Last February, Gaians banded together to help raise money for Haiti following the devastating earthquake.

That same charitable spirit continues in the wake of the BP Oil Spill, which is wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast

Toxic Drop

and threatening millions of animals great and small, not to mention the health and livelihoods of those living in the region.

The outside world has taken notice of your fundraising activities, and we’ve collected a bunch of examples. Check it out!

Thank you guys for making a difference in the real world as you do in the Gaia world. We thank you!

  • Comments Off on Where in the World are Gaia Cash Cards?

Much like the well loved game show (and computer games) of the 90s, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, we’re sure some of you are wondering the same about Gaia Cash Cards. The great news is, very soon you will be able to find Gaia Cash Cards outside of the continental U.S.! That’s right, you will be able find them in 7-11, Best Buy, Walmart, and Future Shop in Canada!! We don’t have an exact drop date yet, but they’re coming soon. We’ll post an update as soon as we hear back from customs. 😉

Other news on Gaia Cash Cards…we’ve had a few changes to distribution within the U.S. Unfortunately, Best Buy is no longer carrying our cards and 7-11 is discontinuing $10 cards. If you happen to find $10 cards in 7-11, you’re in luck! They will continue selling whatever stock they have, but once they run out, that’s it. The good news is, 7-11 will continue selling $25 cards. And, don’t be alarmed if you can’t find Gaia Cash Cards at Walmart checkout stands. They just moved them to the electronics section instead.

More to come to the U.S. — soon, Game Stop and Coast Guard Exchange will be selling Gaia Cash Cards too. Both stores will carry $25 cards, except Coast Guard Exhange in Puerto Rico will also carry $10 cards.

This is totally random, but some of the Gaia Staff were spotted opening and investigating a very strange fruit. It’s not only strange, but it’s stinky. Who likes to eat stinky food?? Not me! I’m not going to tell you who I am, but still…I wouldn’t dare eat something that smells bad/funny/gross. Check out this video to safely explore the strange, stinky fruit and watch some brave Gaia Staffers try it for the first time.

Crescento, the fearless airship captain from zOMG is in search of the perfect captain’s cap and he turned to Gaians for help and you really delivered! We received hundreds of amazing Captain’s Cap submissions. Crescento was hard-pressed to narrow it down to a mere 12 for you to vote on. Gaians are truly a creative and fun group! Here’s a preview of the final 12 Captain’s Caps. Click here to vote for your favorite one!
