Chasters Power for #CharityTuesday… Again

Chasters Power for #CharityTuesday… Again

[SEE RESULTS BELOW - CHARICE WINS AGAIN! - AND DETAILS FOR WINNING A NETBOOK] Okay, folks, you came out in force last week for #CharityTuesday and we can do it again TODAY!  We have a little twist to the contest. Not only can we win $1000 for Operation Smile, but we can also win in the weekly contest for a Netbook that goes to the fruitcake earning the most points for the week.  However, Charice is not eligible to win a personal prize because, according to the eligibility rules, she is not 18 years old and she is not a legal resident of the United States.  (This was confirmed with PayPal and Operation Smile).

Soooo, to make a long story short, Charice has given her blessing for a Chaster to GO FOR IT and win the Netbook for our efforts in putting Operation Smile on top during this whole Fruitcake Campaign. The credit goes to all of you for donating and regifting like crazy since this contest began. For today’s #CharityTuesday and the rest of this weekly contest till midnight, December 28th, the Charicemania team has generously voted to promote my fruitcake to win the weekly Netbook. I LOVE my team, thank you! Hope you’ll all support me as well.

Go Go Go Chasters for #CharityTuesday. As of noon today, we are in FIRST PLACE with $325 donated, but the runner up is a close $25 behind. The fruitcake with the most $$ donations today wins an additional $1000 for Operation Smile.

The #Charity Tuesday Challenge Final Results

Congratulations, Chasters, you did it again! For the second week in a row, Chasters show their power by winning decisively once again for the first place $1000 prize for Operation Smile and Charice.  Give yourselves a pat on the back… pat pat.

Please continue to donate/regift

Charice tweeted yesterday >>> click here to support Eve’s fruitcake! I appreciate your support as well by donating and/or regifting to my fruitcake to win the weekly Netbook prize. I’m currently at no. 6 on “This Week’s” top fruitcake list and need just 4-5,000 more points to win it.

Remember, this does not hurt Charice’s fruitcake at all because she has 63,000 points, an astounding 21,000 points ahead of the next runner-up. It doesn’t hurt Operation Smile either because ALL of the fruitcake points and donations are added together toward winning the $20,000 prize. We are well on our way to winning it!

This weekly prize period ends on December 28th, and one more Netbook will be awarded for the week ending January 4, 2010, for the fruitcake that earns the most points during that weekly period. Charice is not eligible to win a personal prize for herself, so she would be glad to see a Chaster win it for both weeks and win points for Operation Smile at the same time.

Thank you for your support. Chasters are the best team to have in your corner, as we saw again yesterday with the win for #CharityTuesday! Please Comment below if you have any questions about the contest.

Message from Operation Smile

Hey all,

3482 Chasters Power for #CharityTuesday... AgainWe’re participating in another PayPal #CharityTuesday challenge on Twitter today and we’re hoping to enlist the support of anyone and everyone you may know in your elite circles, particularly celebs and donors with a big social media presence. The CharityTuesday Challenge ends at midnight tonight and the charity with the most donations wins $1,000. Operation Smile won the $1K last week with the help of Vonnie pinging some donors and Charice’s fans getting the word out to people online.

Here’s how you can help – Please contact folks to tweet and donate to Operation Smile fruitcakes on the PayPal website, Regift the Fruitcake.  More specifically, our new Smile Ambassador Charice has the top Fruitcake of all time and has already raised $2,795 for OpSmile. So if our Smile Ambassadors or donors would like to support Charice’s fruitcake with a donation, please direct them here: https://www.paypal-regiftthefruitcake.com/profile/36979/2246

We’ve already fallen behind to 4th place and need the help of donors and celebs to get the word out. I’ll be tweeting to our Smile Ambassadors to hopefully get them engaged and at least RT my tweet.

I appreciate any help you can offer today in helping us win $1,000 on Twitter!

Thanks,

Kristi
Operation Smile

Once again, you’ll be able to check out the leaderboard rankings, starting at 12 AM PST on Tuesday on the Regift the fruitcake <https://www.paypal-regiftthefruitcake.com/>  site. The prizes are $1000 for 1st; $500 for 2nd and $250 for 3rd place, for most funds raised on Tuesday PST. Good luck to everyone!

    It’s a very good sign that Ryan Seacrest has already noticed Charice. Ryan Seacrest is a force to reckon with in the entertainment business and can be a huge help to Charice’s new album. Let’s empress Ryan how we are united in supporting Charice win this charity challenge!

    wow, this is great for both Charice and fellow chasters – your combined forces are undeniable! if this serves as a lead indicator as to support for charice’s debut international album then it does not seem far fetched that it’ll hit in no time at all. As DF would say, it’s GUARANTEED for cha with the enthusiastic support of her fans – the other force to be reckoned. Let the climb continue! Merry Christmas to everyone!

    Wow! Ryan Seacrest supports Charice’s Operation Smile charity. Ellen DeGeneres is the new judge of American Idol. I will not be surprised if Charice will perform “Pyramid’ on American Idol. I can almost see it. I can almost feel it. Charice will rock the world.

    Merry Christmas Chasters!

      wonderful to hear from you, “no longer silent chaster” from Dammam KSA. We encourage everyone to join our Chaster Community here. Where exactly is Dammam KSA? I only discovered Charice when I saw her NTG performance on the Oprah Winfrey show. I clicked on a few more YouTube videos out of curiosity and I was just dumbfounded at her charisma and performance whether before an audience or some of the karaoke videos, always giving her best. ‘MacArthur Park’ karaoke is one of my favorites >> http://bit.ly/3M5dTw It’s scratchy and a really raw video, but she’s obviously having so much fun singing it. And even being so young there, the girl can obviously sing! I love it! How did you discover Charice?

    Awesome!

    Charice is getting all the acknowledgement for this win, Zeidrich, you can be sure of that. How could she not? She is 22,000 points (that’s THOUSANDS) ahead of the runner-up. There is no one that can come anywhere near that lead so you can be sure that Operation Smile will win the $20,000 due in large part to Charice’s fruitcake.

    Keep in mind, also, that it is a team effort. There are 155 total Operation Smile fruitcakes worth another 10,000+ points that are helping to win the Grand Prize. All of the dollars donated and points for every single fruitcake is counted toward the grand prize. Charice has raised $3,485 out of a total $4,920 donations. That’s a substantial chunk. A few hundred that might go to another fruitcake will not take away from her accomplishment. Again, Charice will be acknowledged for the win.

    The netbook contest is a weekly contest. There’s no announcement of these winners and no additional exposure to be had for the winner of the weekly prize, nor negative exposure for Charice. If that is your concern, again it is unfounded.

    Charice cannot win any prizes personally because she is not yet 18 yrs old and does not live in the United States. These are standard contest rules in the U.S. including this contest. She can only participate in the $20K Grand Prize to win ON BEHALF OF Operation Smile. It would take maybe 4-5,000 points for any one chaster to win the weekly netbook in my estimation. With Charice already at 62,000 points, it will not diminish her status as the CHIEF FRUITCAKE.

    Please look at Ryan Seacrest’s home page again. It says “Help Charice Win $20,000 for Operation Smile By Regifting Her Fruitcake.” That’s the big picture and the most important prize that we’re all shooting for.

    about this netbook…. i really think charice exposure >>>> netbook

    if other chasters wins this award, Operationsmile will gonna acknowledge the win on the winner right? w/c is definately not be charice.

    and because ryan seacrest is also supporting charice in this event , he is expecting charice to lead the charge for OS to win , and maybe post it in his blog that charice wins #charitytuesday for OS…but if other chasters wins this event, there will be 0 exposure for charice…. 0% chance that ryanseacrest will gonna congratulate charice for the win…

    I thought we are doing this thing to show the world that charice influence in charities is powerful, that charice helped OS in winning the 20k$ , but this idea is not about charice but for the price :(

    just my 2 cents…

    Thanks grumpq. A gift to the fruitcake is indeed a direct gift to Operation Smile, if that’s what you mean. The campaign has raised $4,620 so far for Operation Smile (of which Charice’s fruitcake contributions are $3,185). We’re on track to win the $20,000 and today’s $1000 bonus.

    8 HOURS LEFT FOR #CHARITY TUESDAY. So far, we are in first place with $900 raised! Give, give, give. Thanks for your support!

    Instead of gifting a tacky tie, a strange sweater, or a frozen fruitcake, isn’t donating to Operation Smile a better gift?

    In lieu of a gift, donate to Operations Smile. It will go a longer way and have more of an impact.
