Support RPG Crossing and a good cause at the same timeDuring last year's drive, we sold 90 the primary way that we support the costs of running RPG CrossingCommunity Supporter memberships to help raise USD$925 towards research to improve the lives of those affected by mental illness. We also contributed $5 from each sale of the awesome Ork t-shirts and postcards and community members made generous direct contributions. In the past three years combined, the RPG Crossing community has donated USD$2730 (USD$3080 if you count the extra 'bang for our buck' that we got the first year when our donations were matched by another generous donor).

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

How it works1 - Effective immediately and continuing until (and including) Sunday, Dec 31, 2017, $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 - I have posted the final t-shirt stock from the last two t-shirt printings (just a few shirts left.) $5 of any shirt purchase will be donated to the Brain and Behaviour Research Foundation until December 31, 2017.

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

Goals1. If we beat 2015's donation amount of USD$705, we will add an extra month to the recipient of every one year Community Supporter membership purchased during the month of December. (Every year until now I've set this goal to beat the previous year's total, but I guess I chickened out this year. I would love to learn that I have too little faith!)

2. If we reach USD$1000 in total donations (including all direct donations and all $5 donations from memberships and shirts) we will add ANOTHER extra month to the recipient of every one year CS purchased during the month of December. (This would also beat last year's $925 total!)

3. TBD if we reach 1) and 2)

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. 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 make your donation here: https://bbrfoundation.donordrive.com...icipantID=7340. You can read the full information on our campaign with BBR Foundation at this link, but it's basically the same as what is written in this post.

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.
