I donated a small amount as well, just to help get things started. I'll donate again as soon as I'm better able, but right now, I'm pretty low on cash as it is.

Donated last year so no point in not donating again. I hope we hit the 5000.

I'm in, and am now.
Will hopefully donate some more, but am very broke at the moment. And as I've said, absolutely want to show support here, and of course for Child's Play.

Hey, Rougey, how'd you know what the total was before the bar updated? I was lurking in the chatroom and saw you!

Oh, wait. Was it on the show? I can't get it streaming for some reason.

AAAAA HA HA HA HA HA. The South. I never listened to any live IGC episodes. Your ads are cracking me up. Country music, patriotic statements...hell, I thought that one for a grocery store (or whatever) was a joke ad at first.

I love you guys.

They announced on air. Get in the chatroom and stream the show. Heck, watch via the webcam.

EDIT: up to $450 already

First giveaway is a David Hayter voicemail on your answering machine as Solid Snake. I think they'll give the details soon. I'd give them but I'm not 100% positive what they are, so I don't want to be wrong.

The way they explained it on the air a minute ago, every ten dollars equates to one raffle ticket, which you'll be able to distribute among the items up for raffle as you please. They also said it was cumulative, I believe, so I guess you can donate through-out the drive and get credit for all donations. The prizes are apparently really unique, one of them being a customized answering machine message from David Hayter!

I think I can spare $10 before my Thanksgiving road trip. The rest of my usual donation will have to wait until afterward.
