Child's Play Charity

A recent press release has revealed that this year’s Child’s Play Gala and Auction helped raise $351,000.

The donations from the videogame community are part of an ongoing effort by the Child’s Play Charity to provide hospitalized children with toys, games, and cash.

Some of the more noteworthy items sold at this year’s auction were the life-zied Half-Life Gravity Gun and a very rare Nintendo World Championships cartridge. The two items sold for $21,000 and $11,500 respectively.

Taking into account donations from the auction, the total contributions to the Child’s Play Charity this year have reached $1.95 million.

Gamers can learn more about this great cause at the Child’s Play Charity website.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
