On Saturday, January 9, if there are not bids on all of the current bundles, I will likely split several up into 1M bundles. This is to ensure that all of the CBD is sold for USD.

This sale will end in one week, January 11. At that time, the winning bidders will send their USD to my PayPal account for accumulation, I will send out the CBD bundles, then I will send in the donation to Child's Play on behalf of

Bid generously, it's for a good cause! :D

Edit: Since I use a free PayPal account, I can only accept up to 5 credit card payments. Paypal is highly preferred. :)

1 CC slot will be taken up by Wraithlin.

if its an auction shouldn't this be under FS section of forum how is this a contest? if you gotta pay...secondly if this is for a GOOD CAUSE why don't u write that on top instead of making it being an auction BOLD and actually write a line or two about what the cause is. When currently CB to USD is selling for US2.25 per 1 Mill CB, how can u justify your higher prices? You have to tell us what this cause is and such....

Demigod January 4 2010 2:08 PM EST

It's for Child's Play; it's in contests rather than FS/WTB so we can follow and track offers better; Child's Play focuses on helping to ease kids' suffering by supplying games, movies, and other bits of entertainment to various children's hospitals across the world.

Which one is this supporting again, Seattle's?

AdminTal Destra [C and S Forgery Lmtd.] January 4 2010 2:09 PM EST

Viperboy you haven't been playing long have you? This is all for childsplay a charity that is run by gamers. find the user Charity and search his topics and you will see whats up. And the going rate for CBD never applies to charity.

Miandrital January 4 2010 2:18 PM EST

I'll bid starting price on bundle A

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] January 4 2010 2:41 PM EST

Bundle K for me. I wish I had more cash I would get a bigger bundle :-/

Pwned January 4 2010 3:10 PM EST

Is there a link on the childsplaycharity site that allows one to see what carnageblender has donated? I cant seem to find it. Also in the ones previous, there isn't any receipts.

{EQ}Viperboy January 4 2010 3:12 PM EST

lol i guess i just missed this forum i've played for a while. but i figure its always important to introduce the cause to people that might not know or to get new players or donations...just seems like an obvious detail. But thanks for providing the i and other people who might have not known know.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- January 4 2010 4:46 PM EST

Well, I'm normally skeptic about things like this. I just can't see Oddbird doing something so insanely immoral such as ripping people off in the name of Charity. Though I've been wrong about people before (and I'm sure people have done and gotten away with just such a thing before) :S.

(OB is the one doing this right??)

I would love to see some sort of receipt for years past events. If nothing more than to feel good about the community.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 4 2010 6:00 PM EST

I'll bid min on bundle M.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 4 2010 6:17 PM EST

min bid on bundles b,c,d, and e

AdminShade January 5 2010 2:11 AM EST


Charity January 5 2010 10:22 AM EST


I apologize for not linking back to the initial Charity thread I made exaplaining the cause in the initial post: I'll be editing that in shortly.

As for providing receipts, I'll be happy to do so, and have done so in the past; I am no longer using the PC that I previously did the Child's Play Charity fundraiser from in the past, so I do not have past receipts. I might have posted them up before, though, so I'll check back through my post history and link you if I did.

Thank you all for your generous bids! :)

Charity January 5 2010 3:30 PM EST

bump back to the front

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 5 2010 4:13 PM EST

min bid for bundle t please! ;O

Charity January 6 2010 10:49 AM EST

this got dropped from the front page. I'm putting it back.

QBOddBird January 6 2010 10:23 PM EST

bump? really?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 7 2010 5:34 PM EST

give it plenty of time ob, remember that many people are on crazy pay day schedules up to once a month, christmas is just over and tax season is coming up! since there is no deadline for donating, i suggest giving it quite a bit of time for people to participate!

oh, and bump! ; O

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 7 2010 5:37 PM EST

Dudemus is right and I just got money. Bundle S for me.

Soul Crusher January 8 2010 2:25 AM EST

$25 on Bundle S. Thank you.

Soul Crusher January 8 2010 2:32 AM EST

I'm sorry. Make that Bundle R. I didn't read all the post like I should have. Sorry.

Soul Crusher January 8 2010 2:40 AM EST

P.S. Why not do something similar using items? It would even be cool if players could donate items, and they could be auctioned in this fashion. Just a thought.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 8 2010 4:21 PM EST

SoulCrusher: Is this what you mean?

Charity January 8 2010 4:46 PM EST

Good point, dudemus.

If it's OK with the current bidders, I'll extend the sale a little bit longer to accomodate that factor - it is just after Christmas, after all.

Thank you to all who have bid so far, your generosity is truly appreciated.

Wraithlin January 8 2010 5:46 PM EST

I'll buy bundles F,G, H and I for 200 USD if you let me pay with card.

Charity January 9 2010 9:39 AM EST

Bumped, thank you to bidders thus far :D

Messbrutal January 9 2010 11:03 AM EST

Ill bid the minimum 25$ on package L.

Might have to wait for cash to transit from bank account to paypal tho.

Soul Crusher January 9 2010 4:26 PM EST

Yes, MarlFox, exactly. lol

Soul Crusher

P.S. I'm a little slow sometimes, but don't tell anyone.

Charity January 9 2010 6:31 PM EST


Only 5 bundles remain without a bid, and after that if you want a bundle, you'll have to outbid another player!

On an aside, I'm proud to see the community looks like it'll buy all of the CBD :D we're going to beat last year's donation amount!

Miandrital January 10 2010 12:54 AM EST

regrettably, I no longer have enough money to pay for this, so I have to withdraw my bid...

I will try to make up for it next year :)

Charity January 10 2010 1:36 PM EST

Pulled Mian's bid, as per his request.

I think later today I'll split up a few bundles into smaller, cheaper bundles to see if those spark any interest. :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 10 2010 10:32 PM EST

bump for bids blenderers!

Soul Crusher January 11 2010 4:16 PM EST

Do we send the money, now?

Lochnivar January 11 2010 4:22 PM EST

you could always just maintain a Charity CBD store... selling nothing but fair trade CBD! (as such, no deadline, fixed? prices, etc)

It works for coffee right?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 11 2010 4:30 PM EST

^i like loch's idea and it could be supported by donated drops sold in auctions. i know i would donate most of my drops to it and that is what i did whilst the item auctions were going on...just sent everything to charity except for the last one due to it being full!

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 11 2010 4:49 PM EST

I don't understand why people are selling CBD at the same time as Charity...

I'd buy some, but I have no money in the bank nor do I have any in PP, =( Nor do forgers really need CBD, lol.

QBRanger January 11 2010 4:56 PM EST

I don't understand why people are selling CBD at the same time as Charity...

Most if not all are NUB sellouts who want to leave the game not caring about its people or things like the charity auction.

Another reason I hate these type of players who contribute nothing positive to the game.

AdminNightStrike January 11 2010 9:46 PM EST

Doing it all throughout the year would make it easier to have a yearly donation.

It would probably be a good idea to also start showing some sort of receipt or something for the donation to the actual Child's Play at the conclusion of the sale. Something that says "Yes, we actually donated."

This is all done by Penny Arcade, right? Do they give any PR for supporting the charity? If not, they should.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] January 11 2010 9:47 PM EST

In the past I believe donators who met a certain threshold had their website link and a small banner added to the bottom of the donation page. I recall CB being listed at least once before.

Wraithlin January 11 2010 10:04 PM EST

Did I miss where to send the money, or has that not been addressed yet, is this auction still going?

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 11 2010 10:20 PM EST

one of the posts above states that the auction is extended.

kevlar January 11 2010 11:25 PM EST

ya I felt bad when I put my Tatoo up for sale, I let it die in peace real quick after remembering the Charity sale was going down. I'm full of mistakes lately...

QBRanger January 11 2010 11:46 PM EST


Charity January 12 2010 1:25 PM EST

Sorry guys! I got caught up in IRL matters, and was unavailable to respond/update in the thread.

I'm willing to do this throughout the year, sure. I guess we'd just keep Charity open for donations throughout the year, and periodically sell off through auctions and re-open the CBD store? It sounds good to me, so let me know what you think!

If anyone currently holding a bid on a CBD bundle would like to send their payment to the paypal address, please feel free to do so! It would be unfair to extend the deadline for bids which you've already won and are prepared to send money for.

All of the remaining bundles, however, are still up for sale. I'll update the table accordingly. :)

NightStrike, I'm absolutely going to provide receipt after this is done to ensure that everyone knows where the money went and everything. :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 12 2010 1:30 PM EST

money sent, thanks ob! if you are going to accept donated items year round, i would suggest starting a thread for people to post what they donate, just to keep it in people's minds.

Soul Crusher January 12 2010 7:32 PM EST

Thomas, you have sent $25.00 USD to Nathan.

Messbrutal January 13 2010 7:54 AM EST

charles, you have sent $25.00 USD to Nathan

You might want to double check that list in first post, my bid on package L was also available in the package without a bid on.

I am also glad you intend to keep this going all year long, cheers.

This seems like a classic case of over-reimbursement :P

Charity January 15 2010 2:29 AM EST

I appreciate that, Wraithlin! However, you're not required to reimburse me...the admins are doing so for my x-fers because of the cause. >.>

Not that I'm complaining, I'd rather be over reiumbursed than under

But I'll send that money back tomorrow :) tonight I'm tired and heading to bed.

ob, are you going to keep this going year round and should i send drops to charity?

sorry if i missed whether or not you would do so above and thanks for the work either way! ; )

Charity January 21 2010 1:12 PM EST

Wow, big finale.

I'll keep it open for donations year-round, dudemus.

When I get payments from Soul Crusher and Zenai, I'll go ahead and send that in for 2009's donation. That's going to be the biggest donation CB has ever sent in, btw. :D

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 21 2010 1:51 PM EST

woot! i will be sending all of my drops to charity then! ; )

Pardon our virtual dust. We're hammering out some
improvements to our site, so parts of

It wouldn't let me send more than 100.00 from my account at a time, thanks to determination though it is still sent!

Viva La Child's Play! :-D

I'm sorry. I didn't realize you were waiting for me. I'll go by the bank, tomorrow, and send that $25. Again, I apologize for slacking. I completely forgot about this thread, but I do have the money, it's just in my wallet, and not the bank. Payment will be sent tomorrow. Thanks.

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] January 24 2010 1:48 PM EST

So Charity. whats the largest amount donated by CB before this one?

Demigod January 24 2010 3:03 PM EST

It looks like the record was $538.92 USD in '07, but I didn't see an '08 thread.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] January 24 2010 3:04 PM EST

I'm really psyched about this, can't wait to see how much we got!

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] January 24 2010 3:18 PM EST

Looks like $705 right off the top :-)

Miandrital January 24 2010 4:40 PM EST

$893 in '05

QBOddBird January 24 2010 5:31 PM EST

Yeah, I was wrong! Didn't check that amount.

When Soul Crusher's USD reaches my PayPal, it'll be $741 and some change. :) Which is pretty good!

Sorry I haven't been on a whole lot, I've had a lot to deal with. I'll update the table/send out CBD now. Thanks for your patience guys!

I know this would break our tradition, but is there any chance we could donate to one of the charities for the Haiti disaster this year?

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] January 25 2010 10:00 AM EST

Whatever we decide, I'm game. As long as the money helps a good cause... In this case, I simply cannot choose which one is the "better" cause to get behind.

Soul Crusher January 25 2010 10:46 PM EST

Thomas, you have sent $25.00 USD to Nathan.

There we go. Sorry about it taking so long.

Soul Crusher January 29 2010 5:12 AM EST

If anyone knows Nathan, please let him know that I sent the money. I posted in this thread, and ChatMailed him, but I think he's been abducted by ninjas. Thank you.

Soul Crusher January 31 2010 10:42 AM EST

I'm still waiting, Nathan...

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 31 2010 10:48 AM EST

he does have an email listed on either the charity character or oddbird, did you try that yet?

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 31 2010 10:49 AM EST

Soulcrusher: You should have sent the money to Charity (OddBird). Please inform him that you sent the money to Nathan. Nathan is the creator of the game and rarely on as far as I can tell.

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 31 2010 10:51 AM EST

Ha, I just noticed that OddBird is named Nathan too. ;) Sorry!

AdminShade January 31 2010 10:51 AM EST

sebidach, Charity/Oddbird = Nathan.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] January 31 2010 10:54 AM EST

our creator is named jonathan actually, which is close! ; )

sebidach [The Forgehood] January 31 2010 10:58 AM EST

Oh boy. 2 mistakes in one post, at least it raises my post-score. ;)

Charity January 31 2010 11:07 PM EST

Heh, sorry guys! I was, as mentioned, abducted by ninjas. I'll get to handing your CBD out now, sorry!

Much thanks to everyone who sent in donations, the current total is $741.13 USD!

Charity (ChildsPlay2009) Soul Crusher (Soul Crusher) $5000000 -- Thanks! 11:08 PM EST

Charity January 31 2010 11:13 PM EST

Just read upwards - Miandrital, if everyone wants to, we can send it all to a Haiti charity / split it 50-50 / send it all to Child's Play. It's whatever you guys want.

I admit, however, to being wary of sending it to a Haiti charity, simply because so many scams have been created; we'd have to be assured that it's legit. I already know CPcharity is legit, so I'm comfortable with that. But it's totally up to you guys.

I will NOT forget

to log in tomorrow and check your responses so I know where to send.

Let me know what you want done with it, it's your money! :)

AdminNightStrike January 31 2010 11:25 PM EST

There's never a shortage of charities in need. This can quickly become a bikeshed topic.

QBOddBird January 31 2010 11:27 PM EST

a wut.

I see your point though, we'll stick to Child's Play. :)

I've got another 10 coming in, and then it'll be sendout time!

Charity January 31 2010 11:43 PM EST

That's it! The final total was sent in.

I'll make another thread tomorrow (I am so done with doing anything, at all, period tonight) with a list of everyone who donated, helped, sold items, etc. and with image links to the receipt and such.

Also, I shot off an e-mail to ensure that they were aware that this was not a donation from me as an individual, but as a compilation of donations coming as a total from -- I'll post up her response, as well.

Thanks to everyone involved, your donations will help change the lives of sick kids for the better! <3

Soul Crusher February 1 2010 12:04 AM EST

Thanks, Nathan. You had me worried a little bit, there. I thought you were done in by the Poison Fist of the Pacific Rim, or something. Glad to hear you're okay. As far as charity goes, I think we should send it all to Child's Play, because that's what we originally planned on doing. However, we could always do something for Haiti as well. I'd be more than happy to throw in a few bucks, as long as someone's being helped. So, if we do something like this, again, and soon, which we should, just put it into the site news, and I'll take the time to read the post. We all spend a lot of dough for pixels, so why not a little more for someone that truly needs it. Anyways, personally, I think we should do something like this year-round.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] February 1 2010 1:08 AM EST

SC this is something we try to do every year. I am with you though it would be nice to do this more often
