TL;DR - Res agent really down on his luck, lost job, phone stolen, broken ribs. Small donations please or spread the news to get him back in the game!
We've all heard it said that bad things often happen to good people. A local agent in Toronto called Ian (aka Tathar) is one of the good guys. He’s a very dedicated player, having been involved in the game since it was in the Beta stage. Day or night, rain or shine, he’s out there for the team playing with his heart and soul.
Ian has been involved in a string of unfortunate events lately. Not long ago, while playing the game one day he witnessed a suicide – a young girl jumped from her balcony and landed right in front of him. He also recently lost his job. And on a week ago last Friday afternoon at 4PM, while Ian was playing in a local area wiping the kermits from the map, a stranger approached him. The person faked interest in the game until he was close enough to grab Ian's phone and then ran. To add injury to insult, when he tried to pursue the thief, he fell and has suffered cracked ribs and abrasions.
Needless to say, he didn't get his phone back. He's also fallen into a bit of a depression with all this, which is breaking our hearts.
I would love to show Ian that there are still good people in the world, and that he is part of the best faction in the world!
We have set up a Paypal account and Google wallet for anyone who wishes to help him out towards a new phone to replace the one that was stolen. Any amount at all, even $1 will go a ways towards showing him what a fantastic community he is a part of.
The address for both is firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have a bitcoin donation for those who prefer that.
Thank you all for reading this, even if you can't donate please pass along to those that can.
