Streaming... you mean streaming live on Twitch or just being sports announcer on TeamSpeak?

Are we talking about the standard games like EFT, Division2, Warframe and etc or is it the community games like the fun cheap party games after the community meeting?

If standard games, then Division 2 would be very happy to stream gaming and I could put something together just for the raffle.

If not the standard games, is there a list of games that will be played?

As a Captain, is there anything I may do to help out? My first UWS community charity event so not sure what to expect or what I can offer as help or if the rest of us just sit back and watch 😅

Too bad I'm blacklisted from donating blood because of I had heart issues or I'd get that free ticket.

How long will the donation button be live?  And how much time do we have to get that picture submitted?  It's been a while since I've donated blood but when I used to do it regularly, I always had to schedule it in advance.

the button will be active all the way up till the last hour of the live stream event. as far as pictures and when the cut off for those will be, they will be valid till the BEGINNING OF THE STREAM. anything posted after that will not be counted. makes keeping the list up to day easier that way.

by streaming i do mean it will be live streamed on the UWS twich channel by me. the games will really vary based on what everyone is feeling. theres usually party games like jack box along with squad, pubg ect. really just a big grab bag.

Fixed the donation goal, we had two donations and it showed $800+ already that was oddly confusing lol  Now it's showing correctly the two who have donated for it.

Sent in $20, I'll send in more next week prob make it a solid hundo. Always good to contribute to a good cause.

Unfortunately can't give blood since I'm anemic and I guess when ever I've gone in the past they always tell me I'm not able to.

I have another question about the raffle.  The nearest Red Cross donation site from my house is about 100 miles away.  Would any other donation source work, or is it just the Red Cross?

During this Event I'm going to hide the PUBG and Community Box buttons until it's over - tho @ElectroLily if you do host an event for prizes just let me know and we'll enable/deduct as needed.

I also moved the goal to the top (until the event is over) So users can see how close we are to the charity goal.

Yeah that sounds tough having to manage money like that unless it's a big  pay where you don't have to worry about stuff.

He did what?!! Ah nah brah, that aint going to stand fer long brah 😲. I gotta sit on the floor to play games and the only way I can see my keyboard and mouse on the TV tray is to use a mirror above my head!!!

Ya, I think the only thing I have won is a $10 Steam gift card when I really wanted the mobo combo. 😢

Is there a time frame to claim the prizes?  Last raffle, I won and my prize was just given away.  Some basic rules for a contest like this would be nice.
