How to Participate

1) Sign up (or just donate) and join the CAG team

2) After you register, send out your personal link to your friends and family to get them to sponsor you. They will sponsor you a specific dollar amount x 24 hours, the length of the gaming marathon.

3) Post your individual page link in this thread and I'll add it to the master list below.

4) Extra Life begins at exactly 8:00 AM in your local timezone on Saturday, October 17th and ends at 8:00 AM in your local timezone on Sunday, October 18th. You now have an awesome excuse to play games all day!



About Extra Life


Extra Life is a 24-hour charity gaming marathon that aims to raise money to fight pediatric cancer. Extra Life is working in partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital and all funds are earmarked for the Texas Children’s Cancer Center.
It’s really easy to help out. All you have to do is sign up (and join the CAG team) at the Texas Children’s Hospital donation site for Extra Life. The site makes it easy to send out requests for donations to people you know. Those people donate and you get credit for obtaining the donation. On October 17th at 8am (in your local timezone) you just play games for 24 hours. It’s that simple. FAQ

I also didn't join, but made donations on behalf of my wife and I for both Cheapy and Wombat. I'll send the link around to see if my friends and family want to donate.

How about getting some Uncharted 2 multiplayer up on this joint?

Cheapy...I was trying to switch teams (don't tell my wife...I couldn't resist the Wombat style joke) from Sarcastic Gamer to CAG, but it doesn't look like I can do that. I will see if can create another account for the CAG team...thought I will only be able to do the $24, since I can't move the other money I have raised ;(

What are we playing??? Uncharted 2 multi... ODST Firefight...straight up Halo 3 multi...do I need to re-buy LFD?

Too short of a notice, Cheapy, plus I have plans on Sunday, but I'll sponsor you and Wombat. Maybe next year.

If it wasn't my weekend of recovery from being on-call at work I'd do it. As it is, I'll probably only be awake 8 hours on Saturday. Maybe next time the timing will work out better.

Cheapy is a bit late on the draw here though. Most game related sites I visit have had something about this up for a few weeks now.

I honestly don't think I could stay up 24 hours straight anymore...I feel old...and I don't get sleep during the week.

But anyway, I'll just play video games for a few hours and maybe donate some money :-P.

Well it is all honor system based, and they just ask that you at somepoint play your 24 hours of game-age(whether iits all at once is up to you). I'll do my best, but yeah 24 hours straight at my age with a baby in house, yikes.

It will be rough, but I plan on UStreaming the full 24 hours live to the internets so the people who donated can check up if they wish.

That and I will have friends with me playing.

Hey! Is there any penalty for joining and not raising a lot of money?
I'm a poor college student, and so are most of my friends. I would still love to try to raise like forty or fifty bucks, though.

One more question. Can somebody donate just like...$10 flat...without the whole $1 x 24 thing? I might be able to scrunch up a bunch of people who could donate...say...$5....but not $24.

As for the late posting, who cares. If you have already signed up on another team, good stuff, you are helping children and if not, here is another opportunity.

You can donate as much or as little as you wish.

Alright! I'm in! https://waystogive.t...munity/DrMunkee

Thanks, mate. I set my goal to the lowest it would let me, just in case I can't raise much. I'm assuming that once you reach your goal, it will still allow people to donate beyond that.

Well I'm set. Wife gave her approval.
Of course she wasn't to hard to convince, her 2 1/2 year old goddaughter is being treated there for leukemia.
So from her experience, I can say Texas Children's is a great place and they have taken great care of her.
Hopefully this fundraiser earns a lot for the hospital.

I have to echo this, I spammed my personal email list and my Dad donated. But, ended up donating to Cheapy D (David abrams) instead of Tiny (David Whelan).

Definitely a good laugh and it all goes to the same cause :)
