Charity Corner Live

Update: The event is now live!

View Our Charity Corner Guide! »

Donating is slightly different this year - but the avatar is already active!


This year's Charity Corner will be starting very soon! Although the main page is not yet up, both the Perk Shop Preview and the FAQ are now live! It seems there will be a new host this year!

We'll update you as soon as the event is actually live. As a note, this year's Charity Corner will most likely award an avatar:

herdy - JN Staff, 05/6/2019, 10:09 am NST
The new host, of course, is clearly not a copy/paste of Mirsha Grelinek's face.

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 10:14 am NST
Kind of a murky, blurry little avatar.

mortychichi, 05/6/2019, 10:14 am NST
Maybe she is Mirsha Grelinek

escrainus, 05/6/2019, 10:19 am NST
Preview page is down

herdy - JN Staff, 05/6/2019, 10:20 am NST
Not for me escrainus?

mortychichi, 05/6/2019, 10:21 am NST
Oh oh it seems like it's set in Shenkuu so that might actually be Mirsha Grelinek when she's not on the field, makes sense if they're sticking AC right behind CC

bonju, 05/6/2019, 10:21 am NST
I don't like the "random" perk thing, and I'm really interested in the exclusive item that I'll "definitely want to keep"

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 10:24 am NST
Ooh, the More For Less perk is amazing!

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 10:26 am NST
They are still adding all the prize points to the perks list. And I wonder how much "later" the NC part will start.
The FAQ says the main part should have started already.

bonju, 05/6/2019, 10:28 am NST
I wonder if the Zapped! perk will let us keep the petpet even when taking it away from a pet.

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 10:28 am NST
The hub page link is no longer taking me to the Neopets home page. Can't wait to start!

herdy - JN Staff, 05/6/2019, 10:30 am NST
It isn't Mirsha -- the FAQ names her as a new character, Atsumi.

bonju, 05/6/2019, 10:31 am NST
There's a link in my inventory now

mortychichi, 05/6/2019, 10:34 am NST
*facepalm* why

berixmaster2010, 05/6/2019, 10:34 am NST
I can currently select items to discard for the event now, but since the page isn't up I can't actually do anything with them yet.

sakeru187, 05/6/2019, 10:43 am NST
I really want the More for Less perk. I can try for uber hard games I fail at avatars.

Also really glad for Bring Back the Old days site themes, I only need two and they're ones I really love.

will - JN Staff, 05/6/2019, 10:49 am NST
Oddly, the source code has a dropdown menu for the site theme perk, including DEFAULT themes (what?), event themes dating back only as far as TWR, and one unreleased theme...

stepupfairy, 05/6/2019, 11:00 am NST
I love the site theme perk too (how I got the Qasalan one), hope I manage the avatar this year!

Think I was one of those that got awarded the winter CC avvie by mistake last year, they said they would take it back but think I cheekily still got mine

princess_zelda_, 05/6/2019, 11:28 am NST
It's letting you donate items but you can't crush them

surferaj, 05/6/2019, 11:29 am NST
Living With Less Link on our Inventory Page is OBNOXIOUS to say the least!

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 11:33 am NST
I just got 1 point each for 10 r93 items...

keyblade_warrior_10, 05/6/2019, 11:33 am NST
Oddly enough, it's not awarding points based on Rarity.

pancaketime, 05/6/2019, 11:34 am NST
Having to individually load each item from the inventory pop-up is going to get a tad old, if that is indeed the only way to do it. I was able to crush an item, but don't see a points total anywhere.

pancaketime, 05/6/2019, 11:36 am NST
I'm holding off on any more donations, because the FAQ says rarity will matter, but it doesn't seem to be recognizing that yet.

pancaketime, 05/6/2019, 11:38 am NST
Ah, I see. Clicking the orange button pops up how many points you've earned.

pasqui, 05/6/2019, 11:39 am NST
I am amazed that JS manage to make something even more tedious than the dropdown option... Going to your inventory, clicking an item, get the pop up for the item, click the button to donate, click another item, get the new popup, click the button, repeat...
It will take days just to get 10,000 points at this rate. (Especially if they don't fix the points awarded based on rarity and everything is 1 point.)
Also nowhere it shows how many points you currently have (hopefully another thing they will fix.)

This is ridiculous. I hope my leftover 50,000 points from last year will take care of most of what I want because I cannot handle this super tedious process.

anabsolutehorizon, 05/6/2019, 11:39 am NST
The first batch of items I donated gave me 24 points, but now it won't work when I try to donate... I'll click the lever and the animation will run through, but it'll say I'm 'awarded 0 points' and my items are still there.

keyblade_warrior_10, 05/6/2019, 11:39 am NST
Okay. I just hope they fix that in a timely manner.

pasqui, 05/6/2019, 11:41 am NST
Okay, it said I got only 10 points for donating 10 r102 omelettes, but then when I click the orange button as pancaketime said, it shows me I have 40 points so it did award me 4 points per r102 item rather than a single point.

wish, 05/6/2019, 11:42 am NST
1 point each for r101 items .. hmm .. this is my first year playing CC and i'm bummed that some of the perks i was after are now a lottery style perk. will play because i now have over 15k items saved but hopefully it's more than just 1pt per item.. that would be a big bummer..

pasqui, 05/6/2019, 11:49 am NST
8 points for the r100 Sticky Snowball, so it looks like the points are the same as last year.

It also won't let me donate r180 items (like last year)

AND you cannot donate more than 10 items at a time. It won't give you the button if 10 items are waiting to be donated. So you have to go through the long animation per 10 items... This is the going to be the most tedious event ever.

smartman294, 05/6/2019, 11:54 am NST
ngl these perks seem really insane, even more crazy then last year.

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 11:58 am NST
I just donated one item, it told me I got 8 points, but my total went up by only 6. I'm going to wait until later to do any more.

burnintoflames, 05/6/2019, 11:58 am NST
I take it that the rush to donate all at once is causing lag? I might wait.

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 12:08 pm NST
It's also not letting us know how many points total we have including the ones carried over from last time.

missdood, 05/6/2019, 12:14 pm NST
I was just awarded the avatar
You are now eligible to use 'Charity Corner 2019' as an avatar on the NeoBoards!

missdood, 05/6/2019, 12:19 pm NST
I donated 182 total points so far. But I think I really donated more items than I have points!

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 12:36 pm NST
After getting the avatar, the machine is going through the motions but my items are not going away and I'm not getting any more points. Refreshing the page doesn't work.

surferaj, 05/6/2019, 12:44 pm NST
I'm not getting this to work at all. TNT SUCKS!!! They should have left things the same as last year since they cannot seem to program themselves out of a paper box..... Just TOO pathetic!!!!

Sorry Dave... But it's a fact!

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 12:44 pm NST
Oh, I see what happened. It's possible to donate more than 10 items if you click fast, but if there are more than 10 items going into the machine it will not accept them and you have to delete one.

no1wf, 05/6/2019, 12:57 pm NST
Does it make any difference if you donate one at a time or a few at once?

purplebin, 05/6/2019, 12:59 pm NST
You can donate up to 10 items at once. Since you have to wait through a long animation it's best to always donate 10 at a time.

topaz644, 05/6/2019, 12:59 pm NST
Got the avie but boy, this lag! To be expected I suppose.

surferaj, 05/6/2019, 1:20 pm NST
IT's NOT REALLY WORKING AT ALL FOR MOST OF US.... Just another, sad, pathetic effort by TNT....

xing_darcie, 05/6/2019, 1:41 pm NST
Is the av after 100 items or 100 donations? (so would be better to do 100 x 1 item donations if not trying to rank up points?)

beedeebee, 05/6/2019, 1:43 pm NST
I just saw someone on a board they got the avvy after 800 points; not sure if others have verified that.

chibiaden14, 05/6/2019, 1:45 pm NST
I can go through the motions of d0nating, but no points are added.

pasqui, 05/6/2019, 1:47 pm NST
Avatar is after 100 items, points don't matter. (800 points was probably 100 items worth 8 points each.)

beedeebee, 05/6/2019, 1:47 pm NST
So this is Marie Kondo ing all our stuff, right?

biediep, 05/6/2019, 1:51 pm NST
The extra FC bets one is nice I guess, the rest.. not worth clicking for :/

rylon - JN Staff, 05/6/2019, 2:04 pm NST
What on earth is this donation method ... I'm going on holiday and will be mobile-only, that's just going to be awful. I thought they were meant to be improving user-experience?

goddess_of_winter156, 05/6/2019, 2:30 pm NST
donating and not getting any points. if it is going by rarity, then there should be some, but if it's going by last year, it would be great to know.

pancaketime, 05/6/2019, 2:40 pm NST
I don't see points added right after, but do see that the total went up when I refresh. I have no idea why they thought making it slower and harder to donate was a good idea. This would have been fine if they'd let us donate more at a time (up to 50, say) with a "select all" sort of function on our inventory.

spabl, 05/6/2019, 2:54 pm NST
No problems playing on my tablet, faster for me than on my desktop pc.

surferaj, 05/6/2019, 2:55 pm NST
Point already made.... TNT Sucks at getting things improved.... Just overall sad....

sweetie_purple16, 05/6/2019, 3:02 pm NST
I think it's still being pretty glitchy...? I donated a Sticky Snowball and it gave me 8 points. But donating 10 Sticky Snowballs at once only gave me 10 points, and 8 points when I donated 8 Sticky Snowballs at once. Sigh... I'll hold off until they iron out all the kinks.

miss_colly, 05/6/2019, 3:23 pm NST
My first charity corner, donated 10 items got 0 points, of to a good start.

pancaketime, 05/6/2019, 3:49 pm NST
In my case, it tells me the correct point count when I donate one item, but always says ten points if I donate ten. The points are properly adding up if I refresh and press the button to check, though.

combustibles, 05/6/2019, 4:20 pm NST
Good job breaking it JumpStaff...

xid, 05/6/2019, 5:09 pm NST
This donating system is a nightmare.

burnintoflames, 05/6/2019, 6:20 pm NST
So do you no longer get notifications of receiving avatars anymore? I was going through my list of avatars and saw I got this year's CC and 3 other avatars I never even knew I was awarded.

kingloui17, 05/6/2019, 6:22 pm NST
They really love that ugly thick border on their avatars don't they.

sinavarice, 05/6/2019, 6:28 pm NST
Okay which browser is best to use Neopets on??? I typically use Chrome and after returning to Neopets after a few years absence, my experience has been COMPLETELY miserable so far all because of my browser.

sinavarice, 05/6/2019, 6:30 pm NST
The Hub Page is completely blank for me, even after enabling flash. I can't select any items, can't pull the lever or anything else. I'm not asking for much here lol

charlie_eppes_, 05/6/2019, 6:36 pm NST
I can't get it to take any of my items. It'll go through the animation but it wont take my items and give me points.

charlie_eppes_, 05/6/2019, 6:45 pm NST
I can donate 1 item at a time right now. Any more and the machine wont take it lol

lia_19_85, 05/6/2019, 7:09 pm NST
I added 4 Realm of the Water Faeries (r92 book) and processed them and it said I got 4 points, while I should have gotten 24?

Is there a way to see overall points? I'd like to check if I actually got 4 or if the text was wrong.

surferaj, 05/6/2019, 7:23 pm NST
TNT'S failures exposed like this make us realize that it would be better if they didn't even bother to improve anything on the site. Very sad!

escrainus, 05/6/2019, 8:19 pm NST
TNT should seriously take away that "Perk me up" condition and just grant acces to the perks locked up behind that hideous thing... is already bad the retired site theme is random to be random to get that specific perk... also, if someone has no lab ray.. does the perk goes to waste if you get it?

alltimemarr, 05/6/2019, 10:29 pm NST
So where is the perk shop FAQ located. Because its mentioned in the perk descriptions a few times

seven_dead_owls, 05/6/2019, 10:38 pm NST
Maybe Mirsha and Atsumi are sisters?
Identical twins

remy, 05/6/2019, 11:05 pm NST
I hope the 10 perks in the smaller sized grid listed at the bottom aren't something to do with the NC side of it later.
They haven't been given point requirements like all the others.

escrainus, 05/6/2019, 11:28 pm NST
http://www.neopets.com/charitycorner/2019/perks/faq sends me to a 404

cat, 05/7/2019, 12:31 am NST
I wish there were a faster way to donate, it’s taking forever to select items. Like seriously, how hard is a button to dump my entire inventory into the machine?

cat, 05/7/2019, 12:39 am NST
@remy - the perks in the smaller grid are randomly assigned when you buy Perk Me Up.

inuyashaohki, 05/7/2019, 1:11 am NST
If you're stuck, take all the items off and re-add them carefully. It seems to be very prone to add the wrong number of items...including the same item twice.

akiho, 05/7/2019, 5:47 am NST
I'm not having any of the problems that people seem to be having? It all works fine, it's just slow process

beedeebee, 05/7/2019, 5:59 am NST
I'm not having problems either. Though sometimes the clicking-the-slot to tell me how many points I got is wrong, clicking the yellow-orange button after refreshing is accurate.

Trying to decide, though, as the refreshing and clicking is giving me a headache, what perk is worth more - the bank one or the stock market one? Last year I was able to get both; this year I think I'll just scrape by getting enough points for one.

puffkins2000, 05/7/2019, 7:08 am NST
Does anyone know where there's a point counter at? I think I donated 30 points worth of stuff already, but I'd like to make sure.

It was taking too long to donate stuff last night, so I already lost track.

stormmonarch, 05/7/2019, 7:57 am NST
@puffkins2000: you can click the slot (the black cloud shape thing) to see the points of the CURRENT donation, and the orange yellow button to see the accumulated points BEFORE the current donation.

teleplay, 05/7/2019, 8:24 am NST
Something Has Happened!
You are now eligible to use 'Charity Corner 2019' as an avatar on the NeoBoards!

Finally! Took so long with the event glitching non-stop.

sakeru187, 05/7/2019, 8:40 am NST
I don't like this new CC method but I'll be doing my best to make it to 10,001 points for gold (as long as the recs are the same as last year).

eggsalad, 05/7/2019, 9:24 am NST
This... This is so bad.

topaz644, 05/7/2019, 10:04 am NST
so very bad...multiple clicking and fast clicking no longer work for me.

burnintoflames, 05/7/2019, 10:20 am NST
So spam clicking is out. It's a shame they couldn't implement something to how the Money Tree fortune cookie works or a dropdown system similar to the Cooking Pot.

ariadne_theia, 05/7/2019, 10:21 am NST
The guide references a section on NC donation but there isn't one in the guide. Is that coming?

flyingchair, 05/7/2019, 10:24 am NST
Aw, I was hoping it was just me. I'm falling asleep trying to donate items

purplebin, 05/7/2019, 10:39 am NST
Slow and careful clicking is the way to go, otherwise you end up with dupes on the LwL page or just too many items, and it won't work unless you remove them.

dave - JN Staff, 05/7/2019, 11:34 am NST
@ariadne_theia: Sorry, we just added a blank "Neocash Drive" section to our guide with a blurb about it.

It hasn't been released by TNT yet. It's unknown right now when that will pop up. We'll update, of course, when it does.

purplebin, 05/7/2019, 1:38 pm NST
The main LwL page does say "a few days" before the NC Drive starts. I'm guessing tomorrow or Thursday.

puffkins2000, 05/7/2019, 1:53 pm NST
@stormmonarch; ahh! Thank you so much! ^^

inkpot, 05/7/2019, 4:25 pm NST
hoo boi this is gonna take a long time to clear out my sdb.
guess this'll force me to catch up on some shows while i do this....

zixianna, 05/7/2019, 4:34 pm NST
Donating 4 point items I already have or bought, I'm spending about 2 seconds per 1 point (1 minute 20 seconds for 10 donations).
That means a 1,000 point perk will take over 30 minutes of donating.
If you've a ton of 8 point donatables, then you're down to 1:1 ratio, congrats to you
At my current rate, the big ticket items - Bank Bribery (8,000 points = 2,000 donations and 4 1/2 hours of donating).
Glad I already have the avatar now, now to see how much time I actually want to spend clicking. My favorite perks from last year were the permanent 10 extra Inventory slots and the extra Avatar (Korbat) (I don't have hundreds of millions to make Bank rate increases worthwhile)

At the same time... 'More for Less', even at over an hour of donating time likely could have saved me MANY hours on Snowmuncher and Snowroller avatars had it been around years ago!

purplebin, 05/7/2019, 4:52 pm NST
I'm not happy that the More for Less perk is randomly awarded. And do the random perks activate right away, or can we start them when we are ready? Questions, questions.
I also hope they soon show us our actual total points, including the carryover from last year.

ariadne_theia, 05/7/2019, 5:00 pm NST
@dave; thanks so much!

escrainus, 05/7/2019, 5:22 pm NST
The perk's FAQ is still broken...

alltimemarr, 05/7/2019, 6:01 pm NST
Did the more for less perk get moved?? O thought when the event started it was available directly.

themeepit32, 05/7/2019, 8:35 pm NST
TNT pls stop trying to fix what's not broken, you made it worse

alex, 05/7/2019, 8:52 pm NST
I can't participate because the site is too slow

1jediboy, 05/7/2019, 9:32 pm NST
All the perks seem really cool, the new hostess seems nice,
the idea of minimalism is a very nice touch and good moral concept for the challenge! Not only relieving you of excess, but giving you a feeling of positivity similar to donating!
Where do the items go though?

All in all, this seems like a well thought-out event!

^(before I participated in the lag)^

Goodness! This is filled with lag and unhappiness! I'm usually asking for more interactivity on the site, but having to decide what to keep and what to donate as a thoughtful choice in our inventory is a little too interactive. I'm a hoard... er... excessive collector on AND off the site! I don't need to feel questionable or regretful after I donate a plushie! (Donate a plushie on the site. I would never donate a plush toy in real life...)

I hope the prior system for exchanging items returns.

(So this is Marie Kondo ing all our stuff, right? )


(Maybe Mirsha and Atsumi are sisters? Identical twins )

That's what I thought! She could be riding her coattails using her sister's fame to her advantage!

lokaula, 05/7/2019, 11:06 pm NST
Does anyone know if there's a limit to how many items can be donated per day?

mogster, 05/7/2019, 11:27 pm NST
I'm doing it constantly since I'm usually on for hours. I'm hitting 2000 points a day with how slow this is vs the drop down.

morganjoisle, 05/8/2019, 12:01 am NST
Is there a way to make donations work with AdBlock on?

purplebin, 05/8/2019, 6:54 am NST
AdBock is not preventing me from donating at all, in either FF or Chrome

thecrazyoo, 05/8/2019, 6:59 am NST
I've done a lot of boring things in Neopets through the years.
Seriously, this is a PAIN.

ladyamethyst, 05/8/2019, 8:17 am NST
Getting enough for the bank perk then I'm out. It's bad enough the monotonous AC is next month, but we have to suffer through this right before it?

Never dreamed TNT would find a way to make so many people hate this event. Even without the lag, the process is beyond dumb.

zixianna, 05/8/2019, 9:38 am NST
@1jediboy: I'll agree its a cute concept, and the Marie Kondo references to it are neat too. Some of the perks are kinda cool as well.

For me, there are 2 big problems:
1) More copy/paste artwork, which is an ongoing problem to me and
2) The method of item donating works against the goal of 'removing lots of items' or acquiring a decent amount of points. When it'll take many hours for an individual perk, it's a time commitment as high as a week of Altador Cup, without actually playing any games.

Now that I have the Avatar I'll have to see if I want to actually donate more (I bought a LOT of Omelettes yesterday ) That the FAQ is still not complete (i.e. Avatars perks and Site Theme perk, which still aren't listed in the FAQ).

escrainus, 05/8/2019, 9:55 am NST
It is me or the perk FAQ is all about last year? It even mebtions Granny

1jediboy, 05/8/2019, 11:43 am NST
@zixianna - Yes! The donation system needs to revert to it’s original variation!
