This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

UPDATE: okay ...for those of you curious.....

I know of TWO people that donated to DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS.

One person sent me a check for the Wounded Warrior Project.

A few folks said they gave to their local Marines unit to help out the TOYS-FOR-TOTS program

I think a gamer in the United Kingdom said he gave to the similiar program for kids over there.

This past Friday I got a package in the mail from Texas. The Men In Black of Steve Jackson Games got together and put some games in a box.
 This afternoon I am handing off that box o' stuff to a U.S. MARINE for use in their TOYS-FOR TOTS toy drive.

further update:

Received a nice letter from the headquarters of the US Marines TOYS FOR TOTS foundation in Washington DC. Someone pledged money to them in the name of the "Klingon Santa".

It was a well written touching letter from a Retired Major  - took me by surprise in a good way.
