Shoes for Tots

Postby homegrown » Mon Jun 15, 2009 6:50 am

Sailing up and down the Nile, I notice a poor, unsandaled populace. Therefore, being the philanthropist I am, I've decided to do a "Shoes for Tots Campaign". So I want to raise 250,000 sandals for the poor little children.

For every 3 sandals you send to any of Kenhotep's cities (160S, 163S, 179S, 181S), you will be rewarded with 4 of your choice cosmetics, perfume, or jewelry. Simply send your sandals along with a scroll telling how many, to which city you shipped them, and which luxury you would like as your free gift for donating. In most cases, you should receive reply within 8 hours, it would be extraordinary if you waited 24 hours for a response.

To help cover administrative expensives, we will also accept donations of kohl (to boxerville) or emeralds (to puppytown). Patrons who donate these goods can have their choice of gifts of cedar, henna, oil, or gold up to the amount of their donation. Again, simply ship your donation along with a scroll and your free gift will be sent out usually within 8 - 12 hours.

Watch this thread to see the progress of the Drive. I'll update the image every day (or as it changes). This is also the place for updates should there be new shipping restrictions imposed during the Drive. Any other questions you may have about Shoes for Tots may also be directed here.

Small Print: If you plan on making a donation of 20k or more, please scroll ahead of shipping for priority handling instructions.

Please give generously. All proceeds will go to the poor little children. ;)

No, 0.16% is correct:
400 / 250 000 = 0.0016
(and you can multiply that by 100 to get to 0.16, since it's percents)

the percent

Postby Hyper Shanic928 » Mon Jun 15, 2009 1:34 pm

i'm always too lazy to find the percent. and now i understand what i did wrong. i usually calculate using decimal and i got that wrong too! it was .0016 which is .16% i can figure out what 3000 sandals is. :) ah and it is 1.6% and the total percent is........ 1.765%!!! what a pity :(

Now, I'm not one to go around casting nasturtions, but I suspect that not all of the donated sandals will go to poor children. I would say there is a small chance that some of these sandals might end up in some pharaoh's pyramid. Just sayin'. :P

Figures oil would be the first thing sold out. How much cedar do you have available? I can send you at least 50k kohl and 50k emeralds.

Nope, all these go to the poor little children. I have had the sandals for the tomb for a long time already. :cool:

Note, I have cedar, my issue atm is these 50,000 unit trades using all my ships for 21 hours at a time. :(

SANDALS people. The poor little kiddies need SANDALS. And you want jewelry for them! (or cosmetics or perfume too).

You could always ship the cedar to your other cities and then send them to me from all 4 cities so that you won't run out of ships in 1 place.

I would donate you sandals, but you can't give me anything I don't already produce.
