Story of the Divine Promise:
Quote:
A higher power once promised his people, he will save those who are in need in times of desperation. Many believed they will achieve harmony and peace when he saves. The sacred entity once said to his people, "Evil may take over, but good will always triumph".

July 24th: Everything is going smoothly, or so I hope, so I haven't had much to post on as far as announcements go. I've actually had some extra time to go roaming around and hopefully promoting the charity and the contests. As much as I love getting art for the regulars here, these types of contests still don't seem as fun as the theme ones. I guess it's the surprise factor of seeing what Gaia artists can really do when given free rein. Hopefully I'll be able to host another of those soon, they really are the most fun I've had on this site.


May11th 2012: Some great new pre-anniversary events up! There are awesome opportunities for regulars and newcomers alike, so scroll down and check them out. Quite honestly, I'm sitting here, typing and going...'What the hell! It's been almost Seven Years! I think back when I started this charity, a few months was impressive, and now it's been years.... It's like looking into the future and seeing colonizations on other planets. But I'm not the only one, please pay your respects to the other legendary charities on Gaia and their owners. I think I'll try to get a list and maybe do something special for all of us, anyone whose stuck with it this long deserves it.

April 11th 2012: The Great Planning Charlie Brown! So I've buckled down and started setting up for the Anniversary Event. A few of the contests/games require you to be a regular so advertisement has started now. I'm going to be screening for some mods ( a first with my charity) because I want the event to be huge and I'm going to need the help. Contests right now will include an advertisement contest and the banner contest, also maybe an avi art contest (Ally wants art =0!). Games we'll have are bingo (thank you Malfoy Mistress), guess the mystery box, and a lucky number roll. More will be explained on these shortly. The main event begins August 17th!

March 23rd 2012: Great contests going on right now! We have the Easter Egg hunt and the Banner contest. I commissioned my first ever uber special signature for the charity that I'm excited about. I'm just generally happy about getting back into the swing of things on Gaia and making some nice plans for the future.

February 6th 2012: Super long and horribly unintended hiatus! I'm really sorry, but extenuating circumstances haven't allowed me to be online in quite some time. I really hope my regulars and everyone else can forgive me. I assure you it was not of my own doing and I have missed you all something terrible.


October 5th 2005: Dreamcatchers Charity opens!

Ally's Full and Uncensored Inventory

Beginning Date: Open
Ending Date: September 1st
What to expect: This event is meant to give Gaian's a chance at that expensive item they've always wanted, or help to boost the quest of a particularly ambitious dream. A lot of my inventory, will be sold or donated. Most of the commons and event items will sell to generate a hefty pot of gold. Please do not feel like you need to ask for one of the items in my inventory. Many current Cash Shop Items will be given as I have a surplus of Gaia Cash to spend. That list is there just to give you an idea of what might be given away in addition to gold. Please be honest with your requests, that's all I ask. There is no set limit to the amount of gold or the price of the items to be given out, nor is there a limit to the number of people that will receive. It's all about giving to the deserving, period.

Note: Regular Donations and Adoptions will be suspended for the duration of the Giveaway. If you've been donated to or adopted you are still eligible for the giveaway. This giveaway is closed to no one. I promise not to miss your form. Everyone is carefully recorded with their wish and page number. I will also do my best to make sure everyone gets something, even if it's not what they asked for. Expect updates on Tuesdays, I'll quote every form that was sent in and send out some giveaway items. If you don't get anything that Tuesday it means either I'm considering you for something bigger, or you haven't posted at all since your form.

Things to be Donated (or sold)
This is not a full list, and it obviously excludes gold, but it's some of the funner items I have to give.

So I do have one special item to be donated. A sweet and adorable Kiki Kitty, but like real kitties, this one needs a loving home. Well I decided that the best way to find such a home was to have a kitty naming contest. That's it! All you have to do is pick the perfect name and the kitty will be yours. Please limit one entry per Gaian. This contest will last the duration of the giveaway with winner determined on the last day. Must be active in the thread at least three days to participate.

Catch a Falling Star
A fairly easy game where all you have to do is quote the post that has a star dust bottle located in it. There are 16 in all and each one is unique and corresponds to a particular item. Be the first to quote it and win the item. I can't say when they'll be posted, but I'll try for different times of the day to be fair to international Gaians or those that just have wonky sleep schedules (like me). You may only win this game once, so choose your bottle carefully! Must be active in the thread for at least three days to participate.

Winners

Zenistar won a Nightmare Sash
Draugma won a Raging Night Jewel
xxloliipOpxx won a Song of Amour
Vampireluver123 won a Crimson Promise
