I'm sorry, the headline of "donation of items" sticky doesn't really explain what I'm thinking... but I wasn't sure what else to put in there!
I've been looking around, and haven't seen this anywhere (except for GG's to donate to GC's) and I was wondering if there is a place for us to go if we'd like to donate some items to for all the wonderful contests and giveaways they do. IF there's not, I think it would be a great thing to have here in WI, as I know I've always wanted to help donate some items, and I know lots of others have wanted to do this, too. Maybe an account could be set up to 'hold' items that are donated for a giveaway/contest (virtual items) or there could be a way for us to donate a plushie with the unused codes, so that they code could then be used in the giveaway? (I know the emailing of codes would not work, because there is no way to confirm it's unused, but if we could send real postal mail of a plusie with the tag, then that tag could be used as a prize).
Maybe this is just wishful thinking on my part, but I would really love to be able to help contribute to WI in this manner. What do you all think?
I like your idea! Donating items would be great because that way it wouldn't just be Justin and Wendy (and maybe some Mods/Admins) giving away their items, it could be WI members "sharing" items! Maybe if you donate an item, you could get a little sign or something next to your name... kind of like the one you get if you donate money to WI (the little "Donor" sign)!
Although it would be a neat idea, it would be hard to progress. Justin and Wendy (or Mods/Admins) would have to add a lot of people to their Kinz Phone, and that can take sometime. Maybe the people that could donate could only be GT's and anyone above that rank.. but then it might be unfair to some people who would want to donate. Hmm, that might take some thinking as to how that would work... but other than that, I think this is a great idea! Rep to you!

OH! And donating plushies without a code is a wonderful idea as well! I would love that!

Yep, funny story, my account happens to be the one that holds priceless donations...LOL! That is a very good idea since they do so much for us. It also would help them create more contests so people who are just starting can get those hard to find items! Rep to you!
Thanks for all the wonderful comments and support. I know that there is an account set up for those to donate to Gift Coaches, but I've only seen the info for this provided once I became a GG. I'm guessing that there are other accounts set up to receive donations, but I've not run across any threads pertaining to them.
I do agree that having a donation account would be a LOT of work, but maybe a trusted mod or admin could be incharge of caring for the account donations, and accepting the friends requests for it. (And I know, they already do soooo much, so this just might not be feasable).
But I'm so happy to hear that there are so many of us that would like to be able to donate to WI and help out like this.

I think that already has this when you can donate money for contests & to keep the site up and running
Hey Rocky... thanks for posting. I know that there is a spot to donate money to the site, but I am question whether or not a spot is set up to donate virtual items (you know, like lavas, or retired holiday items) for WI to use in contests. Something along those lines... I thought it would help prevent the same people from giving away all their goodies, and I know lots of people would love to donate to a good cause. Thanks so much for posting!
