Would there be interest in/support for doing this again this year?

 

This is the basic idea behind it for those not familiar:

 

The past couple Reapercons that I've been at, I have noticed a fair amount of swag bag/con exclusive figures that people didn't want getting tossed onto the melt table and/or left laying around.

I had the idea of collecting all the unwanted stuff, putting it in a box and shipping it around to folks who couldn't get to the 'con so that they could sort of 'be there, too'.

 

Unlike the regular BoGW, people donating wouldn't get anything out of the box, they would just be 'throwing away' the stuff they don't want in a slightly different direction. Maybe there would be a ribbon involved, maybe it might just be the thanks of people who will benefit done the line.

Consider me interested in throwing things in. ^^;

I'd like to donate too.


I think we should ask if there can be a box put next to the melt table, maybe? Not as a melt thing, just to make it easier to centralize stuff. I know I had a pile of things for it last year, and couldn't find the person to give it to...

We can't really do that, though. Reaper doesn't mind that I do this, but it's all gotta be on me/whoever wants to help me. Asking Reaper for help opens them up to people complaining about it, which would get it shut down.

Well I’d certainly be interested in it as a participant/recipient  again!  It’s always a lot of fun, and does let us who can’t make the con feel like we’re a little part of the event. ::):

I still have all the stuff from shrinking down one of the earlier BoGs that I plan on bringing to RCon. I'm not volunteering or taking any classes this year, so I'll be chilling at one of the tables close to the Artist Alley with my antlers. I understand if you want to keep those boxes separate, but I don't mind holding on to them when you need to do some running around.

Won't be at the con, but I'd love to get in on it. I have non-Reapercon stuff I'd like to put into a BoGW, to keep it stocked up, too.

@Fnordlover, the RC BoGW is usually a box specifically filled with con items, with no expectation that more items will be added as the box travels. It's basically a gift from those who attend to those who could not. It's awesome!

 

... And I would love to be on its route, when such a thing might happen. One of these days, I'll make it back to Reapercon so I can pay the BoGW forward!

You're welcome to sign up for the regular version of the Box of Goodwill (sometime after Reapercon) if you'd like.

 

Also, I guess I should have been more clear at the beginning; this isn't the sign up thread, that will come later.

I would love to donate to this. I'm sure I will get a few things that I won't want/use. I'll try to find you or @Morihalda at the con to make donation arrangements. Thanks for doing this.

      Ok, here are the rules:
      1) Please don't sign up if you were there, or if you had someone get you stuff from the con. This is supposed to be for people who weren't there. No, I'm not going to check, but the gods will know, and they will visit a terrible vengeance upon you.
       
      2) Unlike the regular version of the BoGW that you may be familiar with, you don't need to match anything you take. All of this stuff was donated by people to allow other people to get some cool stuff. So, take whatever you want (but see below).
       
      3) No sharing your picks. If it works out that everyone involved gets to pick 3 figures but you only want 2, you can't pass that extra figure choice down the line to someone else. Everyone gets to have the same amount of stuff, unless someone chooses to take less. If there's stuff left over, send it back to me and it'll get folded into the next regular Box of Goodwill. (Exact number of choices will be based on the amount of people signing up)
       
      Most of the stuff this time around is metal and resin miniatures. There are no Bones (I did receive a few of the monthly Bones giveaway figure, but they're all the same figure, and I was probably only going to throw in a few to round out numbers if it becomes necessary, otherwise, I was going to put them in the regular BoGW). There are a few non-miniature items, such as bags, dice, etc. There are not enough of these items to go around, so if you want a bag, for example, that counts as one of your picks.
       
      Any other questions, please let me know.

      Ok, I've got the box organized and packed; hopefully I can make to the post office Monday to start it on it's way.
       
      Here's the list:
       
      Ratmaster 2000--arrived 10/31, sent 11/1
      SGhawkins 09--arrived11/2, sent 11/10
      ShadowPhase--arrived 11/13, sent 11/16
      Strawhat--arrived 11/19, sent 12/1
      GlitterWolf--arrived 12/10
      RobinH--arrived 1/8, sent 1/9
      Necromancer---arrived 1/14, sent 1/16
      Generic Fighter--arrived 1/18, sent 1/22
      Disserma--arrived 1/24, sent 2/6
      RedAmbrosia--arrived 2/8, sent 2/26
      Ttuckerman--arrived 2/28, sent 3/1
      Fire Eyes--arrived 3/4, sent 3/15
      Chris Palmer--arrived 3/18, sent 3/20

      If there's anything left, send it back to me, and it'll get put into the next (regular version) BoGW that happens.
       
      There are enough items included for everyone to make four (4) picks. After you've grabbed some stuff, seal it back up and send it the next person. This is all based on the generosity of people at Reapercon, so there's no need to put anything back in; this is a straight up gift.
      There are 2 pairs of sunglasses in there; they don't have anything to do with Reaper/Reapercon other than that they were in the swag bag, and (I'm guessing) donated by the city of Denton. If you want a pair take 'em, they don't have to count as one of your 4 items, unless your conscience dictates otherwise.
      If you want to help out with international shipping fees (and no one is under any obligation to do so) contact Strawhat, GlitterWolf, or RobinH to work something out.
       
      A big THANK YOU!! to everyone who donated stuff for this to happen.
