    Great idea! I have been doing this the last few days, and it is a good feeling. I have a few low level friends that I have helped to reach the 2k mark, and I have been dropping around 300+ eggs in their towns. My goal is to help them get to the baseball stadium, which is what everybody was real excited about before the event, and the boost to their income will probably help them in the long run. I can't really pick up other needy cases and be able to do this, and am almost maxed out anyway.

    I get a few eggs in my town every day, and may make a hedge sign telling visitors to give their eggs to other players, but have to make it short and sweet, and fit it into my landing space. I don't really need more snakes at this point.

    Random eggs of kindness. I like it.

    I'm currently scaling my egg drops so the people who are lowest get the most. One of my people started last week so they are getting about 30 of my 100 eggs each day. Once I have all the people I know in real life finished I'll start adding people from here and giving eggs. I

    I really hope once people have finished they really help the people on their lists as much as possible and then other people from here who ask for help.

    Who's to say that people haven't done (or doing) this already?

    I was going to put this up closer to the end so I could stroke my ego with a larger list, but I'll put this up now in hopes it inspires others. I have been gifting a serious number of eggs with very little in return. I've received an average of 7 eggs a day from others since the beginning. My partial list of members that I have contributed to(I am withholding names whom I am still friends with to keep myself anonymous) and the number of eggs they got.

    Congrats to the following people:
    lazyumberto(hey that's you!)--1000+

    Yes, that's about 15,000 eggs(not counting the names of people I am currently friended with or the people that received a normal amount of daily egg giving of 1-10eggs). None of these were trades. In fact, I unfriended most right after giving the eggs so they couldn't give any back. Most people on the list were chosen at random from the add me threads. Some because they posted of hardship. and a few(like you) got eggs for being clever. I estimate I will be dropping 4-5000 more eggs before the end(I don't have much incentive to egg as much now).

    How the heck am I doing this?
    1. I have been playing 12-18 hours a day, everyday; over multiple accounts since the start of WD.(I have NO life)
    2. Trade with yourself. Finding a buddy is nice, but some people take too long. Wasting your time.
    3. I have purchased premium items, namely the license and the snake logs(other stuff is worthless) .
    4. I've been keeping my towns small and empty. Ugly as it may be, it makes hunting faster and reduces problems with crashes and stuttering. I'm a massive house farmer on 1 account(1500 blue houses) but removed them for WD
    5. Friend people with little towns and low levels. Looking at nicely decorated level27 towns are nice, but not for getting snakes. Little towns mean its easier to find snakes and again less crash issues. I had massive friend turnover in the beginning because I would send out hundreds of invites then dump them if their towns were not ideal. Choose friends with the intention of whacking snakes, not getting eggs.

    What most of you that are begging for eggs don't realize is how much time consuming it is to drop a substantial amount of eggs. That's why you don't get that much and that's why you need to focus on getting snakes instead of receiving eggs. And if you are going to beg for eggs, make things easy for us by clearing a section out of your town.

    Now for the losers list. These are people that I selected to receive at least 100 eggs, but could not because they unfriended me or did not respond to my invite(ha,ha):

    lazyumberto WHAT?(I was going to go back and completely blanket your town, but you unfreinded me :( With the space you had, that would have been another 2000, maybe more.)

    You, sir, are like a guardian angel.

    So, a couple of things. Apologies that you were unfriended. As I explained in my main claim-to-fame thread, I was (and still am) having issues with Origin. Somehow Origin let me accept friend requests from more than 100 accounts and now it's screwing things up when I visit friends. Sometimes it locks me out and crashes, other times it scrolls through the town without letting me tap on anything. Sometimes it shows friends Springfield I can select but does not show their profile (ie. ghost friends?). This instability forced me to have to cut my list. I did so arbitrarily (since I didn't know who left and did not leave eggs) and hoped if I pared my list down enough I'd regain my stability. It worked to an extent. I'm still having issues but not as severe thankfully.

    Regarding, you... thank you for revealing yourself and revealing your status as the mystery donor. It is your unexpected gift of 1000+ eggs that blew me away. I waited for a PM or something for someone to take credit after I posted about it. You did not and did not expect anything in turn. That is a TRUE act of kindness.

    And it was not a waste.

    Since it was that very act that inspired me to make the same Pledge here and inspire others to do the same. Call it Pay-It-Forward, karma, generosity, whatever motivation people need, it's a great way to share the wealth and make sure we continue the egg dropping even after our prize goal is complete.

    What can I say? I'm touched that you took an incredible amount of time to drop so many eggs in my Springfield. And it's been on my mind ever since. I'm racing to the 12,500 (about 2k more to go) so I can do what you do and surprise a lot of people with some kindness...

    Thank you.

    I've just started the game, and likely won't be getting the really expensive rewards... But any extra eggs I'm more than happy to take. :)

    This community is awesome!

    This is what i think everyone should have done all along.

    When visiting a friends town and whacking the 5 or 10 snakes they should have left all the eggs that they got in the town right away.

    you would not be getting huge amounts all at once but there would be a constant supply of 2 to 3 eggs being placed there.
    This would have been the most fair for everyone.

    I'm sure I'm not the most in need. I just got to 6100 snakes a few minutes ago. Any help would be appreciated. I see a lot of traffic in my town with building helps but very few eggs. I play daily and as soon as I top 12500 I will dumping every egg I get to those who need it.

    I'm a bit behind with about 4000 snakes. My current neighbors have only been giving about 2 eggs a day. Not much. I do have about 400 eggs stashed at the moment from visiting towns today if anyone would like to conduct a trade or make a neighbor agreement. Add me Dragnflytattoo. Thanks guys!

    What is the purpose of this thread?

    Is it another add-me?
    Is it for egg pacts/egg buddies?

    Or is to give eggs away and expect nothing in return?

    I'm seeing all sorts of posts in here that make it difficult to figure out what to do with this thread. We are in the process of re-organizing and I like the idea of this thread. We may start it over and make sure to remove all threads that do not follow the expressed purpose of this thread.

    There are other ones for exchanges/trades.
