How To Sign Up and Raise Funds For Your Own Hospital:

Select your role as Join a Team and scroll to find the Destructoid Community link. Something like this:
Choose the hospital you want to support. It can be a local or international hospital. I chose some Hospital in Rhode Island because I didn't think anybody would be throwing money their way. Doesn't really matter which hospital, kids around the world need these funds.
Fill out your information and you are now a fundraiser. Good for you.
How will the Raffle work?
For those Dtoiders that leave their Destructoid user name in their donation, you will be entered in to a ticket. Any Dtoider that signs up for a charity that makes $5 or more will get two tickets. The raffle will only start when Destructoid reaches $500. If we fail to, I will return the codes to the people that gifted them. I am also ineligible for any of these codes. I want to do this to reward you all. More importantly, I want to hit that goal, people.
If I get contacted by Microsoft that I've won the 12 month Xbox Live Gold card, then I'll raffle that off separately.
How to enter your username:
Just fill out the message to participant and make sure it's show to everyone. You can still maintain real name anonymity by choosing the "make this donation anonymously" button.

Don't Have Xbox Live Gold to Game With Us?
No worries. Microsoft is giving everyone free access to online this weekend. There will be no excuse for not gaming with your fellow Dtoiders. If you don't feel like putting your name to this, just donate and play with us.
Don't have an Xbox at all?
Doesn't matter. Create a page and get people to donate. This isn't a Charity for Xbox. This is a charity for Kids. Turn this bad boy in to a PS3 or Wii Saturday Night Fights. I'll support it in a main post on Saturday once this kicks off.
Why am I doing this?
Because I want to get as much money I can to help sick kids. I don't care where you send the money just send it to one of the hospitals we are supporting. I'm doing this because we all need to help out. I'm only asking for whatever you can give. $1 suits me just fine. I need to hit $500 for my team. Do anything you can to help the Destructoid Community.
Strapped for Cash?
Just spread the word. I'm asking you personally for a donation, but I'll gladly take some advertising to get people more involved. Tweet it or even Retweet it. Make this a thing.
We also accept PAYPAL so if you are international and have a bit of change in the account, please donate!
Not American and want to help?
This is not limited to American hospitals. Australian, European, and Canadian hospitals are all represented by this organization. Money is converted and donated in American Dollars, but money will still be going directly to these hospitals. So please sign up and help lend international support to this. This is all about children, no matter where they are on the planet.
When do we play?
We will be gaming all Saturday so please join us. If you plan on gaming at all on Saturday, October 1. Sign up and gather donations for a hospital. Donations are live right now and will run until the end of this weekend so I do encourage you to participate.
Already registered and want to join Team Destructoid?
That's great! If you signed up as an individual during registration but would like to join a team now, please email [email][email protected][/email]. Make sure to include your name, email address and the name of the team you would like to join (Destructoid Community).
Don't feel like supporting this?
Support the Humble Bundle right now. Leave your name as Destructoid Community instead of anonymous. All I ask is that you decide to support sick kids this weekend. That's it.
If you do feel like supporting this, just not us, then buy an avatar item. Search for G3 during the event Saturday and buy these shirts. It'll go to the kiddies.
