So it’s Friday and I have another Child’s Play update for you. We’ve added up all the toys and cash donations again and you guys are not going to believe where we are now. Remember that just last Friday the total was $260,000. Well as of today the new total is $495,000 in toys and cash! I’m not joking, you guys donated more than $230,000 in one fucking week! The crazy thing is it’s only the 8th of December. This is our fourth year running Child’s Play and you guys amaze me every single year.
Speaking of Child’s Play I want to point you all at GameTrailers.com. They’ve cooked up a really slick way of letting you support Child’s Play without actually spending a dime. So if you’ve wanted to help but you just don’t have the disposable income (we’ve all been there) this is your chance. GameTrailers has a sort of internal currency they call GTD (GameTrailers dollars). You earn GTD by participating in the site in all kinds of different ways. Watching videos, rating videos or even posting comments will net you GTD. Right now, for every 20 GTD that you donate through their site GameTrailers will donate one real dollar to Child’s Play. Your donation will also enter you in a raffle to win an Xbox 360. Their goal is $10,000 so hit their site and help them reach it.
Also, if you don’t see a hospital near you or you’re just having trouble picking a hospital to donate to please think about the Tulane Hospital for Children in New Orleans. I think we all know how bad they could use the help this year.
