FunCom Extra Life Campaign final results

Well folks, first and foremost, hats off to my wife Laura Roberts who worked 27 hours straight through on AoC to raise funds for the Extra Life 2012 campaign for children's hospitals charity. During that time she was able to raise $135 towards helping out with the Charity. This was great work and showed a lot of mental toughness and stamina to pull through the whole way. Originally it was supposed to be 24 hours but she got an early start so went the distance for 27 hours to make it to the finish line. Outstanding work from one of The Ghost Wolves!

Over all, participants from all FunCom games were a total of 211 people with the highest donation of over $460 USD. Total amount raised as of this time was well over $5,000. They were making a goal of $10,000 so maybe next year more will join in. The announcement came  a bit a go on The Voice of Crom for AoC players. With such short notice I think it was still a success and still helps some youngsters out. Perhaps next year we will see more activity on this subject.

This still speaks well of many community members who actually care about things beyond their own selfish concerns and it's a proud day to see any success. It is my hope that continued efforts will help band folks together for next year and the years to come.

Be looking for us next year, perhaps we will try to get more of our Ghostwolves involved into it and help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Extra Life 2012 Charity Drive for AoC

Hey folks,

Alot has been happening in the Ghostwolves. We have progressed throug all of W2 BRC and working on W3. Our raiding has been pretty constant so I've been busy as hell as a guild leader, sorry for the lack of posts. I will be discussing Patch 3.4 and my thoughts on the Bear Shaman which I have been very pleased with on the PvE side.

But on to my real topic here. Recently, my wife Laura who is also my co guild leader signed up for a charity game play marathon of 24 hours straight. This was to help obtain money for some children's hospitals across the nation. She is currently on hour 4 of 24 hours and we at the Ghostwolves are rooting for her success. I think it's important for the community to give back to others in need when possible, especially when it is for children in dire need of medical assistance. If you feel you would like to send a small donation (even $1.00 USD) to this worthy cause, know it is for youngsters who's family cannot always afford the medical care they need. Please support if you feel inclined, or even give a shout out in game to Pantherias of The Ghostwolves to keep her motivated to make it all the way through the entire 24 hours. Moral support if not monetary is a huge thing today and brings further awareness of what we are trying to help with. Thanks all!

Donations can be sent to the following link:

oh, make sure when you hit Donate button to search for Laura Roberts, that will take you to her donate point and you can send in whatever amount you desire!
