Giving away a pair of genuine 180SX/240SX fenders - a fundraiser for the LA Food Bank

As some of you might know, I recently received a shipment of brand new 180SX/240SX OEM Nissan fenders that were damaged. And unless you've been living under a rock in a time capsule, you'd know that COVID-19 has impacted a lot of people in very disproportionate ways.

I wish to donate a pair of fenders, and raffle them off. I have already spoken with Mr. Mephistopheles about this and he is okay with me posting this here.

Details:
  • 1 pair (left + right) 180SX/240SX fenders for S13 chassis. Popup headlights. Brand new, but with minor damage on front corner.
  • Winner will be selected at random based on a reply within this thread.
  • Ground shipping from me to you in the continental US is covered by me. I can ship worldwide for an additional fee to be paid by the drawing winner.
  • 100 entries based on first 100 unique replies.
  • Drawing will be done when I hit $2000 on the GoFundMe donation, or 11:59PST Jan 31 2021, whichever is first.
  • Any amount you wish to donate is acceptable, from $0 to $2000.

Pictures in second post.

Donation link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/donations...onal-food-bank


Backstory + details:
Earlier in December 2020, the batch of S13 Silvia and S13 180SX fenders I had on order for a year arrived. I went to pick up my U-Haul rental, but was stuck in a traffic jam of 500+ cars for some reason.

Turns out, that day was the LA Regional Food Bank distribution event in La Puente, CA, next to where I live.

I realize that this pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on some of us, and I wish to do something to help in any way possible. I had put together something similar/fun back in 2005, using the Drift Day Competition 5 as a way of doing a small fundraiser for the Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Katrina. The thread from 2005 is still up: https://zilvia.net/f/showthread.php?t=89802

This time around, I wish to donate all proceeds from this GoFundMe campaign to the LA Regional Food Bank, or if the winner chooses a different food bank I will gladly donate to that one. I am contributing a pair of new but slightly damaged fenders, and also am throwing in free shipping in the continental US.

How to enter:

Just reply to this thread with the minimum message length needed to post a reply. I will document the name(s) entered here, and randomly select a winner once my campaign has met the $2000 goal. Or if there is not enough interest in donating, I will pick a winner after Jan 31 2021.

Obviously, it would be great if every person that enters donates a small amount (of $10-20).. Power in numbers is what makes things like this work, so any amount would be greatly appreciated by those struggling to put food on the table.

Thanks.

Just wanted to confirm that I'm ok with this.

Also wanted to suggest being generous with your donations. Times are tough for many folks, and Alex is making a bad thing (damaged fenders) good by donating them to a good cause.

To make it plain,

All donations are going to charity!

(please exclude this post from entry count)

So I've tried to donate now, twice, but it doesn't seem like its working. I enter my information, click confirm...and then nothing. I checked on my side and I'm not seeing anything being withdrawn. This happen to anyone else?

either way, a reply in the thread constitutes an entry.

An entry is good and all, but I want it to matter. No sense in entering for something if you're not going to back it up. I'll try again tomorrow, if it doesn't work, I'll PM you. I'll mail you money if need be. I've been lucky enough not not miss a day of work through all of this, so I'll help when I can.


EDIT: Got it to go through!

Just donated but, I did initially have a problem when trying to use my American Express. I had to switch to Visa and it worked fine.

nah, this is the whole "no purchase necessary" part of what I'm doing.

if someone wants to anonymously donate the remaining sum to hit $2k, I'll do the raffle tonight for the 7 people so far. that's how serious I am about this, because it's something tangible, something useful, and the true winners are those of us unable to do fun car stuff because their lives have been upended.
