Hows everyone doing? Just finished my 2nd raffle. Don't know what to put up for the next one. This one will the last for a while. Also I remember last year someone was able to get game developers to donate for the cause anyone remember who had the skills to do that? Maybe get something going on again this year to garner more participation?

Yeah he contacted me. We might have the same thing happen this year. First things first though - My roommate and I slacked off finding an apartment for the upcoming year until now, so I should probably solve that situation first so I'm not gaming behind a Starbucks. :)

Anyone else grabbing MW3? I wasn't at first because the server issues, but after seeing the "horde/wave" mode, my mind kind of changed. Might have to go with the Best Buy Rewards Program promo going on.

Yeah I'll be grabbing MW3. I tend to pick up whatever multiplayer my friends/acquaintances do. I can never EVER go back to random games with completely random people. Oh the horror....

That being said, I am still somewhat looking forward to MW3. Haters gonna hate - I enjoy the reflex - not - strategy focus gameplay that has been the staple of the COD games.

My fundraising will have to start at the beginning of September. I tend to take my vacations at the end of summer, when all the grade schools are back in. Less crowd, less people blocking my view on the beach and screaming while I read, and less kids running around the pool while I work my magic on the cute girl in the other condo.

Ahhhh. Being young and dumb is fun.

Thats so true. As for fundraising its going to be on and off. Contemplating on raffling another or just wait for the last one (game of choice). Wish BF3 was out by then, be nice to just go crazy on that, but at least I'll have Gears3 and BFBC2 still.

I'm still not doing great for fund raising. Hoping will pick up in September. Going to try to organize something at work. (Maybe a change jar and Ill deposit all the proceeds at the end)

Thats not a bad idea, you try asking your local game shops for maybe a sponsor? Then you can sport their brand during the event or out and about for a week or so?

Shot an email out to Play N Trade to see if we could get some donations or a sponsor. Heck hopefully some donated items be pretty nice.

I'm in and happy to team up for some group activity.
Frosty I can't thank you enough for posting this. I had no idea. I've been involved with a children's charity that went under this year. (Political infighting...I'm proud to say I was not involved) Now I can feel good for the next few months before I turn my attentions to some sort of ThanksGiving Drive.

Dopes anybody know a promo code for ordering the street team t shirt?

Thanks for signing up. Its for the kids, I'm just thankful my children don't need the charity's services or the hospitals (knocks on wood).

I signed up as a lone wolf. Hopefully this year goes better than last; all I got was $10! I have a new staff so hopefully they'll be much more willing to donate to the cause, huzzah!

No but I will get on Fable 3 for a bit if you promise to marry me and have a cross platform baby with me. You also have to keep the kid. :bouncy:

Looks like Extra Life got mentioned on the CAGcast. I don't think they knew this thread existed haha.

What are your usernames? There is one on the wiki without a link and I'm sure it is one of you. And the other, who are you? I will gladly throw your link in the original post. I just need to know who you are. :)

Not that great. The bad part is is that school, as well as having my first apartment, has been kicking my ass and taking up my time, whereas last year I was incredibly ill and had to stay at home all the time.

I'm working on getting some raffles going though. It's a possibility, but no guarantees we will have one like last year.
