  • TSM Child's Play Fundraiser

    On behalf of the entire TradeSkillMaster team,

    The Child's Play charity is a very popular charity among gamers. They work to provide video games to children's hospitals around the world. If you're unfamiliar with their work, I'd suggest you take a look at their website. The TradeSkillMaster team is very excited to announce our fundraising efforts for Child's Play and hope you will contribute!

    How you can help:
    You can help us raise money for this worthy cause in many ways.
    1. Donate through our ChipIn - We will DOUBLE all donations received through the ChipIn on our website! The only downside here is that the donations will go to TSM and be made to Child's Play on your behalf by TSM and therefore are not tax-deductible. Unfortunately this is the only way we can track donations in order to match them, and ChipIn provides a fairly transparent way for us to do this.
    2. Vote in the Poll - We will add $5 to our donation for every vote cast in the poll tied to this thread before the end of the year! This is the quickest and easiest way to show your support!
    3. Donate Directly - While we recognize that doing so is not feasible for all, if you can spare a few dollars, we highly encourage you to consider making your own donation to Child's Play.
    4. Spread the Word - Please link to this thread on your blog and social media pages to help us spread the word. Our goal is not to just donate to a worthy cause, but to encourage others to join us in doing so; as we believe the collective gaming community can do more good than any single entity.



    Why are we doing this?
    TradeSkillMaster has received an overwhelming amount of support from the WoW community over the past couple of years and we love to give back whenever possible. Child's Play is an excellent charity doing amazing work and is a charity which all the TSM developers (myself, @Drethic , @Bart39 ) are thrilled to be able to support. Thanks to everybody who uses TradeSkillMaster and those who have generously supported us for making this possible.


    Any other info?
    TradeSkillMaster will contribute up to $2000 at the end of the fundraiser, on December 31st 2012. This includes the $5 per vote in this thread as well as our matching donations from the ChipIn fundraiser. For example, if we reach the goal of the ChipIn and receive $2000, we will double that and make a $4000 donation to Child's Play!

    Please feel free to use this thread for any questions / comments. Alternatively, you may email us at contact@tradeskillmaster.com with any questions or comments regarding this fundraiser.

      While we highly encourage those who can afford it to donate, everybody should note that there are 2 ways listed above in which you can help out without contributing any money!

      Child's play is a very reputable charity, and often donated to by very many gaming communities/streamers/etc. Hopefully Consortium can pitch in enough to help as well

      I'd love to vote - but it says I'm not allowed. Perhaps other are having the same issue and that's the case with the high views / low votes?
      (BTW, can't vote in the installation poll either.)

      I'm just taking a guess, but it might be because you're ranked as an apprentice. If I remember correctly, you need to make a certain number of posts (15?) to get to the next rank.

      Either that, or I think there's a 1 - 2 week wait period...

      EDIT: Let's try some rep!

      If (and only if) you can't vote in the poll due to forum restrictions, reply in this thread with a quote of this reply and we will include that in the total votes once all is said and done. Please don't do both (vote and quote) or quote from multiple accounts. It's easy to spot.

      Another problem with voting is that the poll doesn't show up on the published post on the homepage.

      Viewers have to visit the original forum thread in order to vote.

      Great initiative! Unfortunatly, i'm down to my last dollars to live on at the moment. I found $3.94 laying around my paypal account, i chipped those in and voted on the poll. It's not much, but it's all i can give. Good luck with this!
