One of the charities I give to every year is having a fundraiser with matching donations for the next few hours. If you've the ability, a donation could do a lot of good.

"Shanti Bhavan is an all-encompassing residential school that believes every child, regardless of caste or circumstance, deserves a high-quality education and a caring home. Exclusively for children born into India's lowest social and economic class, we provide our students with 17 years of intense intervention - from their first day of school to their first day of work - in order to address extreme discrimination and break the cycle of poverty in a single generation

Challenge
The "untouchable" caste is ignored by the rest of Indian society. Our students come from families surviving on less than $1 a day; they are children of rag-pickers, quarry laborers, and sex-workers. Basic literacy and rudimentary education are insufficient in helping elevate children out of poverty. If the poorest of the poor are to succeed, they require a vigorous academic experience. There should be no glass ceiling for the poor: Shanti Bhavan enables our students to have equal opportunity.

Solution
We provide 300+ students with everything they need to succeed and thrive: a free, holistic education, clothing, medical care, and a caring home. High-quality staff and international volunteers educate our students from the age of 4 to 17 on the most rigorous academic curriculum. The students compete in sports tournaments, study music and dance from Broadway professionals, develop leadership and public speaking skills. We are more than a value-driven community - we are a family.

Long-Term Impact
Shanti Bhavan seeks a quantum change in the trajectory of each child it serves. The school's success is unprecedented- graduating nearly 100% of our secondary school students on to college. Each Shanti Bhavan graduate will earn more in 5 years of work than their parents will earn in a lifetime. Every single graduate now gives back 10%-50% of their salary to their families, communities, and other children in need, creating a powerful multiplicative impact - permanently ending the cycle of poverty"

All the Advanced Adventures (1-35) by Level
I was asked for a list of the AA by level, so I thought I should put one up the blog here. It looks like we've got pretty good coverage, and I think you could work out a campaign with just these published modules. I'd like a few more lower levels (1-3, 2-4)...

The World of Tome of Tomes...?
So I've written over 400 Tome of Tomes (I've really been going thanks to the Patreon supporters!) and I just started thinking that I'm basically organically creating a fantasy world with all its geography, history, and racial relations. So now I'm thinking,...

Word of the century (so far), IMO...

Brandalism. Noun 1) The encroachment of ads, logos, and other types of corporate branding into public and traditionally non-commercial spaces, or the dissemination of corporate messages through methods or mediums not typically used for marketing purposes.

2) The vandalism of public space by commercial entities.

To all my artist friends out there... this video made my non-artist head go all ASPLODY with its beautiful simplicity.... it's a great tip/trick on how to do perspective. I normally wouldn't link to Facebook, but I cant find the video anywhere else. Watch and be amazed!

You can do a lot with only stone-age tech. This guy has a lot of very, very cool videos. Watch 'em and learn.
