GoFundMe For Chuck Wright's Medical Expenses (Frog God Art / Layout Director) - The Tavern Will Match the First $250 Raised by It's Readers

The OSR Community and the readers of The Tavern never amaze me more than when they show their generosity to members of our community in need.

Well, that time has come again and I need to be amazed.

Chuck Wright, one of the Frogs, is in need.
It is with great worry and sadness that I share the news that our friend and our art/layout director at Frog God Games is in surgery today to remove all or part of his foot as a result of complications from diabetes.  
Chuck is a Gulf War veteran who lives outside of Tampa FL. The Veterans Administration hospital in Tampa is his only health insurance.  He currently lives over an hour from this hospital. He has no options for care closer to his home.  
When he gets out of the hospital, he will urgently need personal help (care and food), transportation to and from physical therapy, and income to support him until he is able to work again.  It's possible he may not be able to function in his current living space, so he will need financial help obtaining a handicapped accessible apartment and moving.  
He is scared and alone right now.  We hope everyone in the RPG community reaches out to him with love and supports this appeal. Money won't cure his diabetes or get his foot back, but it could keep him in a home and cared for during rehabilitation from the amputation.  
Please help Chuck by donating generously to this fund.
With gratitude, 
Bill and Krista Webb
Frog God Games
Now, here's what The Tavern is going to do. For each dollar pledged to Chuck's GoFundMe Page by readers of The Tavern by 9PM Eastern, Wednesday, April 27th I'll match those pledges, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $250.

You'll need to post a comment on this thread stating the amount you donated and the name you donated under so I can keep a tally.

Its a worthy cause.


  1. If you've enjoyed a FGG book, chances are Chuck did design and/or layout on that book. On my desk I have Tome of Adventure Design, Monstrosities, and Swords & Wizardry Complete Rulebook, and Mr. Wright had an important hand in all of them. Even $10 would help!

    Erik, you may already be halfway there, looking at some of the people who have already donated and their amounts....

  2. Donated $5 this morning, under the name Jon Caro.

  3. As a long-time fan of Necromancer Games and FGG, I went in for $150. Get well, Chuck! - Dave D

  4. I'm the first $100 anon. I don't know if I can change my name, but the Webbs can confirm it's me since they're the organizers.

  5. $20 anon - can forward the receipt if needed.

  6. $25 Scott Sutherland. ANZAC 2016: Lest We Forget.

    Nice work Tenkar's Tavern! And best of luck to the Chuck.

  7. $20 Anon - Right after Scott Sutherland.

  8. $25 Anon. Right after an amazing donation by a Mr. Redmon.

  9. Just donated $50.00...Emily Dickinson quote...Tony T.

  10. I donated $20 under Timothy Baker. I also shared the GoFundMe link on G+ to boost the signal. Thanks for your generosity!

  11. I donated $20 under Jonathan Biedron. Thanks.
