You'll need something to broadcast your gaming! PC or console:
|Hardware||Streaming App||Streaming Platform/Website|
*embedding stream on your Extra Life participant page supported
Desktop/laptop extras to customize your stream

Once you have your device, streaming software/service and accounts setup, add your streaming username to your fundraising page by clicking Your Page, then clicking the pencil icon to edit. This allows you to stream to Twitch, Mixer and YouTube and have the stream directly embedded on your Extra Life page! Your donors can interact and chat with you AND donate with ease!
Here's the steps to connect your stream to your page
On extra-life.org. add your streaming username to your fundraising page & save – you're ready to go!
Share the link to your fundraising page through social media, text messages, your chatbot and email.
When you start streaming from your streaming software (Streamlabs OBS, OBS, Lightstream, XSplit) or console, your stream will appear on your fundraising page!

Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
On Game Day (Nov. 2nd), I will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!
What platforms will you be playing on?
I will have a PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and a 360 hooked up ready to go!
What are you playing
Right now my schedule (which is surely going to change) is as follows:
For anyone who knows what the Gameboy Macro is you will be please to know I'm raffling THREE macros off during this stream!
*If you do not pick a color I will randomly enter you for one. Alternatively if you don't care which color, then I'll just split your entries evenly across them.
**If you forget to forward your donation email I will still enter you based on your Extra-Life donation notification and contact you via the "Send thanks" button. But an email is much easier for me to work with.
Just enter the details in your notes! Any game requests you can stack by donating multiples if you so choose.
Note: A full list of games I own on steam is here: https://steamcommunity.com/id/atrainn/games/?tab=all any other games I may not own, I'll buy based on the price points below.
*Games must be easily attainable (eg: Epic Store, Steam, GOG, etc)
I have simply not had the time to build more Macro shells this year, but I want to raffle SOMETHING as a stretch goal, why not a Switch?! If we can hit $4000 I will raffle off a Switch and whatever game you want, provided it is $60 or less. There is no special process for this raffle. All of the existing $5 raffle entries will get entered into this. Why $4000? That is what we raised last year, so I'd certainly like to beat it!
I have a tentative plan for some games, I'll finalize a list soon!
