    Extra Life 2016, Team LOTRO, and November 5th marathon LOTROstream

    I will be coordinating my first year of fundraising for Extra Life, and wanted to provide information to any LOTRO players who would be interested in taking part in this charity event.

    On Saturday, November 5th from Noon until Midnight Eastern I will be playing LOTRO on Twitch.tv/LOTROstream, and raising money during that time.

    You can read more information about Extra Life, a nonprofit organization that raises money for Children's Miracle Network affiliated hospitals, by clicking here.

    To find my donation page: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/jerrysnook

    To sign up for Extra Life: http://www.extra-life.org/

    To Join Team LOTRO:
    http://www.extra-life.org/team/LOTRO

    I have set a personal goal of raising $3,000 for the Boston Children's Hospital, and have set a $10,000 goal for Team LOTRO. Since the LOTRO team is based in the Boston area, this hospital made sense, although you are of course welcome to select any hospital you wish to for your personal goal. I don't know that I or we will hit these goals, but they seemed like a good place to aim for. I know my own son once received care from the Boston Children's Hospital, and I think anyone who's been playing LOTRO for a while will be aware of Sapience's outstanding efforts to support these folks.

    There is an xSplit Plug-in for an Extra Life donation meter.

    YouTube video explaining how to get it: https://youtu.be/n1ZY_IkpM58
    For OBS: https://youtu.be/RhLBc_DdITo

    If you have joined Team LOTRO, you can select the display to show either your personal goal or the Team LOTRO goal.

    Incentives

    If you donate at least $2, you will be entered into the various drawings that are unlocked by Team LOTRO reaching certain milestones. If you donate to me or another Team LOTRO member, it counts!

    There's one important thing, though: Extra Life doesn't provide me with enough info to match your donation name to a forum/LOTRO community name, so if you donate and want to get a prize, please fill this out and PM it to me on the forums here:

    Donation name:
    Forum name (or Twitter handle, etc.):
    Character Name to receive the prize:
    Server the character is on:






    Without further ado, here are the incentives! My personal goal is to raise $3,000 this year for Extra Life, and I've set a Team LOTRO goal of $10,000:

    Group incentives:

    $1000 - Ten 500 Turbine Point codes will be randomly distributed to people who donate at least $2 to the fundraising effort through a random number generated drawing.
    $1500 - Ten Titles and Ghost Bears will be randomly sent to anyone who donates at least $2 through a randomly generated award method.
    $2000 - Ten more 500 Turbine Point codes will be randomly distributed to folks who donate $2+.
    $2500 - Ten more Titles and Ghost Bears for $2+ donors.
    $3000 - The big event! If we hit this milestone, me + whoever else I can rope in(no promises other than me) will take part in an event on every server, times/locations to be determined. This will be me celebrating with you + whatever else we can make happen!

    Done! We've crushed it. Thank you.


    Individual incentives:

    $5 - Forum Title of your choice, within the community guidelines. PM me with your desired choice. If you already have a custom title, I can add another!
    $10 - Custom Forum Avatar - Let me know what you want your avatar to be, and I'll do my best to make it happen.
    $20 - In-Game Hero of the Small Folk title.
    $30 - Ghost Bear pet certificates: I will mail you up to three Ghost Bear certificates to various characters you'd like on whatever server(s) you want.

    $100 - I will be honored to hang out with you and/or your Kin in-game. While there are certain rules I cannot break (things that hurt the game world, giving out loot, leveling people up, etc. - mostly common sense stuff), I will be able to give away a couple of things, and I will of course be open to any and all Q&A.

    All incentives are cumulative, so if you donate $30, you also get the benefits of the lower tiers. I will be taking donations through the end of the year.


    Sincerely,
    Jerry Snook

    I just wanted to thank the folks who have donated so far. I've had a couple of large donations, and it means a lot to me. FYI, I am putting together a list of incentives as well, and anyone who donates prior to the list being published will absolutely be eligible for whatever tiers are put together.

    Incentives added! Check out the OP to read more. FYI, anyone who's already donated will of course receive this stuff. Delivery time will depend on my free time in the coming weeks and months, but hopefully I'll get the first batch out next week.

    Sorry for my ignorance, I've never participated before. Must I join Team LOTRO to donate, or can I just donate through your page?

    You should give Beornings an option for Ghost skin or Ghost bear pet! That would be very cool to add!

    Good to see this kind of thing happening and even smarter to get community involved with some incentives.
    Made a modest donation. Hope you reach your target!

    Some giveaways at random. But mostly messing around and having some fun!

    Hey, Cordovan -

    I tried sending you a PM but it hasn't shown up in my "sent" folder. I'm Elindis on Landroval, and I joined Team LOTRO as well.

    Thank you to everyone who stopped by yesterday's livestream! We hit our goal of $3,000 yesterday evening, which is tremendous. I will be working over the next week or so when I have some free time to get everyone their codes for things, and will do the group incentives drawings in early January, as I'm taking donations through the end of the year.

    If you haven't donated, there's still plenty of time. Best of luck to everyone doing Extra Life stuff in the coming days and weeks!

    Gooooo Team LOTRO!

    This time of year is always hardest for some: Either you are away from your loved ones, or money is tight because of all the gifts and added expense of the Holiday Season...but just think of these kids, who are already going through a serious, serious time in their lives. Perfect time to give them an Extra Life I won't miss those extra few Peppermint Mochas (toooo much, I'll live) but these kids will have a brighter holiday and future because of us

    This community, its members, and what we all band together to do is one of the reasons LOTRO has the best community out there

    GOOO TEAM LOTRO GOOO!

    Correct. I'll be doing the drawing shortly after the new year, and will be happy to do individual incentives through the end of this year as well.

    Hi Cordovan, thanks for doing this! Last year Sapience was giving away a bunch of steeds and titles for donating and I missed out. Any chance of adding those to this year's goodie list, maybe at the $50 mark or something? That would certainly tempt me and probably others into a bigger donation.

    Yeah, if they added the little tundra cub pet to donations at 50$ then I´d certainly donate another 20$

    I've sent out dozens of PMs to folks today, but still have dozens more to go. This is a good thing! Will have to continue getting people their stuff next week. Thank you again, everyone, for your generous donations.

    Shoot, I'm sad I missed this. I was keeping an eye out for it, too! I need to read the forums more often.

    Glad it was a good year. (:

    You can still donate and get the rewards.
