I know my last update was way LONG ago, but I have a good reason. Over the course of the past 2 months I have been preparing for a huge fundraiser/giveaway. So let’s start with the fundraiser 5 W’s (Who, What, When, Where, Why) and I’ll move on to the cool stuff I’m giving away later on.
The Goal: Do a fundraiser and a giveaway to benefit 2 organizations to raise as much funds a possible during the Holiday season.
Child’s Play is a non-profit 50(3) Organization that raises funds to donate gaming equipment/software/centers to Children’s Hospitals around the world
IPUL is a also a 50(3) non-profit organization but instead provides services to Parents (with/without kids who have/don’t have disabilities), and providers in the State of Idaho.
In August I received a bunch of signed Halo memorabilia thanks to the crew at 343 Industries and Microsoft. The list of what I am auctioning off and who for I have posted below:

Currently I am a Board member for IPUL, and I am required to do fundraising, but since I’m a gamer and I love Halo I figured I would combine the two and create a huge annual fundraiser. I know that most bidders don’t know about IPUL, so I decided to donate to Child’s Play as well.
How do I do this? Simple. The stuff I am auctioning off in the list above will be 100% donated to the organization I listed it for. So for example: Child’s Play gets a signed by Todd McFarlane set while IPUL gets a signed Xbox 360 wired controller. So is this fair? I think so, because I basically split the gifts down the middle between both non-profits. Don’t want to support IPUL but instead support Child’s Play (or the other way around)? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
BUT WAIT! There is MORE…
I know that most of you may not have a dollar to spare so instead of being left out I am personally donating my non-signed individual issues of the Halo Fall of Reach Series. For doing one or more of five things you can possibly score one of them for your very own collection!
