In brief: Gabe Newell apparently jokingly told a guy he’d take a look at his Left 4 Dead campaign if he flew him and Erik Johnson to his home. In Australia.

Guy immediately got on it. And raised the cash in under three days.

“The English language lacks the words to express the level of excitement Erik and I feel that you and your friends have pulled this off,” said Newell in response.

Gabe’s going to Australia. Big up, guy. Thanks, Joystiq.
