Please Help Jim Ward

As I was preparing to leap back into the 2nd edition Gamma World toxic waste pool, I read the following over at the Original D&D Discussion site:
At Dragonsfoot, Tim Kask says Jim Ward is very sick.

So as not to be the bearer of only bad news, Craig Brain is proposing a tribute product to help raise money for Jim's medical expenses - completing one's collection of MA stuff at RPGNow is also a great way to do so.
I have a handful of RPG design heroes, ones whose work continues to inspire, thrill, and entertain me long after it first saw print. James Ward is one of those heroes and this news saddens me greatly. I hope that he recovers from his illness and continues to produce more of his always inspiring work. I’ll be picking up a few MA goodies next week to do what I can to help Jim and his family take care of medical expenses.

Here’s a video that has more information on what you can do to help.

Do you know if there's somewhere we can just donate money?

Not yet, but there seems to be some discussion about that going on over on the Dragonsfoot thread. If something solidifies, I'll be sure to mention it here.

Thank you very much. I avoid Dragonsfoot, so I don't want to miss it if it does come up. If I'm going to give money (and I'm going to), I'd rather give 100% to the appropriate fund rather than buy a product and only have a percentage going where it needs to go.
