Who are you making eligible to win? Just the current CAG team members who donated over a certain amount? If that is the case then you need to look at how many people will be eligible. If it is only for people that donated "x amount" to you then you might still have a very small available list if people to give prizes away to. I am just bringing it up is all. I think everything that people are doing is great. I am still pushing for more right now. I also need to submit the check I received for $50.00 so it will actually post on my account.

 

Hi Boosted, my original thought was having my donors as part of the raffle.  Of the donations I've received, about 15 of them are eligible for raffle prizes right now if a minimum was, say, $25.00.

Wow, way to go. Most of my donors are family so they really wouldn't care about getting a video game. :D

Contacting the donors ahead of time should be fine and eliminate unnecessary wait times.  One thing I tried last year was having a couple of different prize levels corresponding to the amount donated.  So I had a set of 30 digital items at <$5, 20 items <$10, etc. If you do choose to try that, I'd recommend clear and concise formatting to show the different tier prizes and required donation amounts.

 

As for having them choose as they win, that will require some form of communication to confirm who wants what. This means the prize draw results can be delayed quite a bit if one winner takes a while, so keep that in mind.  But in general I find that the raffle winners appreciate being able to choose their prizes themselves.

Thanks :) Well, many of my donors may not be gamers also :P

The tiers sound pretty cool, actually. Thanks for the tip! I think there would indeed be a delay. For example, some folks might not get back to me on marathon day and might even respond a day or two later. Though I think that'd be alright.... I'd just draw donors names from a pot and take it from there. Prizes in those specific tiers would be first-come, first-serve then perhaps...

Damn dropped to 5th place in the group.  Contacted few of our venders and got an additional 20 and think that's all I can do for the group.  Already sold my surplus of PS+ and Live cards to raise little over 200 and got my order for the t shirt.  So what games are people going to play on the 2nd?

I have to announce my raffle prizes to donors and put it on my page as well early this week (I'm back in town tomorrow), so I can hope to get more donations!

Woohoo on reaching the goal!

Just reached my silver medal. One big push this week towards a gold medal at $1000.00. I don't know if I will make it but I am gonna try. I encourage everyone to make one final push this week. Keep up the great work and let's plan to go even bigger for next year.

Yes, next year is going to be great. In Dallas we have a CMN Ambassador and she has been invaluable in getting things organized here. We're going to take the model used in Boston, where they have raised almost 75k.

I really want to organize more for next year. We basically found out about this 3 weeks ago. I know that I can do more if I have more time. I want to include some organized events. I think there needs to be group formed that can try to make a concerted effort towards this. I appreciate everyone's efforts and don't mean to step on anyone's toes. Maybe there is already a core group of organizational members. If there is then I would like to be able to join them. If there is not then I would like to begin a lengthy conversation with other members about how to push this to be larger for next year.

If you are in or are interested in becoming a organizing member please post so and we will begin brainstorming after we have all completed our goals for 2013.

Keep up the great work.

for anyone new to extra life, make sure you blast your social media contacts this week. read the extra life blog and post stats. beg. plead. the average per person is about $150, so everything above that is gravy, but you should make your most cash this week. I think the most inspiration came during year one when I was sitting there at 2am after having raised $75. $3 an hour hurt. :)

Everyone has been doing a great job on raising for Extra Life. We are currently more than $500 beyond the original goal of $4000.00 and the numbers keep rising. I am going to get that Gold Medal on my first year and I plan to get it every year from here on out. I encourage everyone to keep up the great work. Aim for $50.00, $100.00, the T-Shirt, Silver or Gold Medal. Just remember to set you goal high and you never know what you can achieve.

HI guys, I know it's not much but I've received 5 PC/Windows copies of "Alpha Protocol" that I'd like to mail to the top donors. I met up with an ex-Obsidian friend, and he donated the extra copies to me after he heard about my Extra Life run. I can probably mail them out next week.  If the five guys below could get back to me (via Private Message) with your mailing address, I'd like to send you a copy. If for any reason you don't want a copy, please PM me still so I can draw another name from the Team CAG list. Thanks!

 

ObsidianSpire

Michael Thompson

Steven Chapman

Jason Ho

Edward Chang

 

I drew these names from a hat, in case people were wondering. The only criteria I set was that the donor received at least $30 in donations. Thanks again!

 

------

Also, I've updated my fundraising page with raffle prizes for donors.  I plan to do the raffle after the marathon is over, so that anyone can donate before or during the marathon to be entered to win, too.

Congratulations for joining. It is great to have more people on board. :applause:

I have been trailing wongjp for a long time now. I am closing the gap but it will be a very tight race at the end. I only say this because I have a competitive nature and enjoy trying to play catch up with others. He has set a very high bar that made me inch and claw my way towards the top. I am going to need to build up a lead because I am sure the he will do great during the 25 hour marathon in a couple of days. Keep up the great work but know that I am coming for the top spot. :D

So it is YOU! :D It's like the ridiculous race in very first Fast & Furious movie. I might have pushed NOS too soon...

 

I have a feeling you will get more donations in the next few days than I. :)  Fundraising for this event has turned out to be pretty fun/interesting, and I like the competition too.
