Penny Arcade Needs Your Help


You may have already seen this story elsewhere, but it's important enough to repeat here. Those reprehensible foul-mouthed know-it-alls Tycho and Gabe have initiated a pretty admirable campaign to share some gaming love over the holidays. Penny Arcade is basically holding a toy drive for some kids who really deserve it at Seattle Children's Hospital. Visit the wish list at Amazon and pick out a toy or two for these kids. It will be delivered to the guys and they'll take it over to the Children's Hospital. There are more details at Penny Arcade, and they've said they'll try and keep the news o­n the front page for a while. They're trying to get everything by Dec. 20th so don't put it off for too long.


I went through their entire wish-list process and it really couldn't be much easier. It looks like they're adding new stuff now, too, because of the positive response. It's not just all video games either. There's a wide variety of toys I wouldn't have minded having for myself!

That's pretty cool of them. I'd definitely join in if I wasn't already buying gifts for two kids from the giving tree at work.

This is a fantastic idea. I encourage anyone who can to contribute.

I have PayPal'd them a ludicrously small amount. Damn you, weak exchange rate. Damn you to hell.

Yeah, I have to agree, this is one of the cooler ideas I've seen on the internet in awhile.
