    Default Re: Charity Rejects D&D Money - Let's Write Letters!

    Letter sent:

    I must commend you on your choice to reject the offering from persons involved with role playing. It is surely in the children’s best interest to only benefit from the charity of those your organization feel are worthy to donate. This calls to mind a few scriptures that may apply:

    Luke 6:37
    Luke 13:34-30
    Matthew 7:6
    Matthew 25:32-46

    Rest assured, I will not bother your organization by offering any monies in the future and I have informed all those I know of your policy as well.

    Thank you for writing to Anne Goddard and sharing your concerns. Anne was traveling when she received your email. We discussed your concern and she asked that I respond on her behalf Please know that we take your email very seriously.

    There appears to be a misunderstanding which I would like to correct. When Gen Con contacted CCF about its auction, we were pleased to accept donations. However, we couldn’t lend our name for publication because our policies have specific criteria for endorsements. We were unaware that this had caused any problem or concern for Gen Con until we began receiving emails. This decision was in no way intended to be a reflection on Mr. Gygax, gaming enthusiasts or the game Dungeon and Dragons. We have the utmost respect for the gaming community and were touched by the generosity expressed through your auction. We were disappointed that we were not the recipients of the donation but we were pleased that another worthy organization benefited.

    We realize this has become a topic of discussion in the gaming community and we hope you will help us by sharing this response.

    The needs of children are great and we welcome your support. Should you wish to learn more we invite you to visit our website at www.christianchildrensfund.org.

    Again, I thank you for taking the time to voice your concern. Your passion for gaming and your support for children are admirable.

    Sincerely,

    Cheri Dahl
    Vice President, International Communications and Fundraising
    I guess they didn't think we were important. Nice to know they are woking on a good spin to try to cover up the huge insult.
