Come-from-behind Rally to Win the 3rd #CharityTuesday

Come-from-behind Rally to Win the 3rd #CharityTuesday

[Charice sings "Smile" in new Operation Smile video, just added.]
It was sooo exciting in the Chatbox last night as Chasters rallied to come from behind to win the 3rd and final #CharityTuesday for yet another $1,000 bonus to be awarded to Operation Smile.

Congratulations especially to BlueBird for contributing the bulk of the $880 needed to overtake the all-day leader (now second place finisher) in the last photo-finish 30 minutes of the contest. Chasters cheered each other on and put their money where their mouth is by rallying to raise the funds needed and win it! I’m so proud to be a Chaster right now, it’s truly amazing to have witnessed it, not to mention heart-stopping, suspenseful, and oh so exciting.

At 11:30pm, Operation Smile was in second place with $2,280 raised versus the leader at $2,750. Some of us had already thrown in the towel, ready to take the second place prize. But BlueBird rallied Chasters in the chatbox to raise $880 at literally the eleventh hour, contributing $500 of her own money, and winning it for Charice and Operation Smile!

For the third consecutive week, our dedicated, loyal Chasters community came together in a tremendous show of support for Charice in her role as International Youth Ambassador for Operation Smile. Did I say, IT WAS AMAZING! Huge, heartfelt, and deserving THANK YOU’S and APPRECIATION go especially to the gal of the moment, BlueBird, and also to mecela, bosio, noellen, arch, eddie, ozzie, marcus, anonymous chasters and lurkers who donated, and those who cheered on and offered words of encouragement in the chatbox.

Their effort not only won the #CharityTuesday contest for the third straight week, but also achieved and surpassed the $5,000 fundraising goal.  Charice’s fruitcake now has total donations of $5,240 thanks to all of you PLUS an additional $1,000 which Charice has contributed personally to CM and CDiva fruitcakes for the benefit of Operation Smile.

We are on our way to winning $20,000 for Operation Smile, with two days remaining for the contest. So keep on truckin’ – please continue to donate and regift the fruitcake!

Here are some excerpts from the Chatbox about midnight last night and the final results of the #CharityTuesday contest for Tuesday, Dec 29, 2009.

    This is a promise of chasters to Charice when she made her fruitcake for Operation Smile 3 weeks ago. Chasters fulfilled that promise since yesterday, to support her fruitcake and create new smile among others specially to cleft palate victims.

    Chasters have tremendous power and certainly more that I even understood before, and again this was shown for the last 24 hours.

    I was not able to copy the whole chat thread to share with you, but I give special thanks to Bluebird- I know you did this for your sister,; Marcus- nah, I know its my fault that your wallet is empty,, heheh; to grumpq, angel, eddie, camo, justin, irmsmith, bosio, tamasia or jamasia?, ozzie, paul, and to all donors who felt the pressure for the last minutes,. Thank you also to all chasters who motivated our donors, like sandy and others. Hugs to every one.

    Yeah, it was tough yesterday, but I never lost hope, frustration drove me crazy, and yet very happy at the end.

    We can continue our progress as chasters by supporting her next single PYRAMID to be released on January. If you got twitter and its not late to make one, please join us in promoting Pyramid by simply using #Charice as hash tag in every twit and make it as a trending topic, Pleaseeeeeeee,,,, heheh,.. I suggest too, maybe we can use twitter as our temporary chat box on January 1 for 2 hours., What you think guys?.

      oh no, must be an error, banning you, cuz the chatbox is in motion while clicking to ban someone; maybe yours got pressed by accident. Please e-mail to request “unbanning” …so sorry. Glad you could peek in the chat though. Next time you’ll be able to join in the fun! heh heh

    Congratulations to all the Chasters who exhibited unrelenting focus to make sure Charice wins for her charity Operation Smile. I was checking on the chatbox at 11 pm here in LA and you guys were talking about it. I felt that I should’ve contributed as well. One day I will join you guys in the chatbox. Charice is indeed one lucky girl, she has the best fans in the world!

    CORRECTION: We raised $880 in 30min! My mind was racing so it was fuzzy math.

    I tweeted around 11:25pm, we were $470 short were it stood at $2280.
    The final tally was $3160.

    Way to go guys! Big thanks to Bluebird!

    OMG! I felt like watching a suspense movie and the climax was so unpredictable. It was a sudden knockout at the last round, the opponent must have been surprised – wasn’t aware what hit him. It was an exciting CharityTuesday and I’m proud of all the donors who never gave up till the end. Special mention to BlueBird – Wow man, you saved the day!

    Congratulations Charice for this achievement! You are so well-loved!
