Get in the Charitable Spirit for Childs Play!
If you haven’t heard of it, Childs Play is a charity setup by the good folks at Penny Arcade. Every year it raises Millions of dollars that goes toward buying video games and such for various childrens hospitals around the world. If you have a soul and want to help kids who are sick and need a great distraction from the pain and scariness of being in a hospital here is a way for you to help. Wizards of the Coast is donating money based on the attendance of their M11 Launch Parties. Now, I’ll let you know how you can help a bunch of kids just by being a body in a room.
First, you click here to find a store near you that is having a launch party.
