In the post that started it all!

"KARAOKE" FUNDRAISING - Everyone Can Join In - Prizes For Everyone!

For those who aren't familiar with what I am talking about, well, a couple of months back, in our Team Australia chat room, in the PAL Server on Discord, I had a silly idea that we could help our @teamaustralia charity fundraising efforts along with a "Karaoke" type of contest. The members present all pitched in with donations of prizes for the contestants and it all came together in like no time. The end result was this crazy roo playing his guitar like a mad man!

BASIC RUN DOWN:

Everyone sang this song......

I Still Call Australia Home

I've been to cities that never close down
From New York to Rio and old London town
But no matter how far or how wide I roam
I still call Australia home

I'm always traveling, I love being free
And so I keep leaving the sun and the sea
But my heart lies waiting over the foam
I still call Australia home

All the sons and daughters spinning 'round the world
Away from their family and friends
But as the world gets older and colder
It's good to know where your journey ends

But someday we'll all be together once more
When all of the ships come back to the shore
Then I realise something I've always known
I still call Australia home

(But no matter how far or wide I roam)
I still call Australia
I still call Australia
I still call Australia home

(But no matter how far or wide I roam)
Oh I still call Australia
I still call Australia
I still call Australia home

The catch was IT WAS SUNG WITH THE SINGERS COUNTRY'S NAME!

Simple enough!

&

The original prize pool was:

  1. A "TA" Steemit Tshirt
  2. A cap from our very own Dtuber @bobaphet. "The Dtuber with the cap"
  3. 7 novelty Bitcoin Coins. (1 per winner = 7 prizes in total)
  4. A Dtube perler keyring.
  5. 10 Steem Stickers (1 per winner = 10 prizes in total)
  6. 1 Steem

& EVERYONE GETS
One Trophy Token for each entry!
(Note: In order to get a Trophy Token you need to have a Bitshares account)

The donators are (in alphabetical order):
@bmj , @bobaphet , @jackmiller , @juicyshark , @kevinli , @mazzle , @trophy-token

Note to all donators: If you could mail all your prizes to @mazzle ASAP, read on and you'll know why.

So here are all the wonderful entries:

First entry was from VENEZUELA , by @rosaimm

RECAUDACIÓN DE FONDOS "KARAOKE" - "KARAOKE" FUNDRAISING. Australia y Venezuela unidas por una noble causa.

Who went on to promote the post with a follow up post for purposes of "transparency" & really it was promoting and supporting our charity fundraising efforts!

Rendición de Cuentas: RECAUDACIÓN DE FONDOS "KARAOKE" - "KARAOKE" FUNDRAISING. Australia y Venezuela unidas por una noble causa

Translation for those among us who don't speak Spanish:
"Accountability: FUNDRAISING "KARAOKE" - "KARAOKE" FUNDRAISING. Australia and Venezuela united by a noble cause"

With a fantastic picture in the post, which just says it all!

I'm singing for TeamAustralia "KARAOKE" FUNDRAISING: "I Still Call Australia Home" by Peter Allen

AUSSIE, AUSSIE, AUSSIE, OI, OI, OI!


OUR THIRD ENTRY WAS FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

A duet sung by @inthenow & @snook

GO TEAM USA!


OUR FOURTH ENTRY CAME IN FROM VENEZUELA!

"Lets all give a big round of applause to TEAM VENEZUELA!"

It arrived on 25. April, which in Australia is ANZAC DAY, so it just made it just that little bit extra special!

FUNDRAISING "KARAOKE" - Team Australia /RECAUDACIÓN DE FONDOS "KARAOKE"- Team Australia


MAN I REMIND MYSELF OF THOSE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST HOSTS!

Only difference being, I'm better looking!

Now, seeing as we have five participants in our four entries, what I've gone and done on my own without asking anyone is to buy another four shirts so EVERYONE gets a shirt!

Yep, you read it right, every person gets a genuine Team Australia T-Shirt.

SO EVERYONE IS EQUAL!

As for the other prizes, I will leave it up to our donators to choose which of the videos they liked most and to get in touch with the singers directly and mail 'em out.


How to claim your prizes?

Well, after this post my fellow Aussie @mazzle shall send out a private message to all the above singers via direct messages on Discord.

or you can contact him, either way, just make sure you all get in touch directly.

Who is @mazzle?

Well he runs this fantastic online store from where I purchased the Steem T-Shirts.

So for him to be able to post out your well deserved prize, you need to get in touch with him!

Who's da T-Shirt man?

@mazzle 's da man !!!!!

So your prizes are going to be mailed out to you by da man himself, @mazzle!


Now the fun part, "ACCOUNTING"

All our fantastic contestants agreed to donate liquid SBD funds raised on their entry posts to the @teamaustralia charity fundraising efforts.

Grand total raised is:

22.063SBD & 0.876 STEEM

AND THAT'S NOT ALL......

No, no steak knives included!

But we did have people who (like myself) were too "shy" to sing, so we pitched in with promotional posts and donated funds from these posts to the charity run!

Here is a list of all the promotional posts for our Karaoke charity fundraiser:

wink, wink, nudge, nudge

(no kinky or funny business involved in my winking and nudging, just so you don't get the wrong idea or something.)

and to end it all, what better way than with the original song and singer.

RIP mate.

On behalf of Team Australia to everyone who pitched in and supported us in this effort, from upvotes, resteems, telling friends about it, all the way to actually participating in the Karaoke,

Woohoo! Congrats to the winners! Time to get some shirts printed me thinks! My discord ID is the same as my name here so feel free to get in touch with postal details and shirt sizes. :)

What happiness for the results of this collection, I thank God first, Brother @jackmiller and @teamaustralia team, for allowing me to be part of this good cause. Greetings and Blessings to all. Count on my support for your next projects.

Friend @jackmiller, I need your help.
The accounts @a-cmsidl @a-steemdefleague are giving me a flag to some publications and comments, both in English and in Spanish. And they do not say the reasons why they do it.
I do not know what to do in this circumstance.
Thank you if you can help me.

Fabulous result, Jack! Always good to be reminded of TA community spirit. :). I’m glad @quochuy got second place....hang on, you’re one of the very few that actually had the guts to sing! You know you won my witness vote permanently for that right? Lol
