Extra Life Fundraiser Call for Sponsors

Below is the 2022 Call for Sponsors graphic and the email I have been sending to publishers and industry companies about sponsoring the event.  


I know you probably get many solicitations for donations and I understand that you can't help everyone, so I'll keep this short and tell you why the 2022 Extra Life Charity Auction is an event you should support.

Every November GJJ Games, in partnership with There's Fun In Store - a local game store, runs several events to support Extra Life and raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  One of the events I run every year is a Charity Auction.  Both industry sponsors and local gamers donate games and gaming related items for inclusion in the auction.  We have had over 100 different industry sponsors support the event since 2017!

Why should you support this event?

  • 100% raised from sponsor donations goes to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (see how here).
  • CMN hospitals treat every patient that comes through their doors, regardless of the family's ability to pay.
  • Children’s hospitals have lost, on average, $67 million each month during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can help ensure all kids have quality healthcare when they need it.
  • The more people involved (as both sponsors and bidders) the more we can help to change kids' health and change the future.
  • This is the largest tabletop games related Extra Life Charity Auction in the world, raising over $15,000 since 2015!
  • Your company will be promoted to hundreds and even thousands of tabletop gamers via in-store promotions, social media channels, news outlets, the auction site, and more.
Keep reading to find out how to help this great cause.

TLDR: In 2021, 75 industry sponsors and local gamers helped raise over $6340 for charity!  Please join us again this year as we hope to grow the event even more.  If you're familiar with the event and want to help out in 2022, skip to the end for my shipping informationAnd head over to https://CharityAuction.bid/2022ExtraLife-GJJGames to follow along as I build out the auction throughout the summer.  Thank you!


In 2021 we had 75 sponsors, plus a handful of local gamers donate hundreds of items to the event, helping to raise a record $6343 for charity!  In 2022 I hope to keep the events growing!

It would be wonderful if your company would join this great cause and wonderful event. If possible, it would be great if you could help sponsor the 2021 event by donating:

  • One or more games (new or used)
  • Promo items or accessories
  • Swag
  • Or anything else

Sharing and promoting the event is also greatly appreciated, even if you can't support with donations.

In exchange for your support, you will be highlighted in the event pages and included in promotions of the event, both online and in-store.  If you have games available in the stores I have partnered with we will have special tags that identify your games as sponsor games.  This is a great opportunity to both promote your company and support a great cause! 

This year's Charity Auction will be from November 4 to November 11.  You can learn more about this year's event and past events here: https://charityauction.bid/2022ExtraLife-GJJGames
