Most of you are now aware of the The Ultrafun: Halo Forever! (For a day)
event that is being run by staff members from TrueAchievements. The staff members have been split into two teams, Red & Blue, and will be playing the four-player co-op campaigns of Halo 3
, Halo 3: ODST
, and Halo: Reach
on Legendary difficulty for 24 straight hours. Why? Because they are raising money for Child's Play
, a charity that provides video games, toys, and books to children who are ill in hospital.
Several of you have already donated to this worthy cause, and the current total has smashed through the first four milestones. As a thank you for your donations, the staff have had a whip around and will be giving out prizes after the event has finished. Bear in mind that the competition drawing will be after they've gone to bed too, so the draw will take place during the day after the event has finished.

All members who donate $10 will be eligible for all of the prize draws - this includes all of the people who have donated so far! All that we ask is that you include your gamertag, and preferably your region, with your donation, and your name will be entered into the hat. If you have already donated and have forgotten to include your gamertag or haven't included your region, don't panic! All you have to do is send your Paypal address and region in a PM to Jayour
, and he will be able match you up to your donation.
As an extra thank you to those people who donate before the start of the event, the staff will be holding a prize draw before they begin playing. The prize will be a TA Pro account for 12 months (not included in the above prize list). If the winner already has a Pro account, the 12 months will be added on to the duration of their current membership. You have until 8am EST / 1PM BST on July 2nd to donate and be eligible for this early draw.
A donation of $10 will earn you one entry in the prize draw, and each $10 amount donated afterwards will earn you another entry. Early donators will be entered into both draws automatically, and the winner of the early draw will still be eligible for a prize from the main draw. However, once you have won a prize in the main draw, you will not be entered to win a second prize (even if you have donated more than $10) so that it is kept fair for everybody.
For those of you who are wanting to donate and haven't done so yet, here is the ChipIn page
; ChipIn works with PayPal accounts. Those of you who haven't got a Paypal account can donate using a debit or credit card as a Paypal Guest. Donators who use a currency other than dollars will see that the dollar amounts will be converted by Paypal into your native currencies so that you can see exactly how much you have donated.
Thank you once again for your generosity!
