LiveStrong Wargaming Project and what it means for the MWC Hub

     Welcome to Miniature Wargame Conversions, better known simply as MWC, the blog hub that has brought the very popular Pay It Forward Free Give Away each month. Pay It Forward has now had spin offs such as the very awesome Gifts of Mork group, run by a great guy, Jason/Arch, hosted on the 40kforums and several others on local levels.

     We are all very proud to announce that we are now opening our doors to offer a place to announce your event, gig, activity or benefit. We will also a proud member in a number of top secret things going on right now including taking part in helping with the Heroes of Armageddon Charity Project. As well as leading the charge in the LiveStrong Wargaming Project.

     LiveStrong Wargaming Project? I'm sure you already asking yourself what could that possibly be. Well, LiveStrong, for those not familiar, is a US based Cancer support organization. Last year, when my wife Sarah and I lost our son, Erin due to a premature birth, Sarah was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer and only given 2 months. With help from LiveStrong, she was able to make it just over 10 months. The people there are very kind and always willing to help in any possible way. Since Pay It Forward was a tribute to her and our son which is now taking its own path, my thoughts have moved over to helping donate in anyway I can to LiveStrong. Thus the LiveStrong Wargaming Project was born.

      It will consist of me and a select few others that will be building, converting and painting various things to sell on
eBay . What’s neat is eBay has a feature to take all sales and donate them directly to a Charity of your choice. All proceeds for the various auctions will be going directly to LiveStrong via the Ebay Giving Works. Yes, that’s right, we will be donating all 100% of each sale. That said, anyone can help by simply listing stuff they don't need on eBay , and donating the money to LiveStrong or any other Charity organization using the eBay Giving Works program and their own eBay account..

  1. Man, I am really sorry to read about your Son and Wife, I can't begin to imagine.

    I clicked on the link because I used to race pushbikes at a pretty high level before an injury put me out and know of Livestrong via Armstrong.

    I've got some stuff around that I probably won't be using, I will get in touch about donating a new plastic edition painted Daemon Prince to the cause.

    I'll get in touch via the email over the weekend but I just wanted to chime in and say this is a great cause.

  2. I was looking at Livestrong as one of our potential donor targets. So I'm sure we'll be in contact on that one.
