Revamping this post to better reflect where we are (and repurpose it as the official Extra Life 2014 Thread).
The big deal this year is we're going to try and DOUBLE our 2014 total of $50,000.00. That's right $100,000.00. It's a huge number so it requires a huge incentive. Something... permanent.
As in.... a Tattoo.
If we hit $100,000.00 on my fund raising page this year I will get the Extra life logo tattooed on my body. No you don't get to choose where, but I'll get it done as quickly as I can upon hitting the $100k Mark.
To help with this, a local tattoo shop has volunteered to donate their time and do the tattoo for free. So when we hit $100k, I'll call them and set it up.
If you want to make this happen, and help heal sick kids then grab this link and hit the "support me" button and make your donation: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?...cipantID=88974
You can donate any amount, but I strongly recommend at least $25. This year we have two donor tiers, the standard $5 tier that gets you the titles, pets, cloaks, etc. and a $25 tier that gets you all that plus an exclusive Extra Life only Tundra Cub pet (with its own snow effect) that cannot be earned anywhere else. There is also a Ghost bear pet that is also available to anyone donating at least $25 assuming we hit the other goals. Obviously, if you donate $25, then you automatically qualify for the $5 stuff so you get it ALL.
There are a lot of other cool things on the page, so make sure you check it out!
Join Team Turbine!
If you are participating in Extra life by playing during the marathon, you can join Team Turbine and all your donors will still be supporting you and your chosen hospital. Joining Team Turbine just makes you part of a time that regularly appears at the top of the Extra Life charts for top fund raising teams.
While many of us here play for Boston Children's and many of our players do, too, you can play for any of the 170 Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. If you wanted to play for a hospital in Texas or Seattle, or somewhere else that's perfectly fine and the money you raise will still go to your chosen hospital. So there's really no reason not to join us!
If you want to join Team Turbine for Extra life 2014, you can do so Here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?...m&teamID=14408
Also, one last thing that's sometimes a little confusing for folks. If you join Team Turbine and donate money to your own page, it' doesn't count towards anything posted on my page. You have to donate directly to my page to qualify for anything up there. There was some confusion about that last year. The same is true about donating to others on the team. Let me be clear, only the donations that are made directly to my fund raising page qualify for the codes and items listed there. So make sure you are making at least one donation to my page to get all the stuff.
Major updates to incentives, the current total raised, and all other info will be posted to my official Extra life page, so make sure you check that for updates.
