Well tonight is the big night. Our Child’s Play charity dinner and auction kicks off this evening at 6:30. Kiko will be taking pictures all night so those of you who couldn’t make it can still get a peak at the fun.
There are all kinds of Child’s Play events happening and believe me we appreciate every single one of them. I just want to draw your attention to a few of them.
They may have the occasional insane opinion piece but for the most part Joystiq is a quality blog. They’re raffling off all kinds of swag that they’ve accumulated over the year as well as some donated prizes. The first of these many raffles is a PSP, some games and a Neuros MPEG4 recorder. Hit the site and watch for posts tagged raffle06.
Four webcomics have teamed up to create a pack of holiday themed post cards. The four webcomics involved are Staccato, Applegeeks, Angry Zen Master/Erfworld and VGCats. For twelve bucks you get 16 postcards and your money goes right to Child’s Play. Not a bad deal.
The guys at RetroBlast will be running contests for the entire month of December. They’ve got lots of awesome prizes to doll out over the course of the month like X-Arcade sticks, Game Tap subscriptions and even complete home arcade systems. Their first contest is up now and in order to win you’ll need to help raise awareness of Child’s Play by posting flyers. You can get all the details on their site.
Thanks again to all the people supporting Child’s Play this year. I can’t describe how incredible it is to watch something that literally started with four guys around a coffee table saying “can we make our own charity?” grow to this insane level. Almost $500,000.00 and we’re not even halfway through December. Amazing.
