Friends of The Closet Gamer over at the Gaming & BS RPG Podcast have challenged the gaming community at large to come together to help the folks down in Texas who have been affected by the terrible wrath of Hurricane Harvey. A few of us in the RPG/Tabletop Gaming Podcast community have agreed to help the region by sending 100% of Patreon donations during the month of September 2017 to the Houston Food Bank.
Head over to my Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/the_closetgamer) page and select the reward tier #GamersvsHarvey. The default amount is $1.00, but feel free to increase your contribution to whatever you can! At the end of the month once rewards have been collected I remove the #GamersvsHarvey pledge level so you aren't billed again should you forget to cancel your pledge. Of course you can always sign up for a regular support level if you want to continue supporting The Closet Gamer after September; those funds will also go to the #GamersvsHarvey cause.
You can also show your support by using the hashtag #GamersvsHarvey, sharing this or any other related post on social media, or sending your donations directly to another organization of your choosing.
As someone who has family and friends living in the affected areas, I thank you personally for your help. The gaming community is an amazing group of people full of compassion and generosity. Together we can make a difference!
