Giveaway - Massive Cancer Fundraiser Giveaway (Multiple prizes available)

My Dolphins Cancer Challenge Fundraising Page

My GoFundMe Page

PROGRESS – $700 RAISED

As many of you may know, I am a cancer survivor so raising money for cancer research is a huge soft spot of mine. I figured I’d combine two things into one; raising money for cancer research and a giveaway, win win for everyone! No, this is not a “free” giveaway since you do need to donate money to the cancer research ride I am taking part in (details below) but none of the money is going to me. 100% of the money raised is going to cancer research and I mean 100%. Everyone who works for the Dolphins Cancer Challenge is under the Miami Dolphins payroll so everything raised goes 100% to cancer research and not paying some executive’s salary!

PLEASE READ THE RULES BELOW IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR THE GIVEAWAY. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN BEING EXCLUDED FROM THIS

Short backstory

I am coming up on 2 years cancer free, I was diagnosed with melanoma when I was 22. Since being done with treatment I have become heavily involved in cancer charity events and this will be my hardest but the most fun. I will be traveling down to Miami to complete the Dolphins Cancer Challenge with you guessed it, the Miami Dolphins. I will be part of Team Buccaneers since my good friend works for them. I am not seeking money to get down to FL, I am only seeking your help to raise as much money for cancer research as possible. I’m not just asking for help with no prize though, that’s where the giveaway comes in

PRIZES

  1. Grand Prize – Custom Titanium with Oil Slick finish 80mW 520nm Laser with AW 17500 batteries
  1. MODDED Crelant 7G2CS dedomed XM-L2 and current bump (ramping mode still works)
  1. Brand new BLF SE-X6 CW – comes in BLF special box with all the accessories
  1. 4x NEW Panasonic 3400mAh NCR18650B
  1. 4’ Custom paracord bullwhip. Body is 4’ and totals ~6’ with fall and cracker. Will come with spare fall and crackers
  1. PBS cube and optics – various mounted optics and PBS cube (mostly for the laser fans)
  1. 6x Sanyo 18650 batteries (2400mAh I believe) with cases & bonus 16340IMR 700 mAh battery
  1. 4× 26650 batteries (matching Trustfire Flames, 1x King Kong, 1x MNKE)
  1. 5x L3 L10 bodies (2x Black & 1x white complete with head, 1x pink & orange both missing heads) (**You wuill get at least 4 bodies. I know I have another complete 1x black & 1x white and just orange body somewhere. When I locate them I will add them to this prize)

I have a few more items I may add depending on the interest of this giveaway (if we reach $1000 raised I will add my ArmyTek Barracuda as prize #2). Prizes will be added as more interest is gained

RULES

Anyone can join but you must follow the rules outlined. You must go to My Dolphins Cancer Challenge Fundraising Page OR My GoFundMe Page donate a minimum of $10 to be eligible to win a prize (each prize is worth more than $10 and I am shipping everything FREE CONUS – international see below, you are not excluded!). FOR EVERY $10 you donate, you will receive one entry (Example: Donate $50 and you will have 5 chances of winning a prize). After you donate, please comment below and then send me a PM with your email address and number of entries you have. If you donated more than $10, please indicate if you want your entry numbers to be consecutive or randomly placed on the participants list. I will be verifying that everyone who claims they donated really does. The list of entries will be in post 2. If you do not send me a PM you will not be added to the list since I have friends, family, co-workers and random people donating to help me out (it’d be impossible to know who everyone is and match up names/emails with usernames).
BTW anyone in the USA, your donation is tax deductible :bigsmile: (I feel obligated to tell you since I went to school for accounting) My goal is to raise $2,500 total before the ride so however much we can raise through this will be GREATLY appreciated!

International users AKA outside of the USA

You all are welcome to join however I do ask that you pitch in half (up to $10) of the shipping cost. I will get a quote for you and let you know so we can split it. I don’t believe anything will cost you more than $20 to ship and if half does come to more than $10, I will only ask you to pay the $10 and I’ll cover the rest.

Drawing

I will draw the winners on December 11th 6:30pm EST (all donations must be in by 6:00p EST December 11th) so that everyone will receive their prizes by Christmas!!!! I will draw in order of the prizes listed (grand prize down so that everyone has a chance at winning the grand prize). Once you win a prize, that winning number will be removed from eligibility (if you have more than one number then your other numbers are still eligible). I will send all the winners a PM to get your address and for international winners to arrange shipping details.

You are welcome to donate and not want a prize. If you do donate and don’t want to win a prize, thank you so much and please comment below so I can give you a shout out and know who you are!

Anyone interested in learning more about the Dolphins Cancer Challenge or wants to take place in it with me, visit Dolphins Cancer Challenge Website

THANKS EVERYONE!!!!

UPDATES

It has been brought to my attention that you can not use paypal to donate. If paypal is your only option, please send me a PM and I can get you my paypal information. You can send me the money and I will make the donation on your behalf (The donation note will include your name so you get credit for helping out). You will still be able to claim your entry spot even if I have to make the donation for you.

Thanks, very much appreciate it. To me, I’d rather give away all the stuff I’ve spent my own money on as long as it is for a good cause!

It has also been brought to my attention that you can not use PayPal to donate. I didnt realize that until now so if you only have paypal or only want to use paypal, please PM me and you can send me the money and I will make the donation on behalf of you and will make a note of it in the donation (you can still claim your entry spot)

All the links have been fixed, had to call customer support to get the DCC page back up. My entire Teams page went down since someone donated while they were doing server maintenance and the system freaked out when there was a $0.00 donation.

$500 raised! Someone WILL win the laser Big Smile

Have you ever wondered why, despite the billions of dollars spent on cancer research over many decades, and the constant promise of a cure which is forever “just around the corner”, cancer continues to increase?

- IT IS A BIG SCAM.

Thats just an 30 year old quoute brought out of its context. But I guess that kind of quotes is great fuel for conspiracy theories.

My dear friend. I have many colleagues (Doctors) who acknowledge that Big Pharma DO NOT promote correct treatment to patients, because simply >Cancer is their main income. You don’t have to eat toxic cocktails and put your head in the microwave. Only dumb people agree to go through such ridiculous treatment.

Do your homework, many legal and official documents are available online to support my so call conspiracy Wink

Ormbett> Don’t be so puerile. Do you know what is the real name of conspiracy? > Simply Buisness plan.
Big Pharma Industry+Government connection. Nothing else.

When people donate “for Cancer” they provide found for more lobbying.

Only frightened kids on youtube like to use “conspiracy theories” :_( in the real world, it’s heavy duty lobbying. Business.

Not nice to read, but reality is harsh.

Thank you for your understanding

Allow me to share my thoughts. Regardless of the possibility of such scams, Livincloud couldn’t be expected to investigate whether the organisation he is willing to donate to is a scammer.

All he does is promoting kindness, which I feel is slowly sapping away from humans. If the organisation receiving the donation turns out to be a scammer, the brains behind that have their own conscience to answer to.

In the same vein, lets continue to encourage such laudable initiative for the common good.

CityCoffee, because you know EXACTLY everything about DCC, right? For you to make that claim about the organization I am trying to raise money for is ABSOLUTE BS. I am normally a really nice, understanding guy but for you to make those claims about something that almost took my life, GO EFF YOURSELF! BTW THIS ISN’T BIG PHARMA (so you might want to do your own research first. ITS A NFL TEAM RAISING MONEY FOR A FOUNDATION THEY FOUNDED AND COMPLETELY FUND OUT OF THEIR OWN PAYROLL!

It has nothing to do with the money raised and no cure. If you honestly believe these cancer centers take money and purposely avoid finding the cure then you are the biggest idiot in the world. Its not about the money! How many researchers do you think have lost someone close to them due to cancer and yeah they totally know how to cure it but don’t since its purely a money grab scam? Well according to your statement that would be NONE aka absolute BS! Everyone has someone close to them touched by cancer in one way or another. If it really was a money grab scam then you’d surely believe that they would find the cure and charge insurance companies a boat load for the medicine., they’d make more money doing it that way. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about and you should just shut your mouth, especially when it comes to bashing on something someone is doing to raise money for cancer that almost took their life! Your “respect” is a backhanded slap to the face and you are the first person who has given “respect” or kind words about what I have faced and I honestly don’t care that you said it due to what you said after.

Not saying all cancer research foundations are like the DCC but if you do ANY research into them you will see that 100% of money raised does go to cancer research. They dont have a payroll, they dont have any expenses, they are purely raising money for research. All the payroll is within the Miami Dolphins. Do you really think the Dolphins would scam anyone like this? Do you know how quickly they’d be kicked out of the NFL? (those last two statements are irrelevant to the point but seriously?)

CityCoffee, if you dont want to donate then dont, idc, but DONT bad mouth an organization you have ZERO knowledge of! There will always be idiots in this world who believe every conspiracy theory online. Heck, I bet you are one of the people who believe 9/11 was an inside job too………Im done with this convo since its absolute rubbish. Im off of here until the drawing since CC has royally pissed me off

Please, I have a family member who passed away last year because of those criminal doctors ! This is the reality. After making some research, we realized that people who have been treated by non-official protocol managed to recover at higher rate than the big pharma way. So, let me tell you, what kills people is the way they believe in modern medicine and ignore all the rest. Sad but true. They eat shit, and nobody tell them WHAT is the real cause of cancer.

I am really sorry to hurt your feeling. Yes, Cancer is related to big money and it ain’t a secret. In fact it is such a big business that those companies who manufacture the protocol need to lobby every years like hell to defend the idea of chemotherapy benefit. The truth is> chemo is a scam! More and more Specialists are laughing at those rubbish, but because they get some serious incentive they keep silent. What should you denounce those who pay you so well?

I bring information that are already well accepted by a majority of the people. Anybody can google “cancer scam” you will find what really is hidden behind “poor cancer stuff”

I don’t care about your center. I am fed-up with EVERY-BODY asking for funds and donation, finally, the only result is :
- Every year > ALWAYS MORE AND MORE CANCER DEATH.

IS THAT LOGIC? So, go blame the ignorant people who believe in bs. Not me.

“Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity”

(I am not rude, I am just realistic)

BTW: I never wrote a single word about 9/11 or criticized the implication of the Mossad in that mess.
So, keep your conspiracies for others.

Has anyone on this thread heard from livinloud? He purchased a bunch of lights from me and I wanted to make sure he got them but haven't heard from him since. He's been offline coinciding with our last communication and I was wondering if everything's ok. Please PM me if you know how I can contact him.

 

Thx!,

Tim
