Gamers from around the world have now donated $1.8 million in toys, games, and more to benefit kids in hospitals and domestic violence shelters in 2013! With the holidays fast approaching, it's easy to get caught up in plans and celebrations: the fact that so many gamers make an effort to positiviely impact the lives of kids in a tough situation is absolutely inspirational. If you'd like to give, you can do so by donating here, or picking items off an Amazon wishlist for a specific facility here.
Like many around the world, our thoughts over the past week have been with communities impacted by Typhoon Haiyan. If you're interested in donating directly to the cause, a list of recommended non-profits from Guidestar can be found here. We know firsthand how incredibly generous gamers can be, and there are many people in desperate need there.
Our 10th Anniversary celebration Dinner Auction is December 5th and there are still a few tickets left. If you're interested in donating an auction item, email Jamie - [email protected] - the auction is always an incredible mix of game collectibles, unique art, tours of incredible studios, and more. You don't want to miss it!
In case you're just tuning in for the holidays, we just announced an expansion of Child's Play: we will now be assisting children in domestic violence shelters. Our pilot program is well underway and we're planning to open applications for the general program in Spring 2014. Read more about the program here, and if you have any questions, feel free to email Jamie ([email protected]).
As always, thank you for your incredible support!
