Mental Health Research Charity Goal Exceeded! December CS recipients get +1 month!
Dec 31, 2016 - 12:57 PM - by Birched

The RPG Crossing community has now raised $715—we've met our goal to exceed last year's total! That means that all CS members who received a full year membership (purchased or gifted) in December will get +1 months added at the end of the campaign!

The extension of the drive to Jan 5 still stands—and if we hit $1000 raised for charity, I'll give all those folks another extra month!

AND we still have matching funding for over $100 in donations left, so your donations will count double towards charity!

There are three ways to participate:
  1. buy a membership, shirt, and/or card pack through our Indiegogo campaign [comes with a pretty awesome PDF bundle]
  2. buy a CS membership at rpgcrossing.com
  3. donate directly to the BBR Foundation to promote

I've extended the charity and membership drive to Jan 5, but we are running out of time! Help us meet our charity goal!

Reminder: if we hit $706 (and beat last year's total) all CS memberships purchased during the drive will get an extra month!

UPDATE: We are at $545, and have just received an anonymous offer to MATCH the next $200 in donations made through any means to our campaign. So for the next little while, your contributions will count double towards the charity drive!

There are three ways to participate:
  1. buy a membership, shirt, and/or card pack through our Indiegogo campaign [comes with a pretty awesome PDF bundle]
  2. buy a CS membership at rpgcrossing.com
  3. donate directly to the BBR Foundation to promote research to improve the lives of those affected

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Post of the Month Winner Announced!

Wow. We're almost at the end of the year and the RPGX community really outdid itself with November nominations. This was a tough job - so many fantastic posts.

Now, with no further delay: the Post of the Month winner for November 2016 is ... zany!

You can read the winning entry here. Please congratulate zany for this exemplary work.

Zany's post seems pretty simple. But it's the simplicity that really resonated with our judges. An unusual character with an unusual point of view, and it truly stands out in every word of this post. Without being overt or showy, this post gives us a wonderful insight into Jack's personality, his past, his preconceptions, and sets the table for something interesting and transformative to come. Very nice work.

The other nominations for November 2016 can be read here. Each is an exceptional entry and well worth the read.

The PotM contest for December 2016 is going on now. Be sure to nominate your favorite posts from the month of December. And remember - it's your last chance to get in the running for the 2016 Post of the Year, to be awarded in January.
