Child’s Play

I’m gonna keep this one posted to the top of the page for a while; and we still have no snow :-D.

The guys over at Penny Arcade have teamed up with Amazon.com and Seattle Children’s Hospital to create Child’s Play.

Child’s Play lets people purchase items off from an Amazon.com wish list these items will then be given to the children at the hospital on Christmas.

To quote Gabe

Let’s give these kids the Christmas that they deserve and let’s give the news papers a different kind of story to write about gamers.

And a little about the Seattle Children’s Hospital

Children’s Hospital has always remained constant in their mission to care for all children regardless of a family’s resources. Since we opened our doors in 1907, no child has ever been turned away because a family’s inability to pay. In 2003, the hospital is expected to provide over $32 million in uncompensated care. In addition Children’s is in partnership with the University of Washington in a commitment to research. As you can see, your support literally helps us to keep our doors open to all patients.
