You Can Play a Critical Role in Kids’ Lives by Supporting 826LA

Critical Role is Geek & Sundry’s live Dungeons & Dragons show, featuring Dungeon Master Matthew Mercer and his troupe of fellow voice actors. Catch them every Thursday night at 7:00 PM PT on the Geek & Sundry Twitch channel and on Alpha.

Critical Role has supported the Los Angeles-based charity 826LA since the beginning of the livestream, and helping the organization has been an important goal of second campaign in particular. 826LA’s mission is to inspire and support kids ages 6 to 18 in their writing and storytelling endeavors who might not have otherwise had the opportunity to do so.

Not only does the organization tutor and host workshops in reading and writing, 826LA also travels to under-resourced local schools to help both students and teachers.

This spring Critical Role and 826LA have teamed up to fundraise together, not only giving kids some incredible opportunities to learn about the art of storytelling, but also offering Critters the chance to unlock some amazing incentives for the entire community.

In just about one week, the fundraising efforts have raised over $25,000–way to go, Critters!–rewarding everyone with special discounts at D&D Beyond and Wyrmwood Gaming, as well as with an upcoming Reddit Q&A with the crew.

(Take a look at the Critical Role Twitter to find out what those discount codes are, but they’re only valid for a limited time–so don’t wait!)

Not only is the cast of Critical Role instrumental in getting the word out about this fundraising campaign, they also have been generously donating their time and storytelling expertise at 826LA to inspire new tales in D&D and beyond.

Critical Role guest star Darin DePaul even stopped by recently, and brought smiles to every face in the room.

Donations are tax-deductible and will be matched by fellow Critter Mark Koro up to $40,000. (Thanks, Mark!) The fundraising campaign runs until mid-May, so don’t delay in adding in your support, whether it’s financial or just helping get the word out to the Critter community and beyond.
