Hey everyone in the Giant Bomb Community! It's that time of the year that we get the word out about Giant Bomb's efforts to raise money for Extra Life! Right now there's only about twenty-ish days between now and the start of Extra Life's Game Day which is set for November 4th. As we get closer to the start of the event, I will try to use this thread to relay the staff plans and ways you can support them.
However, with this still in the early stages, what we really need is MORE TEAM MEMBERS! Even if you can only stream on one day and only for a handful of hours, every bit and member counts! Below you will find the link to the team page. If you cannot stream, please consider checking out all of the people who have signed up for Extra Life this year and donate to the user pages to help us make sure that EVERYONE has at least ONE DONATION! We want there to be ZERO PEOPLE on our team with $0 raised!
Also, I and the rest of the Giant Bomb moderation team will use the site chat to swap user streams for you to watch and support. If you plan to stream on Game Day, drop a comment in this thread with your date and times and I'll try to keep you in the chat rotation if possible.
