Default Pink Day in La 2012

Hello Everyone!

It is that wonderful time of year again when we gather together ingame and get in touch with our Pink Sides! ( For a great cause!)

Pink Day in La will not only be in Guild Wars 1 this year---but Guild Wars 2, Rift, League of Legends and Firefall as well!

However-- we can't forget where Pink Day began and that is in the Guild Wars community.

Here are the details for this year:


5 years ago a group of gamers got together and decided that wearing Pink in game was a great way to support, remember and create awareness about Breast Cancer Research- Fast Forward to today- We believe that wearing Pink can do all these things AND help to find a cure, with your help! Gamers love missions and quests - so here is your mission: Help us create awareness about all types of Cancer and help us fight to find a cure!


OCTOBER 20th - 12pm- 6pm Central Time (-6 GMT)

Donations can be made here:


Please include your IGN (In-Game Name) with your donation if you are contributing. This will be helpful for us when it comes to the prize drawing list. All people who donate will have a set of prizes that they have a chance to win for contributing! What you need to do:

*Multiple donations of more than $10 are only counted as one entry for the raffle.

** If you donated to the team page rather than the Pink Day page, DON'T FRET. You can still e-mail a number in and it still goes to the Canadian Cancer Society!

Post your IGN along with your real name (optional) when donating. (IF you do not play Guild Wars/Guild Wars 2, make sure your name is included as some of the prizes are NOT in-game items )

E-mail [email protected] with a number from 1-1000. If duplicate numbers are chosen, we will keep picking prizes from the list until we move on to the next number selected! *

If you are selected as a winner, you will be contacted via the e-mail used to select your number. If the prize needs to be mailed to your home, you will need to, at this time, provide your address.

I have a bunch of GW1 crap that I'd like to see given away on behalf of Guru, if that's possible (few stacks of ectos, stack of arms, etc.). However, I'm not around much, so we'll have to set a time to meet up. Find me in gaaaaaaame: Jennbear (GW2)
