Extra Life, Posters & LifeAloha folks!

I'm sorry it took so long for me to wrap up our Extra Life event last weekend. I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and love from our community and it just got lost in the process.

That being said... holy crap I love this community. As of right now, team Rooster Teeth has raised $343,500 supporting Children's Miracle Network hospitals across the country. That is incredible. When Geoff and I did Extra Life in 2010, we were psyched to raise $20,000 for the whole event. When Matt threw down his donation matching, we raised $22,000 in fifteen minutes. That is incredible.

On top of that, we sold over 15,000 limited edition posters, of which, all the proceeds are going to the Dell Children's Hospital here in Austin.

Let me talk about the posters for a second. We initially bought 2,000 to put in our warehouse, thinking we'd sell about that many... obviously that number was demolished. We then had to put in an order for an additional 13,000 posters which took some time to get printed and shipped, and now our warehouse is compiling orders for all of them. This will take a while and I appreciate your patience in the process. You should hopefully be getting your posters this week if you ordered them during the stream. Those photos you see on Twitter and here on the site are probably from the initial run of 2,000. We're sorry for the delay, but I promise you, it's worth it. The poster is incredible.

For those of you in the Austin area, myself and a few other folks from the Rooster Teeth team will be at the Domain Microsoft Store on the 21st (next Thursday) to do a check presentation to Dell Children's and to pick up all of our Xbox Ones that we bought. The event starts at 10:00pm and we'll be hanging around for a bit. Come by, say hello and pick up your console with us.

On a semi-lame kind of note... we managed to break YouTube's DVR functionality of our Extra Life stream. While we broadcasted for almost 25 hours straight, the auto-recording feature of the stream got corrupted and unfortunately we couldn't record it on our end due to the massive amounts of data pumping through. That being said, unless a miracle happens at YouTube, we will unfortunately not be able to release the entire stream for rewatching. There are a few folks out there that managed to capture some highlights and I suggest you search for them! There was some good stuff out there. I am truly sorry that we don't have it! If anything changes, I'll let you know

Now then, I have to get back to preparing for a wedding tomorrow morning. Did you know that flowers are expensive and there are thousands of different kinds of them? Whew!

I love you all, I love this community, I love my company and most of all I love @Caiti. Best wishes to all of you, see you next week!

None of it would have been possible without your hard work and determination advertizing and starting this up, Jack. Hats off to you.

Sucks about the Youtube stuff. Crossing my fingers that some miracle happens and you get the footage.

Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to Extra Life, Jack! You inspired so many in this community, including myself, to participate. While I didn't raise much, I was happy to be a part of it. Let's double it next year, eh?

Congratulations on the wedding! It's hard, but try to relax and enjoy it. (Pass that advice on to Caiti too. I'm sure she needs it also!)

I'm bummed out that I won't be able to rewatch the entire stream at a later date, but at least I caught 90% of it the first time!

You guys are amazing and you've done so much for the kids.

#FortheKidz #2Spooky the stream was awesome, I wished I could've watched it all but the need for sleep overtook me. It was so fun and I can't wait to get the poster. Can't wait till the next time you do an Extra Life stream!

I like how we managed to make it a Bungie reference. 343

Calling a Halo reference would be more accurate, and Halo is basically the reason Rooster Teeth even exists at this point, so that's a cool and relevant number!

That I can completely agree with.

Being able to watch almost all of the stream was such a wonderful experience, and I can scarcely believe the amount RoosterTeeth raised for charity! You are all amazing.

Have a wonderful time with the wedding. You deserve it. :)

As a guy who spent a lot of time in the hospital as a kid, thank you and everyone else who helped out. I gladly donated as I was watching Michael destroy some lava cakes and I was so happy to see Rooster Teeth and the community support this cause.

#20  Posted 1 year ago
That stream was the best 25 hours of my life (yes I watched the whole thing). I seriously hope you're doing it again next year or sometime soon, because I'd love to donate again!

Loved the event, too bad the video got corrupted. But hey, enough community members who probably recorded it (wish I did). Also feel sorry for not buying a poster :(

Have fun at your wedding!

Like I said on other posts, I was watching and playing games "with" you guys at RT. Being a cancer survivor I always have a weakness for donating to things like this.

It's all down to you, Jack. Without you spear heading the entire event, none of that would have happened, so congratulations on raising so much for charity.

Good luck and best wishes for tomorrow too. I hope you and Caiti have a wonderful day to start off an amazing life together.

The stream was great fun to watch, sad to hear about it not being recorded. From the sound of it I missed the best bits (Michael and lava cakes, Gavin and hot sauce and Drunk Burnie).
That said THANK YOU!!!!!
