It’s that beautiful time of year!
No, not pumpkin spice season. Although that is pretty magical in it’s own right.
It’s Extra Life season! Warlocks is pumped up more than ever for Extra Life this year. We have been wracking our brains for months trying to come up with the very best ideas to raise even more money for Texas Children’s Hospital and we think we did a pretty good job.
Before I tell you about our new ideas I’d like to remind you about why we are doing all of this.
Every year we commit ourselves to the ridiculous endeavor of playing games for 24 straight hours. It’s a ludicrous mission that brings us to the brink of insanity but we do it to draw attention to a cause greater than ourselves. We do it to help children who have been dealt an awful hand. Kids that are fighting a fight that many of us can’t relate to. These kids are fighting cancer, congenital defects, and serious injuries.
These kids need your help. So please consider giving a few bucks to this awesome charity.
Now, like I said before. All of this gaming marathon stuff is a tool to get your attention. We hope you come to Extra Life for the games but stay for the kids.
Keep reading to find out how we are getting your attention this year!
We are not streaming this year. Instead we are rocking the YouTube videos; quality, bad ass, attention grabbing videos. Attention grabbing in the best sense of the phrase. This is after all, about raising money for sick kids.
The idea behind the YouTube videos is that we can make them in October (our day of play is Oct. 22nd), edit them down to watchable portions, and share them through the month of November all while asking that you pitch in a donation. This approach keeps us from putting all our eggs in one basket during a stream on the official game day, and we think it’s a better way for us to be successful. This does not excuse us from gaming for a straight 24 hours. We are certainly doing the whole 24 hours starting on the morning of the 22nd of October.
Another awesome new thing we are doing is a raffle for everyone who donates $5 or more to our team’s Extra Life campaign. So far the items available for the raffle are an awesome board game called Stratos, several key codes for indie titles on Steam, and a limited edition signed issue of the Speak No Evil comic book from our good friends over at Gray Bear Comics. At the bottom of this page there are links to all of our awesome sponsors and contributors. Check them out!
To be eligible to win any items from the raffle you must fill out the raffle form found HERE. Make sure you donate first!
