To make an online donation, please search for one of the participants and then click the “Support This Participant” button on their page. Donations can only be made to individuals, but the total each participant raises goes toward our team goal.
Please help us meet our goal of $2,337. Every dollar helps.
As for the Rock Band, one of our students (Jared) pledged to sing a song for every dollar that someone donated to him. He ended up singing 122 songs, needless to say we had plenty of music all night long.
Haha you should get in touch with someone from 1986, Team Titanium, and see if you can get some of their students and Titan, their Guitar Hero playing robot to come out for next time. Sounds like this is an amazing event for charity, and I wish there was something like it we could do over in the Midwest. Or, at least, Midwest like Kansas-Missouri area, since I suppose Michigan IS Midwest.
Wish we could have done this; I’m laying the groundwork for next year. As a guy who has followed the Extra Life movement personally, I’ve seen it grow so much, to where it has raised over a million dollars and counting to fight pediatric cancer this year. Really proud of the work Scott Adams has put into it, as well as the rest of the ExL team.
Even though 422 didn’t do it this year, I encourage teams to get together and make this a joint charity event in 2012. All of your kids love video games, and it’d be a great environment for kids to hang out in without the stress in robotics competitions. Kids who aren’t on the team but in the area also love video games, and it could help rope them into FIRST.
