Editor's Note: Here is a thread that should never be forgotten. After the tsunami that killed so many people, and wracked so much havoc, Ted and I came up with an idea to action off ad space on our sites - the winner would receive that space for a year, and 100% of the proceeds to be donated. We raised $111,000 which went to Unicef thanks to Partnerlogic and a gaming community that showed a lot of heart. This was truly a high-point for everyone.

Ted Loh and I have been busy for the past several days trying to get this together. What we are doing is auctioning off a prime banner space on our websites; the highest bidder owns this space for 12 months and 100% of the proceeds go to UNICEF.

I had set this up at eBay the other night through Mission Fish, but within minutes it was shut down and I was banned without explanation. I felt like a bonus abuser at Crystal Palace :D

Still no reason or response from them. I figured that since it was "casino" related, I was marked as an evil eBay dweeb.

So I said the hell with it and set it up here at Casinomeister.

I hope that all forum members will motivate your favorite casinos to participate. I also hope that if you are not bidding on the ad space, that you make a donation to UNICEF anyway.

In my mind, this is a chance for the online gambling industry to show how much they care - and how human they are.

Bryan and I just put up the space - and he's done a good job setting this up despite the hiccups at eBay, who will soon have to answer for what I think was a really poor decision on their behalf.

Like Bryan said, I urge you to contact your favorite casino groups and let them know that this is a chance for them to assist in the effort to provide relief for tsunami victims, and get some long-term benefit back as well.

Good luck to all bidders - and thanks to all the readers for their support.

Aside from gaming, I do one hell of a lot of business with eBay. This morning I've sent an email to anyone and everyone that I conduct eBay business with to advise them of this BS stance that eBay has taken. Congratulations on your combined efforts!!!

This auction is about raising funds for tsunami relief - whoever wins the bid and puts up the money makes no difference to me. It is not an issue of picking and choosing who we will and won't allow to bid.

What he said. Families have been destroyed, villages wiped out. According to CNN "The United Nation's Children Fund (UNICEF) first estimated children made up one-third of the death toll. But Charles J. Lyons, president of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, said that percentage, if anything, might be too low."

I think Ted and I can put our differences aside for 12 months if the highest bidder is someone we don't see eye-to-eye with. This is about helping restoring faith, hope, and basic needs to people that are really hurting right now.

I think it is not simply the gambling industry showing compassion, but the great class and integrity with which CasinoMeister.com is run. Bravo

sirius, i am glad you said it first. Cause i was thinking the same thing, didnt want to seem like a azz.

Why not take all your profits and send it in, instead of giving a rogue casino opouinty to place on two well know watch dog sites.

If a new bee comes and see windows casino on top or crystal palace on top, they think its ok to depoist money.

So all the webmaster should get together and give a good portion of there profits to tsunami.

You webmasters are more than welcome to donate to various relief funds. But since you seem to miss the point - relief is more important at this point than anything else - there's no point in continuing the conversation.

Bethug:

You need to pay attention what's going on. Re-reading my postings in this thread will probably help. Not only re-read them but try to understand what is being said. Okay?

By the way, Sirius had a question; not a statement. There's a big difference between the two.

Perhaps Bethug will tell us what he is doing in this line - other than carping criticism of other people's initiatives?

Crystal Palace have the current high bid - $25,000...
Great!

Let them deposit, then lock them out the next week like they do with anyone who wins in their casino. (just a joke!)

Seriously, lets hope this goes a lot higher. (Come on down Golden Palace! This is not about a piece of toast, just think of the kudos you can get, both from informed parties in this industry but also from potential customers out there and especially think about the lives you will save.
You know you can do it.
If you do you will get my business as well as the majority of people on this forum just for starters. You will also sleep a lot easier in the future)

I have made my humble yearly contribution to Save The Children - Canada. Only this time I doubled it. I feel for all that are in distress, but I must admit that I especially feel for the children.

If anyone that reads this donates a few of their own dollars, I feel that I will have done something helpful.

I get their regular newsletters and one of the most worthy organizations presently giving relief to the tsunami victims, with first in mind the innocent children. But they depend on donations. That's where we come in.

They can be found at: www.savethechildren.org

I forgot to ad 'Kudos to Ted and Bryan' for their initiative.

Time is of the escence at this point to avoid further losses of life.

Again Kudos to all who care - and do a little something.

C'mon people, stop the BS with the "What-Ifs". At this point, if the Devil himself plunks down the highest bid - and pays up - for the good of the needy, I will happily sell my soul.

If you guys don't like it - bid higher!
