Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Hey GR.. so this is what I'm doing.

My mom does this relay for life race every year for raising money for cancer.. and she gets all into it and tries to make more money than the year before.. This year she was hoping she'd raise 1000$.. well I just pushed her over that mark with a $100 donation.. but I want to shock her.. I'm asking all my friends, and people on message boards if they wouldn't mind pitching in. I don't care if its 1$, or no dollars, if no one wants to thats cool, no hard feelings, i understand everyone wants money these days and everyone has their causes of choice. Just thought I'd give it a shot..

Anyway, if interested here is the info

EDIT: Direct link is right here, makes things easier

https://secure2.convio.net/cco/site/Donation2?idb=385969025&df_id=20074&20074.donation=form1&FR_ID=12447&PROXY_ID=4016530&PROXY_TYPE=20

http://convio.cancer.ca/site/PageServer?pagename=RFL_CAN_NATL_homepage

then click make a donation

select Pledge a participant or team

Search for an individual participant.

First name: Judy
Last name: Cody

her team name is Sharon and Maxine's Blue Butterflies *shrug*, select donate now on her name.

PLEASE if you do this do not make some terribly rude name.. it would go from making her day to ruining it and embarrassing the hell out of her.. shes a teacher and these are mostly teacher friends on her team. Just use your name or make it anonymous.

After you have donated let me know, as well as the name you donated it under.

If the donations exceed 200$ from GR combined, I will buy a random person that donated the game of their choice from Steam. If you're waiting on a game release, that's cool I can wait until it comes out, don't care if said game is 59.99

I don't even know if this is allowed but I hope it is.. would be the best mothers day present ever and I'm kind of excited.

Thanks guys, even if i get nothing, for your time Very Happy

I donated $25 under "Cory H"

I think I donated to the team instead of to her specifically though, because of course I did it wrong. Haha. Oh well.

Good idea, man. Happy mom day.

Well, i donated at the screen after you clicked "search for team" or person. It had their team name in a table, DONATE NOW, and her name. So, I just clicked on the donate now. Hopefully I did it right.

Yeah, I see we donated to the whole team. I would have donated more, but I got a tight budget.

I gave 6 dollars. I would've given more, but I'm what is known as a poor student without work.

Hope she has a happy mother's day.

I didn't care about the drawing either, but I'll still be part of the drawing for the fun.
