Are people eligible to win more than one prize if they donate more or is it one prize per account?

Money is tighter this year, but screw it -- I'll just buy one or two fewer games. This cause is worth it -- in for $30 and a game donation.

The picture CheapyD posted was old. I've taken a new one that includes everything since it was taken.

I am so confused, why doesnt a prize like this go to the charity itself or is sold for the charity's benefit? It could be set up at some childrens shelter where lots of kids could have fun with it I would presume or even a local library or something.

Can't you pay via checking account with PayPal? I'm pretty sure you can.

Some people may not like the power paypal can have over your bank account but I suppose if the person isnt buying/selling via ebay or anything else, it could be ok.

I think the ideas is that people will ultimately donate more than the value of the prize in order to attempt to win the prize.

I think the ideas is that people will ultimately donate more than the value of the prize in order to attempt to win the prize.


But if a person who donates $5 has an opportunity to win this bundle, and the majority of people will donate less than the $400-500+ value of this bundle the idea that a person can win a massive bundle for such little effort is kinda lame. If it was split up into smaller bits or something, that would make more sense (not as a single prize).
The person who had this sitting around could have seen the his "prize" be put to immediate use if it went to a charity/house/library directly.

I am specifically addressing this massive prize bundle and not all the smaller little prizes or the $500 gift card because it seems to be an excessively large prize and I thought there was something on CAG where donations of games directly to a kids charity occurred (unless I am confusing it with the military one).

anyways thats the last I'll say about that. I'm just as happy to win the prize now that it is in the pot but still...
