Be the first to own a piece of X-Wing history while helping those in need.
In 2014, with the help of lots of members of the UK Facebook group, I created a practical joke and convinced a ridiculous number of people around the world that in England Biggs is known as Biggles. If you hadn’t heard about this worldwide jape, you can read about it here: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1163833/how-come-no-one-knows-about . Now you can own your very own Biggles card and save lives at the same time. Each card is professionally printed on proper quality card stock so it looks and feels like a genuine X-Wing card.
I'm selling these cards to help raise money for the Interfaith Homeless Shelter in Santa Fe (see www.interfaithsheltersf.org). The shelter has been saving people’s lives since 2008 when homeless deaths from hypothermia were out of control. No homeless person has died from hypothermia in Santa Fe since the shelter opened, and we intend to keep it that way. Some of the money from the Biggles cards will also be donated to The Campaign Against Cancer through Twin Suns Charities (http://twinsunscharities.org/). This campaign is an annual event organised by X-Wing players in America to help find a cure for cancer. Donations to Twin Suns Charities are tax-exempt, for those who care about such things. Our plan is to raise over $1500 to help stop people from dying, either the homeless in Santa Fe or those afflicted with cancer around the world. By buying these cards, you may literally be saving a life.
How do you get cards? There are two ways... (1) If you know someone going to the World Championships, give them $10 per card you want and ask them to buy them directly from me. I will be bringing the entire remaining stock there. (2) If you don’t know someone going to the World Championships, I can mail it to you. To make things easy for me, because I'm expecting a lot of orders, I'm charging a flat fee of $5 for postage anywhere around the world. Go to PayPal and send $15 per card ordered to friends and family (so that we don’t get charged a fee) to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please put your full name and address on the order or we can’t post your cards!
You can buy as many cards as you want. Please be aware that in one weekend of pre-release sales, I’ve already got rid of a fifth of the stock, so place your order soon. I make no money from this at all – all proceeds go directly to charity. You don’t even have to buy cards if you want – you can just donate through PayPal.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
