Child's Play 2009 - the fundraiser has returned! (in Public Record)


Charity December 12 2009 11:16 PM EST

Welcome to the Child's Play Charity 2009 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 time we put together $538 for the children. Let's try to beat that previous achievement! The way this charity works is simple: You send a CBD or item donation to the Charity account character, ChildsPlay2009, 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 www.carnageblender.com - so whether you can spend USD or simply can donate CBD, you can help give to the children!

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.

Important links:

Donation Character 1: ChildsPlay2009
Other donation characters will be added here if needed. 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
CB's Child's Play 2007 Charity: Child's Play 2007, CB Donations


We're getting a late start this year, but please give generously! It is unlikely that we can get this donation in before year's end, but regardless, the children will benefit from the money donated! Thanks in advance, fellow Blenders, for your compassion and your generosity!

If you don't have CB dollars to give, but you'd like to donate anyway, you can either donate directly to the Child's Play website and note that it is on behalf of carnageblender.com, or send the money to the PayPal address GreatnateOB@Gmail.com, where the rest of the Child's Play USD will be gathered for the donation later.

There's the first little bit to get it started. Unfortunately, I recently upgraded my ELB and spent the few million I had.

Thanks Demigod! Here's a bump to keep this thread visible.

There's a bit more. :)

QBJohnnywas December 13 2009 4:23 AM EST

Here's an idea: When the current tourney is over, what about an admin transfer all items and cash to the Child's Play donations? Or at least disenchant all the items and make use of the CBD, instead of it going into retirement? Seeing as it will be Christmas when this one finishes?

I should be able to make a USD donation.

Can we actually do what JW is proposing? Would be nice to see the money going to something worthwhile.

C'mon, donate! Surely the CB community can find it within their hearts to give up a little of their hard-earned wealth to make the day bright for a few children?

Alas, I am usually not one for donating. But maybe it's time for me to start fixing that. Let's do this people! It's for a good cause!

I'm a little disappointed in the CB community. C'mon, folks. This is a wonderful cause. To those of you who have been trying unsuccessfully to sellout, you might consider doing something nice with that greed.

Wait... was Hatch's odd donation an attempt to get us to a rounded 43,000,000? Feeling OCD lately, Hatch?

If you don't have CB dollars to give, but you'd like to donate anyway, you can either donate directly to the Child's Play website and note that it is on behalf of carnageblender.com, or send the money to the PayPal address GreatnateOB@Gmail.com, where the rest of the Child's Play USD will be gathered for the donation later.

I'll edit this into the first post, too.

After today, I'll begin auctioning off the items. I will disappear for a short while during this auctioning period (idk when for 100% certain) but you may feel free to continue sending in bids.

When the items auction ends, the CBD auction will begin, and I'll ask that everyone bid generously on the CBD available -- it's for the kids! :D

Thanks again, CB Community! I think we've got a solid chance of beating last time's donation amount!

The bundles of CBD will go up for sale shortly, probably tomorrow.

Do any of the potential buyers have suggestions for bundle size? 1, 2, 5, 10 million CBD per bundle? Let me know either via posting in the thread or by CM! :)

Miandrital January 3 2010 7:50 PM EST

5 mil bundles sound good
