To All Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman and Tanith Lee Fans (OT)

Postby FerretBob on Mon Jun 30, 2008 1:25 pm

On 11 December 2007, Pratchett posted online that he had been newly diagnosed with a very rare form of early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Since then, he has made a donation of US$1 Million to the Alzheimer’s Research Trust
Pratchett’s fans have since decided to match this donation. Thus, Match It for Pratchett was created. This is our attempt to help the man who has brought joy, laughter and wisdom to all the readers of the world.

For my part I have organised something of my own. My colleague and I have made 5 unique badges, signed and marked with the very kind assistance of Mr Neil Gaiman and Ms Tanith Lee. These are being auctioned on Ebay later this week. Even if this is not something you would be likely to bid on, please pass this website on to whatever forums you frequent, let as many people know as you possibly can. The more people who know about this, the more chance we have to make a lot of money for Alzheimer's Research!

The First two badges go on sale in just two hours! Please let anyone you can know about it, even if you can't bid yourself!

not to question your intentions - but you haven't said how much of the proceeds you are donating. (it's a good thing to put out there, just for the record)

100%

Minus Ebay fees because Match It For Pratchett and the Alzheimer's Research trust aren't on Ebay's rather minuscule list of charity options. I'll probably donate the equivalent of the Ebay fees on my own, though
