THE LEMONADE STAND IS BACK IN BUSINESS! HOWEVER, IT IS BEING RUN BY A DIFFERENT, WONDERFUL AUTHOR HERE ON WRITING.COM. PLEASE SEE THE NEW AND IMPROVED LEMONADE STAND!
Come on in! Feeling thirsty? Go ahead and make yourself some lemonade...but it's going to cost you! Everything has a price nowadays, nothing ever is free...unless you have some angels on your side.
Writing.com, it seems, is always about helping others around us. If we have a few extra gps in our pockets we love to give them away to groups and free members so that they can have a better chance of getting all the benefits they can from this site.
That's why I developed The Lemonade Stand! Everyone knows the old saying, 'When life gives you lemons - make lemonade.' So what about when life gives someone else too many lemons to make their way through? We can help make the lemonade for them!
So how does it work?
It's simple! All you have to do is go down to the bottom of the survey and donate! Every gp that you give will go to a pitcher designated for a certain group or activity around the site. And for every amount that you give, you will get a special sig, showing everyone that you have helped make some lemonade and maybe get some other people to contribute!
But that's not all...
You also can submit in a item from your port, which I will rate and review! I will also post your name and that item on a special page - can you say 'more readers'?! The person who donates the most to a certain pitcher will get a special highlight of their item as well! So while you give to others, you get something more in return than just some self satisfaction!
It's easy, so let's get squeezing!
Round Seventy Nine's Pitcher Will Go To...
One pitcher holds 25,000 gps, once that is reached the entire pitcher will be given to the group above and a new one will be chosen.
CURRENT PITCHER LEVEL - 0 gps!
Round Seventy Seven's pitcher was successfully filled and given to "Invalid Item" by A Guest Visitor !
Know of a group that deserves a pitcher? Post here!
This person donated the most to the last pitcher!
drpolm with 40,000 gps!
last round's busy squeezer GigglePea
HUGE thank you to tbcsweet, Casey and "Invalid Item" for the awardicons!!
Each new level that you reach will earn you a new sig, whose item number I will send privately to you after I receive your gps!
Sugar Packet Level - 50 gps
*Note:* If you want to donate 50 gps, you'll have to do it in a review, not in the survey
Lemon Quarter - 500 gps
Lemon Half - 1000 gps
Full Lemon - 2000 gps
Lemon and Half - 3000 gps
Two Lemons - 4000 gps
Three Lemons - 6000 gps
Basket of Lemons - 8000 gps
Glass of Lemonade - 10,000 gps
Pitcher of Lemonade - 20,000 gps
Pitcher, Glass, and Lemon - 30,000 gps
A Whole Lemon Tree - 40,000 gps and up
The best part is, if you want the whole lemon tree, you don't have to donate all 40k gps all at once! You can start small, maybe just 500 at first and then you can grow! Give more to certain groups as it's their pitcher, it's all your choice!
Links You Should See!
Additional prizes will be given out occasionally to certain 'squeezer' - the gps for them will come right from my own stash! I may award the item that you have plugged an awardicon because you donated a certain specific amount, but you don't know what!
If you want, you may simply send the giftpoints in a review or email instead of using the survey. That way if you want to start out with 50 gps you may. Whatever you want, I'm not picky!
So come on angels! Let's get SQUEEZING!
PLEASE, NO DONATIONS AT THIS SURVEY.
