Charity money befouled by D&D

At least that’s how the Christian Children’s Fund feels about it. Gen Con raised over $17,000 at its annual charity auction this year, held in honor of Gary Gygax, but the Christian Children’s Fund turned the money down when it learned that sales of Dungeons & Dragons materials were part of the auction. The late Gary Gygax himself had cited the CCF as his favorite charity, and was likely a frequent donor, so this makes even less sense than your average prejudiced stupidity. The money went to the Fisher House Foundation instead, which had no such qualms about the filthy D&D charity money.
