thing I love most about this community is how close knit it is. Initially a
place where all ages, backgrounds, and personalities have come together around
a common interest, this community has grown to become a place where we
genuinely care and support one another. And now one of our community members
could use some of that support.
Most of you probably know @john (RocketJohn) from the site - either from one of the many community events or from the halls of RTX. He is always there if you need him, offering a helping hand, a place to crash, and a friendly face; but right now he and his family are hurting.
After their father spent two weeks in the hospital battling stage 4 colon cancer they received some shocking and terrible news. There is nothing more they can do. Their father, Jeffrey, would be sent home into hospice care where he would spend the remainder of his limited days. The family has been working hard in the time they have left to make one of Jeffrey's fondest wishes come true. He shared a dance with each of his daughters in wedding finery, made some fond memories and said some goodbyes, but the family is still dealing with hospital bills and medical costs in the remaining days.
We would like to help alleviate some of the financial stress from John and his family as they go through this troubling time, but we need your help to do it.
This Sunday, February 26th, at 1 pm Central we are going to be hosting a Charity D&D game called "Heroes of the Heart". We will be streaming live on Glib Shark's Twitch channel until approximately 8 pm and encourage you all to tune in and contribute if you can.
Any donation is welcome and appreciated and can be deposited on the GoFundMe page they have established here: https://www.gofundme.com/daddydaughtersdance
But wait, there's more!
If you would like to donate and participate in the game, we have several options for you:
1. Donations of $5 will grant The Blessing of the Gods, which allows a player of your choice to roll with advantage. Blessings can be purchased in bundles ($5, $10, $15, etc) and you can specify how many blessings you would like to buy and for whom.
2. $13 invokes a Smite of the Gods, which grants our all-mighty GM, @OboeCrazy advantage on her rolls! Smites can also be purchased in multiple increments, but who would want to smite us? We're adorable!
Once you donate, please comment on this journal to let us know what you would like and for whom! You can even mix and match $10 for 2 blessings and $13 for one smite equals one $23 donation. Or, you can donate any amount above $5 and choose only one item, or none, and still receive our eternal gratitude.
Please spread the word and join us this Sunday for an epic, one-off adventure.
