There were many guests who double dipped if not more just because they liked the lights and the sound...so it was a happy experience

It was nice to have the fixed dollar amount because it cut down on choices for people and it also eliminated any awkwardness

We’ve raised more with the DipJars with voting than we’ve had at any of the past PAX shows we’ve done
— Travis Eriksen, Executive Director

Child's Play, a game industry charity, had a booth at a 4 day gaming convention, PAX East. Each of their four DipJars corresponded to a character from a popular video game franchise.
