ANNOUNCEMENT! PLEASE READ 🤓
TLDR: My next five Neon Advance consoles will be auctioned for charity. I'll post here when each one goes up for sale.
Hello all and apologies for such an artless gaudy post 😂 I needed your attention 😁
It's been a very strange week and I've gone from a nerd quietly getting on with a fun little hobby to a nerd with a huge amount of sudden exposure. I have been genuinely humbled by the kind comments and huge amount of support from followers new and old but it has raised a lot of questions for me with so many people wanting one (and believe me, I'm thrilled that so many of you do want one!). I don't have a website or a store, I'm not a business and at present I don't even have any consoles left to sell. I'm currently working on #NeonAdvance numbers 14 and 15, that I had already committed to selling before all this blew up, but beyond that I've had to give some careful consideration. I want to give people a fair chance to get one instead of just a first come, first served system that will inevitably lead to much disappointment or putting a waiting list together that would give me a job list to last the rest of my life!
I find myself in a position where I have a great amount of exposure and I want to use that for good. To that end, I have teamed up with Get Well Gamers (@gwguk), a charity that collects donations of videogames and consoles and distributes them to hospitals and hospices for children and adults alike to play during recovery. I have committed my next five console builds (Neon Advance numbers 16-20) to auctions in aid of this charity. I will list them on eBay when each becomes ready, with all proceeds going to Get Well Gamers. I'll keep you all posted along the way. By the time I've got those all sold, maybe I'll have figured out a plan for what to do with the next batch! Thanks everyone for your love and patience 💙
