Thanks so much to everyone who was able to join me today! I'm calling it at the 22 hour mark due to feeling nauseous; I have a hard stop at "feeling physically ill". Very happy making it 22 hours though, especially on around 6 hours of sleep the night prior.

Seriously, the donations and the well wishes and the games we played together, it all means the world to me. And in the end a bunch of money goes to a great cause. 

With a goal of $2250, the total raised came to $2940! Absolutely insane! Of course I am taking donations until the end of the year, so if you're feeling generous every dollar counts, so please feel free to contribute. Remember too that whatever I end the year at will be the base goal for next year! Make me work hard for the money! 😄

Thank you all, and good night!

@Glovesglad you liked Tanglewood! I caught the end of your gameplay just now. I'll be sure to remind you in a week about buying the cart...especially because watching you made me realize there are multiple endings, and you still need to see the good ending...

$3,325

*confetti flies into the air*

 

Game Day has come and gone, and a few more donations have trickled in, and things have settled down. As the year comes closer and closer to a close I just wanted to toss another quick message cuz this is seriously on my mind regularly lately.

I just feel lucky to be surrounded by such giving people. My own life has somewhat mirrored the progress I've made on Extra Life. There were years where I was having trouble IRL, and those years tended to go poorly, or required some serious extra work to reach the goals. This year, despite covid and everything else, went so smoothly, and we collectively demolished the $2,250 goal by a whole extra half. I just feel super blessed to have all the supportive folks on VGS (and in my professional life) lending your hard earned money to the cause. In a year where ostensibly everyone should probably be pinching their pennies in the face of the unknown, the donations sky rocketed. 

I'm just super thankful, and wanted to say thanks, again. You all rock, seriously.

      Up for auction is a CIB Star Fox 64!  Once again, not in perfect condition, so perfect price not asked!

      Hey Sages,
      You saw round 1, now comin' atcha with round 2!!!!    
      Up for grabs is a CIB Oscar for the SNES!  Please note, once again, condition is not perfect, but we aren't asking perfect prices either!  I would personally have this in my collection as yes, the box is a little less than stellar, but it still looks crisp and pretty.  Pictures are provided and I will be more than happy to take a picture of anything you want, corner, board, label, instruction page 4, you name it and I will do it.  
      @spacepup has graciously provided the game, and is covering all shipping costs, insurance as well for safety for us all, and wants you to donate directly to @Gloves charity link here.

      You didn't think he was done trying to get you to the goal did you @Gloves?  Have you met spacepup?  He is a very generous person.
      To those of you wondering, why don't you list something I can afford.  Well hold on to your butts because Spacepup has said that we should do this as much as possible until the end of the year.  Even lower priced items will be up for auction in the coming days!  Keep on the lookout!!!!  
      Anyway, without further ado,

      Hey Sages,
      Up for grabs is a CIB Conker's Bad Fur Day!  Please note condition is not perfect, but in pretty decent shape for being an N64 game.  Pictures are provided, but I will be more than happy to take more pictures of it if you are wanting them.
