We have some amazing backers who have thrown their support behind D6. Now we’re asking you to show some love to those who could use it even more. For those who are familiar with our previous campaigns, you know what that means: time for some Social Sugar Goats (stretch goals)!
There are three ways to help us help you by hitting these goals. Don’t think of them as “choices” or “options,” though—why not go ahead and do all three?
1) Do something nice for animals.
You can donate time, money, or resources to an animal shelter or wildlife organization, “adopt” an endangered animal, or whatever else your generous, critter-lovin’ heart desires. Both the type and amount of your contribution are completely up to you.
At some point while performing your act of service, snap a photo of yourself with this proof-of-kindness graphic. You can print out the image or get someone to take a pic with you holding it on your phone. However you do it is fine as long as you post your pic in a comment on this Facebook post. (If you don’t use Facebook, no worries; just email your proof-of-kindness pic to Rick Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
2) Do something nice for children.
Again, it’s helper’s choice here. You can donate money to a children’s hospital or a children’s home, volunteer as a tutor...whatever you want as long as it directly benefits children.
Same deal with the proof-of-kindness graphic and Facebook post. (See #1.)
3) Share even more love for D6.
This one does require a Facebook account. Simply share this post. Doesn’t get much easier than that, folks.
Now that we've taken care of the “social” aspect, it’s time to explain the “stretch goal” part….
50 (verifiable) good deeds for children = one new Cleric hero unlocked
50 (verifiable) good deeds for animals = one new Cleric hero unlocked
50 shares of our D6 post = one new Cleric hero unlocked
For anyone tempted to take a shortcut and think, “Okay, cool—I’ll just take care of a whole category by donating $1 to my local animal shelter...50 times.” Nope. We need 50 separate backers for each category. The same backer can qualify in multiple categories, but not more than once in the same category.
At this point, you’re probably asking, “But what happens if we reach all three stretch goals? Surely you’re going to give us more, right? More, more, moooore!!” (We know how you are.)
Some of you have asked for it...a few of you have demanded it...and one or two of you have offered to trade your firstborn for it. (Nice try, but the nursery is currently full from previous campaigns.) If all three social stretch goals are reached, you’ll unlock a whole new hero class for the game! (Hint: It’s the Cleric.)
And if there are any concerns about us putting our money where our mouth is on the charitable acts front, allow us to alleviate them. We'll be doing our part for the kids and animals, too, and we'll share those pics in the Facebook post. Heck, we may even apply our efforts to those totals so you won't have to quite hit 50. (We want the Cleric class just as much as you do.)
Now go do some good, you good-doing do-gooders!
Oh! And one more thing before we sign off. Remember: The next custom hero card is up for grabs tomorrow! The same (Un)lucky Bastard tier will open back up for one more backer at 3:00am CDT on Friday. (Same tier, but the limit increases to two.) If you want to disappoint Anthony by snatching his custom-designed card out from under him, have your wallet and your clickin' finger at the ready!
Until next time!
