OneBookShelf, which runs RPGNow and DriveThruRPG (among other sites), is doing something fantastic to help Haiti: donate $20 to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti relief, and you’ll receive a bundle of gaming PDFs worth over $1,400.
Honestly, if you have $20 you can afford to donate, this is an incredibly easy decision.
Here’s the link: Gamers Help Haiti $20 donation.
OBS has already raised over
$3,200 $7,000 $13,000 $37,000 $42,000 $75,000 $99,000 $111,000 for Haiti earthquake relief, and with oodles of RPG publishers donating their products to this Gamers Help Haiti bundle, they’ll hopefully raise thousands more. OBS is also matching donations at the $5 and $10 level, which is fantastic.
Thanks to OneBookShelf for coming up with this idea and executing it so brilliantly, and for matching donations; thanks as well to the many publishers who are giving away their hard work as part of this bundle — and thanks to everyone who already has, or is about to, donate to the relief effort!
Update: Early on on 1/20, the sheer amount of gamer love broke DriveThru’s servers. Their server issues are now resolved, and donations are going through just fine. If you tried with a credit card and your order seemed screwy, it didn’t go through — try again!
