We are super excited to be kicking off our 2015 campaign for Extra Life today!! For those of you who don’t know what it is, Extra Life is a charity that raises money through a video game marathon for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It began in 2008 and has raised over $14 million dollars for children and their families. Here’s how it works…
On November 7th, Adam and John will be playing video games for 24 hours STRAIGHT to raise money and awareness for Extra Life. We will only be stopping to go wee wee and stuff Cheetos into our face holes. But we’re going to need your help to reach our fundraising goals! Our goal this year is to reach $750 for our team. You can go RIGHT HERE to make a donation! Donations are welcome in ANY amount and 100% of your donation goes to a CMN Hospital (Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare in St.Paul, MN). These are kids and families in really tough situations and they need all the support we can give them.
This will be the 3rd year in a row for Team Mega Dads and we couldn’t be more excited about being a part of this awesome event. And we will be once again teaming up with some of the biggest indie game developers to give away loads of goodies to those that donate! Here’s how it works. Every Friday for the next 10 weeks leading up to game day we will announce our weekly prize. And this year we have over $1000 worth of prizes to give away!! We’ll also have prizes to give away on game day itself which you’ll be able to watch live on TWITCH! Below you’ll find info on our Week One prize. Also, EVERY SINGLE donor receives a copy of the game World of Goo courtesy of 2D Boy! So you’re guaranteed a free game($20 value)!
So thank you in advance for your support and your donations. If you cannot afford to make a donation PLEASE consider sharing this page with others so we can get all of the help we can get. And don’t forget to follow us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER to get all of the updates on our fundraising and upcoming prizes. Thank you so much and we’ll see you on November 7th!!
