Is there a way to pin the original news story for this on the front page? I know everybody is going to have this in their sigs etc but eventually the original story is going to get bumped off the front page.

Would probably help the final amount go up if it stays as front page news.

Well, I have my own reasons for contributing. Recently, my 8-year-old cousin, whom I'm helping my parents raise, had a stint in the hospital. My mom had been staying with him, and she momentarly left the room, only to come back to find a "big machine" (her words) in there. She goes rushing in, only to find it's a PS2 mobile station.

Anyway, the in-hospital game system helped ease his nerves. I haven't made my donation yet, but I plan to at least match what I did last year ($60). In addition, I have pledged 2 prize boxes for the raffle, and I plan to pick up some additional stuff on Black Friday to bolster those packs, and perhaps add a 3rd.

Chipped in a small bit, hopefully I'll have a job sometime in the near future so I can chip in more next time.

Kept forgetting to donate last year. I went ahead and did $5.01 now and will donate more later on when I have more money in my Paypal account.

Always a great cause! :)

I will help out in December after I deal with the bills I have to deal with this month & Black Friday.

Well, I donated 50 bucks cause I didn't spend as much as I thought I would on Black Friday. I probably will donate more in the coming weeks.

I just remembered I won a prize from this the first time we did this. Man how the years fly by.

Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

My extended family decided to do charitable donations this year instead of gift exchanges, so another $50 to Child's Play!

Cheapy, any thoughts about further publicizing this? I have a feeling once it dropped off the first screen on the front page, it was out of sight, out of mind.

Lots of people have been asking for this to be pinned to the front page Cheapy... Don't you think it's about time? I know a lot of people have short term memory out there.

Some idiot on eBay just purchased my PS3 Netflix Instant Streaming disk for $15! I don't even have a Playstation 3 right now lol. This money will be donated immediately :)

So far I will have donated Street Fighter IV PC and $15, I will possibly be throwing in another $5-10 if I get the chance to later :-P

Man, I wish I could donate...... but with how tight my budget is with this economy it's hard.... especially when you are unemployed

Gave $25 to show my support.

EDIT: I also have an extra copy of Coraline on DVD i could use as a prize, but most of the prizes look like they're worth a lot more than that :(

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)

If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Would anyone be interested in a random UNWORN shirt from PAX as a prize? If there is interest I can see if I can get some up on the prize list.

Glad that our community does nice things like this. Always get a little fuzzy feeling chipping in. Going to go home tonight and search my media shelves to see if there's anything I can pitch in towards the raffle.
