And the wonderful folks at Penny Arcade are once more running Child’s Play, a charity powered by the awesome power of apples….er, I mean gamers, to benefit sick kids across the country and around the world. You can donate games, toys, books and whatnot through Amazon.com, or make a direct cash donation through paypal.
