Right guys, update on this:

godofshred is having some account issues so for now at least I'm going to take this over (with any luck he should be back and active by tomorrow anyway).


Deadline extended! This is now running until the 1st of February!

In a minute I'll post a list of who I understand to be on the list for a donation and do some maths.

Be aware guys: this 1st of Feb is planned to be the final deadline and we're trying to get to 250 for the final amount, this is a charity thing so we do need to make a decent amount of money for it to be worth the doing.

I donated 5/10 (can't recall offhand) a few weeks ago and PM'd godofshred... so, what do I do? Surely he can check his PayPal and let someone know who's paid?

No one's paid anything yet as far as I know, no one should be taking any money from anyone unless we know either it's worth it or we've reached the target amount, not to put too fine a point on it but right now we've got 138 in donations and that's just not enough.

Either way, I have a list of everyone who's pledged and how much they've said they'll give so here it is:

Code:
Mazzakazza:777 :5 Littlemurph7976: 500 :5 Zaphod_Beeblebr:666 :5 AngryGoldfish:114 :5 Mwoit :419 :5 ippon:415 :5 disk11:809 :5 mmolteratx:436 :5 gregs1020: 513 :5 zYx Monster xYz : 333 :5 guitarguyz61: 775 :5 kylendm : 678 :5 SYLrules88: 844, :5 CoreysMonster 313 :5 stevo_92: 101 :5 Tom 1.0 : 754 :10 littlephil - 223 :10 Wesbanez : 930 :10 xXMetal-HeadXx: 367 :10 Connorhxcchaos: 89 :10 Bowen: 210 :6 Godofshred :7 :7


C'mon guys, 5 for the chance to win a Bareknuckle pickup is SO worth the money and the profits go to charity, we need more people!

I think Nick was just looking for paypal details so he'd know when the time came who was donating and who had yet to pay, when this was first put together it was only supposed to take a month anyway.

Winner pays shipping and handling so we don't care where you're from

And no, if the target is hit then the raffle will go until the date anyway; we're doing this for charity so limiting the amount of money we get from it makes no sense at all.

The raffle is being run by The Legion's fearless (and AWOL) leader but the 6 string option is fine, we really don't care but whatever, I'll add you to the list

Code:
Mazzakazza:777 :5 Littlemurph7976: 500 :5 Zaphod_Beeblebr:666 :5 AngryGoldfish:114 :5 Mwoit :419 :5 ippon:415 :5 disk11:809 :5 mmolteratx:436 :5 gregs1020: 513 :5 zYx Monster xYz : 333 :5 guitarguyz61: 775 :5 kylendm : 678 :5 SYLrules88: 844, :5 CoreysMonster 313 :5 stevo_92: 101 :5 Tom 1.0 : 754 :10 littlephil - 223 :10 Wesbanez : 930 :10 xXMetal-HeadXx: 367 :10 Connorhxcchaos: 89 :10 Bowen: 210 :6 Godofshred :7 :7 Linqua5150:538 :5


Which brings us to a grand total of 143 so far, we need 21 more people to reach our target!

Edit: Don't worry about it just yet dude, we have no intention of taking any money until the raffle itself is over, until then we're not even sure if there will be a raffle at this rate

no payments have yet been taken or given..this was said in the first post. I have not taken ANY payments yet, or listed my paypal.

PAYPAL will be taken around the closing date, i hope this is clear to people!
if you cannot pay or wish to withdraw..please give at least 1 weeks notice!

Is there any way to give this more promotion? I don't think many people know this is happening.

VampireGoldfish messaged me about promotion a few days back, UG itself has to treat this very carefully as you can probably guess and posting it to other forums might not look so kindly on it what with it being basically free advertising for BKP and obviously duplicate post rules and so forth.
