Bundle of Holding sent the e-mail yesterday, but I didn’t see it until today. They are celebrating the site’s 7th birthday today. Bundle ends in about 9.5 hours from this post (12:12 P. M. U. S. Central Time). If you have access to a 3D printer, you can get the files free at https://www.shapeways.com/shops/dots-rpg-project-dice-shop. You can purchase the dice direct from DOTS RPG Project, but they tend to be expensive. They do charge the printing cost.
Disclosure: All of the 6 PDFs available in the Starter Collection and the 7 additional PDFs in the Bonus Collection are available free elsewhere, mostly on DriveThru RPG (DTRPG). So why should you pay to get them from Bundle of Holding? First, minus the gateway fees, the money collected will be donated to a nonprofit – DOTS RPG Project, a nonprofit originally dedicated to making Role=Playing Games (RPGs) available to the blind and visually impaired, but has expanded its focus to gamers with any disability.
Second, for the Starter Collection, it’s only $1 with the Bonus Collection being $2 minimum. So far, as of a few minutes ago, 483 bundles have been purchased raising $2,279.50 (minus gateway fees), average $4.71. Several people have contributed $20+ dollars.

WE WANT YOUR MONEY FOR FREE GAMES
Through TOMORROW (Friday, February 21) we present the 2020 Birthday Bundle, a charity offer. Once again we’re celebrating our birthday with a brazen request: We want you to pay money for free roleplaying games — for a good cause.
The Bundle of Holding launched 20 February 2013. We mark the site’s seventh anniversary with this benefit offer featuring high-quality free RPGs we wouldn’t otherwise be able to present in the Bundle format. You can download all these RPGs free elsewhere around the web (links below). But, for just a small donation, you get convenient access to them on your Wizard’s Cabinet download page on the Bundle site and in your DriveThruRPG Library — and your entire donation (after gateway fees) goes to this offer’s designated charity, The DOTS RPG Project. The DOTS RPG Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2017, makes roleplaying games accessible to visually impaired players and other people with disabilities. DOTS has created 3D-printable Braille polyedral dice and Fate dice models, transcribes rulebooks in Braille, and works with publishers to address screen-reader accessibility.
Donate just US$1 to get all six free ebooks in our Starter Collection as DRM-free .PDFs, including Heroes Against Darkness (a d20 FRPG from Hero Forge), Mercator (a conversion of Classic Traveller to the early Roman Empire), and all four issues of the remarkable mid-’90s journal of RPG criticism and analysis from Magnum Opus Press, Interactive Fantasy.
And if you instead donate $2, you’ll get all those titles and also our entire Bonus Collection with eight more books, including all four core books in the Harryhausen-inspired Old School RPG from Legrand Games Studio, Mazes & Minotaurs (the Players Manual, Maze Masters Guide, Creature Compendium, and M&M Companion); Lightmaster, the retro-clone from Gurbintroll Games for all those who fondly remember Iron Crown Enterprises and zillions of critical-hit tables (both the Lightmaster Core Rulebook and the essential Book of Tables); Never Tell Me the Odds, the space-scoundrel game of risking everything; and Icar, a far-future SFRPG about a benevolent empire protecting humanity from its worst enemy: itself.
