The gaming community's collective back is in desperate need of a thorough patting -- with recent donations raked in by events like the Desert Bus for Hope
marathon and the Penny Arcade auction dinner
, the total for Child's Play donations
has reached 1.2 million American dollars
That doesn't mean that you should stop donating -- in fact, the organization still needs a bit more fungible support to beat last year's total of $1.7 million. You don't want history to remember 2010 as the year we all became less
charitable, do you? That would be humiliating.
