The 2005 Child's Play charity website is up

Child's Play is a charity founded by the Penny Arcade owners Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins (or Gabe and Tycho). In 2003 they had an idea to rally the video gaming community they had built around Penny Arcade for a good cause. They figured their 150,000 members would willingly and generously give to charity. And they were right. Through Child's Play people have sent nearly a million dollars in toys, games, and cash to the sick kids in Children'’s Hospitals around the nation.

Penny Arcade works with hospitals, this year for the first time outside of the US as well, and Amazon.com to set up Amazon.com wishlists for video games, toys, and movies. Donators can then go to Amazon.com and purchase items on the wishlist to be sent to the hospital.

Please give generously. I know I will.
