Extra Life Community Council

Extra Life is one of the top gaming fundraising programs in the country, and one way we stay relevant to our participants is by connecting with them and hearing their feedback. The Extra Life Community Council is a new initiative, and this council will serve as direct-to-participant communication to help the Extra Life team identify trends and opportunities to inform the Extra Life program.

This council will contribute to discussions with the Extra Life Community Manager, allowing for brainstorming and feedback sharing. This info will be shared with the Extra Life team to inform decision as we continue to improve the program.

The council members were selected based on a wide set of criteria by the Extra Life Community Manager. The criteria includes newer and veteran Extra Lifers, team captains, Guild Advisors, games industry professional, company team members, and fundraisers of all sizes. This is not a permanent position, and if it proves successful other Extra Lifers may be invited in the future. While you may not have been selected to be in the inaugural Extra Life Community Council, it is possible to be selected in the future.

Now, it is my pleasure to introduce the 16 members of the Extra Life Community Council!


SapphireFox is a mother of two small children in Northeast Ohio and a harbinger of chaos. Nothing is too icky, slimy or disgusting when it comes to charity, and she’s often times found pushing her limits for fundraising.


Kendrisite is a family creator that promotes innovation and creativity for all ages. He said, “as a US ARMY Veteran, I take family seriously. I love Extra Life, and I am looking forward to working together in the near future!”


“Hey, Hi, Hello! I’m BlairBears, an Extra Life Charity VTuber found primarily on Twitch! Everything I do is 100% for the benefits of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and I’m so glad to be on my 9th year of helping kids. I’m a VTuber because I like to keep my content family-friendly with a community that is wholesome and welcoming for all ages, so I wanted to represent myself in a fun and innovative way. With my model, I could turn into an actual Raccoon, change into any costume on command, and have fun donation incentives to help kids while putting a smile on our viewers’ face. Thank you to everyone for your support forever and always. Whether you’re donating, fundraising, or lurking in Twitch chat, you are making a HUGE difference in the lives of so many, and I am so heckin’ grateful.”

“Hey there, I’m SaltyPirate, a Canadian with a passion for my family, gaming and fundraising. Extra Life was the perfect fit! Over the past 9 years I’ve slowly increased my support for McMaster Children’s Hospital in an effort to show my girls how good it feels to help others in need. We love blending community impact with our family adventures. Like all Extra Lifers, I aim to make a genuine difference with my fundraising efforts and leave a positive mark in my community.”
