#MCRchat Giveaway (May 27-28): Danger Days Promotional Posters

For those of you who didn't get it from the static-riddled hint "transmission" I sent out last night, the left-pictured posters are what I will be giving away this week in #MCRchat thanks to WBR!

Those posters, or "snipes," as they were called, were sold on the MCR online store and their Winter 2010 tours for a limited time in a set that included Dr. Death Defying, The Girl, Korse and the rest of the Killjoys. Fortunately, there was a Fun Ghoul and a Jet Star left over to give away!

Here is how to enter:
1. Follow @MyChemChat on Twitter.
2. Participate in #MCRchat this weekend (I will give away one poster per chat):
Tonight: 7-9 p.m. EST
Saturday: 12-2 p.m. EST
3. I will make note of, then randomly select a winner from those who are actively participating in the chat.

Unfortunately, because of shipping issues, I do have to limit the giveaway to U.S. only.

For more information about #MCRchat and how it works, please see the Twebevent page. I am happy to answer any questions through either my personal Twitter account or the #MCRchat one!


PS: Monday, May 30 is the second anniversary of #MCRchat!

Blink-182 is also offering a VIP ticket package for $225, which includes a t-shirt, guitar picks, a collectible tour laminate and a poster.

It allows the purchaser a better chance at GA and close seat tickets (and I think it's a rip-off).

I will update this post as I get more information.

Help My Chemical Romance Help Mississippi: Bid on a Signed Drumhead

As those of you who read the recent fan report from Atlanta know, My Chemical Romance generously donated a signed drumhead to Brandi, the owner of My Chemical Freak, for her to auction for disaster relief in Mississippi.

As her report reads:
I am from the area in north Mississippi that was ravaged by the EF-5 tornado on April 27, 2011. Hundreds of people died, even more were injured and thousands are now without a home at all. The storm didn’t just mess up their homes, but it completely wiped them off the face of the earth. My town has spent the last few weeks working day and night trying to get help, food and shelter for our neighbors who survived the storm.

When Brandi asked if she could auction the signed poster she got at her meet-and-greet, MCR did her one better and donated the above pictured drumhead.

It is being auctioned via Facebook; as, many who were interested in bidding could not create eBay or Paypal accounts for it.

To bid,"Like" Help My Chemical Romance Help Mississippi on Facebook, and leave your bid in the comments on the drumhead photo. There will be a $12 shipping fee added to the winning bid.

All proceeds from the auction will go DIRECTLY to the families affected by the tornadoes.

Good luck bidding, and thank you for helping!
