Gumroad Charity


F or the month of January I will be donating 100% of my Gumroad sales to Point Foundation and Doctors Without Borders.

If anyone wants to match my final donation, you will be eligible to receive a swag bag from me which will contain some signed Magic: The Gathering proofs and original sketches.

Your matched donation doesn’t need to be donated to the same charities, you can choose your own. You will of course need to provide your donation confirmation to be considered. I will only pick one winner at random to receive the swag bag. The winner will be picked in February.

Please share this with as many people as you can. I’m going to keep this post updated with sales numbers so that everyone can get an idea of how much will be donated at the end of the month. Let’s try and get it up to at least $500!

Update – I am going to be adding Planned Parenthood and the ACLU to the mix of charities that I will donate my sales to.

Update 2-1-17 – We raised a total of $492.73 from Gumroad and another $50 from a direct PayPal donation, bringing the total to $542.73! Thanks so much for your support! Below are my donation confirmations.

Last Stand in Red – 2010

Last Stand in Red

I released a “new” tutorial for my Gumroad charity initiative, Last Stand in Red. This will give people who have already purchased my other Gumroad tutorials the opportunity to purchase a new video and still donate to charity. Since this is a special charity video, I will always donate 100% of the sales of this video to charity every month.

Depending on how many sales this video receives, I will probably only donate the sales to one charity at a time. I’m not sure if I will always donate to the same charity or if I will rotate them. Right now the choices will probably be the same ones I already mentioned (Planned Parenthood, Doctors without Borders, Point Foundation), but I might add new ones later on. IRC is another option that I’ve donated to in the past.

If anyone ever wants to see my donation confirmation for a specific month, please feel free to ask. Thanks!

      What is the error? I’m not aware of any problems, so I’m not sure what to look for.


  2. What a great idea!!! I will try to donate the last week of January 😀 One idea that maybe make people be more active is add to the sales and weeks, how much people donate. Excellent idea and I will share everywhere!
