But, then again, the MtgUnderground community is awesome. There's not a lot of whining around here, and people rather got inspired to use their cards for a good cause. The word about the campaign spread well, even to the more mainstream Magic scene.
|"Other" are UK, Switzerland and Belgium btw.|
SvenskaMagic.com contributed a lot with both selling cards and donating the full entry from the Swedish national championships in Legacy. PucaTrade also jumped in on the cause; suggesting to their followers on social media to join the campaign, and posted a community spotlight article where they interviewed me about 93/94 magic and #MtgForLife.
So we actually reached the ambitious goal we had set out. All in all, we collected $12,692 in the 40 days we had crowd funding page active. That's more than thirty-two times the yearly gross domestic product per capita in The Central African Republic. It's a few years worth of salary for a nurse working in South Sudan. It's in the ballpark of vaccinating 1,250 kids against pneumonia (even with the current high price tag of the shots).
Enjoy Magic. Enjoy the #mtgunderground. If you care more about people you haven't met than about winning a PPTQ, you belong here. If beer is a better compliment to a tournament than planeswalker points, you are welcome. You won't have to give up anything except your mindset. But if someone should happen to join MSF and teach a kid in a war-torn country to play MtG, I'll happily give them a Mox.
You're the inspiration.
