Teo Adoption Drops

Site Update

Goto News Post



Teos in the adoption center can drop either in their actual genus, or in a random genus to offset the enormous advantage that Goggle users have in finding them. They are still dropped in both ways, but there is no telling which way any particular egg or batch will be dropped.

Cracked Teacups - HIV/AIDS Fundraiser

Site Update

Goto News Post

Would you care for a spot of tea?

magic_crackedteacup.png

The Cracked Teacup is a custom creator that will create a Teacup Mouse (with up to 30% edits) and is a reward that we will give you in exchange for a donation to a charity or organization that helps with HIV/AIDS research, treatment, support, etc.

HIV/AIDS affects millions of people worldwide, and their loved ones. Despite the stereotypes associated with this disease, HIV/AIDS can infect anyone, regardless of sexuality, gender, race, geography, income, or any of the factors we typically use to divide ourselves. The common denominator in those suffering from HIV/AIDS is the very thing that connects us together--our humanity.

Therefore, we encourage you to help a fellow human being out and make an impact on their life with a donation that can fund research for a cure, treatment, and other resources.

TeacupMouse.png

Click the image above to download the 400 x 400 PSD.

The Cracked Teacup item you receive can then be used to create a custom Teacup Mouse, beautifully done by Phee (#18786). If tea alone doesn't make you feel better, maybe the cute little mouse will help!

Below are the details for how to obtain a Cracked Teacup from a donation:

- Donate a minimum of $10 USD* (or equivalent) to a non-profit charity/organization of your choice that supports HIV/AIDS research, resources, efforts, etc.
- Send an e-mail to me with your proof of donation/receipt; the address to use is aywas.eri@gmail.com. When emailing, please include your name and user ID, otherwise I won't know who to deliver the Cracked Teacup to!
- Donation must be made and proof turned in by May 27th, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. but the Cracked Teacup item itself works indefinitely.

*We will give you a Cracked Teacup for every 10 USD (or equivalent) increment you donate to an appropriate non-profit charity/organization. So if you donate $10, you will get 1 Cracked Teacup. If you donate $50, you will get 5 Cracked Teacups. If you donate $15, you will get 1 Cracked Teacup.

Above is Kei's custom Teacup Mouse, Ciel!

If you're looking for information on HIV/AIDS or suggested places to donate, here are a few resources:
amfAR | UNICEF | UN AIDS | ACET International | AVERT

Any non-profit HIV/AIDS charity or organization is acceptable -- there is no requirement about the organization being local, national, in a particular country, etc. If you have any questions about whether or not the one you're planning on donating to would be acceptable, or any other related inquiries, feel free to PM or email me or Kei (#4690). :3

Thank you, and let's clink our teacups to a cure!

Congratulations!

The current theme is Tea Parties!
This week, your task is to create something related to Aywas and Tea Parties, but it does not necessarily have to coincide with our current site event. :) Any medium is fine as well.
Official Aywas stock not permitted for this theme.

Good luck!

LGBTQA Tea Party

Site Update

Goto News Post



In honor of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (May 17th) and HIV Vaccine Awareness Day (May 18th), Kei (#4690) is using a Handheld World to host an LGBTQA Tea Party celebration!

As an initial token of the festivities, you can take home your very own Colorful Companion (the cute critter up there) from the Trash Shop! This is a wearable item for your HA, which you can preview here.



It also seems that beautiful flowers have begun to fall all over the site!
You will find Violets (10 points) and Green Carnations (5 points) randomly floating on site pages. If you encounter one, come to the Garden Tea Party to turn it in for flower points, which will be used in the Seasonal Shop. :3

Our celebration is just beginning, so stay tuned for more details on event goodies and information on how you can contribute to the festivities!

Goto News Post

Raw Pet Week has arrived!
May 17th - May 24th

collectable_antiquitystave.gifmagic_blueantiquitystave.pngmagic_metalantiquitystave.png

Antiquity Staves are now on sale in the GP Shop for a limited time only!
They will be available from now until May 24th at 11:59 p.m.

collectable_rafflecrystal.png

Don't have the funds for one?
Remember to collect raffle crystals this week, as we'll be drawing a winner for a Blue Antiquity Stave on Wednesday!

clothing_artistholdablepalette.png

In addition to the stave sale, the Walooph weekend coloring contest, and some other little giveaways/raffles, we are also opening up two design contests!

Design a Raw - Visual and Design a Raw - Descriptive!
The Visual contest is an opportunity for you to submit concept art for a new raw pet, while the Descriptive contest allows you to submit a text-based concept for one.

We really wanted to open up the raw family to as many people as possible, so hopefully you enjoy the dual design contests! :3 You are free to enter both, and there will be one winner from each contest.
The deadline for entries is May 24th at 11:59 p.m.

Good luck!

And now, for the moment you've been waiting for...

BRING BACK A RETIRED RAW!

That's right--you have the opportunity to turn one of the retired raw pets into either an Ay or Ara genus!

Due to the success and popularity of the poll last year during our debut Raw Pet Week--which ultimately sent the Plio to Ara--we have brought back the voting to send one of our retired pets to a new location. :3

Cast your vote for your favorite retired raw from the options listed below. Once voting is closed and a winner is declared, staff will announce which region the pet will appear in based on where it would fit best.

To vote, simply post a comment that includes the phrase "#PET" where "PET" is the genus you want to see return! (Make sure you spell it correctly!) We must use this voting method since our standard polls are limited to 10 options, and there are more than 10 retired raws to choose from.

Enjoy the festivities! <3
