Hope to see you there!

This is a charity that is sometimes a charity and, for the rest of the time,
just a place to hang out and make friends.

Why, you might ask? Because we're not famous people on Gaia
that have money rolling in like snowflakes on Christmas day
or have the time (or want to spend the time, really) to make ridiculous
amounts of gold for ridiculous amounts of prizes all day every day.

Now, that's not to say we won't have ridiculously awesome prizes,
but give us some time between shifts of awesomeness and we'll prove you wrong.

Everyone is always welcome. No applications or entrance fees required!

When you are looking at a thread that deals with items or money
you need to have rules in order to keep things from falling apart.
We love you, but we don't want to get mobbed and we want to
be able to keep everything straight and organized. Otherwise we
shall tear our hair out.

General Thread Rules
+ Please read over the first page before posting.
+ ToS above all!
+ Be kind to everyone, especially us, because we're the ones giving stuff away, you know...
+ Do not beg for things please, you get what you get when you get it.
+ Have fun, stick around, we enjoy company and if we like you you're likely to get more...just saying.
+ Do not quote anything from the first page.
+ Do not advertise here please.
+ Don't spam the thread with bumps, especially if we're here.
+ Greet people as they come in. It's the only way you'll meet new people, after all.
+ We will not quote you to get your attention, if you want something, come back again.
+ Rules may change at any time we feel the need.


Donating/Receiving Rules
For Donating
+ All transactions must go to the charity mule (TSBNAC)
unless they are personal donations for the admins
+ Do not send a trade to any of the staff members here
to donate to the thread, or we will assume it's for us.
+ If you want to donate directly to anyone in the thread, please do so!


For Recieving
+ Do not post your dream avi/quest/link to your quest thread here asking for help.
+ People who receive items or gold will be picked at random (outside of contests).
+ You do not need a quest thread to get a donation.
+ Do not complain about the donation you receive, we give according to activity and what we have.
+ Art quests are welcomed here as well, not just item/gold quests!


Black List
This is the list of people who just couldn't quite follow our rules.
Do NOT listen to anything they say. If you see them around on a mule, inform a staff member.
