Pakistan Flood Relief Fundraiser

“Several publishers have donated some very cool items to help us raise funds for Doctors Without Borders. The bundle will be available until 10:00 AM EST, Monday, October 25th.

[A]ll of the proceeds from your purchase of the bundles will be donated to DWB for Pakistan aid. Thanks to all the publishers and creators who have donated their creative works to these bundles!”

Pen-and-Paper RPG creators and publishers donated creative works worth around $700 in retail value, and DriveThroughRPG put that bundle up at $25 for their Pakistan Flood Relief fundraiser. Today, around an hour before it was taken down from the site at 10 a.m. EST as scheduled, the counter stood at $61,775. With $25 apiece, that’s about 2,500 donations.

That’s great. Also, it’s quite amazing that there’s still so many pen-and-paper RPG gamers around!
