Child's Play - Where Gamers Give Back

Child's Play, the Seattle-based charity started by Penny-Arcade founders, Jerry Holkins & Mike Krahulik, that donates gifts of video games has already managed to raise $495,000 this year. But really that is just a good start.

With 37 hospitals this year registered with the charity, donations need to be more than ever before. Expectations are high as one of the biggest fundraisers, the charity dinner, will not take place until December 13th in Bellevue, Washington. Along with the dinner is a silent auction that raises quite a bit. This year's auction items include:

      -Original Penny Arcade Artwork
      -Tickets to the Halo 3 launch party
      -A Microsoft Xbox 360 game system
      -A Microsoft Zune ultra pack
      -Alien Hominid skateboards
      -ATI Radeon X1900XTX video cards
      -Pirates of the Burning Sea Treasure Packs
      -Signed Guildwars Nightfall Collector Editions
      -Seattle Seahawks Club Level Tickets
      -A WidowPC Sting 517D Laptop
      -A Dell XPS 700 Desktop computer system
      -A Dell XPS 1710 Notebook computer system
      -A trip to Iceland for 2 and a tour of CCP Games
      -An appearance in the Penny Arcade Adventures videogame

“A huge thank you to all of you who are helping improve the lives of kids this holiday season,” said Penny Arcade’s Robert Khoo. “The generous support of the game community has allowed Child’s Play to grow each year, reaching more children in more cities around the world.”

But they could certainly use more donations. Go to and donate this holiday season.
