PostSubject: Help Haiti AND get something BACK!   Sat Jan 30, 2010 10:06 am

I do NOT work for DriveThruRPG, they do not about me (or Death Squads) and this is NOT an official Death Squads thing. I'm just sharing. Wink

See the announcement from DriveThruRPG is below. Why do WE care? Well, the offer for $20 you get access to over 200 titles worth over $1,000 retail. While most of them are RPGs (good one too!) what REALLY got my eye were the following, paper/cardstock terrain from WorldWorksGames! Read about it on this thread.
  • Deadly Encounters Combo (Price: $6.99)
  • DungeonLinX: Dragon God (Price: $16.99)
  • Uncharted Space: Sathrican Homeworld (Price: $16.99)
  • UrbanMayhem: Streets of Mayhem (Price: $16.99)
  • Wormhole (Price: $25.00)
WorldWorksGames' product details. Right there is an $83 value. It also includes 7 paper/cardstock terrain from Fat Dragon worth $47. See details here. All in all, GREAT value for a great cause!

Gamers Help Haiti! DriveThruRPG Offers a Mega-Bundle to Spur Donations

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

DriveThruRPG announced a major incentive to the roleplaying gamer community today to incite donations to aid in rescue and recovery in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Called the "Gamers Helping Haiti Bundle," the product includes over a hundred products totaling over $1000.00 in retail value. For a simple donation of $20 - all of which goes to Doctors Without Borders to support their post-earthquake Haiti relief efforts - RPG fans can have this once-in-a-lifetime collection of gaming products.

DriveThruRPG already had opportunities to donate up and running within a day of the disaster. When publishers began asking how they could support the cause, the bundle was created to be an all-inclusive shared effort. Those who donated at the lesser levels won't be left out, however; gamers who have already donated $5 or $10 will be receiving a special coupon code that lets them pay the difference from their initial donation to get the bundle.

"We are humbled by the generosity of both our customers and our publishers," said Sean Patrick Fannon, Marketing and Communications Manager for DriveThruRPG, "all of whom have stepped up at this time of terrible tragedy to offer aid to a desperate people. We are also very proud to facilitate these collective efforts, providing the necessary tools and technology to bring it all together."

More than tools and tech, though, DriveThruRPG is really putting their money where their mouth is, so to speak. "We have always believed in the power of giving and sharing to make the world a better place," said Steve Wieck, President and co-owner of the site. "To that end, we are matching funds with everyone who's making a straight donation at the $5 and $10 level."

There is no set date for terminating the donation efforts, though the bundle will only be available until the end of January.

Anyone wishing more information about this effort, or about DriveThruRPG overall, should contact Sean Patrick Fannon at sean@onebookshelf.com.

Can't wait until someone invents a time machine so I can go to the specific day in the past that I volunteered for this, so I can kick my own ass.

Support Bacteria; it is the ONLY culture some people have!
Since I ask "What do you think?" to all Staff, I have included it here to save time.
