A Sincere Thank You

How sincere can I be? There is so much to say here, and I am going to make an attempt to say it all. Sure, I could try to thank each and every one of you on Twitter. HAH! There is no room for that at all, so I’m going to use this platform instead.

Yesterday, ArrowsofCara and I ran my first ever Extra-Life stream. I had every intention of doing one of these streams during summer, but I never got around to planning it. Well, we started at 8 o’clock yesterday morning and then we ended up going for 16 hours. We started the day sitting at $1060 in my current Extra-Life goal with the intention and desire of reaching $2000.

I’m going to be completely honest and say that I had my doubts. It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving; one day after Black Friday. How could we compete with that?

You all completely blew my mind. You really did.

All proceeds from yesterday went towards our goal. Every dime. Those bits and subs and tip went straight towards it at the end of the stream and I have zero regrets about it. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Enough of all of that, though. Let’s get down to what I’m really here for.

Donut2677 – Thank you so very much for starting us off with that raid. You seriously got us off on the right foot.
Pardie1973 – You, sir, have always been an amazing friend. Pardie on!

KySamoan – Thank you for that raid! You’re awesome, man!
typicaldude101 – You’ve been hanging out in-stream now since almost the beginning of this journey. You’ve turned into a good friend and you’ve been a pleasure to have around. Man, thank you so much for that, and thank you for those bits!
EvilGojiBerries – What can I say other than “Eat a dick!” Seriously, though, thank you for those bits and sub!
RonMartzGaming – You’ve been a recent addition to the stream, but dammit, I’m glad to have you. Two things here. One, thank you so much for those bits. Two… YOU CANNOT HAVE JAKE!
PCopeland – The Amazing Mod (not my mod, though :P). Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for hanging out! And for those bits!
twins2 – Thank you for those bits! Thanks for hanging out as long as you did yesterday!
stleth – Thank you for those bits, you BOT! LMAO
MissFiasco – Thank you for hanging out and for those bits! I’m glad that we’ve met you!
U_S_Ace – Thank you so much for being a friend. Seriously. You worked a good portion of those holiday weekend and you still found time to stop in and hang out for a bit. AND thank you for the bits! ๐Ÿ™‚
Fostary – Thank you for bringing your friends in with that raid!
Daveness85 – Man, I was AFK when you raided and I hate that! Ugh! But, thank you so much for that raid! Things like that mean a great deal!
HoloAnimatorBB – Thank you for that raid, you wonderfully crazy human!
Kypsie – THANK YOU for the clip of BabyJava and the bits! The clip seriously made our day!
ElySweetAngel – Thank you for that raid and for hanging out!
SophieStorm26 – Thank you for those bits!
StandardDamage – Thank you for raiding JavaJunkie earlier in the evening! I’ll get to why in a moment.

Thank you, guys, so much for all of the raids, hosts, and new follows! If I missed anyone I apologize profusely! Well, I have omitted a few people but there is a reason for that. There are some people that I need to thank a little differently.

I’ve often said that I can’t be broken. I’ve been cracked once, but not broken. Guess what? You guys took care of that last night. You really did. Funny story. I’m breaking myself typing all of this up.

clutchy404 – You, sir, are one of the MVPs of yesterday. You came in late (You planned that, didn’t you?) and finished things off for us. Thank you so very much for that. You’ve been amazing in the time that I’ve known you. You invited me into Nerd Force Gaming early on and made me one of the first streamers on the team. I’ve always thought that was a mistake, but you believe in me and I thank you for that as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

OzzyTheGeek – Dude, you were a beast last night. Thank you so much for helping both Cara and me in reaching our goals. You… Yeah, I’m not even sure what to say other than don’t forget to talk to Acidstripez about those paintings! Seriously. Thank you so much for hanging out yesterday! And, of course, thank you for the generous contributions to my Extra Life campaign. You, sir, absolutely kick ass.

Kingofthelair – Dragon, you’ve been with me since day one. You were my first follower on Twitch and you’ve been hanging out in almost every single one of my streams. I made you a mod without even asking you, but you never complained. Not even once. Thank you so much for being such a great friend. Seriously. I wouldn’t be where I am without you. Thank you for the tip and the bits, man. More importantly, thank you for being you. This goes for Afreetdragon as well. Make sure that she knows that I appreciate the hell out of her presence!

JavaJunkie – Well, I already thanked Kypsie up there. Man, you came in like a wrecking ball with that raid last night. I was so fuckin’ happy that Jamie raided you after his stream. You deserve the hell out it! Thank you so much for bringing everyone over afterward. Thank you for becoming a friend. Seriously. It means a lot!

Acidstripez – What can I say to you that I haven’t already said? You’ve been an amazing addition to my life. The last three years of my life have been enhanced by having you in it. What you’ve done for me and my son has been nothing short of amazing. You really are like a little sister to me, and even though I may be distant at times know that I do love you. Seriously. And thank you for offering up paintings for those donators. You are a very talented artist and an absolutely wonderful human. Never change, girl. Got it?

ArrowsofCara – You came into my life just… what? A couple of months ago? It’s absolutely amazing what we’ve managed to accomplish in such a short time. You’re amazing. Your kids are amazing. You’ve done nothing but lift me up with your belief in me. I know that you’re going to argue this, but, again, your help is really what got this stream up off the ground and running. It started out as your idea. You did a lot of the planning and a lot of the ideas were yours. I love you for so many reasons other than just that, though. I don’t really want to push a whipped cream pie into your face, but the viewers want that. You do know that, right? Thank you so much for coming into my life. Thank you for not letting me throwing everything that we have away.

With all of that being said, I did want to save what I consider to be the best for last. These are all of the people who donated to the campaign directly. I’m not going to apologize for naming you. You did that when you donated. ๐Ÿ˜›

I cannot thank you all enough for what you did yesterday.

Now, I’m going to stop being so wordy and try to get some things done. There may even be some resting, too.


Thank you all for making this the best stream I have ever had. And by that, I mean both in stats and atmosphere and everything in between.
