Gave another £100.00 to Cancer Research UK today, taking the total amount I've given them and the predecessor charities to £1468. Since the donation qualifies for the Gift Aid tax thingy they'll end up getting £128, I think. Most of the hundred was raised last year, with the balance coming in as a percentage of Forgotten Futures registrations etc. since I've launched the new release of the game. Hopefully I'll be able to give them more before too long, if it gets a few reviews and I start to shift more. I can hope, anyway.

But it's worth saying again that if you are British, pay taxes, and want to help a charity, you should ALWAYS fill in a gift aid form - don't just drop your money in a collecting box, they won't get the tax break. There's no minimum amount (although I prefer to wait until I have a hundred quid or so in hand so that I'm not doing it too often) and it really does help them.
