Hi everyone,
Iím running a charity fundraiser for Doctors Without Borders. Unsurprisingly, itís called Swords Without Borders.

The basic gist: thereíll be a raffle with some really awesome prizes at the beginning of August. To gain entries (i.e. ďticketsĒ), you donate. For every $10 USD, you gain an entry.

BONUS: if you donate at least $10, you can also do a sword-related video between July 1 (which is this upcoming Wednesday!) and July 31, and if you tag the fundraiser and follow the rules (see the link below), you gain 5 bonus entries. The video with the most likes by the end of July 31 gets an additional 5 entries!

There are 14 prizes donated by some awesome, really generous sponsors:
-SPES USA - Cadet HEMA sparring jacket
-Handmade Revolution - Medieval Belt
-Freelance Academy Press - Burgundian Poleaxe (book)
-Freelance Academy Press - Flowers of Battle vol 1 (book)
-Freelance Academy Press - Flowers of Battle vol 3 (book)
-Jesse Belsky Stageswords - HEMA Sidesword
-Davis Reproductions - $300 USD Gift Certificate
-Davis Reproductions - Bauernwehr (knife) w/ tooled [amazing] leather sheath and by-knife
-TherionArms - Cold Steel MAA Halberd modified to be much more historical
-Storms Rising Leather - dagger belt rig with Cold Steel training dagger
-Arms & Armor - $250 USD gift certificate
-Arms & Armor - Sgian Dubh
-Purpleheart Armory - Shashka Cossack Trainer Kit (2 synthetic swords & 2 books)
-Me - a historical-styled leather tooled case for a book
