!

- Donate $25 and let us know to enter into the raffle for one of two $250 gift certificates to be tattooed by Brynn at Fortune Tattoo in Portland!

- We also have prizes in the Tabletop RPG and Retro gaming categories! Let us know if you'd like to be eligible for those prizes!

When you donate, please use the encouraging message field to tell us how you'd like to break up your tickets! (You can make the message private, if you prefer.) If you don't let us know how you'd like to break up your tickets, we're going to make them all $10 tickets and enter you into the categories we THINK you’d like most! 

If you're a supporter or fan of the Sounders, Timbers, or Whitecaps, please let us know! (We can't award some of these prizes to opposing fans. Sorry!) If you don’t let us know which category you fall under, you won’t be eligible for team-specific prizes!

Also, if you don't want to be considered for soccer-related prizes, or any of the above categories, let us know. If you don't want any raffle tickets, you can also let us know that, too! Your donation is super-appreciated!!
