    I received an email that said I won the Staff Set!

    I mainly entered for the artwork, which I think's incredible!! The pins are the icing on the cake :)

    Thank you Childs Play and thank you Gaming Chronicles!!

    @capitalm I've replied to my winning advice email with my details a few times over the last couple of months and tried contacting GamingChronicles directly on their website but I'm yet to receive confirmation or the prize. Any further ideas please on how I can go about lining this up?

    This was me: "You've won Lot #19, The Blue Kirby Painting by Julia Dennebaum!"

    I replied with details, never heard back and no painting :( even offered to pay for shipping being charity and all.

    Personally just gave up, I was donating for CP and didn't feel like making a deal about it but now with more than one report, I don't think it should go unmentioned.

    Edit: @beker I can't remember if you were just promoting it or if you knew these guys slightly?

    Apparently there was a similar thing last year and someone from the forums won something. Maybe check and see if they ever received it? https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/197853/staff-pin-set-being-given-away-for-childs-play-donation#latest

    maybe try tweeting at some of the people on their "staff list" http://www.gamingchronicles.com/#!the-team/cuq9

    I am looking into these issues and I'd like to apologize on behalf of our team. We had some snags early on with shipping and I will be looking into it first thing in the AM. If you'd like to email me directly, you can to GameChron@gmail.com, and I can get any tracking info to you as I receive it.

    I'm sorry again for any frustrations this might have caused and I appreciate the support we've gotten from everyone for Child's Play.

    Appreciate it, thanks!

    If it helps at all, I'll be at PAX West and would be able to accept mine there (and grgremonkey's if he wanted).

    I received today the Aus '14 set I won from this, so hopefully everyone else gets their stuff Soon™. I had forgotten about it, and it took me a while to figure out why someone sent me some pins!

    @capitalM

    I got mine today as well! Actually I'm really happy this got cleared up because this little painting turned out even more amazing than I thought :) I'm in love, it's dead set perfect.

    Thanks all.
