So the whole idea of WAAC has taken hold with people doing their own thing to make some money for MacMillan.
This pleases me, as it saves me a job harassing people 😀
So Mr Barker aka @Proximocoal has come up with something different from my idea of gaming I will hand over to him;
As part of this campaign, I am going to be doing a sleepless 24 hour painting marathon, or Paintathon, to raise money for the charity. It’s going to be on the August Bank Holiday, to tie in with the other WAAC events. The challenge is to paint 100 28mm or larger scale miniatures. The figures will be built and primed, but everything else will be painted by hand.
Regardless of what happens, I will be doing this. However, what I would really like is as many people to get involved in this as possible. I am currently trying to organize a venue, so that we can have enough space for people to move their elbows, but I also need other people to get involved. If you are in the North East area, think you can take the strain and are willing to go out and get sponsors for a good cause I’d love to hear from you. You can catch me on twitter @proximocoal or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are not in the North East, it would be great if you could get involved anyway. Hopefully together we can make a difference.
I will be posting updates on my blog when I get them, so please keep on eye on this, but most importantly please find it in your heart to give something to help those who have suffered from cancer. You can find my just giving page here.
So make sure you keep his blog in your RSS feed reader and help out if you cant game on the weekend of WAAC
