Charity, Contest, & CoffeeWithGames - Notes
Okay, so here are some notes about things happening.
1) First, Knuckles Sonic8, who comments here on CWG some, also runs his own video game related site, WiiLoveIt.com.
Today, Saturday, WiiLoveIt.com is partcipating in an Extra Life charity event, which is a cause setup to raise money for children via donations, in which the participants play video games for 24 straight hours...or at least 24 hours total for the event.
You can read/see more about WiiLoveIt's participation with the Extra Life charity event HERE, http://www.wiiloveit.com/blog/extralifeeventupdate; and you can read more about Extra Life HERE, and if you feel like donating to WiiLoveIt's cause, 100% of the proceeds go to the foundation, you can do so HERE: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&eventID=501&participantID=25045.
2) Jeremy, who won my contest/giveaway of two years' worth of coffee, also has his own site he helps out with, NintendoFuse.com. He wanted me to help spread the word that they are doing a contest/giveaway of some great Wii and 3DS games: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3D Land, and Mario Kart 7. You can read about how to enter the contest HERE, http://forums.wiinintendo.net/viewtopic.php?f=164&t=9223.
3) Just a quick couple of site notes now. Jeremy has received the first package of coffee I mailed out last week, and he wrote about it HERE. Second, I have started sending out the "Reader Point" awards for the first year, but I have not received confirmation that the first package arrived yet...which has me a little concerned, because I mailed it the same day as the other package, which only took two days to arrive. So, if you're reading this, and you received a package, if you can send me a confirmation email letting me know you got it, I would greatly appreciate it. Other "Reader Points" awards will be mailed, with another package being mailed this coming week; so just be keeping an eye out if you placed first any month. This is all for now, I'll have another "site notes" post shortly.
