Child’s Play Raises $1.4 Million for Charity

Joystiq reports that Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play Charity raised an amazing $1.4 million for sick children during its recent fund drive:

The annual Child’s Play charity fund is known for accumulating outlandish quantities of money from the gaming community — this year was no exception. Button-mashing altruists not only met the charity’s lofty $750,000 goal, they nearly doubled it, bringing in a total of $1,434,377…

    Good on you guys…

    We all have to do our little part to show to some people that Gamers are also nice people who care.

    Also the industry for a long time has been trying to highlight to parents about the ESRB, even when things were tough people in the industry were always there doing their part to highlight the videogame ratings system to help the parents.

    Is that really what they believe on the planet you’re from?

    Anyway, much love to the guys at Child’s Play, and everyone who contributed.  Certainly not easy to find extra money lying around these days.

    Oh please no!  Emma Watson is just fine as she is.  No one needs to be burdened with a monstrous pair of breasts – neither the woman carrying them or the man who gets to touch them.  More than a handful is a waste.

    Truly Awesome, and this year I contributed the most I ever have to childs play. More than I should have probably. But I was in the giving mood. 😉
