Please share, like and spread so that we can ensure we have a successful event and more donations to supporting our cause.
There will be an initial sale of 60 tickets, with five scholarship tickets available. We may release a second wave of tickets if there is enough interest in increasing our population.
The ticket will include a planned 14 hour event this February, including workshopping and safety briefings and debriefings.
With your standard ticket, each participant will receive a free downloadable copy of This War of Mine (a $19.99 value), that they may give away or use themselves. This will be for the PC version of the game. Once again, we would like to thank 11-bit Studios for their incredible generosity in supporting our event.
You will also be able to increase your donation to Children in Conflict, or donate without buying a ticket. Participants who donate more to the charity will be considered for more prominent roles or special situations.
The basic cost for A War of Our Own ticket is $60. This price includes a donation to Children in Conflict, the American partner of War Child. Our intention is for $30 of the ticket price to go to Children in Conflict or related charities, and $30 to go to our operating costs, food for volunteers, gas for vehicles and site fees.
You will also be able to increase your donation to Children in Conflict, or donate without buying a ticket. Players who donate more to the charity will be considered for more prominent roles or special situations.
You might ask – why is the basic donation rolled into the ticket price? Two reasons – we wanted to have a minimum donation associated with the event; and we wanted some flexibility with addressing surprise costs or surprise surpluses. All proceeds will be going to Children in Conflict or related charities, but if a cold day calls for us to provide a box of hand warmers to our volunteers or we end up using less money than we expected, we want the flexibility to support the event and get as much donations as possible to Children in Conflict.
There will be options to support ‘scholarship’ tickets for those who wish to support the event but cannot attend. Players who would like to attend but are not financially able will be able to apply for a free scholarship ticket later this year.
