It’s 2016 and that means it’s time for Extra Life! As the resident gamer of Nerd Rage, it’s only natural that I attach myself to a charity by gamers for the kids.
For the past two years, I followed Tim (the real one, not the fake one in the chat every week) as he captained teams to raise funds. This year, he’s decided to join another team and I have taken it upon myself to start a team of my own.
I will admit to some hesitation in doing this. For both of the years I’ve done Extra Life, I’ve ultimately failed to reach the goal I’ve set. However, I want to help a good cause and my own personal hesitation and hangups are insufficient reason for me to drop my charity fundraising efforts.
So this year sees the creation of Team Dawnfire. My hope is to draw in other YouTubers, as well as anyone else who is interested in trying to raise funds for Extra Life. Each year, Extra Life grows larger and larger, and I want to do my part to make that possible.
So thanks for reading, and donate today!

Hey everyone! Osei here, just to talk about Extra Life a little, like I did on the show…and Twitter…and Facebook…and anywhere I have some influence.
If you weren’t already aware, this is the week leading up to the Extra Life Marathon on the 7th! This is, of course, the big day that many gamers choose to do marathon gaming sessions in order to raise funds. I’m no different. However, this year I have decided to do a stream daily (over on my channel at Twitch) in an attempt to raise a little more awareness of this year’s charity event.
After all, I’m only halfway to my my goal of $500, so every bit of effort counts!
However, I need your help. In order to increase the number of potential donations I receive, that requires that people actually watch my livestreams. It’s much harder to be noticed when you have zero viewers. Even if you yourself don’t want to watch me be okay at video games, perhaps you know someone who does. Sharing goes a long way to getting the word out!
Besides the coming livestream today, I will also be doing a twelve hour stream on Saturday. I hope you’ll drop by for that as well as I play some Dungeons and Dragons and Left 4 Dead 2 (among others)!
As always, thank you for your support and I hope to see you around on Twitch!
