Okay I’m a bit late in bringing this up but there’s still plenty of time left. Sonic Relief as you should all know by now is a Sonic fan run fund raiser in aid of comic relief which helps children in Africa a worthy cause. Well it’s probably best that I let Doctor MK explain from the SSMB explain in his own words.
Sonic Relief is back at last for its third and final year of fundraising antics! Following the success of the previous two campaigns, Sonic Relief 2011 aims to be bigger and better than ever so as to make it a swansong to remember. Our target for this year is £500+ as it would mean over the three years of Sonic Relief we will have raised over £1,000 for charity – quite the achievement to bow out on! That’s not to say we don’t want to reach for the stars though… let’s give the Sonic Marathon a run for its money if we can, and regain our crown as the most successful Sonic fundraiser!
Show off your creative talents in aid of a good cause! Simply create your own piece of humorous Sonic fan art/music/video/etc (the possibilities are endless!) and every one we receive will go towards raising money.
You can either post your entries in this designated topic on SSMB or alternatively e-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org – the best entries will be in with a chance of winning some goodies! (prizes yet to be revealed)
The theme for entries this year returns to “something funny”, but we’d love to see some entries that incorporate our new Blue Noses to help promote the campaign. So once you’ve made your masterpiece and entered, share it with the world and help to spread the Sonic Relief love across the interweb!
A different kind of entry we will also accept this year comes under the heading of ‘Sonic Relief DIY’, for which we want to see you going out into the big wide world and doing your own spot of Sonic fundraising! Have a sponsored day in blue, participate in a fun run dressed as our favourite ‘hog, make a calendar with your friends, literally anything you can think of – and then pass the proceeds onto us! Simples! Details (preferably with some photographic evidence) of your efforts should be posted in this here topic and the money raised donated via our JustGiving page.
THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES WILL BE FRIDAY 18TH MARCH 2011.
Donations are not compulsory alongside entries this year, however they are obviously encouraged if you have money to give.
Want to do your bit to help but don’t necessarily fancy having to make an entry, or want to accompany your entry with a donation? Then we’ve got you covered! Simply head on over to www.justgiving.com/sonicreliefuk and you can pledge as much as you want to our cause – and all the money goes straight to the charity! You’ll need a credit/debit card to use JustGiving, but it’s simple and safe!
THE DEADLINE FOR DONATIONS WILL BE FRIDAY 18TH MARCH 2011.
So get donating, it’s all for a good cause!
And don’t forget Songs for Sonic 2 as well ^_^ The Official charity album, full of all-new music by myself and Mr. Stream
