Please note changes to the donation amounts below. All of this year the post office has been charging parcel rate instead of envelope rate for the figures being sent out. Something to do with maximum thickness of envelopes and such. I've been paying between $3 and $6 for each order. I've absorbed the cost by taking it out of what I keep for production, but after 9 months of that I need to make an adjustment. As of October 1, 2012 each character set will now be a flat $10. I have also started quarterly payments to Red Cross instead of monthly. See the bottom of the page for this quarter's contribution.
The Space Pals for Red Cross miniatures series was launched in early July. It is the product of some interpretive fan sculptures of pop icons and the suggestion from a buddy at TMP (thanks, 28mm Man) that proceeds be donated to charity. The goal is to reimburse mold making, casting and sculpting costs over time while collecting donations for the Red Cross. Participants will receive the 15mm figures in each set for each donation they make.
I am pleased and encouraged by the participation during the month of July. I received donations for 35 sets. With the $3 from each and the extra that some participants sent, I made the donation to the Red Cross today for $116. Thank-you all for your support and generosity.
My current plan is to keep participation open for each set and to release new sets each quarter. I'll provide direct links to the donation page at PayPal for each set. Anyone wishing to donate may pick the current or any previous set available.
