Child's Play Donation Drive

For those of you who haven't read the Hoop & Stick/RavenCon thread, you may not know that Ravenwood Castle is raising money for one of my favorite charities, Child's Play. We're doing that in two ways: with a convention dedicated to raising money (that's RavenCon), and through an online donation drive.

I know quite a few of us in the GWJ community like Penny Arcade and the good work they're doing through Child's Play, and I'm sure that a lot of you would be willing to throw a few bucks towards the cause. Since we haven't done an official Child's Play donation drive here on GWJ, I thought I'd throw this out there to the community as a substitute.

We're running the donations through ChipIn!, which is Child's Play's preferred collection method. The money from the online donations goes directly to Child's Play, it does not pass through Ravenwood Castle's hands at any point. At the end of RavenCon, we'll be donating the funds collected at the event through the ChipIn! as well.

The donation drive widget can be found at the top left of our RavenCon page at

The online drive will run for the month preceding the convention. I had to launch a bit early as I'll be out of town for the next week, but I don't think a few extra days will hurt.

Thanks in advance!
