During our March games the Domain of Shattered Antiquities will be hosting a charity drive for Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland Maine. This drive was suggested and is being organized by Miranda Chadbourne.
Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital is a leading pediatric hospital north of Boston. Their Children’s Life Department organizes a “Take it and Read it Library,” a collection of books for children of all ages to choose a book to read during their hospital stay. These books stay with the child, and are not returned. These books are small gifts to all sick children and their siblings a way to get away from what’s troubling them.
We are asking for donations of NEW books. All books should be appropriate for readers between the ages of newborns to young adults.
In lieu of books, any cash donations can also be given during game time. The cash will be used to purchase other books, or small toys such as coloring books or crayons to give with the donation.
Books will be collected by Miranda during Apoc and Masq on March 9th, and by Laura or an ADC during Sabbat and Space. Prestige will be given for donations. As per the guidelines in the Membership Handbook, for each $2 worth of items or money donated to a local sanctioned philanthropy, 1 general prestige point is awarded.
If you have any further questions please feel free to the DC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apocalypse Game Note-
This Book Drive has been sponsored by the players from “Teeth Around Your Neck” Apoc Pack, who will be hosting a baby shower for Amy Hofman. Should any player wish to have their character give a book for an in game baby shower, but is unable to donate to the book drive, index cards will be provided for the character to write which books would have been given.
Alternatively if players are interested in donating more than one book we will set up a table with up for grabs books to be given at the baby shower.
