This is your chance to make a difference by checking out their new project.
Operation Good Cause 2019
Operation Good Cause is a GO!
Hello everybody and welcome to Operation Good Cause 2019!
I have always been convinced that we, as a community of like-minded people, can contribute more to the world than just pushing toy soldiers. In the past, I have supported several other charity armies, including organizing the 2012 Black Crusade. This year, I partnered up with the local Christchurch Wargaming Club to run another fundraiser.
Over the years, my personal preference in gaming shifted more and more towards historical systems, and therefore we decided to try our luck with a World War 2 army. With the 75th anniversary of D-Day coming up this year, it was a only logical choice to go for an US force. Thanks to the generous support by our partners (listed on the left), we assembled an army that would make any general proud. And we also have several rule sets we will give away with the army!
This time all contributions will benefit the International Committee of the Red Cross, to aknowledge and support their relentless work in the war zones of our planet.
From now on until the end of the campaign we will publish articles, reviews and unit reveals on a regular base. Please check in from time to time to see what's new!
How does it work?
We will accept contributions in New Zealand dollars, since this is where we are based. Every $2 you contribute gives you a chance to be the lucky winner at the end of this drive. $10 contribution = 5 chances to win. $100 dollars = 50 chances... you get the idea.
In short: the more you contribute, the better your chances. More importantly, the more you contribute, the more you help to make the world a better place.
The contribution phase will end on June 6th !
After that, on June 9th, we will choose and announce the winner during our public D-Day gaming event. If possible, we will stream the draw live n the internet!
And of course we are working hard to offer additional give-aways of all kind of gaming related goodies for you! The winners of those prizes will be drawn form everybody who donated tot hat point, so get your lots in early!
We will start to accept contributions on Monday, February 4th.
Please read the disclaimer (link on the right) for more information.

Well, the more support we get, the better our army will be and the more money we can collect!
Beside contributing there are some other easy ways to support Operation Good Cause:
