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. 
 
Download your title updates and charge all your peripherals! Just a few more days :)


I am the one keeping the pressure on you. However, I am not live streaming or anything so I have a feeling you will make a strong push on game day. If anyone would like to add me on PSN please do so and put Extra Life in the comments section. I have quite a few games and would love to play some co-op with people. I have just about every game that has come out in the last 6 months. Send me a pm if there is something specific that you want to play.

Shot out some thank you emails to companies that helped. Got this back from David @ NISAmerica

 

 

Hey William,

Glad to help you guys out! I think it's awesome you guys got to surpass your goal as well! Nothing better than gaming for a cause. Please let me know when another event like this comes around, or if you need help with anything else and I'll be happy to help.

Again, congratulations on exceeding your goal!

Best,
David

Next year I will contact my industry friends much sooner to help out with prize packs :) I feel like there are so many more gamers that could join Team CAG....

I know that I mentioned it before but we need to have a meeting when the 2013 run is over. If we combine together we could make this even bigger for next year. Lets get a conversation started and plan early for this.

Your library is strong, Boosted.  Here is my current selection (not my entire library though) of stuff.  There are more titles that I have, but these are either ones I want to play or haven't played yet... I love co-op as well.  The latest CoD I have, though, is Modern Warfare 3. I think I'm around Level 7 or something :P

 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!

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!

I sent a PM last week, but I already own this, so please pass it on to another member of Team CAG.

Just curious, frosty, but did you send emails to all of the companies who donated? If not, I should totally send them another thank you message before the event. 

 

General news: I added to our goal since we met the Team goal of $4000, it's now $5000 but we were already at around $4800 so it's really much smaller. :D

One of my friends donated and wrote me some nice words today.  I think it's worth sharing, to let all of you know that we're making a difference..

 

 

We are glad to donate to a good cause, especially since children are very much on our minds these days.  We have been waiting for the stork to fly over our home for some time, so I think donating to a cause like this can only be a good thing!  Honestly, very few people take action to raise awareness for a cause, or let alone, raise funds for an important cause like this, so I commend you for taking the initiative to do some good in our world; if there were only more people like you!

 

:)

Oh my god, you are a genius. All my streaming stuff (mouse, keyboard, controllers) relies on rechargeable batteries and I know they would have died on me. Thanks!


I popped in all my games across all systems to download all the patches. This was especially important for PS3! I use Eneloop rechargeable batteries for my controllers.

Thank you ^_^ I updates my goal twice. Originally it was $500, then $750. I won't update it again! Though it's been said that people are less likely to donate when the goal is reached. But let's not be greedy AGAIN :P

My original goal was $500 but I upped it to $1000. I have considered moving it to $1250 or $1500 but there is only 1 day left for my efforts. After tomorrow I will begin planning for Extra Life 2014.

Edit : I am going for $1250.00. I think I can make it. I might have some tricks up my sleeve. :D

Also can we get the team goal upped to $6000. We are already past $5000 so we need to keep pushing it up.

I know that Child's Play is a big thing for CAG, so I wish that Extra Life would be as well for next year. That is, front page news and all.

It should be a front page thing. Unquestionably we have made a huge effort and we can gain a lot more people if there is a larger amount of people helping. Extra Life 2014 should be huge.

Probably should write Cheapy about it for next year?

 

UPDATE: This is a no brainer, which I should have done long ago -- make my Twitch.tv OFFLINE graphic the Extra Life ad with a URL to my donation page :3

If anybody wants my codes for xsplit/ defiance tell me. I won't be using them and I might as well give them away instead of just letting them expire.

Hey Guys,

 

Obsidian, I just emailed NISAmerica, and Naughty Dog. Last year CheapyD put us out on the podcast, and we even had our thread stickied. I requested it this year, and nothing from no one.

You guys are awesome! I love seeing this groundswell of activity. We are trying to get something like this going in Dallas, and frankly, I wish we had more people like you guys. Next year you are probably going to hear more about guilds, which is how Boston raised $100k plus.

 

You should consider contacting the Extra Life team and see if they can get you in touch with a CMN Ambassador to help you organize events and such. I think we can make this thing huge, because gamers love to game, and most of us have pretty big hearts. With people like you guys behind it, I have no doubt will will succeed.


Extra-Life 2013 is up and running! Sign up to play games for 24 25 hours on November 2nd, 2013 and raise money for Children's Miracle Network hospitals!

A week ago I reached out to my local CMN manager, based on one of the Extra Life email blasts she wrote.  We met up and brainstormed ways to get more support for our local Children's Hospital for this as well as next year.

I appreciate that. I might be tapped out but I really want to reach $2000 now. I am $169.00 away at this point. I have a donation for $10.00 that I haven't added yet. I will do it later tonight.

Do you have Need for Speed: Most Wanted on 360 (the latest Criterion one)? I"d like to play some of you if you have it.

 

I'm scheduling my games out tonight actually.
