[OUT] Caer Galen Toys for Tots

The time draws nigh for people of the Outlands to once again come forward and show the world how things should be. How the concepts of Chivalry, Courtesy, and Honor didn't die in the Middle Ages, but live on today in those of us who think those things still matter. Time once again for us to help those less fortunate find hope in these troubling times.
