Ayy charity. And do join us on the STU server for my attempts to ruin a democracy on the 18th. I've already done it in a region or two, so I might as well do it on another game too :P

I value my life. That being said I do plan to donate more next week, when I have some more of my own money.

Today's Events: 12 December

Thalassia:
  • All Day - Christmas Haiku Competition on the RMB.
  • @10pm CT - Jingle Jam (Music VC/Karaoke) on discord.



Some words from Wym

Oh. My. Lord. $1000 dollars in a day. When I saw us reach that target at around 11AM UTC today, I was genuinely lost for words. The target has been raised to $1100 now, but I'm still flabberghasted we made it to $1k. I want to say thank you to everyone who has donated so far, every donation, from $5 to $200 has made a huge difference. Tommorrow at 9PM UTC, that's 4PM Eastern or 3PM Central for you Americans, we will be having our first centrally run livestream. With The Holy Principality of Saint Mark and Scardino as our lovely guests. Here's to $1100 and I hope you enjoy all of today's events!

$1k in a day?! How exciting! Hopefully we continue to see some good momentum- fingers crossed! It’s such a worthy cause, especially for a group of people who may experience additional difficulty during the holiday season- especially after a year like this.

Hello!

I'm here from the NSG zoom group, the only organisation here that for obvious reasons doesn't have a region. Unfortunately with the way we work, we're only able to host one event which is our quiz next Saturday; the zoom call starts at 8 pm UK time, the quiz at 9 PM in order to allow everyone to join.
We will post the zoom link in this thread for anybody who wishes to join at the time that the meeting is about to start. We're proud to be supporting such an important cause; hopefully the donation target is smashed again and again.

Much love,
- Greater Vakolicci Haven, Fartsniffage and Celritannia,
