Monday of this week OneBookShelf sites DriveThruRPG.com, DriveThruComics.com, and RPGNow.com announced two special bundles being sold to raise money for Doctors Without Borders’ efforts to provide medical aid to the people of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab provinces of Pakistan where floods have devastated the local people.
The first bundle is a collection of role playing games, supplements, and accessories in PDF format totaling $724.46 in value and that is available for download for $25 through DriveThruRPG and RPGNow. The second bundle is a collection of comics in PDF format totaling $173.91 in value which is available for download for $10 through DriveThruComics. These bundles will be available until Monday, October 25th 2010.
These titles have all been donated by the publishers and every penny raised by this event goes to Doctors Without Borders’ work in Pakistan.
Not only is this event raising money for a good cause, but the material being donated is quality stuff. Even if you do not use many of the products included within these bundles you will still get your money’s worth out of just one or two of the products being donated. I myself purchased the RPG bundle and have already found five awesome titles that together would have cost me three times the bundle’s price if purchased separately. The comics bundle is next on my list. This really is a win-win situation for the charity and the consumer.
This is not the first time that these sites have offered bundles in order to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. Earlier this year the “Gamers Helping Haiti” bundle offered a similar bundle for $20 that resulted in over $100,000 being donated to Doctors Without Borders to help with relief efforts following the devastation caused by an earthquake that literally leveled most of the country’s infrastructure.
