Along with a couple of million websites, the Extra Life realm became unreachable by most people today due to an outage with our DNS registrar. While the site itself and the hardware it resides on wasn't affected at all, the outage may have caused your potential donors or new recruits to your team to throw up their hands and move on without getting engaged. If you sent out messaging today, we think it might be a smart idea to circle back with those folks to whom you've communicated.
Personally, I sent out about 2734 emails over the weekend to friends, family, and other contacts in hopes of catching them in a good mood on Monday morning.
I will probably re-send this communication tomorrow morning, as I am sure several of them probably clicked the DONATE link during our downtime.
But as of now, if you're reading this, the hamsters are back in their wheels and Extra Life has roared back to full capacity. Thank you for your patience. If one of us were responsible we'd trot them out to apologize to you, but for this one we've decided to pin the blame on Danica Patrick. (Kidding)
For the kids,
