THWACK Monthly Mission - December 2021

THWACK Replay - The Extra Life Mission

It’s time to hit that rewind key and go all the way back to the beginning of 2021. It’s been a whirlwind 365 days for everyone, but don’t you wish you had one more chance to do something different? Like if you pocketed that green and white mushroom? You may not get that chance in real life, but here on THWACK you do.

For December this year, we’ll be going back and giving everyone a second chance at those Monthly Mission questions where the community was stumped, and in the shortcut, we want feedback on the missions in general, so the SolarWinds teams can continue to make great missions for you in 2022.

And what’s better than a second chance? Giving someone else a second chance. For this very special THWACK mission, we’re partnering with Extra Life to provide children in need of medical care a way to better their own chances. For this month’s mission shortcut prize, we’ll be making a $500 USD donation in ONE lucky winner’s name to the Extra Life charity.

Now it’s time to go back to our last save point and start the THWACK Replay!
