Gamers Helping Haiti  

See, this is one of the things I’ve been forgetting to post about.

Drive Thru RPG has gotten together with approximately one zillion game designers and they’re offering an unbeatable package: Donate $20 to Doctors Without Borders through them, and get $1400 worth of RPG downloads in exchange.

Furthermore, DTRPG are matching $5 and $10 donations, if you can’t afford the $20 download donation. The fundraising drive has brought in a mind-boggling $93,500 so far (I don’t know if that includes the matching funds or not, but I’m not sure it matters: it’s a hell of a lot of money), and I’m sort of expecting it’ll break $100K before morning.

If you’re at all inclined to donate through them, let me sweeten the pot just a little: I will send advanced copies of DEMON HUNTS, book 5 of the Walker Papers, to the first dozen people who donate and email me their receipt (to cemurphyauthor@gmail.com).

For a time frame, I expect to get copies of DEMON HUNTS around mid-April, so if that’s correct you’d be getting the book about a month, perhaps slightly more, before it comes out in the bookstores.

Isn't it? They've brought in over $100K now, too. Just wow.

My husband pointed me at DTRPG's thing last night, and I don't think I even caught everything that was on the list. Just stunning.

Gamers are awesome.

Sent email. Things I can't resist: gaming stuff I can give to friends, and a book I'd happily read anyway.

Just emailed you too! :) This is totally my favorite series -- already donated, but had to do it again for a chance at this :) (I'm chishiotennyo at gmail, if it matters!)

That is so awesome! Both you and them and gamers and the whole thing. Will go donate now and anticipate pouring rpgs onto Trip and Ken's heads :)

oOo. I'll be donating (again) and e-mailing you shortly :)
