Hello everyone, this is your chance to win the few remaining adorable and soft Official phpBB Plush Bears ( )!

Only 70-ish were ever made and there are 8 up for grabs! The money raised will be donated in full to the Disasters Emergency Committee whom are currently assisting the Indian Ocean Earthquake & Tsunami aftermath. Their member charities include:

* ActionAid
* CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development)
* Care International
* Christian Aid
* Concern
* Help the Aged
* Merlin * Oxfam * Red Cross * Tear Fund * Save the Children * World Vision Distribution of the prizes are as follows: A) 3 allocated as prizes for the "Caption Competition" (See picture of the bear top left) B) 2 allocated as prizes for the "Highest 2 Donations" C) 3 allocated as prized for the "Random Draw" Important: £1 is the minimum amount to be donated if you wish to be eligible for the 3 competitions, though obviously the more the better! Do leave a valid email address so that the confirmation email, which includes my contact email will be delivered to you. Once you get the confirmation email, please send an email to the email address within so that I can contact you in future should you win, allowing me to send out your prize. I will post the bears to anywhere covered by Royal Mail, which is most of the world and I'll pay for postal costs out of my own pocket. The rules for each part are: Caption Competition =============== * Please keep the captions clean! Nothing which would be allowed before 9pm on TV or you wouldn't say infront of young children and/or your elderly parents is allowed. * When you make your donation, your caption for entry will be what you enter for your comment. * All submitted captions will be copyright of phpBB, with some rights reserved as per this "Creative Commons" Deed ( ) * If you wish to add a comment as well, then please add it _below_ your entry and seperate the two parts of text with _3 equal signs_, eg: '===' ... This will help seperate what is your entry and what is your comment. Highest 2 Donations =============== * Only the amount donated _excluding_ "Gift Aid" will be used for finding the 2 highest donors. This is to keep things fair as not all of us are UK taxpayers. Random Draw ========== * The remaining 3 bears will be randomly given to those that haven't already won... simple. If you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you if you claim "Gift Aid", so don't forget! So go on! Send in your donation and entry now! Who are phpBB? ============ phpBB ( ) are a group of individuals based internationally who believe in Open Source software. The project has been stable since its creation in June 2000 without changes in licensing, leadership or corporate associations.
