Contest  Reminder: Only three days left to enter in the TouchPad Go raffle!

It's hard being a webOS fan. Especially when most of the devices that we wanted never even hit store shelves. Devices like WindsorNot and TouchPad Go haunt us every time we see a similar device released with a similar idea rocking a different operating system. With that said, if you just so happen to own a device like say...a TouchPad Go you would be one of the coolest people on the interwebs as you have something few other tech geeks have! Thanks to community member Rich Dunbar you now have that chance with his TouchPad Go raffle

For the downright tiny and respectably reasonable amount of $10 you can enter to win two awesome piles of webOS gear (one of which contains a TouchPad Go). Not only do you get a chance to win some sweet webOS swag but you also will be helping raise money be donated to the community outreach branch of hurricane-hit Plaquemines Parish in Louisiana and longtime Texas HIV/AIDS community volunteer Sally Johnson of Texas.

There's only three days left before Rich announces the winners. So if you want to take a stab at winning the "big" or "small" piles of webOS gear you had better get on it! Entering yourself in the raffle is simple and can be done by purchasing chances via PayPal to in US $10 increments only. They should be made by selecting "Send Money" and "Personal" and "Gift". It is quite simply that simple!

So what are you waiting for? Let's show these Rich just how awesome this community is (you're pretty much exceedingly awesome, for the record) and raise some cash for these two awesome causes!



Just sent in my $10. Would love to win anything. Took my last $10 in my Paypal account...

For a good cause, this contest deserved our support. Good efforts for bringing everybody into an act of generosity. - Missed Fortune

I would not mind a Go or one of the others... submitted my chance! Let's raise lots of money!

Thanks for reminding us about this awesome contest! Just got my $10 entry. Good luck to all and hope we´ll raise lots of money for these good causes!

Just bought 50 raffle chances. I especially hope I win the Go, but even if I don't, I'm glad to help out. My thoughts and prayers to the recipients!

I missed the original announcement and just saw that the deadline is Midnight 9/30. So did I miss it, or was the intended deadline Sunday night (effectively 11:59 PM)?

I've always interpreted that to mean midnight tonight (i.e., just under six hours from now). I can't think of an instance where someone used "midnight" to refer to the start of a day. I've always seen it as a reference to the end of a day.

Yes Sunday 9/30 11:59 PM is it. You still have just over 5 hours from my post time. Good luck!

Charity & webOS goodies? I couldn't resist - I dropped $30 bucks on this last night!
