Gamers Making a Difference

Today I saw something happen on the interwebs that really helps restore faith in humanity. The Dork Tower and Munchkin artist, John Kovalic, decided to help out a friend of his who runs an orphanage in Haiti. They needed two water tanks at $350 a piece. So John requested help on his site and Twitter account. Money came pouring in and two tanks were paid for in 10 minutes! Over the next hour around $2300 came in and 100% of the funds will go to the orphanage. What's even cooler is that the money will be sent today and the tanks bought this week.

It's great to be a part of a community that will drop their dice, reach into their wallet and readily help those in need.

John took time to respond to the outpouring and it can be seen here.
