It is with great regret and sadness that I offically announce that GamersCharity is closing down.
It was almost one year ago that a small idea of mine brought the Ultima Online community together in ways I could never have imagined, and we worked together to donate over $10,000 to Charity organizations that helped those affected by natural disasters. I met some great people along the way, and do not regret the loss of sleep or negligence at work and home.
The last two months of this year has been full of stress at work and home, and I honestly have not had the time to do much with Ultima Online or GamersCharity in the past month.
I do have a few auctions left I can throw out, which I aim to do this week. If anyone noticed, all the auctions in the past few months were 100% donation (except for only a couple), and I will sell some personal items next year on my normal eBay account to try and offset those expenses.
I know some people wished to continue GamersCharity - however for legal reasons I am keeping the domain. If anyone wishes to follow in my footsteps, I will of course throw all my advice I can to you.
It's been a pleasure, and my sincere apologies for bringing it to a closure.
Gamers Charity is happy to announce that as of last night, total donations to Charities focusing on giving aid to natural disaster victims from the Tsunami and the Hurricanes over $10,000.
A huge Thank You to everyone who has donated items for Auctions, to those that purchased the auctions online, to those that organized in-game functions to raise donations, and others that used the online airwaves, forums, and websites to promote GamersCharity. All of this would not have been possible without you !
My credit card issues have been solved, and MissionFish is happy to get their latest payment for $1,000 !
That means Auctions are back online!
Auctions are on hold a bit at the moment due to Credit Card issues, that isn't allowing Mission Fish to collect their donations (and so far has one of my UO Accounts on hold!)
It really is a funny story what's going on, so if you want to read about a page in my personal life, read on. I expect Auctions to be back as soon as my new card arrives in the mail.
I am leaving town today and back on Sunday.
Brekkee is now in charge! Please contact her if you have any donations to give.
I have also placed several auctions on eBay this morning before I leave, that end the day after I return. Be sure to check them out!
I have uploaded the new spreadsheet, and it shows the total donation to Charity this year is $9,691.59.
Thanks all, and see you when I get back!
UORadio.com has organized an impressive lottery, in which Ultima Online players can help donate to Charity and win some virtual gold!
UORadio.com is proud to announce that it will begin doing a weekly lottery for a chance for people to win up to 100 million gold on the shard of their choice with the exception of Siege and Mugen (in which the prize amounts are reduced by two-thirds if chosen) in which will serve as a fund-raiser for both Gamers Charity (who are using the gold sales to support those affected by Hurricane Katrina and soon to be Hurricane Rita) and UORadio.com
