so, for the past 5 years, mr carrot (and his gaming group, but he's the director, and all this stuff hangs out in our house until the event) has held a raffle to raise money for child's play (they provide games to kids in hospitals to help them get their minds off of the fact that they're in hospitals) and last year was great! we raised $1600, and this year we're nowhere close. :-(
(which also means if you donate even a dollar, you have an extremely good chance of winning something.)

here's a gallery of this year's prizes. (that stuff is worth WELL over $600. i feel as if we're letting the sponsors down by being so incompetent in the fundraising this year. sure, we don't have any big-ticket items like a giant rock band bundle or guitar hero guitars, but there are some gems in there, like the signed comic jumper statue.)
http://www.facebook.com/#!/album.php?ai ... 834&page=2

selected items that the PPK may find enjoyable:
Image
signed MC frontalot albums and stuff.

Image
plants vs zombies apron!! and beverage cozies! (and a shopping bag!)

Image
splosion man everybody loves donuts t-shirt (i think there are 5 of these. same with the maw "eat things" shirt.)

here's the event page for the donation button. (it goes directly to child's play, so it's tax-deductible) the drawing is on the 19th, so please get your donations in by midnight on the 18th, so we can get the tickets ready by the air-time.
http://www.8bitbrigade.com/childsplay2010/
and if you win something that you don't like, you have the chance to trade with the other winners. (the website went through a redesign this year, so in that case, you might have to register instead of being able to comment anonymously like last year. hope that doesn't deter you.)

please help. :-( this might be the last year we'll do this. (for a while at least. it's too depressing.)

Done and done! I was going to anyway, but I didn't realize that the drawing is this Sunday. Time flies.

i've just been informed that there will be a 10 hour gameathon from 2-midnight (EST) on saturday to encourage more donations. so, uh... if you want to see my living room and my nutty husband doing all sorts of silly things and stuff, feel free to tune in. the prizes will also be prominently featured throughout.

http://www.ustream.tv/user/unclegramps

recording this via the macbook's built-in camera will be awkward to say the least (unless he made a purchase i don't know about. heh. *twiddles thumbs*)

if you have any requests/demands, feel free to lay 'em on.

Have they tried getting someone like Wil Wheaton to tweet about it? One retweet from him could put them over their goal.

there have been some tweets from the behemoth, child's play themselves, halo waypoint, oneofswords (activision's social media guy) mr. carrot isn't that much of a beggar. :-p he might have asked a celebrity to promote, but it's too late now.

we're close to last year's number, but there's a way to go.

brian and miyu are playing as well. (only miyu right now, brian doesn't have the game they're playing, but he'll be back.)

we were playing rock band (i was singing) which we might go back to later.

congrats on all your wins! david said he'd be happy to trade his frontalot pack with you.

and congrats to mrsbadmouth too!

and thanks everyone who donated! we raised $1,558 for childs play (so-far)

the chart of winners is here http://www.8bitbrigade.com/content.php? ... nd-Wrap-up
it's color coded, so if you want to trade, anything in green is up for grabs. <3

simproso is looking for the R&C games. this is what he won (he doesn't want any of them, if you're interested in any of it):

XBLA codes for Defense Grid plus all expansion map packs
XBLA code for the Trials HD Big Pack DLC, plus avatar accessory
Castle Crasher code (PS3)
Twisted Pixel bundle with 2 shirts and 1 Splosion Man plush

supercarrot: did you get my email? I don't use that mail account much so I wouldn't be surprised if the SMTP is screwy :)

short version: happy to trade everything away, and any leftovers can go to eBay (though, I might take a couple of Steam/XBLA codes after the dust settles and trades are all completed). and yes, I'd love to trade for the frontalot kit. the two pins I'd like are the two on the left in the photos

I'll be back in North America early January (currently in Australia) and we'll organise shipping then? how's that all work?

It looks like people enjoyed themselves :) I donated but there wasn't anything we need so I wrote to not include us in the raffle and doesn't look like we are on the list so that is good.

I'm leaving Brian in charge of trading, since the only stuff I would want is the Popcap stuff. He said he left a comment.
