Child's Play Charity 2007 - for the children! (in Public Record)

QBOddBird December 5 2007 3:07 PM EST

Welcome to the Child's Play Charity 2007 thread!

Each year, Penny Arcade asks for donations from gamers to help provide games and toys for children's hospitals for the sick children to play on. We here at Carnage Blender are now entering December, and it is almost at the end of the year! Let's show our generosity and help the children this year...

Last year we managed to put together nearly $400 for the children. The way this charity works is simple: You send a CBD or item donation to the Charity account character, ChildsPlay2007, and at the end of this Charity event we will sell the CBD collected for USD to the highest bidders. I will then collect the USD on my PayPal account and send it in to Child's Play as a donation on behalf of - so whether you can spend USD or simply can donate CBD, you can help give to the children!

Important links:

Edit: OB will be managing the Child's Play user account called Charity. Please use this account as your first drop off point for any donations.

Donation Character 1: ChildsPlay2007
Donation Character 2: CharityOverflow2007
The Child's Play Website: Child's Play
CB's Child's Play 2005 Charity: Child's Play 2005, CB Donations
CB's Child's Play 2006 Charity: Child's Play 2006, CB Donations

Remember, we're getting a late start this year, so please give so that we can get this donation in before year's end! Thanks in advance, fellow Blenders, for your compassion and your generosity!

If there's no room when you attempt to send an item, please send it to my Donation Overflow Character, found under important links (thanks to the admins who help edit my thread, because I ALWAYS forget something!)

[RX3]Cotillion December 5 2007 3:57 PM EST

Good luck.

Ulord[NK] December 5 2007 3:59 PM EST

What's the deadline for the donation?

AdminG Beee December 5 2007 5:49 PM EST

As with previous years, if anyone wants to donate any unused characters, (that are worth something) then I'm sure I speak for the rest of the admins when I say just let us know and we'll make the xfrs happen at zero cost.

Xfrs to and from Charity will be covered.

Hyrule Castle December 5 2007 6:15 PM EST

I have made 2 more characters for items to be sent to ChildsPlayCharity2 and ChildsPlayCharity3

So if OOB's overflow char is full, send items there

Darkwalker [Jago] December 5 2007 9:17 PM EST

Another 1mil.....

Hyrule Castle December 6 2007 4:35 PM EST

good job guys keep the donations comin

Charity December 6 2007 6:17 PM EST

Thanks to everyone for your generosity, and thanks to Beee for his helpfulness and the usage of the Charity account! Keep 'em coming, I think I'll start a Charity sale in a day or so to get these items shifting!

th00p December 6 2007 7:18 PM EST

Over the past two years we have raised almost $1300 for the sick children.

Ulord[NK] December 6 2007 9:11 PM EST

Hey guys. I'm wondering if you would take paypal donations. I am running tight in CB cash and I wouldn't mind pitching in 20 bucks. The only thing is that I'll have to use credit card. Is that cool?

QBOddBird December 6 2007 9:19 PM EST

That's totally acceptable, though my PayPal can only take a few CC transactions/year and some of the money is lost along the way due to PayPal fees. ^_^ I'll CM you with details as to where to send the money.

Charity December 7 2007 1:31 AM EST

I think this thread, above all others, deserves a great big BUMP!

Thanks again to all the generous donators!

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] December 7 2007 11:44 AM EST

Sent 1mil. :)
Hope this goes well!

QBOddBird December 7 2007 1:50 PM EST

Thanks Marlfox!

The links are now updated so that they point to the Charity account. Please send all donations to Charity! Thanks to all of you who are donating and who have donated in the past! We're now up to a total of nearly 12.5M combined total, plus donated items and characters! Keep it up, I'll be making a FS/WTB thread some time soon for the characters on Charity!

Off the Active Threads. Back on it goes!

Charity December 10 2007 10:37 PM EST

So far there is 21 million liquid donations and 5 million in bids on the item donations for this Charity sale...I would like to thank the CB community again for its generosity!

One more bump for the thread - remember, after the items sale, there will be a CBD sale of all that has been collected by the community, and the product of this will be sent to the Child's Play Charity. Again, thanks to all you giving gamers!

QBPixel Sage (Bank of Carnage) Charity (ChildsPlay2007) $10000000 -- Go children! 1:12 AM EST

While this site is half-new and half-old due to the engine, I don't think I deserve the prize money for the contest over a year ago. Children deserve it more =). I'll decide what to do with the other $10mil. Of course, winter break coming up! Meaning more time. I hope. 3 weeks this time (as opposed to 1 week).

Hyrule Castle December 11 2007 1:21 AM EST

wow nice job guys :)

Kids are gonna be happy this year!

th00p December 12 2007 3:31 PM EST

Sent 300k more. Can never help the kids enough.
