Gamers Helping Gamers

As we dig into our pockets to help those in Haiti we also have the opportunity to help a family closer to home.  Our gaming home.

I can't imagine how much cancer treatment would cost here in the States without health insurance.  Well, yes I can, as apparently it tops $100k in some cases.  Or in the case or a particular gamer's wife.

I myself had Hodgkin's Disease (cancer lite as I like to call it) and it kept me out of work for 11 months between chemo and rads.  My bills?  Some basic co-pays.  My job even paid me my full salary the 11 months I was out.

I was lucky.  We, as a gaming community, need to be able to help those of us in need.  We've raised money for ENWorld, raised money for the Staff of ENWorld, sending over $35k and counting via RPGNow to help those in Haiti... here's our chance to help one of ours.

No donation is to small.

Heck, you even get a PDF copy of The Microlite74 2.0 Special Edition,  a 60-page PDF designed to be printed in booklet format from Adobe Acrobat.

Old School gaming and the gift of giving.  Nice combination.
