RPG a Day: Day 6

Most amazing thing a game group did for their community?

The collections made by Emerald City Gamefest and Big Bad Con for charities at their events.

Gamers are, in my opinion, very giving people.  Maybe its an inherently altruistic streak.  Maybe it’s just the understanding we all develop that if the cleric doesn’t get part of the treasure we aren’t going to get that cure spell when we need it.  Either way, the donations always seem to come in, often in huge lots.  It is a surprise to me that many of the older and more established conventions have not taken advantage of this fact to solicit donations for charity, and I would encourage the managers of these events to consider it for the future.
