Several Contest winner announcements to get to today. First up is our December GITD Goofy winner. It’s commenter Caspian! He has 30 days to contact us at the email above and claim his prize. Thanks for playing all.
And now for our big contest. All last month I was hassling everyone to get out there and donate to Toys for Tots in our Infinite Toys for Tots contest. The good news is that we did get a few donations and I’m glad to have helped in any small way. Unfortunately although we didn’t have a “target amount”, I’m almost certain we wouldn’t have made it. That just means we’re going to have to work twice as hard next year to make sure people get out there and participate.
Before I announce winners, I’d like to give a special thanks to BigBadToyStore for providing one of our great prizes and showing that they’re not only the biggest and baddest online toy store, but also the kindest.
Also props goes out to Robots Pajamas, Poe Ghostal, Sci-Guys and Jester Goblin among others who helped to get the word out about this contest. Anyone who posted about this contest or allowed me to post on their forums about it, I truly appreciate it. Without people spreading the word, I doubt we would have been as successful as we were. I hope next year even more sites will carry our banner and help us help kids during the holidays.
A super special thanks to Paul/Vincent who ran last year’s Joes For Tots, for giving me a lot of advice and throwing his full support behind our little mission. I believe Paul and I are going to team up next year and raise like a million dollars worth of toys for needy kids.
NOW ONTO THE WINNERS!
First up a big congrats to Albert Hughes who won our $75 gift card thanks to his kind donation to Toys For Tots online! Many people chose to donate in this fashion and although it wasn’t as fun for me, it certainly helped out. Thanks to all who donated anonymously or otherwise via online donations and sent us the receipts. We will definitely focus on this next year.
Only one man had the courage to send in his photo of actually donating to Toys for Tots in person. It’s Mr. Scary Crayon himself and longtime friend of the site, Wes! Because Wes has the gonads and the big heart to share the love of Ninja Turtles and Transformers to those children in need, he’s receiving our big second place prize of a $40 BigBadToyStore Store Credit.
See how easy that was? This could have been you collecting a big prize for being generous. Next year be sure to participate and you could win yourself a big time prize while helping out those in need! I’m certain that we can get a whole collage of people’s photos donating to Toys For Tots.
Thanks again to all who donated and if you’ve been contacted already, your prize is on it’s way.
