My childrens' school is having a Fall Festival, at which the PTA is attempting to raise money for playground equipment. The school is in its second year, and since the school system doesn't give new schools money for playground equipment, the PTA has to raise the funds. They currently have one play set, but it's not nearly enough for all 700 kids at the school.

One way they raise the money is by auctioning off themed baskets during the Fall Festival. My wife, knowing what a Board Game Geek I am, asked me to solicit the FLGS where I play games every week for some donations of games and graphic novels for the "Family Game and Reading Night" basket.

Well, I did just that, and my FLGS owner said he'd work something out. But then I thought, hey, why not ask all the companies whose games I enjoy to help raise some money so my kids have more playground equipment to play on at recess?

So, I looked over at my game shelf, picked out the games that I enjoy playing with my family and the less cutthroat ones I enjoy playing with my friends and sent an e-mail to all the companies who publish them.

The following donations were made, listed in the order that the companies jumped on board.

Kudos to these companies for donating games so that a family can enjoy their products, and the students at Sandersville Elementary can enjoy their playground. Hopefully the list will continue to grow as we approach the Fall Festival in October!
