As some may recall, last October I took donations to sponser me as I gamed for 24 hours straight. The proceeds went to a childrens hospital inside the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] of hospitals. I chose for my donations to go to one of the hospitals in my area.

I had never really set out to play games for so long. Im sure I have come close in just casual play. The challenge seemed interesting. The cause was good. I took my donations, exceeded my goal some thanks to some of you here, and started my run.
It was a blast, and I told myself I had found a new tradition. At the time, there were talks of setting up a Sixth Nation team for the 2012 event.
I have done just that. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is a link to the team page. There is a button on the right hand side that says JOIN THIS TEAM.
Click that to get in. I set our goal low. In fact, it is under what I raised alone. Together I am sure we can not only exceed it....but set a new standard for ourselves next year.

To keep to our very own theme of world wide gaming community, this year I have chosen to have the teams proceeds sent to the
Children’s Hospital for Wales in the UK. Next year, we will pick a different location. If you join, and get to select a location, please choose this same one. You can, if you want, select one close to you, but I like the idea of the community working together to help one place at a time.

WHEN: October 20, 2012 @ 8am (Or choose a date that works for your schedule)

WHERE: Anywhere you like to game (Most people play from home!)

GAME/PLATFORM: Play any games on any platforms you want including mobile devices!

HOW IT WORKS: Simply ask your friends and family to sponsor your efforts. They can make a monthly pledge or a one-time gift. Then, have a seat and play games on October 20th.

WHO IT BENEFITS: Gamers select the children's hospital they want to play for during registration. In the US and Canada there are more than 170 CMN Hospitals to choose from. Players may also choose to play for hospitals in the UK and Australia.


Please donate or join. Or hey, maybe even both. This is a great cause.

I can't afford to donate myself, but I'd certainly play if possible. A measly 24 hours? You insult me, sir! Razz

Newbie Questions:
How does this work, exactly?
How can we prove how much we've played, etc.?
Do we sign up and hope someone sponsors us?
Does it have to be consecutive? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would have to do other things like work on that day. If so, how can we contribute?

Btw, is it the 10th or 20th of October? This says 10th (a Wednesday) but the Team Page says 20th (a Saturday).

I'm definitely interested in helping if I can, but I'd appreciate the low down from someone who's been through it all before.

1. You don't have to prove anything to Extra Life. In fact you don't even have to really play, but what fun is there in that? The real work is acquiring donations. If you want to let those whom sponsored you know you have kept to your word you can do something like I did last year and post updates here or on another social media site of your choosing. If anyone has vid cap...that can be used to.

2.After signing up, it is on you the player to go get those donations. I was able to hit my goal just working here and on FB. If we get enough of us involved, we can be all over the web. Just drop the link to your player profile or our team page to anyone and they can donate right there with the click of a button.

3.No. In fact, it doesn't even have to be on the same day which is what I may have to do this year myself. In the spirit of the actual event the goal is to try 24 straight. But as long as you play 24 hours you can bit and bob them out all you want. It does not have to be consecutive.

4. October 20th

Yes. Just bug your real life friends and family enough. They can donate any dollar amount they want. From one dollar to a hundred. There is no minimum or max requirement for a donation. Every dollar adds up.

I thought I joined the team, but it doesn't list me as a participant.
Will it not until I get a donation?

Well, gang. We've passed our initial goal with only three participants!
...
How much further can we go? How much more good can we do if you all join up?
Go sponsor the team, or sign up to play yourselves.
Get out there and help some sick kids!

Just to let you all know, I had an idea.
That is all.
...
What? Do I have to spell it out for you? *sigh* Fine. Rolling Eyes Razz

Let's get the audience a bit more involved here, eh?
If you donate, you can pick what I play. If I've got it, I'll play it.
Already selected are Mario Kart and Wild Arms, but I won't be spending the whole time on those. So go drop a buck or two and you can decide what it is that gets played.

Perhaps we can even get the Nation Team together on this? Play an hour of Black Ops/Gotham City Imposters/Borderlands/LBP under certain restrictions? Melee only? No jumping? Sure, why not?
Get involved and help some sick kids, folks!

You will also have to play it in a certain way. Like upside down or something. Reasonable stuff anyway.

$302 and climbing.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]




Good work everyone. Im really looking forward to this years event. We should start planning some get togethers for the day/night. Even if you haven't joined the team, you can help by playing along side them when time allows. I can say it makes a big difference when you start to a wall now and again. 24 hours is a long run to make alone.
With friends, the time kind of flies.

Thinking

I probably dont share too many games with most everyone any longer. Maybe we can post up a small and basic list of what games we have, or an itinerary of sorts?

Considering this is on the 20th, a Saturday and a friend of mine who may be getting the internet connected up to his home today, I'll just take the time off work and head down to his with the telly and the PS3 for a few hours.

Hopefully he gets it today, cause he has being wanting it a long while himself to get online and play the DC Universe Game and even telling me to come down to his and get set up so I can play online in his too, so there shouldn't be any issue with me using his internet.

I'll let you know later when he has it and will confirm that my one day return will be with thee.
