It's our Anniversary! + Child's Play

Hi everybody,

From the entire Paperpokés team, we would like to thank everyone for visiting us. We're so happy that you enjoy our work, and that you keep coming back, week after week, to see our newest models. We have already had over 370000 visitors, which is a lot for a website that is simply about paper and glue!

In December last year, we decided to form an official papercrafting team and start up a new website called "Paperpokés" - a place where we could showcase our Pokémon papercrafts. We had hoped that some people might find it interesting, but we never thought that it would receive such a strong, positive reaction from all of our followers/readers. Every week we get many emails, comments and thanking notes from every single continent. We've even been featured on some big websites, magazines, and even TV!

And now, 365 days later, we are celebrating our very first anniversary! It has certainly been one very remarkable year; one that we shall remember all our lives. It had been filled with both laughter and tears. We've made some really good friends on the way, but sadly, we have also lost one of our most precious friends - she will be in our heart forever - we really could not have done all of this without her.

Anyway, we've had some requests from a few people who wanted to give us donations, and (sadly) we have to say "no", since ... well ... we have no idea what we would do with the donations, lol! So, instead, we had another idea:

If you feel charitable in these joyful days, we would greatly appreciate it if you could give a little to those less fortunate. One charity that we really like is Child's Play from the Penny-Arcade fame, and we would like to refer you to them if you wish to offer a donation.
