Support RPG Crossing and a good cause at the same timeOver past drives, the RPG Crossing community has donated over USD$9000 to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. This year, we are trying to beat last year's record fundraising amount and raise over $3100 to support mental illness research, "to bring the joy of living to those affected by mental illness – those who are ill and their families and friends."

You can track our progress through announcements and information that will be posted at, and through our event page for the BBR Foundation.

How it works1 - Effective immediately (Dec 1) and continuing until (and including) Thursday, Dec 31, 2020, $5 of every new or renewed $25 one year Community Supporter membership will be donated to support mental illness research, via the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. The foundation does its work by awarding research grants. 100% of your contributions for research are invested in research thanks to the generous support of two family foundations which cover the BBR Foundation's operating expenses.

2 - You can make a direct donation to the BBR Foundation through our event page for the BBR Foundation.

3 - You can donate $25 or more to the running of RPG Crossing and the site will donate $5 of that to the BBR Foundation.

Goals and GoodiesIf we beat $3100, we will add an extra month to the recipient of every one year Community Supporter membership purchased during the month of December.

Also -- there are lots of participant rewards lined up, some going to all drive participants and some of which will be released for limited periods during the drive. More information on those soon!

FAQWhat is a Community Supporter account? We are committed to providing an excellent community to all members, but Community Supporters get some perks. Some of these are: a mobile style for easier reading on smaller devices, more private message space, a larger avatar, extensive folder management in games, the Community Supporter badge, access to the Community Supporter forum and its games & wish thread & private threads, nearly automatic game approval, and the warm feeling of knowing that you've helped keep the community going. For a more complete run down and chart, please visit the Community Supporter help page.

How to purchase a membership for someone else: If you'd like to buy a CS membership for a friend, buy one on your account and send a pm to Birched -- he will transfer the year to the account of your choosing. Please indicate the exact username of the recipient, and whether you'd like the gift to be anonymous.

How to purchase a membership with no credit card or PayPal: Credit card purchases can be made through PayPal even without an account (and if you don't want an account, don't fall for their attempt to get you to make one after you enter your payment information), but if that's not an option, memberships can also be purchased by cheque or Transferwise. Please send a pm to Birched for details.

Can I make a donation to BBR Foundation through the site without buying a membership: Yes. Please donate through our campaign with BBR Foundation at this link. Donations of $10 will qualify for participant rewards. If you are interested in these, please include your site username in the comment box so that we can contact you at to deliver rewards.

If you've been planning to buy a CS membership for yourself or someone else on the site, this is a great time to do that and also give to a worthwhile cause. Almost all of us have been touched by these illnesses in one way or another, either in our families, amongst our friends, or even here on the site (some of those unexplained absences of PBP players, perhaps?)

I will report back and let you know how we are doing. Wishing you all all the best for the holiday season,

~ Mark / Birched

P.S. If you are a CS, you can hide the graphic I will be adding to the header in the same way that you can hide the Twitter and Google+ buttons.
