Child’s Play

Child\'s Play Charity

Happy Cyber Monday! Today is the biggest online shopping day of the year, and I suppose that’s because if you didn’t find it in stores over the long Thanksgiving weekend, you hit the net today and picked up some slack. While you’re at it, may I make a little suggestion:

The hilarious folk over at Penny Arcade have a charity called Child’s Play and it’s seriously about the kids… Those cooped up in hospitals during the holidays. For the past three years, the fans of the online comic (gamers & geeks) have contributed toys and video games to help out. Though it’s not yet December, they’re now halfway to this year’s goal.

Should you want to be a part of making the season brighter for kids, you need only visit these links to the official site, where you’ll find a map of children’s hospitals, each linked to their respective wish lists on Heaven knows we all shop online there anyway, so you might as well join me and add something to your cart for the cause.

    PS: I also encourage you to spread the word on your own blog, should you feel so inclined.

    I’m glad Children’s Hospital in San Diego is on the list I usually visit for the annual toy drive they do for Christmas. They have some of the most amazing kids there!

    Kudos for promoting Child’s Play.

    Once I found out that this was some kind of ‘official online shopping day’ I deliberately avoided buying anything. Since I boycott ‘Black Friday’ it seemed only fair to abstain from ‘Cyber Monday’ as well.
