RPGers raise over $16K for fellow gamer's brain surgery

Posted by WJWalton on Wed 17 of Oct., 2012 09:00 PDT
I'm a bit behind with this one, but it's still a fantastic story of roleplayers helping others - a group of gamers on Reddit are crowdfunding a benefit for a fellow gamer and talented artist who had a brain tumor removed. So far, they have collected over $16,000, and there are still eight days (as I write this) left on the indiegogo project.

Read the full story, including links to the Reddit thread and indiegogo page, here.
