The season of giving is upon us and what better way to support a good cause than to donate to RF Generation. RF Generation is a free, no advertising or pop-ups, non-profit site in which all database contributions come from our members. Our staff (who are all unpaid) works hard to provide content and to keep information up-to-date and user friendly. However, the costs associated with running this site are not free (...or cheap) and we need YOUR help to keep our servers running through 2015. All donations will go directly to our server account and our goal is to raise $1000 by December 31, 2014, which combined with donations from the previous year, will keep us going through 2015. I will provide updates on the front page throughout the following weeks to help monitor how close we are to obtaining our goal. You can donate by following the link provided here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypal
We ask that you donate any amount you can, if you are able, and this year our generous staff has donated some very nice items to raffle off to donors. An explanation of the raffle rules and descriptions and pictures of the prize lots are below.RAFFLE RULES:
This year's raffle will consist of 6 item lots. For every $10 donated, each member will receive a ticket for the raffle (i.e. if you donate $40, you will receive 4 entries). At the end of the donation drive, 6 names will be randomly drawn from the entries (drawing to be videoed) and winners will be allowed to select the lot of their choosing based on draw order. For instance, the first name drawn will select their lot first, the second name drawn will select their lot second, and so on; the sixth name drawn will receive the final, remaining lot. Participants will only be allowed to win one (1) lot, so if your name is drawn more than once, you retain your highest selection position and another name will be drawn.
**Added Bonus** - ANYONE who donates at least $20 will not only receive two (2) entries for the raffle, but will also receive Episode 0 of the RFGeneration Community Playthrough Wrap-Up. This was the podcast's never-released, pilot episode and includes discussions of Parasite Eve
(PSX) and Kingdom Hearts (PS2).RAFFLE PRIZE LOTS:
