On the official EverQuest II Forums a player posted a sad plea:
My 6 yr old son has cancer and was recently given 6 – 12 weeks to live.
He has a frog that he likes to run around Tenebrous Tangle Island on; however, it is sparse and he has requested to add trees, fences, stairs, animals and all kinds of other items to make his island fun and exciting.
Are there any decorators out there that would be willing to assist in adding these items (and any others their imagination poses) to help me make the island even more fun for him. I don’t know how much I’ll be able to accomplish on my own while still providing him quality time to enjoy it.
The EQ2 community has rallied around Ribbitribbitt. A guild has been created and players of all types are grinding status to get him a Tier 3 guild hall by Saturday. Players have donated decorations and even status houses to give him his choice of playgrounds.
Many members of different large guilds on Guk have begun to form a community event this Saturday at 1pm PST on Mara Island. With the thoughtfulness of Zam and what looks to be the inclusion of EQ2 community team it should be a great thing for this family!
Hellzelves tells us “On Saturday we will get together to decorate everything and finish up the crafting at 4 eastern/1 pacific. End game raiders will be taking all comers for duelbets for the cause.”

Why Wasn’t This Posted Sooner?
I have received several e-mails and messages from people asking why I have not posted this news sooner. The reason is simple. I’m afraid of the vile, cruel, and heartless comments people would post. I have been very accepting of people’s points of view in Comments, and the end result has been really one step above EQ2Flames level.
So I hoped that people would find out through the Homeshow Channel, the EQ2 Forums, Zam, etc. But I’ve decided to go ahead and post it.
If you want to use this article as your playground for disgusting comments, you may find yourself getting a vacation for a while.
