Default Post #888 = CONTEST TIME!! (with a twist)

I know some of you are saying, "Why post 888 and not 1,000?" Well, take a look at my PC player and avatar and hopefully that will answer your question!!

So, I will be sending these cards to some lucky person:


There is only one thing you have to do to be eligible to receive these cards. Donate AT LEAST $1.00 to the charitable organization RAINN, and post your completed transaction page here.

Here is the donation page link. You can use PayPal for your donations or a credit card.

RAINN stands for "Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network". They help those who have been victims of sexual assault. This is a subject dear to my heart as a very close family member and my ex wife were both sexually assaulted.

To show you an example of what you need to post, here is a pic of my donation page:


As you can see, I have blacked out my personal info (except my name and email address). You can black out your last name and email as well, but please leave your first name. Only entries that have the "Thank you for your donation" section will count. Please cross out all personal info. If you need any help taking a screen shot of your donation page, please PM me and I will be happy to help.

The way I will determine who gets the cards will be through random.org. All eligible entrants will be put in a list and randomized 3 times. Whoever comes out as #1 will receive the cards. The contest will end on Sunday, April 21st at 8:30 PM and the random will be done after that. Cards will be mailed off on Monday the 22nd in a bubble mailer with DC confirmation.

No matter if there is 1 donation or 100 donations, I will be sending the cards (of course, I do hope to get closer to 100).

Thank you ahead of time to everyone that donates and I wish you all luck in the random!!

Thank you for the contest, I did block out the majority of my ID so I hope that is OK. If not, I'd be happy to PM you the original.

Thank you for the donation Ooosh! Very generous.

It looks like our total donation to RAINN is up to $17. If we can get it up to over $50, I'll add in some more cards to go to the winner!!

Back up to the top. I know if I'd been just giving these away I would have had at least 80 people posting. Is it really that big of a deal to give $1 to a charity that helps victims of sexual assault?

Yeah, I'm surprised this hadn't gotten a bigger response. A dollar to a good cause for a chance at five pretty nice cards? Seems like a no-brainer.

I bet a lot of you will be glad when this is over so I'll stop bumping it. You know what the best way to get me to stop is though? Donate a buck to charity for a chance at some cards worth more than a buck!

If you don't want to do it for me, then maybe you'll do it for the HARDCORE LEGEND Mick Foley?

Deadline is tonight guys. Thank you to the people who already donated, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed. Hopefully we can get a few in towards the end!!
