Welcome all to the Starveling Tritons(Thank you random words from the dictionary.^^) Charity Thread!
Ofcourse we all know how a charity works. It's myself and Bookish being generally charitable to you, our fellow Gaians.
But why a charity?
Well, we're both content with everything about our accounts...and the fact that me and Bookish have exceptionally big hearts when it comes to helping alot of you and we like it!^^
Don't you want items/donations?
Oh boy, yeah! But it's better to be selfless instead of selfish. So that's why we will use any donations recieved to better others.
Can I have Items/Gold?
Ofcourse you can! We make it our soul purpose on Gaia to aid and assist you all the best we can. That being said, we're not really robots...well atleast Bookish isen't. So whatever we can get will be put up for donations.
How can I obtain what seems un-obtainable?
We just ask you to stick around for good conversation and support. We see all. ninja So we know if some of you are being generous or just being a brat. Being active/donations/art/etc... shall surelly secure you a place to be donated to.^^
3/7/07: Slacking like always I suppose. :/ But We have appreciated all that has bee acomplished with this place and I figured I should leave it with an ending.
Friends have come from far and wide to enjoy this places great conversation/ atmosphere and through many trials have formed friendships. I just want to thank you all. And wish many good things for all of you.
2/14/07: Happy Valentines Day!<3 I just thought I should finally update.xP The thread has progressed quite abit...and I thank you all for that. The race is on for that 100k that was so wonderfully donated to s by the 'Mysterious' ShadowsofLife.<3 We will have a new staff member climing the ranks soon too. Welcome Tabitha_Star.^^
WE LOVE J00 ALL!<3
1/4/07: It comes sooner than you all think. wink
12/17/06: This may come as a surprise to alot of you but as a joint decision between Bookish and I, we've decided to temporarley put this charity on hiatus. I want to think everyone for thier support and apologize to the people who never got the chance to be entertained within these walls. Bookish and I have no regrets in opening this charity. It's become something bigger than we ever expected it to be. Nearing it's 40000th post. =O
What pushed this plan into motion is the difficult times we're having with our accounts. We cannot trade or enjoy all the wonderful things Gaia has to offer. So until we get these problems fixed this charity shall remain closed.
If Bookish or I have dissapointed you, we're sorry. But we need to get things fixed...for us.
But here's some good news! 'Cause our staff is not ready to go on 'Hiatus' and joint effort between 'Teh Brittie' and 'Jessk' they've decided open another charity. It's the reborn b*****d child of this charity.^^ So for you regulars that enjoyed this place so can find solice(sp?) there. I shall release that as soon as it's up and running.
We love you all.
11/24/06:Hey everyone, hope everyone enjoyed their thanksgiving!!!! The charity is still doing awesome.. Brittie has helped 86 different people, which when merged with bun's list is about 100 people total 9lots of overlap to be accounted for) so yay for helping 100 people!!! Brittie has also sent 225 trades full of donations =). Apparently some kind of contest is coming soon, but the mysteriousness of it is that noone except B u n B u n seems to understand what. That's okay the prizes are ready when everyone else is. A special thanks to everyone who has helped keep this place alive and well, and especially for keeping it a nice, enjoyable hangout for everyone involved. STC- best place ever.
10/31/06:HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO EVERYONE!^^ That time is here, time for tricks and treats. The staff wishes the best for everyone today. And ZOMG! We are nearing 20000 posts. eek I want to thank everyone that has stuck by us thus far...and we would be giving out donations on a regular, but it seems that both Bookish and I have a disabled trading past... stare But never fear cause Teh Brittie and Jessk have taken it upon themselves to hand out donations to people. heart Much love and respect for them.<33
I hope everyone keeps on keeping on.^^
