I'm kinda curious what type of prizes marten will doll out...his donations are usually damn impressive.

also looking forward to donating, cash as well as minor prizes.


Ask, and ye shall receive.

Hope you're all ready for this....all the stops are being pulled for this one.

And I do mean all. 8-)

To be considered a country, you need to have a beer. Sure, it helps to have an airport or nuclear weapons, but at the very least...you need to have a beer.

You'll never outdo my awesome donation!

Seriously, I do hope someone enjoys the prize and I hope to see lots of money raised for Child's Play. It's a great cause. Let's hit $50,000! :)

I was just thinking about this too, what a lucky coincidence! Time to clear out my paypal account! (It's not a lot, but certainly more than last year). Good luck everyone! Be sure to crush the goal again this year!

I may try and donate a prize, I dunno, but pretty sure I'll do cash donation again this year.

Don't worry if you can't match my donation. I couldn't donate what I wanted to last year since I was in school full time so I wanted to make up for it this year.


Haha, yeah it's my last year in college, although that doesn't mean I'll be able to spend any more frivolously afterwards (yay school loans!).

I work at a GameStop, so maybe I can try 'n convince my manager if we could donate some swag. I know there were a lot of those nerf gun things leftover from the Black Friday weekend, and I bet kids would love that! (...I love it :oops:)

I also plan on goin' to the Funde Razor event as well, so I know that money's gonna go to Child's Play as well!

If you're looking to donate used games to a great cause, consider donating to the Armed Forces in that respective thread. There are plenty of soldiers overseas who are also gamers who'd love to spend some time with your unwanted stuff.

Is it possible to donate used games to the Child's Play charity itself? I know the charity does a lot in providing funding for children, but is there any need for games within the system itself for kids stuck in hospitals?

Also, consider auctioning off your unwanted used stuff on eBay or Amazon and donating the proceeds themselves to Child's Play. Every little bit helps - this is for an awesome cause, and everything needs funding.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Matched last year's $20.00. Might have to make another donation in a few weeks.

Who the hell did you rob to be able to donate such fantastic prizes? :lol:

Money is tight, so I'll be pitching in at least $20.00.
I could donate an unused (pin not scratched) $10.00 iTunes card... but it pales in comparison to these other awesome prizes. Although it would be easy to send (throw it in an envelope or just email the code).

Out of curiosity, does anyone know how the raffle entries are cross-referenced to a CAG user ID through the chip-in GUI?

Regarding used games... you could always put them up on eBay and then have the proceeds go to Child's Play.

Noone that didn't deserve it. ;)

In all seriousness, it is for a good cause. I have a few charities I make donations to every year, but this one hits home a bit more. Something about being able to relate to kids in hospitals, and well....we're all gamers, right?

I may have a few more tricks up my sleeve before the month is out. :D

Awesome! I'll be chipping in as soon as possible. Oh and I was just wondering why CAG isn't listed under any of the corporate sponsors? Not to sound like an ass, but $27,000+ didn't warrant any notoriety?

I'm out of work right now(layoff), but it's a good cause and I feel obligated. I'll have my WORKING girlfriend match me at least in the next week or so.

We were a Platinum Sponsor last year! The sponsors listed are for this year.

I threw in $20 dollars. I'll make a resolution to give more next year, but I totally forgot about this and wasn't prepared. I may make a second donation after my next pay check.

I'm somewhat new to these forums, but I'd like to say that the spirit of giving here is definitely beyond what I've seen elsewhere. You guys have created an awesome community!

Hmmm... I have a LARGE pile of loose change in my closet. The piles usually come out to $40-$50 when I cash it in. I'll see if I can order a game or two for a prize. I wish I would have known this during Black Friday, and I would have bought some stuff then.

Bumping my donation up 10% this year, if everyone does the same that'll make $30k easy.
