Just to update, I got my email telling me I could start downloading yesterday afternoon. A few days delay seems reasonable given the huge interest in this, and it seems to have raised quite a bit of $. USD

Possibly the Greatest Event in Gamer Charity History!

Gamers Helping Haiti

Two days after the devastating first earthquake struck the heart of Haiti, we put up a couple of donation buttons - $5.00 USD and $10.00 USD, which we agreed to match. Our publishers began asking us for a way for them to put their products up to encourage more sales. We constructed a bundle product, expecting a few publishers would put a few products in, and we'd make a few thousand dollars, maybe.

We had no idea.

As of this writing, we've collected over $149,000.00 USD

We've never seen anything like it. No one in the tabletop RPG industry has. Dozens of publishers, 180 products, all worth almost $1,500.00 USD. Trust us, many more publishers wanted in after we started, but with the intense surge that literally crashed our servers, there was no way.

With the Gamers Help Haiti Mega Bundle, we discovered a great power in our culture. A power to help and to heal. Gamers are legion, and we are good people. Each and every one of you should be proud.

Take a look at the press release and the list of products. And if you're going to donate, do it soon. January 31st is the deadline.

We, the fine folks of Doctors Without Borders, and the people of Haiti thank you all.
