AND WE'RE DONE!

Super Charity go has officially ended its fourth run!

The total amount for this round is...
$100.55!

But wait! There's more! Let's add this up to our grand total with the previous rounds and we have raised...
$1991.41!

Well! Would you look at that? We're near the $2000 dollar mark after four runs. :D And that's AMAZING, everyone: donors, volunteers, even those who spread the word about us. Thank you, and FEEL GREAT ABOUT YOURSELVES. Any amount, no matter how small, helps so many people around the world who need it most. We hope you'll still be around for next year's run, and make the drive more and more awesome each time. UP WE GO.

OF COURSE, WE MUST DO AS TRADITION COMMANDS AND appreciate those who volunteered their skills, as well as all finished work from this run.

Hall of AwesomeCollapse )

As usual, if you guys have any comments, concerns, questions, SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT and whatnot, feel free to leave a comment! And don't hesitate to CELEBRATE!

GOOD TO KNOW: If you still have leftover commissions, or if you commissioned someone who hasn't responded, go ahead and have a talk with each other or tell them you're moving on. If the volunteer has decided to drop/they don't respond after a couple days, just make a comment in the proof post linking to the thread, and we can carry over your donation token to this round.

I have personally gone and followed-up all artists with leftover commissions from the first round and will move on to the next ones within the month. I will contact all donors with a due commission after I get responses. Thank you for your patience!

REALLY REALLY CLOSE YOU GUYS

If you were planning on donating to a charity, at all, NOW IS THE TIME! Get those donations out and check 'em in with us!

As a reminder, volunteers, it is all right if you get a request and finish it after the charity drive ends! So, nobody should feel like there's no point in donating if we're ending soon. It's absolutely fine to!

Current Amount Raised: $62.55

I'm so sorry for missing a reminder! I just have been busy with things and it kinda slipped my mind.

Anyway, please please please! Donating even a little will make you feel good. You owe that to yourself!

LAST MONTH

Happy June, everyone! We are now on our last month of this year's drive (we end on July 1st). Reminders are going to get more frequent from here on!

So far, we have raised $62.55. Let's end this with a bang and really whip out those donations, shall we? Also, don't forget: it's still totally cool to jump in as a volunteer!

Whoa! I'm so sorry for being a bit late with my reminder, guys! Finals week was basically eating up my entire life. Now that it's over, though, I can keep a much closer eye on this thing.

We are now slightly over a month into this year's round, and we have currently raised $53.55.

We only have May and June left to go before we wrap things up, meaning that you guys still have plenty of time to volunteer and donate! Volunteers are letting things go for cheap, cheap, cheap, and we even got a few one dollar offers going on. I KNOW that everybody reading this has that much to spare. Please check 'em out!

Whaaaaaaat's up! Just letting you gorgeous people know that we are a little over a week into this year's round!

So far, we've raised five dollars and we have three volunteers, two of which are mods. Guys! Get up! We can do this! You should imagine me clapping at you right now to make you move faster, because that is what I AM DOING

Not to say that those $5 and three volunteers aren't awesome, but I know you guys got it in you to make this thing even MORE awesome. There's so many folks out there who will absolutely love (to say the least) your help for the rest of their lives, and you totes have the opportunity right now to give them that AND get something totally sweet for yourself as well. Or give something totally sweet to someone who just helped, and we will feature it and everyone will be like "whoa that's totally sweet" and they'll compliment you and watch your blog and be your best friend. It's win-win!

SO COME ON GUYS

HERE WE GO!!! 2011

AND NOW

THE MOMENT YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR

Super Charity Go, 2011 Edition!

For newcomers, here is what you're gonna do.

Donors:
-Donate to the charity of your choice. Here is a list of charities to get the gears turning--you don't have to stick to this list. (Note: This round is going to have a special focus on Egypt, Libya, and Japan. However, you can still donate wherever.)
-Get proof of it somehow. Take a photo of your "I donated blood" sticker, or screenshot of the confirmation e-mail you got, or a photo of you handing a bag of food cans to a charity worker while you both give us a big thumbs up. Whatever you gotta do! (It's fine to blot out personal info, just as long as we can see what's being donated. However, it has to be an image.)
-Post the image to the proof post and wait for a mod to approve it. (We're pretty quick, but feel free to prod us if it takes more than a day.)
-GO GET STUFF

Volunteers:
-Fill out the volunteer form.
-Post it to this post.

It's like this!

Username:
Offering:
Charging:
Examples: (For people doing artsier stuff, post links to images/pages/galleries/journals/etc. For you zany imagey types: thumbnails are just fine, but please don't post more than three!)
I WON'T Do:
Reservations?: (Y/N? See profile for info.)
Request Slots: (If you decide later that you want to take more/less, you are free to make a note on your thread!)
Anything Else?:

And here is the template!


Catalog of VolunteersCollapse )

As always, if you have any questions, you can direct them to the Q&A post.

Also, if you'd like, you can now follow us on tumblr for occasional updates and featured threads/commission fills!

That's it! Have at it!

Note: If you still have leftover commissions, or if you commissioned someone who hasn't responded, go ahead and have a talk with each other or tell them you're moving on. If the volunteer has decided to drop/they don't respond after a couple days, just make a comment in the proof post linking to the thread, and we can carry over your donation token to this round.
