Extra Life Goal Met! Thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported my Extra Life campaign and to everyone who hung out with me on stream!

It was my first year participating in Extra Life and we not only hit the goal, we passed it with $142 raised. In total, Extra Life participants raised over $7 million for the Children’s Miracle Network. That’s amazing.

If you donated at least $10 to the campaign, sketch rewards have already been sent out so check your email. The $20 reward (hi-res artwork) will be going out in a few weeks.
