  • #1
    Congratulations to Lukasz Kacznski and Pedro Pedrosa



    THE RAFFLE IS NOW CLOSED

    *DiabloFans is not affiliated with this contest and is being held solely by my brother and myself.

    Update: We have surpassed our $250 donation mark. We have added a second copy of Diablo III Collector's Edition. This means that there will now be two winners.



    Hello DiabloFans, I would like to share with you an opportunity to enjoy the game you love and give back. My brother and I are generously offering up one Collector's Edition Diablo III as a prize for a charity raffle. All donations will go to Cambodian Children's Fund, an organization that helps children in Cambodia.

    How it Works
    Raffle tickets will be given for a $1 donation. Donations for the raffle will be sent via paypal. For every dollar you donate, you will be entered into the raffle for a chance to win the CE Diablo III. It's that simple.

    The Charity

    Cambodian Children's Fund
    Cambodian Children’s Fund is a charity that brings healthcare, education, shelter and healing to some 1,200 Cambodian children who are from some of the poorest communities in Cambodia. It was founded in 2004 by former film executive Scott Neeson. His vision for these children is simple yet powerful, through the chance given to a single child to have a clean safe place to sleep, to be well fed and cared for and to be exposed to education all while keeping the child within it’s own community still closely connected to his or her family a new path has been made for that child, one where they stay connected to their loved ones and their home, while carrying the tools to grow into people who could one day change the circumstances of their country.

    Hi everyone..

    I would first like to thank my brother.

    Second, I would like to thank everyone who donates to this Charity that my wife and I find inspiring.




    Pictures will be added for verification, and given my brother's value here, please donate without worry.. Let us celebrate in supporting a great cause, and have fun getting a chance at a great prize.

    Thank You

    That's pretty cool, will donate tomorrow more than likely.

    I hope that you don't take offense, but I really don't trust anyone anymore after having been burned by people whom I thought I could trust many times in the past. Is there some way we'll be able to see in a verifiable way how much money was donated and that it did, indeed, go to the charity? It sounds like a good cause, and I'd be happy to donate something if you have a way to do this.

    In fact, maybe it would be better just to have people donate to the actual charity directly and then present proof of payment to you as that gets you out of the direct line of cash and thus removes any doubt.
    ...and if you disagree with me, you're probably <insert random ad hominem attack here>.

    We will still be accepting donations in the way mentioned. I am sorry for any past problems you may have had. If we can verify a way that money was donated directly to the site, we may be able to accept that as entries into the raffle.

    We will be posting updates of the donations collected, along with SS to help validate the funds. We can also hopefully show validation of the donation to the organization. I will be updating this regularly.

    Other than that, all I can offer is my word. I am a reputable member of this community and of Curse and would not dare to jeopardize that. This is primarily just a chance for people to get what they want as well as help out a a good cause.

    ^ Hi,

    well, I am sorry you can not sit and have tea with me.. your in NC. haha.

    yes, verification will be made in several ways..

    -screenshot of paypal account funds.
    -screenshot of payment to CCF.
    -hopefully the winner will take a picture for everyone to see.


    Please everyone remember, this is for Charity. I do not need money in any way shape or form. This is for people to help donate to a place, if you look into ( also they have a documentary about them ) is such a good cause, and full of Genuine Character.

    Thanks guys. And I do believe that you are on the up-and-up. :) I'm just following Reagan's advice -- trust, but verify.

    P.S. I hate tea. :D Maybe coffee, or better yet, Coke Zero. Or better still, Kahlua. :cheers:

    Thanks for the donations so far guys. We are at $26 so far. We are hoping to raise a lot more. Remember, if we break $250 we will add a second winner who will win their own copy of CE D3.

    is this US only?
  • #14
    can we donate, for example, $10 and get 10 tickets, or do we have to make 10 seperate $1 donations to get 10 tickets?

    edit: and how are you going to draw the tickets? are you going to use an online dice service?

    no. As long as your PayPal is able to send US dollars you are okay

    For every dollar you donate you will be given a separate ticket so if you donate $10 you'll get 10 tickets entered. And yes I will be using a random number generator. First to generate the order of the people and then to generate the number of the winner.
