Share this and make it go viral!!! One of Gary Gygax's original players in what would eventually become Dungeons & Dragons, James M. Ward was a creative force at TSR from its infancy through its 80's heyday. He co-authored "Deities and Demigods" and "Pool of Radiance," as well as penning "Greyhawk Adventures" and many other influential works from TSR. For several years, health problems have been an issue, but Jim never let it beat him down, continuing to write and work, even as diabetes necessitated  the amputation of a foot. At this point in time, Jim's medical bills have risen to an enormous level. It's time for fans in the RPG community to step up and show our appreciation for this man and all the fun that his lifetime of work have brought us. Any donation is appreciated, large or small, to help wipe out this Grognard's medical debt.

If you've contributed, thank you so much for your help! Please take moment to pass on the link as well as some of these ideas to all your social media accounts and local groups and shops.
We're off to a great start, but we still have a ways to go. Here's an idea for us to pull together at your Friendly Local Game Shop.
Talk to the manager or owner and organize a donation day, most likely a weekend day or maybe a weeknight when a big group regularly takes up all the table space. The shop can have a jar for donations for Jim on the counter, and at the end of the event they donate the proceeds on behalf of their customers. In fact, the jar could sit for a week or a month if they want to promote it longer! No one has to feel like any amount is too small, just drop in a few bills, maybe that pocket change that you've had rattling around all week, or even the change rounded up from an in-store purchase.
We can do a lot of good, working together!
