    I'd also be willing to bet that they take a portion of the donation to cover "reasonable costs".
    if you mean the grocery chains, no, they dont take anything when donating through them, other than the chance to advertise about it

    (in usa and canada, at least)

    afaik, legally the whole donation must be passed along

    I think we can all agree that donating to a charity that you’ve researched is a good thing.
    I think most of us can also agree that the op and some staff members have ran their mouths when they didn’t need to.
    With that said as long as people are aware of a good cause it’s a net positive I’d say. It is natural to be skeptical, but there appears to be little to no evidence of Ched doing this for personal gain.
    If you want in-game benefits then donate through Torn, otherwise donate directly or don’t donate at all. No one is going to force you to do anything, and from what sugarvalves and Ched, (and I believe bogie as well) said, they will be changing the rewards to be mostly if not all cosmetic. So the bottom line is that a charity hopefully gets more support than it would otherwise. So long as we know which ones we’re supporting if we choose to donate I’m all for it.

    Stealing this comment to mention that there are charities that do real work in finding and figuring out other charities that are worth your support - would be nice to see their recommendations and the admin team bringing their personal favorites from those lists 

    Some charities do harm, most charities do enough, and some charities do amazing work - we should be looking to highlight the latter whether it benefits our tax deductions or not and I’m willing to be the first to donate to prove a stance on it

    Charities that research the best options mean you make the most out of every dollar donated, and they increase the impact we make as humans to benefit other humans.

    Also, on top of last comment - I would be willing to buy more DP and help fund the game knowing Torn continues to sponsor charities by offering 10%, 30%, or whatever value of DP / Subscription profits (exact numbers can be figured out by Ched) to match the donation value we bring up from the charity drives. 

    Again, I think as long as the focus is helping communities aside from our own (to no real benefit of ours in the game) the mindset is pure and people would be willing to donate money to help other people.

    Even 10% match from Torn considering a 24h DP type promotion would help people feel like their money is making a difference and they would want to donate to the charity + support the game as well.

    I think the reason they are staying away from a portion of every DP being donated are the people that complain about donating to a war or some other nonsense. They don't have a "choice."

    With what is being proposed, it's completely voluntary.

    At the end of the day, there will *always* be a section of whiny ****y players that are never happy, no matter how Ched and Bogie handle things.

    If you are referring to me with "there will *always* be a section of whiny ****y players that are never happy", I will say this, I dont like how they are doing it. I dont like that I cannot claim it on my taxes, call me selfish, if that is what you desire. But I like the idea of incentivizing people to donate, at best with a choice and not by cheds liking, but all in all a great idea. Just either start your own f**king charity or use a third party so that people can claim their f**king donations on their f**king taxes, for f**ks sake.

    Also sugartits is a f**king retard, I heard that word is still A-Okay to use, Cheers everyone!

    What a f**king hill to make a stand and die for.

    Let say you really are a big donator of worldly causes as you said (just not for any altruistic side or meaning). Either way you "profit" either in-game or real-life.

    So what if you can't have a whole damm cake. Don't be greedy just so others can live.

    I rather "profit" in both. Help charity, pay less tax (cause f**k governments) and get my sweet cosmetics. But I understand if you leftists dont care about your taxes, because it's for a good cause, right ;D
