Guess what viewers?! It's PBD's 3rd anniversary!
We're all pretty excited here at PBD, and it's hard to believe that's it's already been three years of operation (Most of us had lost count, to be honest). Typically, we haven't really done anything in the past to celebrate our collective birthday (it's more of a birth month, but you get the idea; our ACTUAL birthday is October 27th, in case you card though). But this year, we thought we'd change things up a bit...
PBD IS DOING A CHARITY EVENT, WHAT?!?!
That's right! For our 3rd Anniversary, PBD will be participating in Extra-Life's charity event starting in November! Here are all the details:
What: Extra-Life is a charity organization where you and a group of people can get together and raise money by streaming games consistently for 25 hours straight. The funds raised go to the streamers' local children's hospital (in our case, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia).
When: Nationally, the event starts on November 2nd at 8:00 A.M. and runs until November 3rd at 9:00 A.M. While we would like to participate on the national day, many of us will not be available that day, so instead, we'll be doing our's the weekend after. Our stream will start at 6:00 P.M. on Friday, November 9th and we will conclude the event with our weekly episode of The Fellowship of the Flame. The stream should last anywhere from 27 to 30 hours, depending on how long our Dungeons and Dragons game lasts.
Extra Details: Our goal is to raise at least $150.00. If it's possible, we'd love to totally demolish that goal, but as a relatively small site, we don't want to set impossibly high goals. Click here to go to our page on Extra-Life. The donation is tax deductible (if you care about that). So far, Peter (The Steamworks), Chazz (Shatterblog!), and Eric (The Red Viking) are signed on for the event (this list will be updated as more PBD members sign on). WE ARE CURRENTLY ACCEPTING DONATIONS EVEN BEFORE THE ACTUAL EVENT! To donate, click on a team member at the bottom of the page, and click the big orange "Support Me!" button (or just click here). None of your money goes through our hands (physically and virtually), so you are 100% ensured that it is sent to CHOP.
The PBD Radio tab has been updated with the schedule for this special event. All of us here are really excited to make a difference, and we encourage you folks to come out, join us on the livestream, have some fun, and of course to contribute whatever is affordable for you. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave a comment here, Tweet us @BetterDolphin, or email us.
Thanks for being with us for 3 years!
