Donation Goal: ACHIEVED!


As of this moment, I can proudly call myself one of THE most generous Gaians, EVER.

No Charity Threads. No Raffles. Just me, hard work, and some key Marketplace sales. But I have done it. I have managed to achieve my goal of donating more than 5 million in gold and items to various Gaians. What started well over a year ago has now, finally come to fruitation.

How long ago was it, that I too was like the many people I donated to? Getting that one, rare piece of item that you wanted so desperately? Completing your ultimate avi look?

Ah yes... I recall those days. The struggling, the saving, the searching to make my avi what it is now. And the last bit of cloth I needed, the Nitemare Scarf... oh, how I so DESPERATELY wanted it! Weeks, months, years went by! Just when it seemed my goal was in reach, it would slip away, again and again. I thought I could never reach that ultimate prize...

But then, out of the blue, it was given to me! Donated by a very close friend, who wanted to see me happy and complete! And that moment, I knew... that I too had the power to make dreams come true. To aid others, like I was aided, in their own quests to achieve their dreams. And so, I began my Donation Quest, my own unique quest not to gain any sort of item, but rather, to give and give and give, and help others obtain the items they wanted, they desired.

Some, I gave mass amounts of gold! Others, the very items they sought after! Even the Nitemare Scarf, the one item I coveted most, was given away freely. I was satisfied having had it, having achieved my dream of owning one, if only for a short time. But I knew, it would have to be passed on. One day, perhaps it would be given to another...

The goal was simple. Through my own hard work, my own sacrifices, would I achieve this monumental task. 5 million in gold and items to give to people. Many of them, complete strangers I had never met before. But all of them, happy to know that there were generous people out there, willing to help aid them in their struggles, to let them know they were not alone in the want and desire for things...

Donation Breakdown (Note, all values are estimated):
Pure Gold Donated: 3+ mil
Nitemare Scarf: 1.5+ mil (At time of donation)
Wishlisted Items: .8+ mil (At time of donation)

Donation Total: 5.3+ mil

This is NOT the end! Though my goal has been reached, I will continue to give and give! To set the example of being generous! Go, help a quester! Donate some old items, excess gold, or even give the gift of a wanted, wishlisted item! And may you find joy in bringing joy to the lives of others.

Go Gaians!

Current donated amount: 7.3 mil+ Gold/Items.
New Donation Goal: 10mil+ Gold/Items

Congratulations, Snidne! whee

I was not aware that I had started your gold giving quest, but am glad that it happened.

Here's to millions more gold donated. =D
