TD Gives Thanksgiving ACS 8k Benefit Auction (93%) - $855 raised so far! 3 months 1 day ago #13

Hi all!

I may be new around here, but I've been lurking around True Dungeon for awhile thanks to my involvement with other games and publishers at Gen Con and other shows. The community here has been pretty awesome (if we've shared PMs, I'm specifically referring to you, YES, YOU!) and when I saw Casey's auction with the benefits going to the American Cancer Society, I knew that I wanted to chip in somehow. I mean, bids are nice but I wanted to do more!

So, I sent a message and offered to add one of my early adventures as a reward for everyone that bids. I did this because:
  • The ACS and Extra Life are my two chosen charities. Big props to both, and I do what I can for those that need them.
  • It's still spooky season (nevermind that it's now November 1), and Window to the Past is a horror adventure. Vibes of Alien, The Thing, and some other things. I don't want to spoil it, but it's a pretty chilling story that spotlights the characters.
  • This isn't about the money. It's about giving where one can, and where one should.

I hope you're all kicking butt doing whatever you're doing, and that you continue to welcome people like me ;)

Thank you Alan for doing this for us and it's so COOL having you in the community! There is a passion here for helping others that is not often seen in other gaming communities. One thing I love to see is the mutual desire to enjoy our passions in various ways together. Sharing our unique contributions to the larger PRG community we love to share. Having you offer up your talents for us to enjoy is an outstanding contribution, its a great reward, and promotes a stellar cause! It brings us all together much more! Can't wait to check out the module and run it for some friends! B)

The ACS and Extra Life are dear to many of us as well. Cancer SUCKS! Let's fight it together!

Just something I dug up today to encourage you to join many of the others here that are supporting the American Cancer Society though either bidding on items in this auction or just straight up donating directly.

My mother lost her battle with lung cancer and she was not a smoker. Here is some cool info that made me very appreciative that the ACS exists and how it's a benefit to the fight...

"The outlook is more promising than ever for lung cancer at all stages of disease. In recent years, more people with lung cancer are being diagnosed when the cancer is at an early stage and living longer as a result.

The rate of localized-stage disease diagnosis increased by 4.5% yearly from 2014 to 2018, while there were steep declines in advanced disease diagnoses. The result was an overall increase in 3-year survival rates. In 2004, 21 out of 100 people diagnosed with lung cancer were living 3 years after their diagnosis. By 2018, that number had risen to 31 out of 100 people.

Increased survival is also largely due to improvements in:

Tests to diagnose lung cancer
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
Updates to pathologic staging
Drugs that target the most common gene mutations in lung cancer"


The ACS is instrumental is providing funds to researchers and organizations that further these initiatives in the war against cancer.

It’s time to cast your vote!!!

Welcome to our most recent TD Gives micro-auction to support the ACS. For the next 48 hours we will be auctioning off a Charm of the Elements!!! That’s right, a very limited edition token can be yours with 100% of the proceeds for this token going directly to the ACS. This token gives you the option to choose so choose wisely!

Same rules as this ACS auction. PM me with bids. This micro-auction for the one token ends on Thursday November 10th at 8:30am MST.

Don’t forget to bid early and often…and don’t forget to vote today!! (Early, but…not often)

Current winning bid = $205

Hope you all got the chance to get out and vote yesterday. As expected, we won't know all the results for some time yet. In my own congressional district there is a very close race we are watching that could take some weeks if not months to figure out.

But I digress...

Exercise your right to BID and let's get this item pushed into the stratosphere! 100% of the proceeds from the Charm of the Elements will go to the ACS so bid it up friends! Auction ends at 8:30am tomorrow morning.

The micro-auction for the Charm of the Elements is coming to a close. You have just over 30 minutes to get those bids in and snipe this fancy treasure up...

Hot diggity dog!! We've now managed to raise over $1000 for the ACS and the main auction is not even over. PLUS, we have some surprises coming our way as the holiday season ramps up. SO, keep an eye out!

And, keep bidding on the main auction. We are under $400 left for it to fund.

Congrats to sweet little Vezzy (The young and adorable budding seeress of the troupe) who cast her vote and won the Charm of the Elements token! All $205 will go directly to the American Cancer Society!!

Happy Veteran's Day to all those who serve or have served! We appreciate your gift to us all!!!

I wanted to say that we are slowly creeping towards funding of the main auction. As you can, take a look and find that we have plenty of room to push this auction over the funding goal and give back even more!!! Dig deep friends. :)

Also, next week will bring a fun little side-quest... what is it?

What could it be?
A hint maybe?
Tri your luck and see
For the answer all to see...

:whistle:

“Tri” quest - sweet you’re giving away a Ring of Three Wishes 😜. I figured it out - send me my prize!

Though on a serious note - looking forward to it and wishing you continued success with this awesome Charity auction

HAHA!! Cary, you make me smile. Thank you for that!

Actually, we are launching the quest today and will implement it in another thread to keep this one clean. Please check out this thread to participate in the new Hero Quest!

truedungeon.com/forum?view=topic&catid=584&id=255741

Have fun and good luck adventurers!

And on a side note, we are now just of $350 away from the main benefit auction being funded. It's still going till December 2nd so you have time but bid on what you like as there are still MANY items listed WAY below average current auction levels.

The 8K auction now only has $113 to go to fund!! Thank you all for your participation.

The side auctions in this initiative are going well and the donated items are bringing in quite a bit more. We are in the midst of the Quest for Heroes event so participate in that if you'd like. Many are having a great time with it and some big reveals are coming TODAY!

Have a great hump day everyone.
