GWJ Extra Life Team
Led by our team captain Eleima. Not only are we looking for folks to jump in and play for charity, we are also looking for folks to play games with us while we do it!

Let's get started on some planning for Extra Life! As plans develop, updates will be noted in the original post here.

Date: November 2nd, 2019
I'm interested in twitch hosting GWJ streamers for the GWJ team on our Twitch Channel!
I'm also interested in hosting other existing streams, gatherings, and groups that are friends of GWJ.

In three weeks, let's get together and bring some positivity to the world.

Looking forward to seeing what we can do to help out all those children's hospitals!

A few folks have already submitted donations, which stopped my in my tracks this morning as I was checking my phone. You all really are amazing people.

Done and done. Rock on, Stargazer.

I can only echo Amoebic's words. Your generosity is truly humbling, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Also, folk, I'm working on my schedule, as I'm getting ready for Game Day and love to hear from everyone. I made a little survey with the short list of games I'm thinking would be interesting to stream and if you can select the ones you're most interested in, that'd be awesome!

ANOTHER EDIT!! So I think I've nailed down a schedule. A schedule a bit complicated to make, simply because Europe will be doing the Daylight Savings Dance that weekend (North America will be switching the weekend prior to that). BUT, I've figured it out. So here's my schedule. Subject to change, of course, unforeseen circumstances and my old person self being too tired and having to crash prematurely. Also, depending on whether I like a game or not, obviously.
All times are my local time with Eastern between parentheses.

Blimey.

Hollow Knight. Yay!

As you progress with the game it's good to have a guide on hand because they don't make it very clear where to go next. Once you are done with the initial areas.
