In light of how Lynn was an avid gamer, I thought an appropriate choice for a memorial fundraising drive might be Child’s Play. This is a great charity which works directly with hospitals to provide video games, toys, books, and the like to sick kids.
As Child’s Play has a widget put together to allow us to track a fundraiser, I went ahead and put together a site we can use to track our donations.
You can donate from that page or through this link using PayPal. These donations go directly to the charity, not through me or anyone from the boards. They are tax-deductible. You can even earmark the funds for a hospital you prefer by simply leaving a note on your donation. A map of participating hospitals is here.
If this isn’t your thing, TubaDiva rightly pointed out that Lynn also was a lover of animals, and an alternative charity choice that would be appropriate is your local animal shelter.
For those of who who can’t donate, you can also participate sharing this thread or the site above, or even just bumping the thread.
Any questions or concerns, let me know.
[Edit: for those who didn’t see the ATMB thread, we were informed of Lynn’s passing this morning. -Marley]
