Extra Life – Calling All Superheroes!

CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES!

Hiya PSTALENT! I’m excited to announce that PST is forming our own team for Extra Life 2012! All proceeds go to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, where any child can be treated, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Our team goal is to raise $500 for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals this year.

We’ll do this by getting friends and family to sponsor us in a 24-hour gaming marathon on October 20th. Any video games count, whether they’re on a console, computer, handheld or mobile device. Extra Life uses the honor system, so it doesn’t have to be 24 hours in a row. In fact, regular breaks are recommended. If you have a conflicting schedule on October 20th, you can make up the hours before or after. The point is just to raise money for the children’s hospitals and have FUN in the process!

Here’s how you can help:

1) Join the team, get sponsors, play games for 24 hours on/around October 20th! You can play single player games if you like, but we can also play multiplayer PS3/PSN games, social games and PS Home mini-games together!

2) Sponsor a team member! Even if you are unable to participate, you can sponsor someone else who can! (All contributions are tax deductible as well.)

I know with your help, we can totally rock this! Thanks in advance!

    YAYS! That’s so awesome! GO TEAM PST! WOOT! 😀 I passed my goal too, passing my original goal of $250 and raising $258 for Texas Children’s Hospital! 😀 Even those of us who have reached our personal goals, let’s raise our goals and keep going! And remember, we can take donations even after the gaming marathon is over. 😀

    Woohoo! Everyone see that thermometer on the right? Team PSTALENT has surpassed our $500 goal and raise $519 for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals! Team PSTALENT rawks! 😀

    Team: Keep going to meet those individual fundraising goals! You can do it!

    Everyone else: Please consider donating to a PST team member, if you can! Even $1 helps, and is a great way to show support for our fellow PSTALENT members and friends! 100% of your donation goes to help kids and is tax-deductible! Thanks!

    Keep up the great work, Team PSTALENT! Some of us still have to meet our personal fundraising goals, but as a TEAM, we only have $6 to go to reach our goal! 😀

    Thankies! Yes, I did the same thing last year. I had it set to $100 and then when I passed it, I set it to $150. So this year I set it to $150 and since I’m almost there with a week to go, I might end up increasing it again. There are always last minute donations on the day of the marathon. Also remember that donations can be taken long after the marathon too.

    You’re making excellent progress towards your goal too! 😀
    I just passed mine, but I think I’ll raise it a bit more, since there’s still a week left!

    Check it out to find out what to expect from the perspective of a fellow PST member. Thank you to PST for their continued support for this this great cause!

    I updated the page to include links to sponsor participating PSTALENT members!

    Join the PSTALENT Extra Life team and play video games with us in support of your local Children’s Miracle Network hospital! If you’re already registered, post a link and I’ll add you to the page. if you can’t participate, please consider sponsoring a fellow PSTALENT member. Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the proceeds go to Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. CMNH will treat any child, regardless of their family’s ability to pay, so every dollar helps. Thanks, PST! <3

    I couldn’t get the blog to support the cool iFrame widgets with goal thermometers, but I put up banners with links to our “donate” pages. That’ll have to do!

    Awesome, thanks Sue! The PST team link is above, but since I’m the only person on the team at the moment, here’s a link to my page:
    http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=33209

    Also, Trisha posted a link to hers below. She’s on a team with Cyrus from The Tester!

    Also, I know that there is a link to this blog under “Latest PST News” on the left hand side of the home page, but do you think this is big enough to include a separate link to this blog from the homepage using that ExtraLife logo image?

  30. Profile photo of Trisha
    Trisha 5 years ago

    Yes, I can definitely re-post the HSM article I wrote of my Extra-Life experience, which included mentioning of the support I got from PST. That also just reminded me of including a link to the article in my donations page too.

    I don’t have a link to the page from last year, but maybe DOD can find it in the archives. It was basically a blog page that had the Extra Life logo and then PST headshots for the 4 or 5 of us that were participating with a link to our donation page below each headshot. Then a place at the bottom to post comments just like this blog. So maybe we can create a new page like that for this year too?

  32. Profile photo of StephieRawks Author
    StephieRawks 5 years ago

    I don’t remember what the page was like last year, since I was unable to participate then. Do you happen to have a link to that page in the archives or something? Assuming it’s okay with DOD, I wouldn’t mind linking that too.

    Also, feel free to re-post the article you wrote for HSM last year about your Extra Life experience! I’m sure some people who haven’t participated in it yet would love to hear what it’s like!

    Also, for those that have already joined a team and cannot join the PST team, but would still like support from other PST members, can we have a page with links to their donation pages like we did last year?

  34. Profile photo of Trisha

    Since I had participated last year, I was already had an account and just had to create a new dontations page for 2012: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=32682. I had already joined another team, so not sure if I can join more than one team or not.
