    The incentives are in US dollars, correct? How should those of us outside the US treat them? Calculate an exchange rate and include that in the information we give you?

    The website seems to allow donations in USD regardless of where you live (in fact I can't see an option to select any other currency but USD or CAD), so I assume the exchange rate is then included automatically. Or at least that's what I'm hoping

    P.S. Is +Cord of the Rings supposed to still be on this week....?

    In game event associated with Extra Life?

    Will there be an in game event associated with Extra Life. I have seen other games have official events they are hosting as fund raisers.

    Wanted to give to my local Children's Hospital, which is in the same network, but supported Boston's anyway -- for the Team effort. Would a local donation have counted? Regardless, it IS a worthy cause. Thank you!

    Yes this is in US dollars. If Extra Life doesn't do the conversion then I guess you will need to. Approximate equivalent is fine. Not going to be too exact about it.

    While we are raising for the Boston Children's Hospital I am ok with a local donation if you prefer. Easy way to do it is to find someone to donate to or donate to yourself and pick your preferred hospital. Then just PM me the needed info.

    Hey Cordovan, I tried to donate but I got an error message saying to check the credit card expiry date. I am 100% sure it's all correct but for some reason it's not working. Any idea what happened?

    Donated Cord and sent you a PM!

    If you would, can you post here and let us know if you started responding to PMs? I'm asking because the PM notification system is not reliable. I manually check it, but it would be nice if you could make a post here saying that you are checking PMs.

    Sorry but I have no visibility into Extra Life's payment system.

    No I have not. I am actually not able to start responding until Wednesday but do not intend to begin most distribution until mid November.

    Hmmmm.... this happened to me as well.

    Is the sent folder buggy?


    Weird question.... I have a few accounts. Will I need to use the codes all on one account or can I spread the love?

    Thanks and keep up the great work!
