Extra Life 2018 Update #8

This is it! We’ve arrived at the final stretch of our Extra Life campaign and we’ve got a lot to talk about.

First of all we’ve met our fundraising goal!! We set the bar high at $1,000 and we hit it with a week still to go. We have our 2018 fundraising partners Chris Berto and Antonio Guillen for getting us to the goal so soon. But just because we’ve hit our goal doesn’t mean we’re slowing down! We’ve set a stretch goal of $1500 and a special challenge along with it. If we hit that goal by Gameday we will play a special game of Extreme Trivia! We answer 6 trivia questions and for each one that we get wrong we’ll have to complete a special (and probably unpleasant) challenge. So get those donations in if you’d like to see us suffer.

ALSO, we’ve got surprise last minute new sponsor of Team Mega Dads! We were blown away to hear from them last week and we think you’ll be happy too.

bioware_logoThat’s right, BIOWARE is now an official sponsor of Team Mega Dads! We’ll be announcing what they’ve sent for us to give away before Gameday, but we’re confident saying that they’re some of the coolest prizes yet, including some great swag from their upcoming title ANTHEM! So stay tuned!

 

Extra Life 2018 Update #7

We’re less than 2 weeks away from Extra Life Gameday! Things are really ramping up and we’re so close to our fundraising goal that we can taste it! We’re currently sitting at $960 out of our $1,000 goal. One or two more donations should get us to the finish line, but we won’t be content with just reaching our goal. We want to crush it. We’ll be coming up with some fun stretch goals to help push us to even greater heights!

The past week has also brought us 2 fantastic new sponsors for Team Mega Dads! Capcom joins us for the first team and we’re thrilled to have them supporting us this year. Also, Xbox is a new sponsor this year and we’re super excited to have them on the team. You can find all of the new prizes that these two donors have provided over on the fundraising page. The prize bundles this year are so great that I think we’ll have a hard time outdoing them in the future!

We’re approaching the final stretch so thank you again to everyone who has donated and supported the team. We’ll be back next week with another update so stay tuned!

Extra Life 2018 Update #5

Hey there! A quick update on our fundraising efforts since we kicked things off a couple of weeks ago.

We’ve had a fantastic start to our 2018 campaign! Adam kicked things off with a special promotion offering free art commissions with donations to the team and that helped propel us to nearly 1/3 of our goal. Then on the last episode of Mega Dads Live we issues a special challenge to our listeners. If we can reach $640 raised by October 14th we will hold a special Rock Band 4 concert during our GameDay live stream! And when we say concert, we don’t just mean playing songs for an hour. It’ll be 10 songs, with full lighting and fog effects as well as costumes and makeup. It will be… epic.

We are also planning on announcing our Extra Life Prize baskets on Monday, October 8th. We are still waiting for a few packages from donors to roll in (really awesome ones we might add), but I think we’re pretty comfortable pulling back the curtain on the big prizes. We really think you’ll be blown away by the awesome prizes we have to give away this year and we can’t wait to show you!

One final thing, we’re accepting additional members to Team Mega Dads this year if you would like to join us in raising money for CMN Hospitals. Just send us an email or DM and we’ll get you added to the team. We’re thrilled to have Mr. Chris Berto on our team this year and you can find him at Mixer.com/TheBeardedBatman!

Thanks so much for your continued support and we’ll be back soon with another BIG update!

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!

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!

Supergiant_Games_Logo

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!
