Welcome to Pocketful of Wishes (also known as PoW for short). This is our cute little nook on Gaia. We're an interesting group of individuals, and we love to meet new people, shoot the breeze, have deep conversations, and of course, have fun. The pace around here isn't too fast or too slow, it's just right. And there is never any shortage of things to do here. We hold periodical tektek contests, giveaways, and of course, the Monthly Millions Lottery where 10 posts could make you a millionaire. So come on in, we would love to have you chat with us!
Pay it Forward - Here at Pocketful of Wishes, we expect nothing in return from the people that we help out. It has been our long-standing goal to try and help everyone, even if we can't always make your wishes come true, every little bit helps. In these trying times, a helping hand is a very welcomed gesture indeed!
2 new permanent contests have been added. Go check them out!

Hello, I'm Phanna, but you can call me Phanna, Phan, Phanners, PhanPhan or "Hey you"
I'm the owner of Pocketful of Wishes Charity (or PoW for short).
I'm a fun person, most of the time and I am always up for some good conversation, however I am easily distracted by pretty...oh look it's a kitty!
(so don't be too upset if I miss a post or two a dozen).
I try and keep up to date on all the charity paperwork, but there are times I fall behind in that.
But anyway, come on in and know me better!
I'm Tamako Jen, but feel free to call me Tam or Jen. I'm Phan's younger sister IRL. *plot twist!* So, I know EVERYTHING that's going on!~ I'm PoW's artist, but I'm notoriously lazy! I am in the habit of giving away lots of freebies, though! My three favorite things are Sailor Moon, My Little Pony, and Harvest Moon. I also love singing and drawing. Personality wise, I'm super nice, kinda quirky, and a little inappropriate at times. And while I may be nice, I have a big say in what happens 'round here, so don't be mean to me! ;3
I'm Murder Is Kawaii. I like some things like Parks and Rec, Punk, and Cats. I dislike a lot of other things. I'm lurking here most of the time, so just know, I'm watching you with my mod eyes. Anything else you want to know about me or my interests can be found in my tumblr, link in sig.
I'm Masiakasaurus (mah-SHEE-a-kah-SAWR-us), Phanna's hubby. Mostly I come around to post comics, but I do occasionally stick around to post a bit. I like everything that is awesome: movies, video games, dinosaurs, comics, RPGs... I also lurk on Something Awful a lot, and occasionally post awesome things I find there. Since I'm sleeping with the thread owner, I'm basically second in command around here. Also, if I'm on, Phans is usually lurking over my shoulder, so behave.
These two are Duck of Sparks and Plishette, the thread mules.
They handle all the donations and games for Pocketful of Wishes.

<-----This is Phanna. She has a passion for finery and loves to look elegant. The only problem is that sometimes her wardrobe gets the better of her and she can't decide what to wear. That's where you come in, design a new outfit for Phanna, but be aware Phanna is one picky fashion maven!
Passion for Fashion Rules:
*Please follow all ToS and forum rules and be courteous to one another.
*There are no entry fees, anyone is allowed to join. You may make one outfit once a month, submitted on your main account.
*Entries are to be messaged to Phanna with the title "Hey Fashionista!"
*Entries must be your tekteks, no pre-mades.
*Although Phanna would love if you stuck to her main inventory and within a price limit, there is no need to limit yourselves. Anything goes!
*Phanna also really hates when people try to cut her hair or perform cosmetic surgery. So steer clear of salon haircuts (use wigs) and keep Phanna's skin, eyes, make-up and lip style intact (only use Cupid, Vega's Love or Gaia Sama lip styles). Also avoid "I am" poses, since they hide poor Phanna completely.
*As we said before, Phanna is very picky and detests having to share the spotlight with anyone or anything (avoid pets, companions and backgrounds.)
*Phanna also severely dislikes angel, devil and animal costumes, so it's best to avoid wings, halos, horns, tails and animal parts whenever possible. However, dressing her up as a pirate or a knight is totally okay!
*Phanna does have a certain look she gravitates to (elegant, refined and very little skin showing), as well as certain colors (deep and rich colors), but that doesn't mean you can't broaden her palate a little. However, if Phanna really doesn't see herself using that style, she will be less impressed with it.
*Payment will be determined based on how much Phanna adores your creation: (with some variations) emotion_kirakira (10 million gold) ---- *dashes to closet to put this outfit on* emotion_yatta (5 million gold) ---- "Oh my, this really is lovely. I will have to put it on someday" emotion_c8 (2.5 million gold) ---- "This is nice, but I see elements that need to be improved on" emotion_eyebrow (1 million gold) ---- "It's something I don't see myself in, sorry" emotion_zzz (nothing) --- "Did you even try?"
*Phanna also loves to model off all new creations in front of her captive friend Masiak, so there may be the occasional delay in awarding payment.
