A Brief History: Wings Outspread was in the planning stages for several months before it came into existence. It was finally born when two friends finally decided to make the dream of making a difference in the lives of others actually happen. Dedicated, we worked hard to create a place where both newcomers and oldcomers can get the help for anything that seems out of their reach. With that said, we welcome you to our little space in the world. We hope you make new friends, and may our charity help you take a couple steps closer to reaching your dreams.

Bio: The name is Butterfly, but most call me Bk for short. I'm one of little words when it comes to describing myself. I've been on gaia for almost 5 years now. My "gaiaversary" lands on March 5th. My birthday is March 28th. All in all, I consider the month of march to be holy and sacred. As for school, I plan on going into the medical field. I have several hobbies of which I have too many to list. If you have any questions about the charity, don't be afraid to ask them. I hope you have fun & welcome to our charity!
Bio: Hey! The name's Karu. I've been on Gaia for a while now, & have worked in other charities before. When Butterfly said she wanted to open up one I jumped at the chance to be a part of it so here I am. I can be awkward meeting new people so please be patient. I am nice & funny, I just try too hard to get people to like me. I'm nice to everyone until someone is rude. So be sure you follow the rules of the thread or else I'll have to be mean. twisted I'm studying pharmacy to be certified & work at a pharmacy as well. I love the colors blue & purple. I love avi art. I'm not totally creative but I try very hard anyway. I also ramble sometimes and can get super hyper. So if you see me hopping just hop along with me until I tire myself out. ^_^ Nice meeting you all and welcome to the charity!
This is the charity mule!

You should find a linked page from our guild containing the member list[here].
Member Spotlight! This section of the post is dedicated to our member of the month. To become our member of the month all you have to do is stay active. We choose a different member of the charity each month to be listed here. The winner of the member spotlight also wins a monthly collectible letter.
April's spotlight belongs to: II Certified II
Dice Contest! This game is a 24/7 and is open for everyone including visitors and non-members! Roll 10 dice that are also 10 sided. The roll only counts if it is made in this thread.
Winning numbers & prizes are as follows: 10-20 = 25k
21-24 = 5k
25-30 = Item worth 10k or under
80-85 = Item worth 10k or under
86-89 = 5k
90-100 = 15k
Note: You must actually roll a number within the number ranges. It does not count for a combination of rolls.
Upon winning you must PM the charity mule with the page number you won on. If for whatever reason we are unable to find this winning post, we will ask that you include a link. Limit 3 wins per day
RNG Contest #1! Generate a number between 1 and 2012. The first charity member to generate a 1547, will win the chance item, Super Prize 2012! Upon winning, you must PM the charity mule, Wings Outspread Charity, with the page number of which you have won on. Links are greatly appreciated.

If you have won once, you may not win a second time in a row. If a member is active two months in a row, the next most active person will be rewarded for that month.
Donations are always accepted.
If you would like to donate to the charity, please send a trade titled Donation to Charity to the username Wings Outspread Charity.
If you would like to receive a donation from Wings Outspread, the most we ask is you follow the rules and stay active. Any form of begging will decrease the likelihood of you getting a donation from us.
Giveaways! Giveaways will always be on a Sunday. They will occur at least once a month at mininum if not every other Sunday. The time they occur at on Sundays will be random (usually in the evening, this is based off central time in the U.S.). (It depends on the staff members work schedules.) Their duration will be an hour long. In order to receive a donation from a giveaway you are required to post in the charity during its duration. It does not count if you post before or after. Giveaways are for members only. It's easy to become a member and get the free goodies! See Members post to learn more about memberships.
I would prefer to keep this area neat and orderly. Our affiliates are grouped by charities, quests, and shops. If you wish to become one of our affiliates, I will ask that you provide a banner that is strictly 200 x 40px or 88 x 31px in a pm to our charity mule, Wings Outspread Charity. We would also appreciate the coutesy if you applied one of our own banners to your threads. Thank you.
