    First off this is such a cool thing you are doing Rick and I am so proud to be a LOTRO player right now :-) can't wait to see just how much money we end up raising for the kids, I am a mom of two and am going through a cancer scare at the moment, one of my children has a lump in there breast and we are waiting to find out the results. I can only imagine what families go through and it's causes like this that make these difficult times a little easier to cope with. Families don't have to chose between staying at there child's side vs. working to afford treatment.

    second, I think I read that we will find out the winners for all the incentives on December 2nd, it this right?

    If so how does that work out for the beta keys and HD keys with lunch day being Nov 18th??

    thanks for all you do and keep up the amazing work,

    P.S. I saw the bow to no one clip and cried like a baby, loved it! The real life versions of Frodo is Rick! You truly have the heart of a hobbit!

    The beta keys were instant. I sent out the batches as the goals were hit. Some were a couple days late, but they all went out. Same with the HD keys except for the last 2 batches($32,500 and $46,000 I think) which I haven't sent yet.

    The other stuff (mostly the codes everyone is getting) is what's on hold until after the second. Since the actual last possible donation time is 1 minute before midnight on the 3rd, no you won't find out on the second. I expect it will take me a day or two to compile all the info (absolutely enforcing the name thing next year, no kinship mentions in the notes. It just too much work to read every note of over 1800 donations for a kinship name or reference (and then some people trying to double dip and say apply this here and that there) and the wording of the challenge was intended to prevent that).

    Hmm, I donated a while ago and wasn't sure what I was supposed to do, so I think I just left all lotro information in the note. Is there something else I can do at this point?

    I had a feeling that's how it worked but thank you so much for the clarification.

    I am sure that would be a total headache, plus people leaving email addresses in comments lol.

    Looking forward to watching the stream on the 9th now that i know how to get to it :-) keeping fingers crossed that we will see you in
    Meneldor. I might just have to try out PvMP :-)

    update: preliminary test results came back clear, still waiting on labs but so far they are ruling out cancer, my son is only 12 so this is a huge relief for us. Just gives me more incentive to want to help out with this cause in any way I can. Think it's time to cash it the penny jar, rally the kin and tell anyone else I can find :-)

    Let's blow the $50,000 goal sky high, this drive is going to be epic!

    I'm not from Boston or even from the US but still i felt it was a worthy cause and it had to be supported that is why i donated. The great job you are doing for this, Rick, i'm sure the children and the hospital will appreciate it!!

    You're more than welcome Rick, it was a good but unexpected night for me as I only fired up my LoTRO client to update it after work and ended up being online all night trying to level up to 10 to join in as a bad'un.
    I didn't quite make it before you left to play YT but it got me back into LoTRO after too long away which was a good thing and allowed me to donate and also made me aware so that I can be a future fund-raiser myself (rather than just a donator this time).

    All the best,
    Mark

    I don't know how many of you have a PS3 or a PSVita, but you can now get about $50 worth of codes for games and other items for donating to ANYONE'S donor page. So you'd get those from Sony on top of anything you earn from me. Assuming you donate $20 between now and when the codes run out (about 10,000 I think)- you'll see the new option in the donation page as a $20 donation with the Playstation LOGO on it. And yes, 100% of that donation go directly to the hospital.

    Not that far away from

    $47,000 - 5 Witch King miniposters Autographed by the LOTRO Dev Team

    If these are the ones I'm thinking of, you guys REALLY do want to at least have a chance to win these.

    Is it too late to donate and be able to get the title/horses/chances at the items on raffle?

    Not for the codes for the horses or titles, but some of the raffle items so far were awarded to contributors as of the time their associated goal was reached, so those are gone, and only Sapience can define which ones (I confess myself confused by some of the wording). Per Sapience, contributions will be accepted until December 31 for the codes; the Largest Individual Contributor and the Largest Kinship Contributor totals will close on December 2. I'll edit in quotes from Sapience's earlier post...

    From Sapience, Nov. 4 (on Page 11): "Jeromy Adams of Extra Life announced that all donor pages will remain open until December 31. So if you haven't contributed and still wish to, you have time to do so at this link: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?...cipantID=45752
    maybe we can get it rounded up to a nice, even $50k for 2013.


    For the incentives, largest single donation, and kinship totals, the cut off will be December 2 at 11:59PM eastern time. But, if you donate after that time I'll make a second batch of mailings at the start of the year to make sure any last minute donations also get all of the codes promised to everyone."

    A quick update. I know I still owe you all kinship updates, but this is HUGE!

    Jeromy Adams from Extra Life stopped by the office today to say thank you for all the money you guys have donated and asked me if I thought we could really get to $50k by the end of the year. I told him I was getting a little tapped out for ideas and he dropped a BOMB on me.

    In addition to the 5 Helm's Deep Premium edition keys I'll give out immediately when we hit $48k (all the HD keys for goals prioir to that have been sent, so if you didn't get one here's your last chance!), Jeromy has given us something utterly awesome for the $50k goal.

    My Birthday is December 30th. So I'm making this my "here's what you can give me for my birthday" wish. Hit $50k. In return, on my Birthday I'll draw one name from EVERYONE who doanted at least $5 and you'll get not only the Lifetime LOTRO sub, but TWO PASSES FOR E3 2014 IN Los Angeles courtesy of Jeromy and the gang at Extra life and Children's Miracle Network! let's be honest, two big console launches this holiday, and you know all the hot games for them will be coming out at E3 next year!

    You have to provide your own transportation and lodging, but if you've ever wanted to go to E3 and couldn't figure out how to get in without being in the industry.. here's your shot!

    Also, I'll count every donation that's over $5 as an entry for this. So if you gave 3 $5 donations, that's 3 entries.


    So let's get this done! $50k is only $2,800 away!

    Your life counts from when you started at Turbine right? That'll make it a bit over 4 years! *eats a winner pie*

    Good luck with 50k!

    Actually by that reckoning I'd be 5 years, 2 months, and 13 days as of today.

    Thank you.

    I'm just as amazed as anyone. I set of a goal of $25k last March and was pretty sure I was going to come up very short. The fact that we're now talking about potentially DOUBLING that goal is amazing to me. The fact that the folks at Extra life are so behind our hitting that $50k goal that they came out here and offered two passes to E3 to help make it happen is even more incredible.

    Just made 10$ donation for a good cause. Keep doing the great job for the kids, we will support you as much as we can!
