~ MB Bonanza~ CLOSED FOR NEW SIGN-UPS
Let's Celebrate Each Other...and Save a Membership!
First Place Winner of "The Best of the Rest" December 2009! Thank you, StephB for this honor, and for the gorgeous ribbon!
~CLOSED FOR NEW SIGN-UPS~
This pay-it-forward activity is perfect for members who love to review, love to have their work reviewed, and love receiving a merit badge!
This round is special! My dear friend and amazing writer/poet, Robin Cherokeescribe has encountered the unthinkable: Family challenges and financial hardships have kept her away from her computer -- and her membership lapsed. Now, her poems -- archived solely on WDC -- are locked.
For the first time ever, The Merit Badge Bonanza will have a beneficiary. I'm asking for a 10K entrance donation to join, in addition to the 10K Merit Badge you pledge to send to the member you'll be paired up with. (In other words, the total cost is 20K to participate in this fundraiser.)
Robin needs $98, or close to 980,000 GPs to unlock her account. That's a lot for one person, but when each of us pitches in 10K, we chip away at that mountain until it's surmountable!
Update! Thanks to the enormous generosity of WDC members, we were able to raise a whooping 1,003,500 GPs for Robin -- in just 3 DAYS! As of 5/13, all entry donations will go to "RAOK Upgrade Brigade Group" ! Thanks for being awesome supporters of your fellow writers!
ANY PARTICIPANT WHO DONATES 50K OR MORE WILL RECEIVE AN ADDITIONAL MERIT BADGE FROM ME!
HOW TO PLAY:
Post a message in this forum pledging to read and review ONE item from another member's port and to send one merit badge. (REMEMBER, MERIT BADGES COST 10,000 GPs ).
Include (at least) a 10,000 GP donation with your post. All proceeds go to Cherokeescribe and various WDC groups. Anyone donating 50K or more will receive a second merit badge from me!!
I will add your name to the list below.
On Friday, MAY 28th, I will pair your name with another player. I will notify you by email whose name you got. PLEASE NOTE: If you notice a player signed up in the forum who you would rather not be paired up with, please send me a private email so I can accommodate you!
You will go to that member's port and choose an item. Read and review the item, and based on its strengths, send the member a merit badge. (For example, if it was an outstanding poem, you could send a Poetry MB. If the premise was creative, you could send a Creativity MB. A story of someone who saves another's life could receive an Angel MB....you get the idea )
That member will be by to review one of YOUR items and YOU will receive a merit badge from them, too!!
Please be willing to review the player you are matched with and send their Merit Badge before June 15th! This is a busy time of year, but I know we can all find the time to offer one review to a WDC friend!
