View Full Version : Extra Life Charity - Streaming Marathon

10-27-2013, 04:47 PM

Hello everyone, I want to start by saying thank you in advance for reading this post. The other night, I was talking with Hex streamer Handsofevil (http://www.twitch.tv/handsofevil) on his channel and noticed he had a post about the Extra Life Streaming Marathon. After checking out the site and doing a little research, I found out that the Children’s Miracle Network is partnering with streamers, each of which will stream games on November 2nd for 25 hours straight and raise money for the children’s hospital of their choice! Initially, I wanted to issue an invitation to HexTcgPro Streamers to get involved with this awesome cause. But why not get every Hex streamer involved? This would be an awesome way for us to show the gaming world what a great community we already have! Don’t miss your chance to show that gamers can directly influence their local communities while helping the Children’s Miracle Network.

If you’re interested in participating in this wonderful cause, this is what we will need from you:

Streamer Name
Donation Goal and Hospital of Choice
Date of Stream (if not Nov. 2nd)
Extra Life Profile Page (You get this once you sign-up as a streamer)

You can post this information bellow or private message me on my channel at Twitch.tv/ShaggyTV. Once everything is verified, I will add you to the streamer list. If you can't donate or stream, feel free to give your favorite streamer prizes to give-away during their marathon. These prizes will be used as incentives to encourage viewers to donate.

Sign-up as a streamer HERE (https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=register.start&eventID=512)
Check out the Extra Life Site (http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?) and FAQ (http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1005&eventID=512)

Special thanks again to Handsofevil (http://www.twitch.tv/handsofevil) for bringing my attention to this awesome charity event.

Hey guys, just thought I'd poke my head in here and add a couple things.

-First off, thanks Shaggy for helping get the word out! The more who participate the better! I will be creating a HEX team currently consisting of myself and Shaggy, so if you are interested in joining please message me on twitch.tv, user name Handsofevil and we'll get you added on. :)
-For those that can't donate or stream, you can still come out to watch! While giving the streaming prizes to give away is helpful, it's just as helpful for you to come out and keep us company. I can guarantee streaming for 25hours gets boring... And every single viewer helps.
-As Shaggy implied, the Nov 2nd date is not set in stone, and neither is streaming for 25hours straight. I, and ExtraLife, understands that it's not feasible for everyone. If you want to stream for 15 hours one day, and 10 the next, great!!! If you can't do the 2nd and need to the 4th (like me), great!!! If you want to stream other games alongside HEX, great!!! The goal is to raise money for Children's Hospitals all over the country. The rest of the details are flexible.

Thanks again Shaggy, and I look forward to this marathon!!
Until then, Happy HEXing.

there are few sufferings in life as punishing as those delivered to ones so new to this world - be they mental, emotional or physical.

It is difficult when we are visited by external harm.

the best of luck to you, and all success.

if our product can in any way heal or be a tool in palliative care - it simply must be.


10-27-2013, 10:12 PM
I am interested, will see if I'll be able to do it :)

10-28-2013, 04:01 AM
Signed up!

My fundraising page (http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=66105)

Will be streaming on 1/11/13 1000H GMT +8 tentatively

10-28-2013, 04:10 PM
I will be streaming for Extra Life, including Hex (but not exclusively).

(I'm still ironing out my schedule, but I will likely be on HEX Saturday night)

10-28-2013, 04:19 PM
This is an awesome event and should hopefully see more light. I would sign up if I was on my normal streaming computer. I'll make sure to be watching though and try to let everyone know about it. Great job bringing light to it!

10-28-2013, 10:01 PM
It's wonderful to see so much interest in this!! I have emailed Extra-Life about team creation and am hoping to hear back soon!

10-29-2013, 10:01 AM
Just finding out about this cause over the last few days, and seems like a fantastic cause. I will have to be a supporter this year, and perhaps by this time next year will have the time and skills to stream along.

10-29-2013, 04:43 PM

Anyone new signing up, look for team HEX and join that team. If you've already created your account without seeing this, just let me know your individual page and I can have you added to the team.

10-29-2013, 05:37 PM
So is each stream on Team HEX going to each stream for 25 hours straight or is the team combined going to do that, or is everyone just streaming as they can through the 25 hours?

10-29-2013, 06:53 PM
Each person is doing 25 hours on the day that they can. If we were doing it as a team that would be much easier and I would be less interested in doing it :P Until the team gets fully created I won't be able to give info on how donation to individuals vs team works, but I will make it a central place to find all of the HEX streamers on their various days.

Well, I give you guys mad props for doing this.

If any of you are actually doing a 25 hour stream, I volunteer to come in and do a live shout cast of one of your games during the 25 hours. It is not hard to set up via ventrillo or skype. My YouTube channel, Hex Casters, is not a stream, so I can't actually participate, but I would be happy to help out Team Hex by coming in at a prearranged time and shout cast a live game as you play. If you are interested in that just send me a PM and we can work out a specific time so I can get the word out when I will be in your stream with you.

I assume their are no rules against having a guest in your stream, I mean its all for charity. right?

10-30-2013, 02:58 AM
So I got word that it is ok to have a guest in your stream and have arranged to join one already. If any of the other Team Hex charity streamers would like for me to shout cast one game during your 25 hour marathon let me know.

Examples of my work

I just updated my thread as well as my fundraising page (http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=66105)

I'll be giving out 7 additional steam games if I managed to hit my $500 donation goal

10-30-2013, 03:34 PM
UPDATE: Those that have already created stream accounts need to go here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=13810 and "Join Team". They told me they merged it, but it looks like they didn't :/ I will send each of you a message on the forums to let you know as well.

10-30-2013, 03:38 PM
I'm interested in joining the team, I've been looking for an excuse to start streaming and this cause is too good. What I'm wondering is between what dates do I have to complete my 25 hours if I were to join the team?

Viewers may make donations until December 31st. So you have any time between November 2nd and December 31st to Stream. Just keep me posted and I will update the list. Thank you so much for your interest.

Thanks for the headsup handsofevil, I've filled up the form and waiting the transfer to the team.

Tentatively I'll start my stream from 1/11/2013 0500H GMT+8 all the way till 2/11/2013 1000H GMT+8

There will be some lucky draw prizes for donors, so be sure to show your support!

Hi all. I've started the HEX portion of my Extra Life stream tonight.

You can find my livestream at http://twitch.tv/hackychannel

You can donate toward my Extra Life fundraising goal at http://extra-life.org/participant/hacky
(as of this writing, I'm at $35 of my $200 goal)

I will be playing HEX for at least 4 hours tonight. Hope to see you in chat!

11-04-2013, 08:19 PM
Bumping to get the word out more! Handsofevil is streaming currently: http://www.twitch.tv/handsofevil and only $230 from hitting his goal!

11-05-2013, 12:08 AM
Hands hit it and then some:)

It was a great time, and I urgently suggest you guys check out these streams. They are amazingly fun times

11-05-2013, 12:58 AM
By the end of a long weekend, we've hit some amazing goals that I'd like to share with all of you. As team HEX, we made $2277 and are, as of writing, #206/3627 teams that are participating in Extra-Life this year. We had a wonderful performance by shaggytv and myself. So far Shaggy has raised $645 for WVU Healthcare Children's Hospital. I managed to hit $1610 for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare! I am sitting at #172/38695 participants, and unfortunately I can't see where Shaggy is.

The important part is: Team HEX has so far raised $2277 for children's hospitals!!!! I cannot tell you how amazing this is and how much it means to so many different people.

Going forward: If you were unable to donate at the time, or decide you want to donate more to any of our wonderful streamers, you can still donate!! Extra-Life donations are accepted up through the end of the year! I know I am planning on doing this again next year! Maybe this time we'll have a HEX army to stream?

11-06-2013, 01:34 PM
Just want to give props to HoE. It was a lot of fun. :cool: I sure the other streamers were pretty good but I wasnt able to catch their streams.

11-08-2013, 09:29 AM
I posted a video in support of the Hex steamers Extra Life charity efforts...


go check it out and remember, you have until Dec. 31st to donate!

Keep showing what a great community this is!
