Penny Arcade is once again holding a charity drive to make Christmas a little brighter for some of the many children who will spending their holidays cooped up in a hospital. The event is called Child’s Play, and you can find out more about it here.
Last year was a rousing success for the Seattle Children’s Hospital, and I was one of thousands of donors. This year, I will be donating again. If you’d like to donate, there are five different hospitals that you can contribute to. You can donate toys (with some exceptions, please see the FAQ) from the Amazon wishlists that have been set up, or you can simply donate cash. There are no administrative fees collected from any of this. Tycho, Gabe, and the rest of Child’s Play are doing this all for free, volunteering their time, money, and effort.
You may have heard about this on Slashdot, and if so, I apologize for wasting your time with this post. But things like these are important, and it’s the little bit I can do (besides donating) to help Child’s Play become a success again.
