UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have had to bring my Extra Life marathon forward by a week. The live stream and gaming extravaganza will now kick off at 22:00 CET on Friday 17th October. Please note that the deadline for entry into my “Early Bird” prize draw has been adjusted accordingly but the deadline for entry into my Steam Tomb Raider giveaway remains unaffected.
Extra Life 2014 is less than a month away and The Archaeology of Tomb Raider has managed to raise a total of $105 to date thanks to 5 generous donors! Thanks so much, guys! You rock. All donors will be officially thanked on this blog at a later date so stay tuned for a proper thank you. 🙂
Now, in case you were wondering what Extra Life is all about and why I’ve been promoting it so much on social media lately, please take a moment to visit the Extra Life website, watch this video, or check out the blog’s dedicated Extra Life page. Last year, some 31,000 gamers helped raised over $3.7 million and this year we hope to do even better.
But not without your help…
I’ll be streaming some of my gaming live on my Twitch channel during the weekend of
24th-26th October 2014 **17th-19th October** (exact times to be confirmed) and I invite all readers and social media followers to stop by to provide moral support and company while I try not to kill off Lara or rage-quit when I fail to get through another level of Farm Heroes Saga. And…maybe even donate some money (even if it’s as little as $1) via my Extra Life fundraiser page.
Since I don’t like to beg people for money, I thought I’d offer a little incentive for you to make a donation. Read on…
The “Early Bird” Prize Draw:
Anyone who makes a donation
before the 25th October **before the 18th October** will be eligible for my “Early Bird” prize draw!
The prize: A £20 voucher for Insert Coin, the leading name in gaming apparel. The winner will be determined by a random number generator and will be announced on the blog and during the live stream on 18th October.
To make things more fun and thank donors for their generosity, I will be offering a range of perks based on the amount donated, which range from a shout-out on social media to entries into a Steam prize draw, where the lucky winner will win the Tomb Raider game of their choice (PC only, Tomb Raider 1 – Underworld).**
Here’s a breakdown of the perks I’m offering:
- $1-$4.99 – A mention on the blog;
- $5-$9.99 – A mention on the blog, a shout-out on social media, and 1 entry into the Steam prize draw;
- $10-$14.99 – All of the above, plus a shout-out on the live stream;
- $15-$19.99 – All of the above, plus a blog post dedication;
- Over $20 – All of the above, plus a personalized “Thank You” card.
The winner of the Steam prize draw will be announced on the blog and social media on 1st November 2014 and, as with all my previous prize draws, the winner will be chosen via a random number generator. 🙂
Please note that aside from the live stream shout-outs, all other perks will be awarded after the 26th October. The Steam prize draw will be held on the 1st November 2014 and only donors who make their donations before 23:59 CET on 26th October will be eligible.
