Caldera Donation Drive

Kels astaffo posted Nov 26, 18

Hi all!

Caldera has been incredibly blessed during the 1.13 season. We’ve had great server population count, decent voting results, and amazing donation rates. All of these are thanks to you, our players! Therefore, the server would like to take an opportunity to help others with some of our prosperity. However, we could use your help to pick a cause to donate towards!

I have selected a few causes that I have either heard about personally or donated towards in the past. These charitable organizations have been written below, with a brief description of what they do and any other relevant information I could find about them. On January 1st, the server will make a guaranteed $100 donation out of our extra donation revenue to whichever cause has the majority of the votes. In addition, throughout the month of December 50% of all incoming donations (including subscriptions) will go to our winning cause! This extra money will be in addition to our $100 guaranteed donation. Therefore, if you were already considering donating to Caldera, now would be an awesome time to do so because half of your donation will go to an amazing cause. Of course, if you prefer, you can donate directly to any of the causes listed below, or any causes that are important to you! This is merely the server trying to find an opportunity to give back.

Thank you to all of you who play on Caldera and make it the special place that it is! Please take a moment to read the list of programs below and select the one that seems the best to you.

Please note, because this is a mostly spontaneous idea with little pre-planning from me (Huxley_ gave me the idea just yesterday), this time these are all American-based organizations since they are organizations that I’ve worked with or donated towards, but in the future we may do other donation drives for global charities or relief efforts.

The Leprechaun Foundation:
The Leprechaun Foundation is a nonprofit organization based out of Cleveland, OH. Their mission is to “grant wishes to terminally and chronically ill children”. These wishes can involve material items or toys, trips, meet-and-greets with celebrities, and much more. According to their website, 98 cents of every dollar goes towards their mission of fulfilling wishes for children. All officers, directors, and members of this foundation are volunteers, therefore no donations are used for administrative cost or salaries. While this is a smaller organization, I have had some personal experience with them and the work that they do. If you would like to view their website, you can do so at http://www.leprechaunfoundation.org/01_about.html.

Feeding America:
Feeding America is a nonprofit organization that is known as the “nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization”. They help provide food or monetary assistance to over 60,000 food pantries and meal programs throughout the United States. They also help advocate for legislation that would provide stronger food assistance programs for at-risk groups such as children and seniors. They have a four-star rating (90%+)  on Charity Navigator for both financial spending and accountability and transparency. You can visit their website at https://www.feedingamerica.org/,

Marine Corps Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots is a nonprofit organization that aims to “collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas”. They assist needy families in providing Christmas joy for their young children through at least one special gift at Christmas time. 97% of all incoming donations go directly towards fulfilling the goal of spreading Christmas cheer to less fortunate children. They have a 4-star rating (90%+) for accountability and transparency on Charity Navigator, and a 3-star rating (80%+) for financial spending, with an overall score of 4-stars. You can view their website at https://www.toysfortots.org/Default.aspx.

Voting will be open until December 1st. On December 1st, we will announce the winning charity, and also make a second special announcement regarding donations. If you were considering donating in the next few days, I urge you to wait until December 1st.

Again, thank you to all of you who donate, vote, and play here. You are all truly great.

Please go here to vote!
