It's Thanksgiving in the US today, so we've dug up the Christmas lights and started decorating the CIC. You might have to Shift-Refresh in order to see them. LOAF's off to France for the weekend, but the rest of of are still celebrating in #Wingnut. Come visit us if you've got nothing better to do!
PeteyG thought some of us might be interested in donating games to hospitalized children through the new Penny Arcade Child's Play holiday event.
I plan on donating some money via PayPal, but they are also accepting new items sent directly to them. If you can't think of anything to donate, there is always Prophecy Advance and give the kids a bit of Wing Commander cheer.
That's a great idea. If you might be interested in contributing, you can find out more about the program here.
With that in mind we have put together a little something we like to call “Child’s Play.” Penny Arcade is working with the Seattle Children’s Hospital and Amazon.com to make this Christmas really special for a lot of very sick kids. With the help of the Children’s Hospital we have created an Amazon Wish List for the kids. It’s full of video games, movies and toys. Some of these kids are in pretty bad shape and just having a Game Boy would really raise their spirits.
