That was great.

We have honored the request and NG is now ranked as a "friend" to the ACS (minimum "friend" donation happens to be $250). It really feels good to know our awards are not just helping Flash authors, but are helping others as well! I don't want to put pressure on any future winners, though - you've earned whatever prize money you receive. :)

Oh wow, that was so kind of him. :')

Lets all be friends with cancer!...wait thats not even funny, its good to know that we're friends AGAINST cancer now, maybe I can make a good flash and help fight cancer too. Or maybe by just voting even that'd help.

So is this going to be something held every month? Or will this just be these two months? Or are you just doing it until you feel like not doing it? Not planned? What's happening?

If word of these donations were to get out, people might not prejudge the site
and possibly get more traffic from people who wouldn't normally visit NG
if they heard about things like this.
They might be disgusted and leave in a huff,
but at least they visited.

That's really cool of them.

I also sent out the $100 check for the voter of the month, who is receiving a Newgrounds t-shirt as well. Yay!

It's cool that Interactive Buddy won...
It's cooler that he gave his prize money to cancer research...
It's even cooler that David Firth came fourth for his "Valentines Day Special". That was my favourite one. "so I, I had a wank, and then I left... Oh well, same time next year I guess". Hahaha!

My god!
Money can be given away?!
I thought it was to be hoarded, stolen from others, or burned in the festive manner of lighting a cigar.
But given away?! Unheard of!

The guy is a saint.
At least compared to my money grubbing self.

Based off these winners. You can pretty much guess that most popular( highest score) flash will win. I voted based on um I forgot.

Wow Shock-value respect went through the roof. and he deserves all the e-respect.

Interactive Buddy v.1.01

X-Men:Dark Phoenix Rising

Each of these authors is receiving a prize pack including a certificate of award (complete with embossed gold NG tank seal), a Newgrounds t-shirt and a check for $250.

Congrats again to the winners! In less than two weeks our panel will be deciding the top five contributors for March!

[[[ Hey TOM, as a member and CHAIRPERSON OF LAS VEGAS, NEVADA's AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY, we think its great that that person gave a generous donation. I am an animator as well, and it just makes our chances for fighting cancer easier with a donation even as little yet meaningful all the same as yours. Thank you Tom.

Chris.

That's funny. HAHAHA! Reading down!? Reading past the first post to see if your question's been answered is for pussies. Liljim, you make my belly slosh slightly as I giggle at your antics.

Wow, great job jumping on Jim's back to get another post. Three words to agree with that he said. You didn't even try. Chances are most people will agree with what he said, so letting people know you agree with what he said is pointless and idiotic, especially when you only say three words. Nice job. My hat goes off to you.

I wish my flash sucked a little less or I might get one of these awards sometime.

What happens if you can't get a hold of an author Tom? I'm sure by buds sam bak za is going to get one of the 5 spots, but its very difficult to contact them seeing that they get 1000 emails a day, cant understand english well, and are based in Korea = ]

Do their submissions automatically go to some sort of charity or would you go to the next runner up? (sorry if you have already answered the question)

Its great to see such great artists receiving such great awards! ^_^
It's also really honourable to see that a flash artist would donate their money to a worthy organisation.

Those certificates look awesome- I'd sure love to get my hands on one.
Keep up the excellent work Tom and to the rest of the NG artists :)
