It's closing in on the Holidays and I've got a bunch of stuff that I'm going to be giving away in order to help out one of my favorite charities. I have prizes readily available for a bunch more people who donate at this point, so hopefully some of you are feeling generous. If any of the prizes don't gather much interest from the donors, I'll be donating them to GoodWill.
If you are interested in donating for any of the prizes, please leave me a way to contact you when you donate or a PM if you're shy. As quite a few of the digital prizes are Steam-based, I would prefer having Steam Community links in addition to email/username. Quite a few of the giveaways will be run through SteamGifts using a private group that donors will be invited to join. Not all of the digital prizes will be distributed through SteamGifts, however, as I don't want to discourage entries from people who already own the game and would like to enjoy the experience with their friends.
Digital items extended information:
I'm going to be having a digital raffle after the New Year for some of the previous items on the list and a couple new ones purchased in the intervening time. As such, the list of digital items needs to be updated some, so if it's altered please understand. I will be updating the list soon.
Physical items extended information:
At the rate I'm going you're all going to win some games and stuff. I'm currently debating between having all donors give me lists of physical prizes they are interested in or going through 1 by 1 and having them select from the available pools. I prefer lists, but I'll listen to the donors and follow what you guys want.
LAST day for donations to be accepted into raffle: December 31st, 2012.
EDIT: An Extra Life planner has contacted me back and told me that they cannot give me a firm date beyond the end of this month, so the previous date of January 3rd, 2013 will have to be replaced with December 31st, 2012.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Currently the plan is to distribute digital prizes (2nd set of giveaways, so not all of them in the full list are still up for grabs; I will edit them out shortly) and start shipping the physical prizes first week of January 2013.
