This year's Extra-Life event has come and gone and we managed to raise $3,413 as of the time I posted this message. Donations will remain open until December 1st so if you have any last minute donors be sure to get it in now. If you missed any of our livestreams be sure to check them out below. I want to thank everyone that came out for this years event. Whether you helped raise funds for it or you participated in the events this year's event was very successful. We managed to get near our goal with a fraction of the participants as we've had in the past year. We ranked 233rd among the participants of Extra-Life with a total of 20 participants who collected 83 donations. Overall for the few people we had participating this year we covered a lot of ground.
Extra-Life 2017 Preparation
In preparation for next year's extra life, I plan to finally launch a new system to help build funds toward our goal over the year. I will be giving Half Page and Full Page ads away in our magazine to people who donate to our charity event. My current target is $100 for a half page ad and $250 for a full page ad, $500 for a 2 page spread. Now they won't be "buying an ad" in our magazine, we will be giving them an ad for showing their support in our charity event. That is going to need to be very clear. These are our way of showing our support to people who contribute towards our charity event. I'm hoping this will help us jump over the 5k mark and move far beyond.
The second change I plan on making is scrubbing the DoubleUp charity event to make Extra-Life a year round event. I plan on having 2 weekends like the one we just had. One in the Spring and one in the Fall. Both of which promoting our campaign to raise money for the CMN. It's my hopes by running a early Extra-Life event we can help improve our overall yearly goal. I'd like to see us be able to cross the 10k mark.
The final new feature is going to be a Google Doc that I will post on the site for you to use or maybe even a PDF that will be our Annual Extra-Life Poster that we can post up on local bulletin boards to try to get some local folk to support the campaign. I'm hoping that we can grow this event so that we can rank in the top 100 every year. As you guys know charity work is something I hold dear to my heart and I want us to be as successful as possible.
