    Time Event
    Haiti charity total
    As of the end of January, Drivethru RPG raised $178,900.00 for Doctors Without Borders. This is actual money donated to the charity, after deduction of credit card fees and other unavoidable expenses. The actual amount donated must have been about 5% higher. My modest contribution was inclusion of Diana: Warrior Princess in their $20 games bundle, which raised most of the money, but I don't think I can claim much credit for the final total; the nominal value of the bundle was just under $1500 and it included several other RPGs, not least the Serenity (Firefly) RPG.

    This implies that there are probably at least eight thousand gamers prepared to spend $20 to help a good cause, or interested enough in the hobby to know a bargain when they see it. I'm VERY encouraged.
