    [Engaged] Extra Life Charity Live Stream

    I'll be live streaming some video games this Friday/Saturday as part of the extra life charity drive to raise money for sick kids. If anyone is interested in checking it out you can see the stream at my extra life page here.

    Game on with Extra Life, a fundraising program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Rally with our community of gamers to play games and raise funds that help kids in local communities across the U.S. and Canada.


    I might also be streaming earlier but we'll see how time goes. The money goes towards helping sick kids in London, Ontario. More details about the hospital here https://childrenshospitals.ca/childr...th-foundation/

    Thinking I'll be streaming some Dark Souls, Hades, Dead Cells, Beat Saber... Might eat a super spicy pepper on stream for entertainment purposes, it will be fun (and quite painful if I eat the pepper!)

    I'll be starting streaming some time between 3 and 4pm Eastern Time (Toronto/New York Time)


    Evan,
    Sat today, lah

          Hi Evan,


          Maybe the hot pepper can be saved for a certain dollar amount. If you know what time you will be streaming it would you mind posting the times here? It might make it easier for people to stop by see what your up to.

            Good for you, Evan, that is a great cause!

            Thinking I'll be streaming some Dark Souls, Hades, Dead Cells, Beat Saber...
            Well, those all sound very wholesome!

            Just kidding - enjoy and I hope you raise a lot of money for the hospitals.

              Good point, updated it with a general time frame of when I'll be starting (sometime between 3 and 4). And I might do that, I ordered a pack of dried carolina reaper peppers so I'll have more than one. (whether I can stand to eat more than one in a single day is another question)

              Only the most wholesome games for me :P (technically Hades is about someone trying to escape the greek underworld so that he can meet his mother, and beat saber is just a music game)

              EDIT: Depending on time and how I feel, might also play Kennys game

                Awesome, Evan! I also stream sometimes, but it's been a while. Streaming for charity is a great idea! I've been trying to figure out how to stream in VR without blowing up my laptop...

                      Wow, that's so cool, thank you Evan. I must be getting really old though because I have no idea what anything in your post means besides the raising money for sick kids part. Thank you for some uplifting and badly needed engaged activity!

                        Basically I'm going to play video games for entertainment purposes (where a stream of me/the game will be publicly viewable), the idea is to try and attract viewers and then they watch you play (and possibly donate). I don't really have a following of viewers, but I'm spreading around the fact that I'm doing it anyways, and even if someone doesn't want to tune in to watch, they could still donate if they feel like it.

                          LOL! I was going to write exactly this too. My gaming career began with playing Frogger at my cousin's house on their Atari. It ended with a splat not long after haha. I always preferred sitting in trees or riding my bike.
                          Good on you Evan for doing this though. A very worthwhile event.

                              Btw streaming right now, playing among us with some of our co-workers.

                              Twitch is the world's leading video platform and community for gamers.
