Now that Extra-Life is over, I wanted to send out some acknowledgments and thank you's for everyone who participated, helped out, donated, watched, and gamed with me in the wee hours of the morning.
First of all, I want to send a huge thank you to all of you who donated to the BPD Army. While we didn't quite reach our projected goal, we still managed to raise an amazing $2,813 for charity, putting us in the top 100 out of 2,395 total Extra-Life teams. That's an amazing accomplishment in itself, and I am super happy and proud of all of you, whether you donated a lot or a little. Every single dollar goes to a good cause, so every dollar is just as appreciated as the next.
For all of the BPD Army members, thank you so much for pledging your time and participating in this charity. I realize that to many, all you did was “just play videogames”, but you showed that you're willing to push yourself, dedicated your time and risk insomnia-induced insanity all in the name of helping children. I couldn't have raised all of that by myself, and I am so happy and humbled that you decided to take the plunge along side me. And just like with donors, every dollar counts, so I am super thankful to all of you, whether you made your individual goal or not.
For everyone who came by my stream, watched me game (whether it was for a few minutes or for the long hall), and even jumped into a game or two with me, I wanna say thank you for your support and encouragement. Doing this alone would definitely have been a struggle, especially in those last few hours. But knowing you guys were at my back right along side me made it easier, and way more fun!
Lastly, as one final reward and thank you, I'm offering to send a Free Print to every participating BPD Army member, as well as any donator who pledged a total of $20 or more*. All you have to do to claim this print is to send me an e-mail through the “contact me” page with the subject line “Extra Life Print” with your full name you registered with Extra Life, who you donated to ( if you're a donor, so I can look up your pledge) and your mailing address. I want to get this done promptly, so please claim your print (as well as send any extra donations if needed) by Nov 2nd! I'd like to have everything sent out no later than Nov 12th, so your speediness will be extremely helpful in doing that. ^_^
So once again, thank you to everyone who got involved! I couldn't have done it without you. You are all awesome and I love your generous, beautiful faces. I hope you all join me again next year!
