    Child’s Play Charity garnered $1.7 million in 2009

    by Danielle Riendeau on Jan 9, 2010 at 01:56 PM

    Some really fantastic news coming from Penny Arcade today – the Child’s Play charity, which seeks to raise money for ” toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals” raised $1,780, 870 in 2009. It was a record-breaking, banner year, in which the goal was set at $1 million – which is incredible, given the state of the economy (and the abysmal unemployment rate).

    It’s not too late to give, either. From the site’s recent update:

    “As we wrap up our toy drive season, you can still help Child’s Play out year round. We accept cash donations through PayPal and by check to the address above, and the Amazon wish lists will remain accessible. You can also show your support by purchasing a Child’s Play t-shirt, available in men’s and women’s styles (100% of proceeds will go to Child’s Play!). Thank you very much for your support, and we’ll be back next November!”

    Sincere congratulations to Child’s Play and a big thank you to everyone who helped out. It’s always wonderful to see gamers really step up and contribute to such a great cause.
