Hey there – it’s a busy time at Old Giant HQ..

WWPd4Vets is the second year of 24 hour worldwide gaming and gameyness to help raise money for Veterans Charities. The events are tweeted and some are live video streamed!

In the UK our chosen charity is Help for Heroes…

Please help if you can. Here is my forum post contents on

“Just so as not to be left out please give generously from now and as long as you want on my Help for Heroes web page.

Please use the link above so we can count all the donations toward WWPD4Vets.

I will be tweeting #WWPD4Vets on Saturday 12th April from SALUTE 2014 in London’s Docklands!!! You can follow all the 24 hours worldwide action from there.

Follow us on Twitter: Look for #WWPD4Vets updates on Twitter! We are @WWPDPodcast

As i am busy going round the show and meeting people and recording events I am going to be pressed for time for raising money… so ….

As an extra incentive I am offering the following to all UK-based contributors…. (and remember to use Gift Aid in the UK to give the tax to H4H !!)

Just donate as much as you can give to the charity donations page for H4H and use the comments box to add you WWPD Forum name and a preference of one of the following items. remember the page for donations to count is:

So just donate and add (for example) the support message/comment “ambler Saga” if your WWPD forum name is ‘ambler’ and you would prefer the Saga prize.

I can’t guarantee that you will get exactly what you want but it helps.

Who wins these great prizes? For the first three people to donate the highest amounts of 50 UK pounds or above and leave their WWPD forum contact details (not your address, email or phone please!!!!) I am offering the following:

If you are not a WWPD forum user please email me at gamer2 (at) dalesys. co. uk

A Flames of War “Open Fire” Starter Set. Just say “Flames” after your name if you have that preference.

A Dropzone Commander Starter set. Just say “Dropzone” in the comments with your forum name.

A Saga 6 point (yes SIX not 4!!!) Gripping Beast starter metal set. Just say “Saga” after your forum name. The chosen army is the Irish Warband.

And to the highest runner-up after the above and donating at least 30 pounds, a T-shirt of my choosing (gamey but not offensive).  Again in all cases leave your forum id and i will PM you get your size details. They go up to UK 2X (2x fits me great and i am a barrel chested 48 !!)

So there you have it. I have got together some neat prize support to say thanks for your generous giving. So please dig deep and donate to Help for Heroes !

Notes: Delivery to UK addresses only by Royal Mail. As these are rewards for donations not purchases the nominal value of the goods is £0.0001
I will decide the winners (you are all winners to me for donating any amount!) in descending order of donation value at the end of Sunday 12th April when i have recovered from the event. In the event that there are less winning amounts than prizes, you can continue to donate for another week after the event ffor whatever is left. My decision is final and all monies raised will go to H4H.”
