TWD final copy.pngThe LE- Walking Dead Sweepstakes is sold-out at this time! Thank you all for your tremendous support!

The pinsiders are the best! This has been an exciting post to watch develop. Thank you for all the kind words and generous giving. This will give another chance to help another Children’s hospital!

We will be posting the LE drawing information shortly.

We have ONLY 1 more donation entry for Sweepstakes #3, before we start #4.

You can get more information about our 501(c)3 charity on our site located at ProjectPinball.org or you can find us on Facebook at Project Pinball-Saving the Pinball Machine at the Children’s Hospital of SWFL. Come “Like” our Facebook page to show the children your support.

Daniel, can you talk about how you set up the pins, meaning do you have to train someone how to open the machine if a ball gets stuck or how you handle any breakage?

Is it difficult to get approval for the pins? I work at a hospital and know first hand how much red tape they can come up with.

You should get some candid pics or video of the kids playing these once they are on site.

Are you limited to one city or state for the children's hospitals?

#253 5 years ago

I was kind of wondering about the maintenance and such as well, lol.

#254 5 years ago

pinball machines have maintenance? idk mine are just broke all the time....makes it easy

#255 5 years ago

I'd still like to know which distributor donated the LE for the cause. Really nice of them to do so.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

not sure you are reading it right, the dealer did NOT donate the pin. He is selling the pin to the charity (not donating it) if it was donated this sweepstakes could cover 3 pro pins to the cause instead of one

Quoted from Mole:

We received some awesome news! A Limited Edition- The Walking Dead Pinball Machine
We had a generous dealer, whom wishes to be kept anonymous, offered Project Pinball Charity a Stern Limited Edition- The Walking Dead Pinball Machine to use for additional sweepstakes to help our charity cause. They approached Project Pinball Charity because they love our mission statement and wanted to help in this way.

*This donation will allow us to cover the costs of the LE model pinball machine and allow us to place another PRO model pinball machine in another Children's Hospital.

*when he says 'this donation' he means my donation or your donation, not the donation from the dealer.

When he says, 'cover the cost of the LE' that means he is buying the LE to give away with part of the collections.

Still it's nice to have an LE for the sweepstakes prize.

In for a great cause!!

Quoted from rai:

Are you limited to one city or state for the children's hospitals?

I don't want to speak for Dan or the Charity, but I know they want this to be all over the country and it is definitely headed to as many cities as possible. I'm pretty sure a Star Trek went into St Louis already. It is definitely not one city or state. These drawings will help to speed this process for sure.

Personally I would love to see a machine go into a hospital near me in Central Florida. I would volunteer in a heartbeat to stop by on a regular schedule to make sure it is running correctly and kept clean. One more thing; I believe showing pictures or video from a hospital is very difficult based on patient confidentiality or something.

MN Flippers thanks for giving a couple local Florida local heroes national attention

Didn't think about that.

I have traded a couple of e-mails with him about getting something going here in the Seattle area. I am very interested in helping and I know that a number of the other collectors in the area are as well.

A politician and a raffle = controversy or tomorrows headline ! !

Seriously good luck to all, especially me, and congrats to the kids for getting a much deserved machine!

BTW Sweepstakes #4 is just above 25% sold so go to http://www.projectpinball.org/sweepstakes/ to enter!

#266 5 years ago

Alright, I just did sweepstakes number 4. I'm in 3 and 4. If this fills up I will hop in 5 as well.

the 4th is going? crap...there goes the bank account

#268 5 years ago

I am in on #3.

#269 5 years ago

I'm trying to limit myself to 1 entry per week. It's hard. must..resist..

#270 5 years ago

It's addicting as hell, I've taken 4 chances so far!!

I see the pace is slowing down as we are probably running out of money, but great cause I encourage other people who aren't necessarily into spending $5000 on a game, but I warn them with income taxes it's still going to cost them $1500 more or less. I just don't want them to be surprised at the end if they do win.

#271 5 years ago

Up to 35% on the new drawing.

Quoted from rai:

Crap so when I win all 4 drawings I am going to owe nearly $6,000?!

Plus when I win the Walking Dead LE, I will owe like $2,000?!

Oh well, I'll make it! I knew I could show my accountant that I could do pinball expenses on my business and make them legit!

#273 5 years ago

We had some great questions come in to us at Project Pinball Charity over the last month, some of them were asked by pinsiders here. So we put together a small video to answer them as face to face as we could.

There was no editing, this was one take video. These are the questions put together and emailed to me so I was a surprised by some of the questions which made it very enjoyable. It was a lot of fun to throw this together and we do appreciate your interest as well as all your help.

#274 5 years ago

I know I probably won't win, but we are all winners for helping out this charity.

#275 5 years ago

Funny thing I'll admit, I had gift cards that I won from work sitting in my briefcase. I've been itching to spend them but couldn't figure out what the heck I wanted to spend them on, Color DMD, a new Mod, maybe some lighted flipper buttons.
As soon as I saw this charity, I immediately took those cards out of my briefcase and spent them on this charity and the chance to win a pinball.

What a great idea!!!!! Funny thing is, I'm thinking more about the Parents of sick kids playing the pins as they are passing (difficult) time by. I pray for them and hope this brings some "escape" for them so they can clear their heads and be there for their kids when they need them the most.

#276 5 years ago

I'm in. Great job, and appreciate what your doing. I've spent a lot of time at hospitals lately (Wont go into details), so i can only imagine what it is like for kids whom are in their long term......

#277 5 years ago

Yea, I'm going to see if I can get some non-pinside buddies to get in. I have money ready for round five. Let's get there!

#278 5 years ago

Great Q/A video.

#279 5 years ago

I just bought into sweepstakes #4. This is a great charity. I had a long chat with Dan this past June at Southern Fried Gameroom.

#280 5 years ago

I have an off the wall question.....I'm locked in for number 3 and I picked the ST pro. While I do want the pin and if by some miracle I win, are there any rules against me donating it to a children's hospital in my state of CT?

#281 5 years ago

Hmm, I'd think if anyone was to win the sweepstakes it would be yours to do with what you wanted. Maybe I'm mistaken but I dont see why there would be restrictions like that.

Watch the Q&A video that was posted above as it is very informative. He encourages people willing to help out locally to contact him. And yes, if you win its your game to do with what you want!

Super excited to see the drawing and results! Thanks for all the hard work Daniel, and please pass on my appreciation to the rest of the Project Pinball team.

#285 5 years ago

In with (2) chances in #4! The gambling bug has hit full-force.

I'm in #1, #2, #3, #4, and the LE sweepstakes.

But since it's for a good cause, I'm not gonna call gambler's anonymous.

Let's fill this 4th one up by the 19th!

Congrats to the winner!!!

#299 5 years ago

I'm in on Drawing #4. It is up to about 50% now.

#300 5 years ago

Man... would've been a lot happier if 20000th in the world won a free game over the #20th in the world.

Rich get richer.. ouch. At least he only got half my money and the other half-ish goes to the charity. *shakefist*

/facepalm

Lucky in tournaments and drawings, look out.
