Funcom employee Funcom Event for Charity

Funcom is proud to announce their support for Extra Life with multiple gaming events tied into their flagship titles to raise awareness and donations for the ‘Children’s Miracle Network’. Players and fans alike will be able to participate in this year’s events on ‘Age of Conan: Unchained’, ‘Anarchy Online’ and Funcom’s upcoming MMO co-published by Electronic Arts (EA), ‘The Secret World’ to give back to a good cause.

Extra Life is a 24-hour video game marathon that raises money to help kids at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Players pick games to play, find sponsors to donate a small fee per hour to play those games and together raise money for a local hospital of their choosing.

Funcom will host multiple events on October 15th, 2011 for awesome prizes like The Secret World Beta Access to raise awareness and donations for Extra Life. These events will also help encourage players to take action and through them, promote the charity to their friends and family. Together, Funcom and their players will help raise funds for children all over the world.

To find out more information about Funcom’s events to help promote Extra Life, then please visit the Anarchy Online official website.

I think the requirements section at your page is missing the actual requirements?

Quote:
The Requirements

Fans who wish to have their chance to win The Secret World Beta Access and other great prizes will need to register here to become a participant and join the team represented by Funcom on the Extra Life official website. Once completed, you will need to input the following details into your Fundraising Page (example) that will be listed under your name on Extra Life:

These details will help us determine who is playing for charity in Age of Conan and Anarchy Online when we complete a random giveaway throughout the 24-hour marathon. You can check out Famine's Fundraising Page for an example of what your page should look like after your registration.

Nope, the requirements is that you have to register, ensure the information listed is on your fundraising page and be in game. If you do not register, have the correct information on your page, then you will not meet the requirements of receiving a prize.

The idea is that you become a participant and help raise money through your friends and family as well play the game for 24-hours for charity.

It states Age of Conan or Anarchy Online. I'll make it clear it's for any server now.

Great idea! I'd love to login for hours and hours, I don't think my wife and family would be too happy though

What timezone are you using for the 24 hour period? If I play from 7pm-12pm EST on the 15th and you use GMT, then I wouldn't actually qualify at all.

Who says you have to play just log in on your laptop and set it in a corner somewhere

This is one charity though, but what about the environmental impact of thousands of players all sitting with their PCs sucking out 300watt + for 24 hours?

Some things are prohibited like, you can be Professional with your title. But maybe they will take AWAY our custom titles and then be all OMG WE ARE GIVING YOU A PRIZE THAT WE TOOK AWAY!

I'd rather have an ingame tshirt with the logo for the charity on it.

Well then, I have certainly signed up.

http://www.extra-life.org/participant/protege

^ Donate people! :P

I just copy and pasted, with a bit of editing, Famines' personal message. In any case, I believe it gets the message through thoroughly and I don't feel I could've summed it up any better. Hopefully I get some donations, and I'll definitely be spreading the word to my fellow gamers. Hell, I've been up 2 days straight already, this should be a breeze!

We will give prizes during the 24-hours, not after.

Times do say 8am PDT, which would be 11am EDT.

A couple of weeks heads up notice to reach out to raise money and arrange schedules would be appreciated next year. That way those of us with real life commitments can participate too, hopefully :/

Nonetheless, this is a great initiative!! +1 for this, FC!

We will try to do this early next year. We just happen to hear about the event pretty late and scrambled to get something going. Thus far, it's been going very well. We hit the top 10 spot for the top 10 teams in the charity to raise the most donations last night with over $7,000 raised.

Event starts in 2 hours on all servers for Anarchy Online and Age of Conan.
