More Prizes!

As promised last week, we are adding some new prizes now that we are over half way to our goal.

Probably the most wanted of them will be the first three books of A Song of Ice and Fire, donated by George R.R. Martin. Acknowledging that we get donations from all over the world, George has offered the books in whichever language the winner chooses (there are about 40 to choose from).

The fund raiser will end at midnight on the last day of February, because it seemed cool to end on a leap day. Up until that time, everyone who donates money will go into a draw for one of those prizes. The full rules of the draw are available here.

Our aim, as with last year, is to raise $2000. As you may recall, we managed $1764.01. Let’s at least beat that.
