It's for the kids, my dad, and the holidays.
As many of you know, my dad passed away recently and I was having a pretty hard time with it. Some people have asked how they could help or what they could do, and I've finally figured it out.
My dad was born the last of 10 kids, the only one to be born in a hospital, and was plagued with health issues all his life. I can't bring my dad back, and I don't feel I can champion the fight against any one thing that ailed him. And while it's horrible to lose a parent, it must be even worse to lose a child. So instead I'm going to champion the cures and care for sick children. I KNOW my dad would be tickled to see me and hopefully you supporting hospital care for sick kids.
So what am I doing? This year I'm part of a team working for Extra Life charity, and I'm raising money for the Seattle Children's Hospital. Yes, we're playing D&D and helping sick kids at the same time. What can you do? Well, donate to my cause!
But that would be too simple, and the holidays are upon us, and I do have this wealth of gaming stuff around me, so let's put it to good use. I've got some special rewards listed below for anybody who donates to my page any time in the next 24 hours. So help the kids, honor my dad and get some cool stuff all in one!
Donation - Any Amount!
Anybody who donates within the next 24 hours will receive one of promo cards that I have collected over the years. You will get this promo card in addition to whatever donation reward if you donate at a higher level.
Donation - $25
Everybody who donates at the $25 level gets an unopened box of Dungeon Command. Either Curse of Undeath, Blood of Gruumsh, Sting of Lolth or Tyranny of Goblins.
Donation - $50
If you donate at the $50 I'll send you either a Beholder Gift Set or one of the special Holiday Magic cards I've collected over the year. We'll start with Evil Presents, and once I run out of those, we'll move on to other selections.
Donations - $100
I have several unopened booster displays of Magic going back to sets made throughout the last 5-6 years. If you donate at the $100 level, I'll send one to you.
Donations - $150 (4 only)
I have one each of the Christmas miniatures that wizard's has given to employees and Partners (Included in the picture below). If you donate at this level I'll send you one determined randomly.
Donations - $200 (2 only)
I have a couple From the Vault: ???? which I am holding on to for those people who donate at the $200 level or higher. Yes, I'm keeping it a secret, no you won't be disappointed!
So there you have it. I'd like to see if we can at least double my current donations (a not too shabby $600) by this time tomorrow. So please donate and spread the word. And hey, if you don't want to donate for whatever reason, please try to positively affect the life of a sick kid somehow!http://www.extra-life.org/participant/Trevor_DnD
