“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” – Aristotle

The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) was formed with the belief our shared international community of tabletop hobbyists were capable of joining together to accomplish acts of significance to the world. Three incredible works of art have sustained that faith.

The 2013 NOVA Open Charitable Foundation Army Raffle campaign ends in less than two weeks. To date, over 6,000 tickets have been sold with the help of generous supporters like Justin McCoy (Secret Weapon Miniatures), NATFKA (Faeit212), DakkaDakka, TabletopGamingNews, Bartertown, thePaintingCorps – and, of course, the SPONSORS and ARTISTS themselves.

At the end of July, the above community posted together and, within three days, nearly 2500 tickets were sold.  In this Final Online Push to sell raffle tickets, the NOCF is hoping all of you can break that record by twice.

The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation (NOCF) is launching a FINAL ONLINE PUSH, calling the Worldwide Compassionate Force of tabletop wargamers together to support the Charity Army Raffles:

Redemption of the Fallen in support of Medecins sans Frontieres (aka Doctors Without Borders)

House of the Silent King in support of The Fisher House Foundation

Lightish Red Army in support of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Every army is complete and snug in their custom-fit KR Multicases. Each case has been augmented with custom artwork incorporating each force’s unique logo – these armies are one-of-a-kind every way you look at them!

In less than two weeks, the world can watch the drawings by logging onto the 11th Company Podcast’s U-Stream Sunday night, September 1, 2013, between 7:30 and 8:15pm EST.

You need not be present to win. The NOCF will ship each army to its new owner anywhere on the planet where delivery is possible!
