    Default King to personalize IT Gift Edition For Grand Prize Winner

    Right now less than 20 unique individuals qualify for the drawing-and Merlin1958 already has the max 10 entries.
    I suggest you donate via the Paypal widget atop the forum page.
    Actual announcement thread:
    http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/...ven-Foundation

    Stephen King has kindly agreed to personalize one of his books to our Grand Prize Winner!**

    Paypal donations must be noted as a “Gift” so that Paypal does not take a commission.
    The Paypal address is Zoidsmith@aol.com.

    Checks must be made out to Jerome Smith (Please don’t make them out to The Haven Foundation as I will have to forward them and they won’t count towards our fund-raising total) and mailed to:

    The Haven Foundation Fundraiser
    C/O Jerome Smith
    PM me for address

    Check out last years Grand Prize here:

    It should be atop the forum home page:

    Good question. I used to live for Roseanne Barr and i am completely computer illiterate, so my wife signed me up and stuck that as my sign in name. I went to 2 tapeings of her show and used to live to meet her and then i passed that obsession back onto Stephen King, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars.

    I was just kidding of course, and referring to one of your recent posts. It would be kind of funny though, if the winner would have SK personalize a book to his 'screen name'.

    I really like the idea of personizing to a screen name as well! I have been pondering the question since you asked! I wish you all could of gone to the UMASS event. The faculty meet and greet was amazing. He had about 20-30 people in the room He was personalizing books and talking to people and it was just amazing. No cattle line, no rushing, JUST Amazing.

    I don't believe the choice of book is the winner's.

    Brice, as far as I know you are correct. It would be a book of 'Tdt.Org" to choose. (liability issues), but would be personalized to you individually!!! Your personal input will be considered. but the choice is not guaranteed. Right, RF?

    Nevertheless, get your entries in now!!!! $10 to the HF Widget or buy an item on auction. Max is 10 entries into the "drawing". Good Luck folks!!!!

    Just a reminder that we are less than 5 weeks from this year's fundraiser ending.
    Someone (likely here from the site) is going to be very very happy.

    Any person who donates $10 in cash or auction donation (donating an item) is eligible. Not every donor is a "regular" member of Calvin's Corner. Some donors are members who frequent other areas of the site. Some (few) donors donate as "Guests". I know their email from the Paypal info.
    The last couple of years the winners were very familiar to the CC community, but that hasn't always been the case.

    I donated two UK hardcovers to Bill (I paid for shipping them to the US too) - I think he sold them for a modest amount and transferred the funds to the Haven PP account. I also won the Joe Hill ARC. Does this make me eligible at all, or do I also need to donate?

    Not whining, just curious

    I think I'm in for two entries (donated a book that was sold, and donated via widget) but my fairy billmother sent me an amazing gift that I think was kinda to say thanks for donating. I'll be donating again via the widget for sure.

    You donated The Twelve ARC that sold for $54.73 and you made a $10 PP donation.
    That equals 6 entries.
