Child's Play

Last year my husband introduced me to a new charity. A young man decided he was fed up with people saying computer gamers were warped angry geeks and yadda yadda so instead of getting angry he decided to prove "them" wrong. He opened a request to the gaming community asking for game systems, games and toys to donate to his local children's hospital. He was BLOWN AWAY by the response. Over $250,000 in toys and cash was donated. It was so incredible! I get goose bumps just thinking about it.

Well, this year it has expanded, and it will only continue to grow. There are now more hospitals to donate to and a partnership has been formed with Amazon. It is all a very cool way to help a lot of sick kids. Check it out at
