This Year’s Child’s Play Charity is underway. Here is a description from their site: “Since 2003, gamers have banded together through registered Seattle-based charity, Child’s Play. Over a million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.”
Video game players tend to get a bad rep because of the media’s great job of highlighting a few bad stories…
The creators of Penny Aracade, an online comic about video games started this charity to change that. As you can see, in the last couple of years, we (the community) have generated over a millions dollars in donations and toys!
Donating even a book, one game, a toy, or a few dollars can help a child get through some pain in a children’s hospital.
