Before the soft geeky glow of PAX fades completely for the year, I want to make my pitch for the Child’s Play Charity. Known as “the gamers’ charity”, Child’s Play was set up by Gabe and Tycho of Penny Arcade. The charity gives toys and games to children in hospitals all over the world. Since 2004 Child’s Play has raised over $1.3 million for sick kids.
You can donate money directly via PayPal or snail mail, or, even better, buy some stuff from the Amazon wishlists set up for each hospital and have it sent directly to the hospital of your choice.
So next time you put in that Amazon pre-order, add just one item for a sick kid who would enjoy it just as much, if not more, than you. Thanks.
You can find complete information about Child’s Play at their official website, ChildsPlayCharity.org.
