A few days ago, we got an email from Jason, who writes The Action Point, asking if we’d help spread the word about the Bagram AFB Gaming Community and help drive some donations. He’s since put up that page and created a process for folks who are interested in helping out, and I’m here to tell you about it.
“Bagram AFB” is Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan, where Jason is currently stationed, and the BAFBGC is the community of gamers out there. They’re gathering materials to run regular sessions of D&D Encounters, and Wizards of the Coast has already donated the entire “season” of Encounters goodies (rock on, WotC!).
What they need now is other stuff, and how they need it is via their Amazon wishlist. According to Jason, this is a lot simpler than dealing with the red tape involved in accepting direct donations.
There’s all sorts of stuff on their wishlist, with gaming goodies priced at $5 on up. Even if you can’t afford much, there’s likely something in your price range if you’re interested.
The Stew has made a donation, and I hope you’ll consider doing the same. We’re a pretty low-pressure outfit here, but when we learn about a good cause we think our readers would want to hear about, we share.
In fact, here’s a little challenge: Can we, the Gnome Stew community, clear the Bagram AFB Gaming Community’s wishlist?
Before you can donate, you’ll need to email Jason for the shipping address; here are the details. If you donate, be sure to mark what you bought as “purchased” on the wishlist so no one else buys it again.
Thanks for reading, and here’s to some happy nights around the gaming table for the Bagram AFB Gaming Community! Come home safe.
