PRESS RELEASE

DriveThruRPG's Customers Donate $178,900.00 to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti Relief

Friday, February 5, 2010

(Atlanta, GA) - DriveThruRPG, an online marketplace for traditional dice-and-paper roleplaying games, recently conducted a fund-raising program in the wake of the devastating earthquake that affected Haiti. The effort resulted in an amount of $178,900.00 being wired to the international relief organization, Doctors Without Borders.

"Nothing like this has ever happened in our community," said Sean Patrick Fannon, Marketing Manager for DriveThruRPG. "The response of the publishers and the gaming community has been nothing short of miraculous. I am extremely proud of what we've all done here. It can't take away the misery and tragedy faced by the people of Haiti, but we are hopeful that our efforts can bring some relief and recovery to them.

DriveThruRPG chose Doctors Without Borders because of their flawless reputation for bringing medical and humanitarian aid to those in need without any partisan or philosophical agenda attached. Already on the ground when the earthquake struck, Doctors Without Borders is perfectly positioned to make immediate and efficient use of the funds collected.

"We are extremely grateful to DriveThruRPG and the roleplaying game community for choosing to contribute to Doctors Without Borders. Their generosity will help provide lifesaving and urgently needed humanitarian assistance to the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti," said Jennifer Tierney, Director of Development for Doctors Without Borders-USA. "As Doctors Without Borders provides surgery for victims of the earthquake, as well as post-operative care, mental health support, and other medical care, this contribution will make a real difference in Haiti."

Reports from Doctors Without Borders indicate that over 11,000 have been treated by them, with over 1,300 surgeries performed (most of them major). The money donated by DriveThruRPG will go directly to helping rebuild their supplies and expanding their operations during the recovery of the Haitian nation.

"This is just the beginning," said Steve Wieck, CEO of DriveThruRPG. "We've tapped into a real power for positive social change and charitable good here, and we're looking ahead to future opportunities to use our technology to help game publishers and game fans network to provide assistance to those in need."

DriveThruRPG.com is the world's largest source of roleplaying game products available for download. It is an industry leader in modern business and technology developments for the tabletop gaming fan. For more information, contact Matt M. McElroy (matt@onebookshelf.com).
