Extra Life is an annual event where gamers from around the world play games for 25 hours to raise money for children's hospitals. This year, the Northwest Indiana Boardgamers Association is joining the party for the first time. Our event will be held a week before the official date due to soccer conflicts at the Hallmark, but we managed to book the date! IT'S ON!
So, here's the deal: if you want to join our team, go to http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=12454 and click "Join the Team". The event will be going on for 25 hours, but you do not have to do all 25 hours all at once. If you need to split it up, you can do that! The important thing is that you put in the time...a hardship, I know. We're asking that all participants raise at least $100 - at $1 an hour, you really only need four people to sponsor you. They can sponsor you right at the website. And of course, you can always raise more. I set our group goal at $1000, which should be doable if we get ten participants.
If you can't participate this year, please consider donating. Go to the team website, click on the player you want to support, and set up your donation. I suggest you pick someone who doesn't have much support yet.
And even if you're not participating this year, you are more than welcome to come join us at any time during the event. Everyone's welcome to play games!
