Fundraising Raffle
« on: January 21, 2015, 06:54:10 AM »
So, it's that time again.  Our funds to maintain the website and Mumble have run low and I'm doing my semi-annual fundraising drive.  The website hosting is $10.97 per month and Mumble costs us an additional $6.25 a month.  If you'd like to chip in to help cover our costs, you can click the donate button to the left or get in touch with me for an address if you are old-school and anti-paypal.

I did receive one of the 10 year subscriber statues and I'll be raffling that off to people who donate between now and April 1st.  If you win and already have one, I'll bake for you and send you an in-game pet or mount from the Blizzard store and re-roll to find Mr. Orc a good home.

I was a giant nerd and read the PayPal fee information so that I could figure out exactly how much a year would cost.  In retrospect I should have also considered the 6.25% Massachusetts sales tax.

Could someone remind me of the PayPal account email address? I assume it's just Nicole's?

I am probably way overdue for a donation.  I'll have to give my wife a heads up so that she's not shocked by "Nikki Costa" on my AMEX bill.

Folks have been very generous and I really appreciate it.  We are now funded for the next 26 months (March 2017) at our current rate, so stick around!

For our 10th anniversary, I was considering trying to have a bunch of square vinyl car-window stickers with the SV logo made up to send (free) to anyone who wants them.  I'd like to fund that idea with any additional donations we get in the next month or two.  I kind of like the idea of possibly spotting them in the wild.  I also sent out mouse pads to the officers once upon a time ago, but they are much pricier and don't let us play "spot the guildie." (See image below.) Any thoughts about whether that is a good or terrible idea?  Alternate suggestions?

I'd rock a sticker on my truck. Great idea!

I used my Amazon rewards card, points towards guiltless impulse purchases between pulls.
