Donate to the Red Cross for a Chance at a Free Character Portrait from RPG Character Illustrations, the great company that did the beautiful  portrait of Trask,  is running a great contest for a good cause. If you make a donation to the Red Cross you are entered in a contest for a free character portrait by Ben Wootten. Ben does covers for Paizo and Goodman Games and truly has skills.  Here is the official announcement.

This holiday teams with fantasy and sci-fi illustrator Ben Wootten to raise money for those in need and we hope you can support us.

Starting December 20th and running till December 24th, donating to The Red Cross via our site will enter you in a drawing to win a custom character illustration by Ben.

Ben’s work graces dozens of D&D books.  He’s worked with Wizards of the Coast, Paizo Publishing, Goodman Games, and Sony.  Heck, he drew concept art for the Lord of the Rings movies and for one lucky person, he’ll draw their RPG character.

Entering to win is simple:
Just visit our “Charity” page
Donate whatever you can afford via the PayPal “Donate” link (you don’t actually need a PayPal account, you can use a credit card).
100% of the money raised will go to the Red Cross.  The Red Cross has seen a recent surge in requests for aid in the form of food, clothing and shelter and Ben and want to help.

On December 24th around 5 PM PST, we’ll announce the winner, the amount of money raised, and give a special thanks to all the sites that helped promote our fund-raiser.

Could you please help us promote this fund raiser?  We think the prize is something your readers would enjoy and all it takes is a quick word of support.

If you have any questions, or want to help out in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you for your consideration and have a happy holidays,

Craig Higdon
