The 2012 GWJ Donation Drive Home Stretch!

We are now a mere five days away from wrapping up the 2012 donation drive! To say we're overwhelmed by your support and consideration this year would be underselling it. If you've been procrastinating, you can consider me your mom yelling up the stairs that you'll miss the bus if you don't get your butt out of bed.

As you know, we've reached our $20,000 stretch goal and we're already hard at work on cranking out our new video features for you. We're very close to the next stretch goal at $25,000 which will net you a special edition Gamers With Jobs magazine! A PDF magazine to be exact because this is the future and we don't want Julian to turn his jaundiced, paper-killing eye on us.

Thanks again for your support and here's to a another great year for GWJ! After the jump you'll see the current (as of late last night) list of donors who are making this year possible.

If you've donated and aren't on this list please email Elysium @ GamersWithJobs.com and make sure he has your full name, forum name, Paypal email and amount donated.

Heeeeeeey sexy donators! Op - op - op - op - Oppa Goodjer style

When is the appropriate time to point fingers and single out siblings that haven't donated?
(man... I am SUCH a tool).

Get this, that Certis guy hasn't even donated! What a shalalm baskur!

Actually, he has. Anything to make Julian write about ponies.

Hooray! Very sad I was not able to throw more money into the pot. Maybe next year!

GWJers are a generous bunch; $20,000 / 440 listed donors is an average of $45.45 per person!

Don't extrapolate too much from this list. This only includes individuals who submitted a forum name with their donation. My sense is that at least 30% of all donors either did not submit a forum name or do not otherwise have a forum name. That's not to take anything away from the generosity we've seen, and the average donation is significantly up from prior years.

Managed to throw some pennies in the jar. Obviously not quite in time to make 'The List' but I'm not panicking yet.

Just received my email today confirming that Paypal made the transaction. Must say I really hope we make it 2,000 more dollars before the end. Would love a magazine with articles about sparkle ponies and "The World Ends With You" by GWJ Staff.

Hopefully, next year, you guys can use your new video skills to do a PBS style video for the donation drive. I would love that!

Come on Goodjer community! A magazine would be so so sweet.

Quite an amazing list! I like this kickstarter-style donation drive rather than prizes.

Oh my, I didn't even bother to look (clearly). The force is strong with sparkle ponies.

I think we have an early favorite for 2013 forum icon upgrade.

RE: Gold car.

They observe that I am rolling. In response, they are hating.

That means giving up the Pillow of Heterosexuality.

[Edit] Oops, had an old page open.

So, after we've donated you will let us go? C'mon man! I'm a Canadian!

Hooray! Congrats again everyone.

$1,600 to go!

Cool. I'm sure there's plenty of room in my schedule to edit a magazine.

Per Wordsmythe - stop with the generosity, you monsters!

yay!
and yay! i'm no longer Goarn!

I'm keeping it in my sig tho.

edit - that i clearly need to fix(ed)

Well, I didn't send an email until today, so count me among the anonymous donors. I may donate again since I get paid in 10 minutes. Gotta get to that magazine!

They are similarly attempting to apprehend me travelling in an unsanitary state.

Under $1k now.

Thou must not use the name of Shalalm Baskur in vain. >:(

Wait?!? You're driving in New Jersey? Here I was guessing Illinois.

Hmm, my name is not on the list, although I did donate, time to write in!
Very curious to see how many people will hold off donating until the last possible day...
