Extra Life 2018 Update #4

Hello again everybody! We’ve got another update for this year’s campaign and we’re happy to announce that we’ve officially kicked off our fundraising! We received a couple of donations last week which is always great to see this far out from gameday. We hope we can count on you all to not only consider making a donation to the cause, but to help us spread the word about Extra Life and join us on November 3rd for an awesome day of gaming and fun.

We’re very excited this week to be announcing another sponsor for Team Mega Dads as well! We continue to add new partners to our team and the collection of prizes we have to give away is getting to be quite impressive! Within the next couple of weeks we should be ready to announce what the Prize Baskets will entail, but until then please join us in welcoming PDP Gaming to the team!

Extra Life 2018 Update #3

We’re very excited this week to be kicking off our fundraising for Extra Life 2018! Weeks of preparation has led us to this point and now we’re ready to kick things off. You can follow the link at the top of the page for full details but the skinny is that we’ll be gaming on November 3rd from 6am to 10pm and our goal this year is $1,000! It’s a little ambitious but we managed to reach it last year and I think we can do it again.

We also have hundreds of dollars worth of prizes to give away to those who donate. You get one entry for each $5 donated and the prizes are going to be awesome! In fact we’re very happy to share with you a few of the prizes that we’ll be giving away this year from our sponsors Bandai Namco and Supergiant Games!

We’re also thrilled to announce that this year we’d like to invite members of the community to join Team Mega Dads and help us reach our goal! You can choose when you play, what you play, and how much you’d like to raise! We think that by joining together we can make an even bigger difference! If you’d like to join the team and help us to raise money for CMN Hospitals you can email us at megadadsblog@gmail.com and we’ll send you an invite!

We’ll have much more in the coming weeks so stay tuned and thanks for your continued support!!

Extra Life 2018 Update #2

We’re just about one week away from officially kicking off our Extra Life 2018 fundraising campaign for CMN Hospitals and we’re getting incredibly excited! We’ve got big things planned for gameday (which is 2 months from today btw) but you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer before we pull back the curtains on everything.

We do have one BIG announcement to make today with regards to Team Mega Dads sponsors though. We’re super happy to be welcoming a brand new sponsor this year and it’s a doozy!

We hope you’re getting as excited as we are and we look forward to kicking off the campaign very soon!

 

Extra Life 2018 Update #1

Hey everybody! We’re still a couple of weeks away from the official launch of our Extra Life 2018 campaign but we wanted to start off our series of updates and let you in on a few things that we’ve got cooking for this November!

We’ll have the specifics on game day in a couple of weeks but you can expect it to be pretty similar to last year with an all day live stream and awesome prize baskets for our donors to win. We’ve been pretty lucky with the amount of support that we’ve received from developers and publishers who have provided prizes for us to give away to our donors to help us reach our goal, and we’re going to kick off this year by announcing our first official Team Mega Dads sponsor for Extra Life 2018!

That’s right, Supergiant Games is once again lending their support to our team for Extra Life!! The amazing folks behind games like Bastion, Transistor and Pyre have been supporting Team Mega Dads for several years and have always been tremendously generous and supportive of the cause. They are honest to goodness some of the nicest folks around and we are super grateful to have them at our side as we get ready to launch our 2018 campaign.

Once again they’ve sent us a load of amazing goodies to include in our Prize Baskets that we’ll be raffling of for those who donate. We’ll be revealing what exactly those prizes are and how to win them in a few weeks when we officially kick things off, but I can assure you that they’re very cool and you’ll be quite happy if you are one of our lucky winners.

Last year we crushed our fundraising goal and raising over $1,000 for CMN Hospitals and we’re optimistic that this year we’ll be able to reach a new fundraising record for our team. Stay tuned every week as we’ll keep you up to date on all of the latest info on Team Mega Dads and Extra Life 2018!
