What is it? ~ A Ceremony to Award and Reward the Hard-Working People that bring the community of Questers together
My Gaian History:
I joined Gaia in January of 2005, so its been quite awhile. This is not my main account, but it seems like it, because I have more posts on this than my main. For your info, my main account is Seronya. When I first came to Gaia, I was most entranced in the lotto section, and hopes of making gold there, but at the end of each lotto, I loved giving away extra suprises you might say. So then after 5 sucessful lottos I went in Charity.
I own two Charities, The Giveaway Charity and LoveDoc's 50 Coco Kitty Bash. I started in the charity business in Summer 2005, and have stuck to it since then, and amazed at the number of charities has grown since then.

Charity Name: Dark Dreams Charity
Co-owners? If yes, name them: Habeas Corpus
Why you think you deserve an award[Keep it short]: We worked hard to make the donation process unique. We are decently well organized and keep track of every donation and every post, along with funds. I also think it is a plus that, even though our charity is big and gives decent donations.... all of my staff consists of new or not very rich people. We just wanted to help those in need even if we didn't have much to give.
Accomplishments in Charity: Approximately 1 mil gold given away within the charity, many contests, lots of praise (people give us presents for some reason DX), and.... we've somehow managed to keep it alive as long as we have, and pretty active, woot
Side Notes: I don't know what kinda prize my charity would be good for, I just thought I would see if this might actually get us some recognition and more people to visit atleast... Most of all... if I win something good, I can give to donatees, yay biggrin

Charity Name: The Unwielding Charity
Co-owners? If yes, name them: There's staff, but no co-owners.
Why you think this charity deserves an award[Keep it short]: This is a charity whose owner is willing to sell her own personal rare items (Golden Laurels, Pheonix Headband) to earn money so she can keep donating to needy questors. It provides fun and services for Gaians as well. The owner's an awesome person, and it's one of those charities that can help other charities get involved in larger events (The Easter Egg Hunt, for example).
(I swear on my life that's a short description!)
Accomplishments in Charity: Well, aside from giving away nearly 50k since it's started:
- Opening fun threads during events (with the exception of the April 1st event)
- Teaming up with another charity to give away or sell items from events throughout the whole of the past year.
- And (what I think takes the cake) teaming up with a new charity, assisting the owner until the owner can, basically, "walk on her own."
Side Notes: ...purple! I can't think of anything to put here.. sweatdrop
Username[s]: DaMagicalPanda Our mule is TheKitchenCharityMule Join Date: August 19th, 2oo5 Charity Name: The Kitchen Charity (TKC) Charity Link+Banner: We’re in our third thread, so the links to the previous two are included. Please excuse any missing banners, my photobucket was cleared of the old ones. Thread number 1 Thread number 2
Co-owners? If yes, name them: Vvryn, Villyn, and Starry Aura. Also, the people on the staff list give us input and assist in telling someone they failed. Why you think you deserve an award[Keep it short]: Because we are all very nice and giving, and want to keep on giving to questers. We’d also love to be able to get a hold of a donation letter and have a writing contest to attract people/ give our regulars a reward. Accomplishments in Charity: We’ve managed to stay alive for 3 months, given out over 15o,ooo gold, helped a few newbies, and make people generally feel right at home. We also are an amazing community and gather together to give other regulars presents if it’s their birthday. Side Notes: I swear on my life that there’s no more drama and I had nothing to do with… I’ve said too much. We also have free cookies. <3 And if you have any questions as to why we moved twice, or anything, just PM me. Oh, and ya know the coco bash inspired me to make TKC. 3nodding

Join Date: our charity was created January 2, 2006

Co-owners? If yes, name them: We have an amazing 8 person staff under Wills but no co-owners
Why you think you deserve an award[Keep it short]: I think our charity deserves an award because we provide a friendly environment for anyone that comes in.Our charity even adopted the mrgreen because we're always happy to see new people! And we also make sure to stop by each thread and post at least once if possible.

Co-owners? If yes, name them: Co-Owner: Ciz
Moderators: Seishuku Tsuki, Sinfair, Spastic_Shivelamouse
Why you think you deserve an award[Keep it short]: I believe our charity deserves an award because we have been around since August 1st, 2005 and always strive to help others before ourselves. As the charity owner, I will put my own gold in our charity account before using it for myself, often funding the donations out of my own pocket because we rarely recieve donations to help with our work. We have donated to almost 300 people, helping to end countless quests, and often have people remain after recieving a donation to converse and help bump just because our charity is a good, friendly and fun-loving envorionment that people genuinely enjoy being in. We offer more than just donations, having regular contests for art, banners, avatars and more, and allow people to come back on their next quest for another donation. We also showcase other charities and useful threads in our link areas. We have page contests to allow people to win extra pocket cash by being the first to post on certain pages, and love to also randomly give gold out to people we meet on Gaia, whether they visit our charity or not. Accomplishments in Charity: We have donated to almost 300 people, and finished many quests.
Side Notes: Our charity has helped so very many people, yet has gone largly un-noticed by the general Gaia populace. I hope that by entering this contest more people may find us and get the help that they need to make their Gaia dreams come true! <3
I swear on my life!
