Greetings unto the Populace of the Great Middle Kingdom.
In the Society for Creative Anachronism, we are a collective of volunteers, each serving in their own way at one point or another so that all may have a chance to play, enjoy, learn and have fun. It is on this mantra that the SCA has gone on for 50 years now, and shall continue to do so.
To that end, I am seeking those artists of any medium to take up an opportunity to give to the volunteers. What volunteers you may be asking? To give back to the volunteers that will be helping at SCA 50 year. For every hour a volunteer donates of time at 50 Year, they will earn a raffle ticket. They may drop said ticket into a raffle for one of the item prizes, to be drawn at the end of the event.
But what prizes? That’s where you come in. We are seeking out items from the talented populace of the known world to have for the volunteers to chance with their tickets to win. We’re not looking for purchased things, but handmade items that people would buy/make/trade/commission for themselves. If it will be a specialized item to be done after winning (IE: a painted portrait or a custom coin) that is great as well. We would like the item to be of around $50, but obviously that is for you to judge what your work is worth. This is a great way for you to contribute to 50 Year and be seen, in a way, even if you cannot make it to the event.
Items can be mailed to myself, or delivered at 50 year if you are attending. If you would find it in your heart to donate to this cause, and payback to those that will be helping setup, take down, and do various setups through 50 year, please contact me at with the following information.
- SCA Title and Name
- Mundane Name
- Item to be Donated
- To be mailed or delivered at 50 Year
- Mailing Address
- Any additional information / description of your item you wish to include (including pictures of your work if it’s a ‘after raffle’ item.
As a thank you, I’ll be doing a raffle of my own, and two artists will be drawn to receive gift cards to get more supplies (or whatever you want to do with the money).
I thank you for your time and hope we will have some amazing items for the volunteers that give time for others to play and enjoy the event. Please feel free to copy and share this so that many may see it.
In Service to The Dream,
