    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:


    Why?


    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!



    When?


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


    Where?

    Guild Wars 1


    International Districts 1, 2 and 3 of Lion's Arch


    Guild Wars 2

    ** Since GW 2 is so new and Guesting has not be implemented yet- we have come up with a strategy to make sure that everyone can participate to the fullest. We really want people to be able to participate- so out of the the meeting today we have a possible 9 servers that are prepared to be hosted for the actual ingame event. Details are as follows -- so far. Servers and Details are subject to change based on changes over the next month. (Thanks for your patience)


    Remember ~ LA = Lion's Arch

    Hosted Servers = Events will be planned for the server-but other servers are welcome to be Pink in Lion's Arch with their own events based on guild/alliance discretion (Hosts listed in Pink - ? means still confirming)

    ATTENTION ALL DONATORS!



    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 donations@gw-en.com 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'll be there with pink on!

    And that's a fair point, Keleynal. Prostate cancer is just as important but sadly we've missed it's awareness month (September) so perhaps we should make plans to have a Blue Day next September! :D

    Unfortunately, I don't get home until after 6pm central and can usually play starting closer to 9. I'll don some pink duds and traipse through the countryside though.

    Dammit. I'll be driving all day (moving). I probably won't even be done by the time the event's over. And that night I might be partying, since it's my 30th birthday. *ponywahh:

    I really wanted to be involved in it, since my mom is still going through the aftermath of breast cancer. FML.
