Wow you guys, this is awesome! That is a seriously huge chunk of change that we raised to help out Child's Play.

 

To everyone that donated prizes: Thank you!

 

And thanks too for picking my name... that was a nice surprise to come back to after traveling this past week. :)

It didn't start until December 23rd last year, so I'd assume it's coming.

Unsure, it seems to occur a little bit later each year. I'll likely donate regardless, but potentially winning gaming goodies is always nice too. :-D

Cheapy did say that it is happening. Probably will be next week.

I would think this would be more successful if done sooner then this. I know for me being so close to Christmas most of my free money is already spent so I will be unable to donate much. Would be better if started in the begining of November.

Agreed, but there has been a lot going on around here behind the scenes, especially with cheapy moving back to the states. I can understand if things are running a bit late. Perhaps it should be delegated in the future to a trusted advisor/mod to get started earlier and alleviate some of the end of year pressure.

I actually bought prizes to donate during Black Friday week. If there's no raffle, I need to return them.

So Cheapy, can we do another fundraiser this year? Would suck if we missed out two years in a row.

If there isn't one that happens again, people might want to look at this as an alternate:

Cheapy doesn't seem to care about being involved in the site as much.  This charity drive is not put on any more nor the Cheapy Awards.  I'm half surprised he does the podcast still.

Also if you want to particpate go to Child's Play's site and click on a hospital near where you live on the map.

Can go to the Amazon wish list and you can buy toys and send directly to the hospital.

 

I spent about $100 on the wish list and everything shipped straight to the Hospital it's pretty cool.

 

Click here to get to the map: http://childsplaycharity.org/donate

Thanks for the tips, guys.  I bought a bunch of movies and games off one of my hospital's amazon wishlist.  I noticed sometimes they don't keep it up to date.  One hospital had stuff added back in 2013.  So I just went with the hospital that had stuff newly requested this holiday season.

Really wish we could promote Child's Play in the deals sub-forum since that gets all the traffic.  Even without an official cag fundraiser, it'd be nice just to give the website more hits.

While it's too late now, I recommend the Salvation Army angel trees. We do those every year (more now that CAG doesn't do Child's Play).
