Heeeeeelloooooooo Potatoes of GRG - Took me forever to finally get access to the new Forums, but here I am!
It’s that time of year.
As usual the GRG Community was a huge supporter of my Extra Life Campaign in 2022!! You folks came through like CHAMPS for my fundraising efforts and helped me exceed my initial fundraising goal last year ($1,250). My goal for this year has started out at $1,250 which is aggressive based on last year’s total campaign and a single $1,000 donor. I’m already halfway there with $651 raised at the time of publication. I have a few big Milestones at $750 and $1,000 total for the year. In addition to the BBQ Sauce I also have some other more fun and interactive incentives for my gaming sessions. I’m also giving away Xbox Gift Cards, Amazon Gift Cards and others during my streams. Check me out on Twitch and all you have to do is make at least one (1) $5 donation to be eligible for the drawings. There are over $1,000 worth of gaming/grilling/shopping items in the War Chest of Charity (Raffles Prizes)
For you repeat customers, if any of you are jonesing for some more “World Famous” BBQ sauce (well at least GRG Famous) I got you covered. For noobs, Extra Life is a grassroots fundraising campaign where gamers raise money for their affiliated CMN Children’s Hospital through marathon game play, gameplay incentives or maker items (like BBQ Sauce, Dice or even artwork). This is the Ninth year I’ve been participating, and the GRG Community is what got me connected with Extra Life way back when.
As in past years there are incentives for GRG members to purchase BBQ Sauce via a donation to my EL fundraiser. For those that are new, this money goes directly to my local hospital (Phoenix Children’s Hospital) and I cover the production and shipping cost of the sauce (which have steadily increased year over year).
Children’s Miracle Network does great things all over the country, so even if you don’t end up participating or purchasing anything, please take the time to go learn about Extra Life (and Victoria Enmon) and how long CMN has been helping sick kids plus how much they’ve raised since inception.
There are Three (3) flavor varieties;
Hot – Abomination (Pineapple, Jalapeno & Habanero)
Super Hot – Chupacabra (Apricot, Habanero & Ghost Peppers)
Ridiculously Hot - Baron Samedi (Peach, Turbinado Brown Sugar and Carolina Reapers)
I’ll link to past threads about heat, quality, etc…
