"Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you'll land among stars!"
BUMPING CONTEST: There will be no contest for August 2014 since I will be away from Gaia for most of the month. Bumping contest will resume in Sept 2014 as usual.
DONATIONS: As stated above I will be away for most of August and as such any donation requests during that time I will be responded to when I do get on Gaia. You are welcome to apply, but know that it will take much longer than usual to get your donation.
Hi! ^_^ I'm AstronomyGirl. You can call me AG for short if you like. Welcome to my quest and charity thread. Though now that I've completed my ultimate quest, this thread is just a charity thread.
This charity thread is designed to help those questing for Monthly Collectable items. Anything from the first halo to the most recent letters. Questing something different? You are still welcome to apply, but you will have to stick around and show that you are dedicated to your quest.
I've named this thread Reaching for the Stars because I had to reach for the stars to go for my own quests, and with my charity I hope to help others reach for their stars. I also really love astronomy, which is probably evident from my username. lol
So thanks for stopping by. ^_^ Scroll down for more info on my quest and charity.

0) Follow Gaia TOS. This one is a given since you have to follow that anywhere on Gaia.
1) Please be nice. No flamming, name calling, swearing, whatever. I like nice and happy. ^_^
2) Yes you CAN advertise here. ONLY ONCE though. Advertise whatever you want; quests, charities, mini-shops, whatever. I think there's a forum rule now saying no advertising in other people's threads, but I don't mind one post advertising another thread or arena post of whatever. I like seeing what's out there.
3) Bumping and posting is muchly loved! ^_^ I'd prefer if people chatted instead of just bumping, but if you just bump I'm not going to get mad at you.
4) DON'T STRETCH THE PAGE OR MAKE LONG POSTS SAYING 'BUMP'! I HATE THAT SO MUCH!!!
--- quoting any posts on the front page
--- posts with lots of quotes
5) Please try and be literate. I can read chatspeak, but I'd rather not have to.
6) No complaining about charity donations or anything related to this quest & charity. That's an instant black listing with no warning.
Due to inflation and a very large donation, I've decided to expand my charity to include more quests. My charity was originally made to help those on small quests. First for those quests under 100,000, then for those quests under 500,000. This was because much of my early questing (2007 and before) was for smaller item that were under 100k. I got fustrated with charities because they would make me wait for a donation and I would usually finish my quest in that time. With today's inflation it is unrealistic to use these same standards as I used years ago. So my charity is now getting an update.
This charity is designed to help those questing Monthly Collectable (MC) items. I've always loved MCs and while there are some awesome other items out there, MCs are usually my favourites. If you are questing a monthly collectable item or letter, no matter how expensive, you can apply and get a donation asap. ^_^
Are you looking for a donation but not questing a monthly collectable? You're still welcome to apply, but I ask that you stick around for a little longer. A couple days perhaps? I want to see that you are dedicated to your quest.
If you are donating gold, please send it to my charity account: Attentea.
If you are donating MC items or letters please send them to this account: AstronomyGirl.

OMGWHATAMIGOINGTODOWITHSOMUCHGOLD! Come one come all!
Attentea - This is my mule account that I use for the charity. SEND CHARITY DONATIONS TO THIS ACCOUNT.
1) Have a quest thread. I don't care if you just made it or have been going at it for a while, I want to see that you are dedicated enought to this quest to have a thread where you keep track of your progress.
2) Please bump/post 5 times before you post your application. That way I know you really want a donation.
3) Please post this form in the thread. DO NOT PM ME WITH IT! DO NOT CHANGE THE COLOUR OR I MIGHT NOT SEE IT.
What are you questing for?:
Quest thread link:
How much you have/how much you need:
How much would you like from me? (be reasonable):
Why should I donate to you?:
4) You may take as many times as you need to get the application correct. The more times you take though the less happy I'll be with you and the smaller your donation will be, so it's best to get it right when you first post it.
5) Only one donation per quest. I will be keeping track.
MAKE SURE TO REMEMBER:
--- Those questing for monthly collectables will get priority. If you're questing for something different then that you can still apply, but you will also have to stick around and bump/post to show you are dedicated to your quest.
--- I will get you your gold asap. I'm not on Gaia all day or every day, so you might have to wait a bit.
--- You probably won't get all the gold that you ask from me. I might not have that much, or I might not think you deserve that much. I just have that there so that I can get an idea how much you are looking for right now.
--- If I do give a donation to you please put a link to this thread or my banner in your quest thread. It will make me very happy and more people will find out about this charity. ^_^
--- If you have read and understand everything then post "AstronomyGirl look here!" in red with your application.

UPDATE: There will be no bumping contest for August 2014. I will be getting married early August and won't be around for most of the month to check on the thread.
This contest is simple. The first person to reach 1000 bumps/posts each month will win a donation letter from that month. ^_^ So get bumping and posting!
--- Please number your posts/bumps. It doesn't count if it's not numbered.
--- Each new contest starts at the beginning of each month and I use mountain standard time.
--- Each month there will be one winner. The first person to bump to 1000 starting on the first monday of the month and ending at the end of the month.
--- If you are also asking for a donation you can still participate and your 5 bumps that you have to do to get a donation also count towards this.
--- Some of your bumps must be talking bumps, not just 'bump'.
--- You can only win once every three months. Eg. If you win in January you can't win in Febuary or March.
--- any other questions post here or pm me.
- Amelia(aka I know who you are...) - for bumping in my past few quest threads and now this one. ^_^ And for being a good friend. Good luck with your many quests!
-flyyydreamgrl (and her mules) - for her occasional bumps here and being a nice person.
-Pegasid - for bumping lots and not always expecting something in return. And advertising all my threads. ^_^ THANKS! YOU ARE AWESOME! heart
-forgivenmuch (and her mules) - for being a great bumper and a nice person. ^_^
--AethelwynePixie- - For being here alot and bumping so much and being an awesome person. ^_^
-ChipmunkChucker - for being around every now and then and being an awesome person. ^_^
To celebrate getting my panda hat, I've decided to give away all the MC letters and items that I've been holding onto to. I didn't need them to get my panda hat, so I want to pay it forward and help out many other people with their quests. Read on to learn how you can get an MC letter/item.
HOW TO GET SOMETHING:
-I will be giving out the items to someone who is actually questing that item. Either the letter itself, or one of the items inside the letter. I will not give you something just for you to sell to get gold for your quest. I want someone who actually wants the item and is going to wear/use it.
-On that note, I want to see that you are going to use the item that you are asking for. Quest threads are great for this and will guarentee you the letter if I have it. I'll accept anything though that shows you will use the item in the letter. Future quests, holiday avatars, and things that you like but aren't questing for at the moment are all fine and you'll have a good chance of getting the letter.
-Check the list below to see if I have the item you're looking for. If I don't have it, then I'm sorry you're out of luck.
-If you meet the above requirements, then go ahead and post in my thread here. ^_^ Introduce yourself and your quest and include and links to threads (Basically let me know which item you would like). I will quote/reply to you from there.
-OR BUMP 1000 TIMES IN THIS THREAD!
(Not to be confused with the bumping contest listed in a previous post. If you are bumping for one of these letters please specify that when you start your bumping.)
Big Ticket Items: I will decide who I give these to. You can not bump 1000 times to get these items. Demonic Pendant Baby Seal Slippers Steel-plated Ninja Band
Frostbite Blade x4 Red Wing Black Ops Gear Holy Gauntlets Assassin's Guise Mythrill Halo Celestial Soldier Light Magic Prima Poppet Antique Pierrot Celestial Veil Celebrity Date Wonderland
