Hello, Podwalkers, and welcome to the Goblin Lore Podcast! May was Mental Health Awareness Month and the plan was for all the episodes this month to relate to important topics within Mental Health. We also participated (along with other excellent creators) in #MentalHealthMtG and attempting to raise money for MH Organizations!! A Big Part of that was a Our Own Giveaway!! Thank you to Taya for adding a whole second deck, Ursa for an altered card, Ewan for Tokens, and Jeff Laubenstein for signed art prints! Whew that was lot!
Today we did the giveaway, talk about where we were last week, where we're going coming up and then about the Four Clown Throw Down for the Trevor Project!! In this the Goblin Lore's own Krarkashima will be taking on some other creators (The Monarch Mountie; The Chainguin; Big Papa Jank) in an epic show down of epic proportions. Seriously though go watch the video ... and then come out and support The Trevor Project this Saturday! Yes there are prizes again!!
As a reminder you can find links to MH Resources below.
We also are proud to have partnered with Grinding Coffee Co a black, LGBT+ affiliated and owned, coffee business that is aimed at providing coffee to gamers. You can read more about their mission here. You can use our partner code for discounted coffee!
As promised, we plan to keep these Mental Health Links available moving forward too. For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI's site.
