Hellow FDP DA watchers - Lazlo here - Just updating the official DA with a fun little event we're running in the lead up to Sakuracon. The group cosplay this year is going to be awesome, but the character I'll be doing requires a certain lack of hair and thus I thought I'd turn the removal of my hair into a small fundraiser for the charity "child's play". Here's how it's going to work...
I've asked every member of FDP to submit a design of what they would shave into my head if given the chance. Whoever gets the most votes will do so in a video we will make the weekend before the convention. Here are each group member's ideas...
has chosen "A likeness of himself" and will attempt to shave it into my head if he wins.
has chosen an arrow similar to Aang's from Avatar: The last airbender
has chosen The Batman Symbol
has chosen A " ! " mark as seen above guard's heads when they are alerted to snake's presence in the Metal Gear Solid series
has chosen a road - like Mr. T but with a dotted line.
has chosen a checkered spike design
has chosen a double mohawk... perhaps like a double rainbow?
To vote, reply to this news article with who you want to vote for. If you're feeling very generous, a donation to childsplay can be made and for each dollar donated you will get 2 votes. a $5 donation would get 10 bonus votes, a $100 donation would get 200 etc. Since there is lots of fundraising going on for Japan and other charities at the moment I decided to make it a bonus not a requirement for the contest. Below are some FAQ's
How can you donate?
and use their paypal link, or text GAMERS to 50555 to donate $5. If you donate via text message, just take a picture of the text message or screencapture if you're on iphone.
Why Child's Play?
I chose child's play because I when I was younger I had to spend a week in hospital and it was veeeery boring. Thankfully the vancouver children's hospital had videos and games available so I could pass the time faster. My week in hospital would have really been bad without them and I think it's important that kids who need to be in hospital have something to entertain themselves with.
I love them all can i vote for everyone?
While that's really awesome you do need to vote for ONE entry and not all of them. Multiple votes won't be counted.
How and Where do I upload a proof of donation picture?
Use printscreen / snipping tool / a camera to get the image somehow. If you need somewhere to upload it, use www.imgur.com - it's free and easy to put something up there. Then add the link to your reply.
I'd like to donate but I don't have a credit card
You don't need a credit card to donate. Just text GAMERS to 50555 to donate $5 with your cell phone.
