Hello Illy community.  Chosen is undertaking a square-a-thon (similar to a walk-a-thon) etc.  We want to raise money for research and treatment of MS.  Some of our honored Illyriadians are dealing with MS, and so.........for each hour Chosen holds a square, I am going to contribute two dollars to MS charity/research.  
I am only making this public so the people affected know that I/we care, and want to help.  Anyone else may join in and make similar pledges.  
Illy, deservedly so, has a reputation for being different, and having a community as opposed to a bunch of anonymous bully jerks.  so lets pony up, and show support, money and moral, for those in need of a boost.

I will donate a flat amount.  I'd donate per square, but you're going up against some of my Crow Federates, so I can hardly encourage you to get more hours!

Well done Bliss!  Someone dear to me has recently been diagnosed, and I stand with you to fight this disease.

Chosen held a square for a tolal of 90 hours rounded up.  I am proud of how well we did considering we are one of the smallest alliances out there.  I loved the tournament and I look forward to the next.   Not only did we gain some experience and commander levels we showed support to a good cause.  Cheers to all who took part in the tournament and I can't wait for the next opportunity to participate.  Please all get out your cheque books or visa's and make a donation to your local MS Society.

Don't  know what to say about this... seems like a well-intentioned idea - would be nice to see more details about how it worked and exactly what you guys might have raised along with it.

My dad had MS.

it was well intentioned. thank you. i had pledged 2 dollars per hour and kallie says we got to 90 hours so i wrote check for 180 to the National MS society, Kentucky chapter.   I had hoped more people would make similar pledges, but small steps i guess.  maybe next tourney.
