#14136710 Once More With Feeling- Do Something Good, Win Something Cool

Posted by Danimal on 28 February 2019 - 04:27 PM

Hey All.

 

  I haven't been around CAG in a while, but I wanted to come back and run one more contest, and hopefully help out a very dear friend in the process.  My friend's name is Olivia Frances, and she is a singer/songwriter, planning to release her 3rd album in May.  She's an indie artist, and a college student, so she started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com.  I want to help her raise some money.

 

  To that end, I want to give away some prizes in the hopes of getting some CAGs to donate to her campaign.  I'll put the link to her Indiegogo page below.  For every $5 you donate, you'll get one entry into this contest, so $5 gets you one entry, $50 gets you 10 entries, and if anyone donates $100 or more, I'll double your entries, so $100 would get you 40 entries.  The higher the total of all donations get, the more prizes I'll give away.

 

If the total of all donations reaches:

 

$100- I'll give away a $25 Playstation gift card

 

$200- 2 winners- a $25 PS gift card, and a $50 Amazon gift card

 

$400- 3 winners- the prizes above, and a Dropmix set

 

$500- 4 winners- All of the prizes above, and a game of one winner's choice, up to $60 value

 

If we get higher than that, I'll figure out some more prizes to give away.

 

  I've been a part of the CAG community since 2003, and I've made a lot of good friends here over the years.  I've tried to give back by running a number of giveaways, and I'm hoping some of you will help me to help someone very special to me.  Olivia is one of the sweetest and kindest people I've ever met, and I urge you to check out her music as well (https://www.oliviafr...m/#home-section)

 

 

How To Enter:  Click here to donate  When you donate, it will give you the choice to be listed as a backer by your full name, as "Anonymous", or "Other".  Select "Other", and put down your name on CAG, as well as "(CAG)" after it so I can verify your donation and know the number of entries to give you.  That's it.  When her Indiegogo campaign concludes (22 days from now), I will draw winners based on the total of all CAG donations.  Please feel free to share her link on any social media to help get the word out as well.  Thanks very much in advance to anyone who helps out in any way!

As always, I'm using random.org to draw our winner.  And the winner is.... DomPaolo!  Congrats DomPaolo; I'll be contacting you via pm later today with your code.  Thanks very much again to everyone who voted for Olivia!  It is truly appreciated.

 

 

This contest has been my farewell to CheapAssGamer.  I joined CAG a few months after it was formed, way back in 2003.  For a lot of years, I pretty much lived on this site.  I've found a lot of good deals, and made some good friends here over the years, but all good things come to an end.  Thanks once more to everyone who entered any of the contests I ran here over the years.  I hope they were fun.

I know I said I was going to leave this contest open until my friend's competition concluded at the end of this month, but I'm going to put it out of it's misery and draw a winner this afternoon/evening after I get home from work.  

Sorry, crazy busy day today, and no time to do it now.  I'll pull a winner this weekend.

That sucks. When does that contest end? I'll try to get more people to vote for her.

I'm not sure of the exact end date, but it says that it ends in a month, so it must run through September.  That would be great if you can get more people to throw her a vote.  Anyone with their own Facebook account; siblings, friends, cousins, co-workers, whatever.  I talked to an old friend today who has a MUCH bigger social media footprint than me, and she said she was going to reach out to everyone she knows, so I'm hoping to see her vote total shoot up a bit.  I really appreciate the help!

Hey Everyone.

 

  Some of you may remember other giveaways I've done here over the years; I've given away games, gift cards, even a DVD set or two back in the days before streaming.  I hope I've built up some good will and good karma, and that CAGs will come out in force now to help me help out a very dear friend of mine (and get a chance at winning a Playstation Store $20 card for their trouble)

 

  My friend's name is Olivia Frances.  She is a very talented singer/songwriter, and she's entered her song "Moon to My Sun" into a songwriting competition being put on by the "And The Writer Is..." podcast.  The winner will be determined by whoever receives the most votes online.  The winner will get to appear on the podcast, which has over a million listeners.

 

  To enter this contest, click the link below and vote for Olivia Frances.  You'll need to have a Facebook account.  Post in here and let me know you voted for her, and you'll be entered.  If you can provide proof of your vote, that would be great, but I trust CAGs and I'm willing to go with the honor system (please be honorable  O:))

 

  We've hit the 10 vote mark, so I'll be drawing at least one winner, and giving away a $20 PS Store card.  If we get at least 50 votes, I'll draw two winners, and give away a $25 PS Store card and a $20 PS Store card.  If we hit 50 or more votes and she wins, I'll draw 3 winners and add in a grand prize, and buy someone a game of their choice, up to $60.

 

Here's the link:

  If anyone can get their friends, siblings, parents, cousins, whoever, to vote for Olivia as well, that would be much appreciated.  Thanks guys.

Hey, I've been busy doing Christmas prep stuff all day and not watching very much football (my Steelers play in an hour), so I just got home and checked the scores and realized we have a winner!

 

Congratulations, brandonheat!  You have outlasted the entire field to win the contest!  I'll be contacting you via pm shortly to get your shipping info so I can get your prize out to you ASAP.

 

Thanks everyone who played and/or followed along.  It's been a lot of fun!

Week 14 is locked.

 

 

Just realized I didn't have anything listed in the first 2 posts of this thread in the rules about what happens if all remaining players get knocked out in the same week, or what happens if multiple people survive through the entire regular season.  Since we're down to 3 people left, and it's Week 14, those are distinct possibilities.  If everyone remaining in the pool gets knocked out in the same week, those players will all be resurrected and come back the following week as if their last pick won.  If there are multiple people remaining after the final weekend of the regular season, here's how it will work in the playoffs: everyone gets a clean slate, all playoff teams are available to pick.  Moving forward through the playoff rounds, you will not be able to choose a team you've already picked in a previous round.  Picks will be submitted via PM to me instead of being posted in the thread, secret ballot style.  If we reach the Super Bowl with multiple people remaining, I will come up with a tiebreaker system to ensure we have just one winner.  I will post these rules updates in the 2nd post of the thread as well.

 

Anyway...

Seeing as we're down to the Fab Four, I figured I'd use Beatles song titles for our results categories, however it played out.  Well, "Yesterday" was really "Something".  With four different picks, I thought we'd lose someone, but "I Should Have Known Better".  You all said "All I've Got To Do" is "Come Together", and "We Can Work It Out", and sure enough, you "Don't Let Me Down", and now you've all got your "Ticket To Ride" for Week 13.  Time to "Get Back" to picking.
