In 2021, the UAT Extra Life Stream Team participated in the Extra Life Game Day event, and throughout November and December raised over $2,900 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Based on the support and experience, we have decided to participate throughout 2022 leading up to the 2022 November Game Day Event.
The team used January to do some planning, and February to recruit UAT streamers. We have decided to reserve the first weekend of each month as our team stream day and eased into the events in March with a few test streams. April will represent the launch of our streaming events with new streamers joining the team throughout the year. As team captain, I have chosen to stream every weekend on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time to support the cause. For stream links and donations, please visit my Extra Life Donation Page at https://www.extra-life.org/participant/DeconstructionGaming.
View the UAT team page at https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=60033. There you can join the team, watch the streams, and make donations.
So far in 2022, the UAT Extra Life Stream Team has 14 participants and is ranked 236 out of 1,112 registered teams in total donations. We have set a 2022 goal at $5,000 and hope you can join us in supporting a great cause, raising money to help local Children’s Hospitals change kids’ health. Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them.
