I’ve spent the last few days with a weird stomach bug. I’m about over it, but it was so bad Monday that we had to cancel my wife’s PT. There was just no way I could drive her over to the hospital. This has really cut into my blogging, although I have managed to answer posts on the message board. Thankfully, donations have continued to trickle in even if I did drop off the face of the planet. As I write this, we are only $208 from the third goal of $2250 (and less than $1400 from the total we need). Assuming we can get at least $205 in donations by noon Sunday, I’ll hold the drawing for the Third giveaway items (photocopies of Domesday Book issues 4 – 12 and nice copies of the TSR Lankhmar and Divine Right board games) Sunday evening after my Sunday game. Anyone donating by noon Sunday (CST) will be in this second drawing (assuming at least $205 more is raised). In addition I have another DrivethruRPG gift certificate to give away and a few Steam game keys.
Now is a great time to donate to the Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive to help us keep our house and to get in on the third drawing as well as the future drawings described at the link above. Click that link for more information on the drive and to see the large list of items being given to lucky donors.
The Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive is on. Every $10 donated gives you one chance to win one or more of more than 40 non-TSR D&D items published in the late 1970s and early 1980s. You can see the complete list of giveaway items and read more about this fund drive in this post: Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive (with lots of Third Party D&D Giveaway Items). This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund. All donations will be used to pay the property taxes on our house as we had to use the money saved for this to pay for more medical treatment for my wife’s cancer and other medical problems treatment related bills (see the linked post above for more info), send a donation in any amount — small or large — to me via Paypal.Thank you!
We need to raise about $3400 by the end of January, as of this post this drive has raised $2045. We only have a bit over a week until our property taxes are due, so donations are really needed now and are very much appreciated. Thanks to everyone who donates, spreads the word, or thinks positive thoughts for us!
