Just like previous years, our goal of 2010 was to surpass the amount raised from the previous year. Again, we succeeded by raising $2500. This year saw more clans holding "Bounty Hunts" at conventions where people would donate in order to see their friends and family "captured" by the Mercs and "placed in jail".
The fund was split to 4 clans who requested to use their share for various charitable purposes. The clans involved each took their donation amount and then reported back on what it was used for.
Vhetin'ade Clan donated their portion to the "Children's Wish" program that helped a special little boy with a serious heart condition in Winnepeg, Canada get his wish of going to Disney World.
Wampa Clan donated their portion to two local Maine families in need. The first family has a child suffering from bone cancer, the second has a child with kidney failure. Both are receiving on-going medical treatments and the money helped to cover some of the costs of the medical bills.
Suumpir'ade Clan teamed up with the 501st Great Lakes Garrison and Reble Legion Great Lakes Base and donated their portion to the Michigan Special Olympics. The donated amount was added to the amount they helped raise at a local hockey event.
Finally, a portion of the fun was sent to the "Hope for the Eliason Family" fundraiser, which was to help the Eliason Family of UT whose house had burnt down only a week from Christmas leaving the family of 5 homeless and with no belongings or anything for Christmas. The donation was added to many others that got the family back on their feet to enjoy Christmas that year.
