Hello Behemoth LuV3rZ!!!

I signed up for Gaming And Giving For Good, to support Extra Life (http://www.extra-life.org), an organization that helps people run their own video game marathons to raise money for hospitals in the Children's Miracle Network.

Donations are tax-deductible and 100% goes to help kids in need.

This event will take place on October 1st, 2011 and will be playing CASTLE CRASHERS to help promote and fund-raise for Rady's Children's Hospital --http://www.rchsd.org.

If you want to sign up under our team and help promote the event, here's the link:
(Copy & Paste!)

We'll also participating in the Extra Life event on October 15, to be announced at a later date.


Get EXCITED!!!!!


Oh, and if you ARE participating...post here, PM me, and make a ruckus! LET'S DOOO THIS!!!!

xDarkAnsem-

You are correct. The "Gaming And Giving For Good" is for XBox LIVE Arcade games only, because Microsoft is partnering with Extra Life.

I was originally only doing the event on Oct. 15, but I just saw this event for the 1st, and figured "Why NOT?"

Don't worry, we'll be on PSN and XBLA on the 15th :)

Wait, so they're had one for Oct. 1 and the next one is on Oct. 15?

If there is one on Oct. 15, I don't want to miss that one!

So the one on the 15th is called "Extra Life"

Which is the same concept of Gaming & Giving for Good, where you (me or other Behemoth employees, or people who want to) will play video games for 24 hours in order to raise donations for your local children's hospital.

I'm actually going to put a restriction on this one, we'll ONLY play if we can raise $500 in donations.

No one has to pay to play, and all the donations go directly to the hospital. The way we get donations is to ask people to sponsor us to play all the hours we pledge.

Here is the fundraising page:
http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fus ... eamID=6010

If we hit our goal, I will make the Live Stream available on Saturday on the Dev Blog. I'll switch between PSN and XBLA so both consoles get play.
----
Every one can do their part by simply promoting what we're pledging to do by updating your Facebook/Twitter statuses with this:

EXTRA LIFE, OCT. 15: If we can raise at least $500 before Saturday, Behemoth employees will play for 24 hrs straight! bit.ly/oKOmMp

But of course, nobody has to do anything.

Any other questions, shoot!! :)
