The Fundfax Fairraiser: Win Cool Stuff, Support a Worthy Cause

The Fundfax Fairraiser
graphic made by ElusiveEagle

Perhaps you remember Marissa, a 19 month old baby girl who was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms when she was a mere two months old. Her stuffed bunny Fairfax travels the world, sharing not only Marissa’s story but also spreading awareness of the serious pediatric epileptic condition that she, and other young children, suffer from. Approximately eight months ago we pulled together for a community project titled Fairfax ‘n’ the Chief in honor of her father (who is a fellow Halo fanatic). Today I’m proud to announce The Fundfax Fairraiser, a very special fundraising effort that will benefit sweet baby Marissa and those that are helping her through this very difficult fight.

The Fundfax Fairraiser gives you, the passionate gamer, a chance to win some absolutely incredible video game-related prizes. For every $1 you donate, you will receive one chance of winning everything from a Kotobukiya Steel Spartan 12” Figure (covered in more Bungie autographs than you could ever begin to count) to an EA Sports Pack to an autographed copy of The Godfather II to one of dozens of games spanning across the various platforms. So, you are interested in trying to win some cool stuff while helping out a worthy cause? Let’s take a gander at the things you just may find yourself the proud owner of when this is all said and done, and then we’ll get down to the nitty gritty details of it all.

State which prize pool you would like your tickets to go towards in the message box. You may divide up your donation however you choose however if you don’t specify, your tickets will automatically be placed in Prize Pool #1. You will receive an email (check your spam box) within 24-48 hours confirming your donation and telling you the numbers of your virtual tickets. (Numbers will be updated daily on the main page.)

      awww shes adorable

  3. LAZR Blade 14 says:

    I wish everyone good luck on this contest; I myself won’t be participating, but I hope that little Marissa (and others like her) can make it through their troubling conditions.

    • bs angel says:

      Kind sentiments are greatly appreciated as well. :)

  4. SPOC says:

    amazing idea. I’ll donate on payday.

  5. John Stvan says:

    Do it for the cause, not for the because.

    I’m so lame it hurts sometimes.

  6. I’ll be searching the couch cushions for change.

  7. Apollo Running says:

    Awesome! I didn’t think you would use the title I randomly came up with =]

    I shall be donating to this more than worthy cause. Also hearts for Marissa <3<3<3<3

    • bs angel says:

      It was you! I couldn’t remember who came up with that, I just remember seeing it in the chat box. I’ve been pondering over the name of the fundraiser for two weeks and that one is just the perfect amount of cute and silly that this thing needed. :)

      • Apollo Running says:

        glad I could help in some way haha

  8. daviper07 says:

    I have no luck when it comes to these types of contests, but this is definitely for a great cause! Gonna go raid the coffers now!

  9. Skelbrute says:

    Great prizes and a great cause! Give whatever you can!

    Thanks ahead of time to all who contributed!

  10. UncleGramps says:

    Wow, awesome job, angel! You managed to score some amazing prizes! I’m sure you’ll raise a ton of money given those great prizes and the very worthy cause. I’ll certainly be buying a bunch of tickets, and I’m sure a bunch of the other folks over at 8-Bit Brigade will as well!

    • bs angel says:

      OMG, I knew I would forget to thank someone! You, and 8BB in general, were invaluable in the organization of this. It took me everything to simply not cut and paste your entire article (especially the rules which I’m sure you saw your heavy influence in!). Thank you so much for all your help and advice. It really made a difference in the finer details of everything. :)

      • UncleGramps says:

        We’re happy to help! You did all the heavy lifting, and it seems like you’ve done an excellent job so far. I can’t wait to see how much you raise and I look forward to watching the drawing!

  11. soulofaqua says:

    Dear Angel I’d like to state that the N64 jewellery bundle…. shows a Dreamcast bundle

    • bs angel says:

      You are totally right. Thanks for the fix!

  12. TheChrisD says:

    Hello, epically beneficial exchange rate :D

  13. SpoonGuard says:

    Looks like the N64 bundle is actually a Dreamcast bundle.

    • bs angel says:

      Just fixed it. Let us never speak of my error again!! ;)

      • soulofaqua says:

        You know that you just killed your image amongst those that still remember the classics and may be still fanatic about them, right? -cough-me-cough-

        • bs angel says:

          Psh. If it were an Atari, there wouldn’t have been any issues! That’s what I grew up on. :)

        • soulofaqua says:

          I’m on my second go through growing up. xD I never had an Atari 2600 or Sega Megadrive but I got both now, the Megadrive more recently than the 2600. Oh and today I bought a replacement for my broken Gameboy Color, it’s Magenta :3 or pink according to my brother. That totals my amount of videogame systems(including handhelds) to 11.

        • DethPwn says:

          And me! My Duck Hunt high score is 313,700 on two ducks!

  14. Captain Spark says:

    Lots of great prizes to win. Lets hope this generates a train load of money for Marissa and her parents.

    Great work on this angel.

  15. Lauren says:

    I’m so happy to have been able to help with a donation for this contest! (I donated the Mario coasters & buttons in Prize Pool #1). I hope you’re able to raise a ton of money for this most excellent cause! I’m also very happy that you were able to get so many prizes to be donated… yay! :) Fantastic work! :)

    • Judy says:

      Thank you from marissas nana and the whole family!

  20. rowboat 000 says:

    Woohoo! Good luck on the raffle, folks. But more importantly, a big thanks to angel for putting this together. I’m pretty stoked to be able to donate to this, but I’m even more excited to get some raffle tickets. These prizes are really amazing.

  21. Das Kalk says:

    I wish I had a credit card…

  22. Mikey Rocks says:

    You could raise so much more money if recon was added to one of the bundles. Everybody would go for that one and then i would have a better chance at the others.

    • tb2571989 says:

      and knowing my luck, I’d get it. I don’t have XBL.

    • Apollo Running says:

      Offering recon will only bring people who want recon and don’t care so much about the cause. “OMg raiconex, heres a doller from my moms credit card i hope i win!” Yea it would probably bring in a ton of money but it wouldn’t really spread awareness. I dunno, just my thoughts.

      • SonofMacPhisto says:

        Bungie Bundle #1? Man… forget Recon!

        (Great work bs, this is awesome.)

        • mendicantbias00 says:

          Seconded!

          Besides, Recon will be available to the masses in 3 months.

    • bs angel says:

      I am extremely grateful to Bungie for donating tangible, autographed Halo 3 collector items that will still have value in three months and beyond. They took a lot of time and effort putting those thing together, and for that I am appreciative. :)

  23. tb2571989 says:

    some awesome schwag and for a great cause…payday tomorrow so I may find myself with some vitural tickets.

    Best of wishes to all involved.

  24. Das Kalk says:

    Recon has sort of lost it’s appeal I think, since it’ll be not so special in about 4 months

  25. Kato says:

    The awesomeness of this is awesome.

  26. AusQB says:

    Done and done. I’m really starting to get a knack for this charity thing.

  27. James says:

    Hang in there girl! you’re in our prayers!

    Yup definately gonna donate once I get funds in my paypal. I’m not even a mother quite yet, just another month, but already I can empathize and imagine how scary it is to have something medically wrong with your child, and the general public is in the dark about it. I hope everything turns out the best for Marissa.

  30. SpaceGhost2K says:

    I donated, and sent you an email.

  31. lethal silver dragon says:

    If I win sell the stuff and keep the money. I will donate as much as I can. every time I can.

    okay just donated some money! Just to let Marissa and her family and friends know: your plan to raise awareness is succeeding I believe! Even here in the Netherlands (a tiny little country in Europe, next to Germany) people are reading this comic and thus about Marissa and her condition. I wish you all the luck in the world, little Marissa!

  38. TTL Venus says:

    To Marissa and her family. Keep the faith.

    My heart goes out you. Keep the donations coming even is small…every little bit helps~

  40. Mister Magoo says:

    I have been advertising this like a crazy fool, angel, but I have run out of places to advertise on. Anyway, I hope that this charity raises a very high amoun of money. Little Marissa and others like her deserve better. :)

  41. All the best to Marissa and her family. Heard about your cause through CAD, and instantly was moved and donated, you’re getting heard around the world and you have my thoughts and best wishes. Chin up, you’ll get through this :)

    From ickle UK, xx

  42. Added in some money to the cause.. Not a lot.. but every little bit helps.

    It’s a shame that this had to be cut down early.

  43. triptup says:

    i hurried thru not realizing it was pst. i did not read completely and would like my dollars to be split between the three prize pools if possible. dont worry if it is to much hassle! i am a doofus!!! here’s to baby marissa’s better health :)

  44. xboxcrazy33 says:

    I donated a couple bucks. Wish it could have been more. My prayers go out to Marissa and her family.

  45. Adam says:

    GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! =((((((
    Last time i checked the contest ended on July 7th! Now when i come to donate it’s been over for 3 days? D=
    That SUCKS =[ I was gonna donate like 50-100$ too DDD=
    Oh well, I hope this brings a hell of a lot of money to the family =] Thanks a LOT Angel for doing this, you are awesome! =D Also, good luck everybody who entered =]

  46. Yeah, believe me, I would have preferred it went until the 7th too.

  47. robbie says:

    when will winners and prizes be announced?

    • bs angel says:

      Soon. I found a site last night that live streams video and is easy to use. I’m in the process of learning all the smaller details about it and then I’ll announce the final date as soon as I have it. I imagine it will be within the next week!

  48. Prizes are listed up there ^.

    BSangel’s still working on the mechanism for announcing- the fundraiser was supposed to go until the 7th, so she was supposed to have a bit more time to work out the technical kinks. Soon, I’d guess, but I don’t know any more than you do.

  49. Kyle says:

    I’m getting excited, the anticipation is horrible! I hope Marissa is okay, this is all for her! I only wish there was more time for the fundraiser so more could be raised!

  50. John says:

    I hope things are looking up for you all. I was just wondering if plans for the draw have been made. I may be soon loosing my apt. and if I win I would hate to see the lot go to a non-gaming fan. Anyhow I hope all is well and look forward to hearing good news. :)

    • bs angel says:

      The winners have already been drawn and emailed. You can scan this tag for all the updates relating to this fundraiser. :)
