Kids Need To Game

My good bloggin' buddy Dane of War is looking for some help with a pretty nifty cause. Here's an excerpt:

As a teacher for many years, I have been able to use RPGs and wargames to not only assist me in teaching the English language, but to sharpen math skills, teamwork and abstract thinking. As such, it was a natural progression for me to seek out and to obtain permission to "take over" a section of the school library as a gamers corner. Our students do not even have to belong to a school club - they can simply loan out the materials like they would any other book. This is a first here, and something that I am very excited about.

But I need help.

My school, like many other of our public schools, operates with very little government funding for anything outside of the most necessary items, so there is simply no money available to purchase gaming books or boardgames.

While I personally have donated quite a few books, games and related items, one person isn't really capable of providing the sheer amount needed for a school library.

That's why I decided to start Kids Need To Game (KNTG) - and that's why I need your help.
