Gamers Donate to Help Haiti

This morning I got a notice from one of the bloggers whose RSS feed I subscribe to, that OneBookShelf  was running a promotion through their sites and wherein you could donate money that would go to Doctors without Borders to assist in the Aide for the victims in Haiti.

To create an incentive for donations they asked their various publishers if there was a product that could be offered up for those that donated, and by the time all was said and done—for a $20 donation you could Download a bundle package worth $1,481.31.

I'd been thinking of a way to donate to the relief effort—thinking that I would do it through my church. So I donated and started downloading PDF books. The response was huge and within a couple hours the site went down. A couple hours later the site was back up and they are asking those that have donated to wait a couple days before downloading. As of this writing a total of  $23,040 has been donated through RPGNow and DriveThruRPG.

Also, OneBookShelf has it set up for people to danate $5 or $10 with no incentive, this offer appears to be available through their other sites DriveThruComics and WarGameVault, and as of this writing  $3,480 has been donated through those sites.

For the Curious, The Game Products You May Download for a $20 donation are the Following: (I'll Highlight the ones that caught my eye).
