    Charity Plugathon - Help raise £2500 for Children in Need.


    Want to help raise money for Children in Need? Read on.

    As you maybe aware, when you have a product this good at this price you don't need to advertise. It's purely the grapevine that has helped turn The Toy into the biggest brand on Betfair today, and we couldn't have achieved that without the army of happy toy users that continually recommend the product.

    Last year I made a pledge to donate a % of any surplus to a children's charity. Well now, I'm going give the Betfair community a chance to decide just how much goes to charity. Up till last week, I had received in total circa £2750 in donations from the community. As you can see I've already offered up a prize of £250 here, which leaves £2500 up for grabs for Children in Need.

    So welcome to the Geekstoy Children in Need Plugathon!

    For every blogger or site owner that participates in the Plugathon I will donate £25 to Children in Need from that pot. To qualify, you simply need to plug the following between now & 8pm Sunday…

    1. Geeks Toy Children in Need appeal & plugathon.
    2. Geeks Toy Free for 2011.
    3. The release of Version 1.1 with Advanced Charting & Market Overview.
    4. A closing link to The Toy saying “Probably the best Betfair Trading Software in the world!”

    Any blogger / site owner who participates in the plugathon should post a link up on this thread to the article as both recognition of their participation, and to enable me to ascertain the final contribution to Children in need.

    An example plugathon article is shown in the next post.

    Have Fun

    Default If Carlsberg did Children in Need

    Just to let you know that GeeksToy.com are running a charity fundraiser for Children in Need.

    Some excellent prizes up for grabs, including £250 cash and Betfair API subscription worth £2000.

    In addition The Geek is running a charity plugathon, so if you're a sports / Betfair blogger / site owner and want to help raise money for good causes, check this out.

    And finally, a new version of their top end trading product The Toy has been released this week. It contains some rather whizzy advanced charting & is well worth chechking out, especially in light of the recent announcement that it is to remain Free for at least 2011 as well!
