I suppose I’ve reached that point in my career as an internet celebrity (ha, I wish) in which I start supporting fundraisers and using my vast power and influence to get my fans to rally up and do the right thing. Well, at least hear me out, because have I got a great deal for you.
As you might have heard, New Zealand’s city of Christchurch was recently devastated with a 6.3 magnitude earthquake. Nearly one hundred people have been confirmed dead at this point, and about two hundred people are still missing, leading New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key to dub February 22, 2011 as the nation’s darkest day. This is a national emergency for the small island-country, and they can use all the help they can get in recovering from this disaster. This is where you guys come in:
DriveThruRPG.com, the largest online store for new and vintage RPGs, has teamed up with the New Zealand Red Cross to raise funds for the earthquake relief. For only $20 you can purchase a Role Play Game bundle containing nearly $340 worth of RPGs; that’s nearly 50 RPGs for an the simple price of $20, and all the money is going directly to the New Zealand Red Cross. Alternatively, if you’re not interested in all this RPG crap, you can simply directly donate money to the funds.
I personally think this is a great way to help out; even if you’re not concerned with the disaster in New Zealand, just think of the amazing deal you’re getting with all these amazing games. I’m not too crazy about getting so many games that I could never finish, since I’m not a huge RPG fan, but I didn’t hesitate at the offer and the chance to do what I could to help out. It’s cheap, and it’s going to a great cause, so what’s stopping you?
