Extra Life 2017: The Stretch Goals

      No Comments on Extra Life 2017: The Stretch Goals

Extra Life 2017 is on November 4th and this is my fourth year taking part. The graphic below shows you how much has been raised so far and is a direct link to the donation page.

This year, my goal is to raise $730 which is the total amount of money I have raised over the first three years that I have taken part. New this year as well is “stretch goals” that I will go through with if we hit certain personal fund raising milestones…

$300 – Go… Oilers?!

$300 is kind of a big deal for most Extra Life participants because it’s the mark they need to hit to get their limited edition t-shirt for GameDay. I’ve proudly hit this mark the last two years and this year’s shirt is really nice. If I hit this, you know I’m wearing this on GameDay, but what about my head or even my face?

If I hit this mark, I’ll wear an Edmonton Oilers hat AND have an Oilers peel-on tattoo on my face.

I’m a Jets fan. This will be near sacrilege for me. But it’s For The Kids, so I’ll gladly do it if it gets Edmontonians to donate!

$500 – White Hair, Don’t Care

I’m a few months away from 40 years old and I already sport quite a bit of grey hair both on my head and in the beard… When we hit this mark, I am just going to speed that process up by dyeing my hair (both head and beard) completely white from the time we hit this goal right until gameday itself.

$730 – Give It Away Now!

The ultimate goal! As a ‘Thank You’ to everyone who helped get me here, I’m going to enter everyone who has donated and given me contact info of some sort into a draw for the following:

$50 – XBox, PlayStation or Steam Gift Card.
(More to come)

$1000 – Tattoo Me!

If a cool G is raised by the end of the official Extra Life Game Day (2:00 PM MST on November 5th) I’ll get an Extra Life logo tattooed on my right arm. What will it look like? A little something like this…

Beyond $1000…?

Let’s just focus on getting to $1000, but as we get closer more goals will be added for sure.
