We raised over $1100 for The Wayne Foundation! Wooo!

TWF_RPG01

Over the last few weeks of March, The Wayne Foundation Charity RPG bundle was up for sale at DriveThruRPG. 100% of the profits of this bundle went directly to The Wayne Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating child prostitution in the US.

Over the course of 2 weeks, 71 bundles were sold, for a retail value of $1775.00. Of that, $1153.75 was given over to me as profit.

As of this morning, that money has been handed over to The Wayne Foundation in the form of a lump sum donation.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who purchased this bundle, all the authors and publishers who donated their products and OneBookshelf (i.e. DriveThruRPG) for hosting this! A huge thanks go out to Jamie and everyone at The Wayne Foundation itself for all the hard work they’re putting into other people’s lives, every day.

If you missed out on the bundle, it’s not too late to head on over to TWF and make a donation on your own.

This year we did sell fewer bundles and raise less money than last year. I’m not entirely sure why this is and I’ll be looking at this and figuring things out for a while to come, I think. It could be the economy in general, or the fact that some items in this year’s bundle were also in last year’s bundle.

I worked hard at getting the word out this year and the response to the bundle hasn’t been as explosive as it had in the past few years via social media.

I have some ideas for next year, and I’m thinking that this should get a bit bigger, perhaps more than I can handle by myself. So I’ll also be looking for a volunteer to help me coordinate this whole thing next year. And perhaps some prize support in the form of physical prizes. Maybe even a presence at a convention or two as well. We’ll have to see!

Until then, thanks again to everyone who helped out, contributed and purchased!

  1. I found the bundle via your post on Google+. What drew me to it was Soppets and Mi Gato Se Incendia for the kids. We are new to Role Playing but I have created some “quests” for them around the home using household items. My goal when I start home schooling in August is to try and gamify their education. They are already responding wonderfully to boardgames and roleplaying so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

    Otherwise I can’t help with your evaluation regarding the lack of response. Good Luck in your quest!

    PS: Omg, third times a charm for this captcha! Capslock would help >.<

    1. Well I’m glad you enjoyed my games in that bundle! A&C is a big hit among kids, and I’ve heard of it being used in home schooling as well.
