HEMA Charity 2014

This time I ask you to really take your time and consider this new project. Also, I would like to ask all of your assistance in spreading this to your club, your organization and fighting friends:

It never ceases to amaze me what incredible people that make up the Historical Fencing community. Your hospitality, openness, willingness to share and generosity is second to none and just recently it struck me; Why not put that awesomeness to good use for a specific charity purpose?

So, I made a quick decision and from now on, for two months every year, HROARR will be gathering funds for a specific, internationally recognized charity organization.

Please help spread this so we can make a difference! I think it is a great way to help people in desperate need while celebrating the chivalric ideals of both the knights/nobles and the burgher fencing guilds, which both emphasized helping the weak and poor, and in particular widows and orphans.

So tell your club mates and training partners. We have already gathered funds to feed 31 people for a month in just two days of running the charity. But I am sure we can do a lot better. And every dollar counts. As little as 5€ will feed a person for two full weeks.
