Hey Everybody,

In the charitable spirit of the band, 10C, and the many great people making a positive impact around here, I'm pleased to announce another giveaway! Enter here for your chance to win a Pearl Jam-Seattle poster by MAXX242, MUNK ONE, and Jeff Soto!!! A runner up will receive a sealed, limited edition, white vinyl copy of Backspacer. Both items are genuine, shipping will be free, and all international enteries are welcome.


To enter, all you have to do is:

1. Make a $20 or more donation to ANY charitable organization that you see fit between NOW and 12am central time May 4, 2013...

2. Post the name of the organization on THIS thread (one donation per post)...

3. Be able to provide credible proof (receipt, link.. etc) of donation(s) made between NOW and 12am central time May 4, 2013.

Here's how it will work: Each post/donation will be numbered by me. On May 4, 2013, all numbers will go into a hat (or other suitable receptacle). Winners will be drawn. I will contact the winners via pm to establish proof of donation and shipping address, and then announce the winners on this thread. Please read the rules to avoid disqualification...

Rules:

1. One post per $20 or more charitable donation made between NOW and 12am central time May 4, 2013. Multiple entries are welcome, but each individual post/entry MUST be representative of an individual donation (winner MUST account for ALL of his or her donations posted on this thread).

2. Posts MUST be made on THIS thread, and MUST include the name of the charitable organization that you donated to. Please DO NOT post any $ amounts, receipts, or personal info on this thread. If you'd like to shine a little light on the organization(s) that you choose, that's totally cool.

3. The winners MUST be able to provide credible proof of donation(s) made between NOW and 12am central time May 4, 2013. I will contact the winners after the drawing to establish proof of said donation(s).

4. DO NOT pm your entry. Again, posts must be made on THIS thread.

5. Any breach of the rules will result in disqualification, and an alternate winner being drawn.

Thank you for reading, thank you for donating, and thank you for helping to make things better for others... Cheers and GOOD LUCK!!!

    Good lord 3Days, you are the best fan ever.
    For those that don't know, Josh has been more than generous giving away his treasured PJ items to encourage the rest of us to "heal the world" and make good for others.

    With that said, for anyone wanting either or both of these items, please check back in Lost Dogs often and frequently as I am going to keep the good PJ Karma going and sell these off and donate these items to further help others. Kind of keep the message Josh is sending going as well as the good healing energy across this world that he created with his amazing generosity...
