    WHY RAID-A-THON?
    My name is Michelle or Shell as my wow friends like to call me, many of you may be wondering why a Raid-a-thon for Cancer Research UK?

    Well back in 2010 my mum was diagnosed with kidney cancer and had to undergo major surgery to remove her kidney. Since then she has had a further operation to treat cancer in her bladder.

    This is the hardest thing I have ever experienced in my life, my mum is my best friend and this news really shook my world!

    I had been thinking for a while how I could get my world of World of Warcraft guild involved. So I came up with an idea how I (with the help of my guild) could combine our love for the game and the guild with raising money for a fantastic cause....... And that is how Carnage Inc Raid-a-thon was born!


    HOW CAN YOU HELP?
    back in 2011 at our very first Raid-a-thon we set out to raise a minimum of £500, we have managed to reach that target in little under two weeks and when on to raise £836 in total (including gift aid)

    And in 2012 we set out to raise £2000 and manages to raise £1890 (including gift aid)

    This year our aim is to raise £2000 and beyond!

    As with previous events and to ensure we get of to a good start all of the guild members taking part will be paying a £5 entry fee as well as encouraging friends and family to sponsor them via this page.

    Now all we need is you help to make sure we raise even more money than last year! So come on guys dig deep.... every penny counts and this really is for a fantastic cause.

    When making a donation please be sure to mention your in-game name and server if relevant, or the name of the friend/relative you are sponsoring also where you heard about Raid-a-thon. This will really help us to keep track of donations.

    All money raised will go directly to Cancer Research UK.

    You can also help us by spreading the word to friends, family and guild mates. By making a post on your guild site, updating your real id, Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CarnageIncGuild, Twitter: https://twitter.com/carnageincguild



    Thanks in advance for your support,
    Shell (Guild Leader of Carnage Inc)

    Bumping this, it is for a good cause, and some nice give away stuff too, pretty sure someone has thrown a high end graphics card into the pot, as well as some free guild hosting from Enjin.

    Should be a laugh, come tune in even if its just for a few mins.

    Another shameless bump, we are all stocking our cupboards and fridges with snacks and beers ready for tomorrow morning.

    All kicks off at 8AM server time (7 am GMT) so come along and help us raise some money for a decent cause!!

    This is part of a legit charity system, so for the moment it's reopened.

    Thanks for the idea hun.

    They only put the players/guilds the mmochamp mods fan boy/love. It should be on the front page, as it's for a good cause and seems well run.

    Our third annual Carnage Inc Raid-a-Thon finished just a few short hours ago at 8am server time. This year was different from any other as we managed to have a full 25man raid group (with standbys) from the very start, numbers only dwindled in the last few hours! To see soo many guild members and fellow gamers raiding for a cause was overwhelming!

    The generosity of fellow gamers raised an amazing £1640 this year (including gift aid). Donations will remain open for a few more weeks, so if you would still like to contribute please head over to our JustGiving page: http://www.justgiving.com/carnageincraidathon

    All that remains to be said is a HUGE thank you. On a personal level this event means a great deal to me. I hope that you will be able to join us again next year for what will be our forth Raid-a-Thon!

    -----------------------------------------------------

    @Fummockelchen & iggie: Front page would have been amazing! Thank you for your kind words.

    @anaxie. You are more than welcome to set up 'Raid-a-Thon' US. I am glad that we were able to inspire you. If you would like a chat pleas e add me on battletag: Shell#2116
