Makes sense. Like the idea of rotating raffles.

Hey guys, I'd like to extend this raffle until the end of January.  Maybe I can dig up some more prizes.

 

Also, since John has setup this awesome raffle system, I'm thinking we should always have a charity raffle going on at all times.  Maybe start a new raffle each month and rotate charities.  As long as the charity takes PayPal, we can use our raffle system. 

 

What are your thoughts?

 

awesome idea on both fronts...

donate to a different charity every month? I think that’s awesome. Let’s do it, this community saves me so much money as it is, if it means I can throw some money at a different charity every month in the name of CAG then I’m all for it. The raffle is just an added bonus

Can a video game hoodie count or does it specifically have to be a game? Got 3 of the Battlefield 1 hoodies back at the last Pro Day b/c they were B1G2F and everything else $15 or less on the website was sold out. It's never been worn.

 

Edit: I also submitted the Witcher 3 metal Bottle Stopper from a recent gaming Lootcrate. I don't drink alcohol, so I have no need for it and wanted to submit it for the raffle.

So I goofed up and the Witcher thing is actually a bottle opener. You put the bottle in the mouth of the Wolf. I originally thought it was a stopper to replace the cork when you opened a wine bottle and would be useless since I don't drink alcohol.

I went ahead and offered it so I will keep up my end of the bargain. I have 3 other bottle openers with two of them being gaming related so it's fine.

The only thing with doing a charity raffle all the time is that you may end up with people that are burned out on it (stop paying attention).  Perhaps one a quarter?  Either way I appreciate the fact that this site looks to help others.  Thanks!

Just depends how often people donate. $5 here or there isn’t usually much to ask, and if corporations are donating (tax deductible probably), and CAG is putting up prizes, then it’s just on the community for more chances to win and enticing people to donate more for the chances.

I submitted some Steam game prizes a few weeks ago, but don't see them on the master list. Should I resend?

Hi Cheapy,

I submitted a Digital Codes for 1) Uncharted 4 and 2) Uncharted Lost Legacy for prizes some time back but don't see them on the board.  Just want to make sure my submission went through.  Can probably add another 1 or 2 more prizes too.  Thanks!

Was hoping for a 1 year supply of G-Fuel as a prize, sadly disappointed.

Would you buy a ticket if it we had G-fuel prizes? You don’t seem to have participated in the raffle beyond attempting to make fun of me.

Any thoughts about donating to other shithole countries besides Puerto Rico?

If there is G-Fuel I'm in cheapy. I need my fix. Could we also get a prize of pics of thorbahn3 in Thor cosplay with his hammer?

Isn't G-Fuel known to essentially be poison?

Just added a prize for a BF1 premium pass code.  Glad I visited this thread...I would rather it go to a CAG that chose to give to help others.

So I sent a message to CheapyD a week and a half-2 weeks ago and haven’t received a response yet. Basically, the South Park Stick of Truth Digital Copy I submitted expires on the 31st which is the same day that this raffle ends so my code may or may not work. Not sure what to do about this.

Well, we can have it as an alternate prize.

It would be great if things didn’t just expire for actual products like that and not otherwise discounts. Is that the one with the new South Park: Fractured But Whole game?

Guess i better make sure mine gets activated, and good thing they give the things away free otherwise I’m sure they ran an under $10 sale on it before with the Ones backward compatibility. Those times waiting pays off.

Glad I didn't miss the deadline. It's really cool you are doing this. There's still so many people without power that this money can help!

Does anyone know if this is something that can be used as a tax credit or a tax write-off?
