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+ Do not quote anything from the first page.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!
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.
Yo, yo, yo. Everyone here calls me Flop, except for a select few who
get to know the magic of my real name (which is actually on my profile
if you're REALLY creepy). I'm a red-headed crazy person who spends way
too much time working at the local newspaper. When I'm not working, I'm
usually spending my time going to or working on assignments for class as
I am going onto my senior year at SUNY Plattsburgh. Journalism major
with three minors: English, business and anthropology. Have been dating
the same handsome man for almost three years now. We live together. It's
exciting. We even have the cutest kitten ever named Echo, and if you ever
want me to show you a picture of her awesomeness, then I'd totally be down.
Other than that, I try to be a charitable person and I love getting to meet so
many different questing people on here, so please please please feel free to
chat me up. PS: I do play favorites. (Oops, did I just say that? JK.) Profile — Private Message — Twitter
Hey guys! the name is tastiizombii, but you can just call
me Zombii! I'm a long standing Gaian Veteran. One that has
always been on the art freebie forum, drawing your avatars and
spamming you with art. I've always contributed to the averaged
Gaian's art whore need, now I am helping to fuel their gold hunger
by helping them with their quests! I'm a mommy, a student, a
gamer, and a roleplayer so I'm not always on Gaia; sometimes
I'm at class, sometimes I'm playing an MMO online, sometimes
I'm writing replies to threads on other sites, but most of the time
I'm making sure my kids don't set the house on fire and feeding
them, you know mommy things. I'll try and be around as much
as I can and I love making new friends and chatting up the Gaia

Ello Ello I'm Ikki. Been Ikki/Ikki Minowara on Gaia since 2003. I took
a long break once and phase in and out sometimes but I basically have been
around for 9 years. I have taken part in most of the forums over time including
some aspects of Gaia that no longer exist but I no longer pay that close
attention to the forums or the items. IU work basically full time and when not
working I design stuff, work on models, build things, or destroy things. I'm into
Dirt bikes and ATVs, cosplay and prop making, model kits (Been seriously
building models for 20 years, it's a sickness.), design and engeering from small
items up to orbital colonies and I'm hoping to be going back to school for
engineering soon. I also like cats and of course tigers are the best. I am a tiger
myself though I usually appear to be a white cat. I do NOT quote and my quote
notification is always off so if you need me be clear and give it time. Feel free
to quote me of course but if I quote you it is VERY serious. Private Message — Profile
TSBNAC Our trusty mule and barer of all charity-related gifts.
Here is a list of things the charity is trying to get.
This will change regularly so keep checking back!
Items we will take/are looking for: anything unwanted
gift boxes (blue, brown, pink, etc.)
chests (the mysterious ones you get, not your body)
any and all bugs/inks
EVENT ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
My grandmother passed away this past week, so I will be out of town and have to deal with that.
With how far behind I am on points and such already, I feel it's only fair to all of you that I put this on hold for now.
While on hold, you will not be allowed to earn any more points.
When the game resumes, you will start with the same number of points you left off with.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience guys, but I need some me time right now and don't want to stress about letting everyone down here.
