First Child's Play donation, check!

It's been three weeks since we put Snowfall Live Wallpaper up on the market, and, well, it's done better than I was expecting.

Searching our Checkout listings for "Snowfall Charity charged" (which gets us the non-canceled orders only) results in 10,343 hits as of 10:39am today.  Each of these nets something like 67.482 cents after Google and Checkout fees.

Rounding the half up to 34 cents, that means we owe Child's Play $3516.62!

So, rather than sitting on this I figured it was time to send over the first donation.  I checked the local Texas Children's Hospital's wish list and bought them a PS3, 360, Wii, and a DS Lite, along with a Blu-Ray copy of the absolutely stunning Planet Earth.  The rest I sent over as a Paypal cash donation a few minutes later.

This has been a lot more successful than I was expecting, I have to admit, especially considering we're only just now getting into the holiday season.  I want to thank everybody for the great support, both for ourselves and for Child's Play, and look forward to writing another one one of these posts a couple weeks from now.  :)


  1. I purchased it but can not get it to install and can't repurchase

  2. Just purchased this as I saw what you where doing with the proceeds. Well done. I've purchased several of your wallpapers as you do a great job. keep up the good work.

  3. I love the wallpaper, but had to turn it off until a hopeful update for the HTC EVO 4G. There is rainbow-color corruption in the upper left, going across about an inch and down about 1/2 the screen. This alone isn't the killer... The live wallpaper also has a tendency to crash my phone in such a way that the display stops rendering, and turning the screen off and back on gets a black screen. Usually, after waiting a while, the phone will reboot on it's own. Otherwise, it's battery removal time.
