New!! Charity Fundraiser System!!

For years now we've been growing our games and community into something special. We never realised when we started how much good we would do for newbie Second Life players and the community as a whole. Our community are really amazing people!!

Now though we need to start doing more. Not just in Second Life, but actually making a difference out there in the real world! 

Starting today we're launching our new CHARITY FUNDRAISER SYSTEM!!

HOW IT WORKS

Any player can visit our settings page and set their charity donation percentage. This will then be donated from their incoming earnings in the Gold Hunt only. Later we'll be adding other games such as the Fish Hunt. Don't worry though - the default setting is 0% and this will always be an opt-in system!

To show how much we appreciate your support we've created a special ranking for top charity donors. Become the officially most charitable resident of Second Life!!

WHERE WILL YOU BE DONATING THE PROCEEDS?

To start with we'll be setting a 50,000L$ donation target to Hope for Paws, but we hope to maybe increase this target a little bit if we get enough support!

We'll set a donation target for each charity we decide to support. Once we reach that target we'll make a donation from the SecondAds paypal account and post a screenshot of the transaction as evidence.

Then we'll set a new target and a new charity, possibly chosen by our players!

Can we add an option to donate any amount we'd like (in the same way people can donate to their clans) for this charity event program in addition to the % option? Was thinking there are maybe some that don't hunt as much as others, but would like to contribute toward the team goal. Thanks in advance for considering the idea!

Yes, we might add that later - a very good suggestion.

I believe the easiest thing would be to let people pay into their GT account and then make a donation from their GT account. Or alternatively we could make a special chairty donation object.

First thing will be to extend this system to fishing in the coming days I think. That will increase the donations coming in daily.

I am very excited about the potential of this system actually. I think over time we'll be able to raise thousands of USD for worthy small charities!! This is my preference actually because I feel smaller charities are less likely to be wasteful and more good can be done. Happy to hear anyone else's views though. smiley

I absolutely love this! I may not be on a lot, but 100% of my gold hunting earnings will be going to this. I love animals! Thank you for developing this, I think it's a great thing!! And for all who thinks I was gone and dead, "BOO!"

1st charity organization we've chosen is Hope For Paws (animal rescue) because even with smaller fundraising we can make a small difference in the real world for abbandoned pet. A small difference in real world enabled by something happening in a virtual world.

Altough not everyone will decide to contribute to this charity organization through playing our games I have a good feeling that just enough people will. Knowing that a helpless animal somewhere there in a world will be taken a good care of and become a happy one makes it totally worth the effort of doing this.
