Penny Arcade’s annual Child’s Play charity comes to a close, demolishes records


Penny Arcade’s Child’s Play charity – which sees gamers of all walks of life and stations of play donate cash to sick children in hospitals – recently wrapped up its 08/09 campaign. The final tally? Excuse us for a moment as we shove aside a few words to make space for this gargantuan number.


This, of course, smashes Child’s Play’s 2007 record of $1.3 million. All to purchase games and toys for sick children. And people say gamers are a despicable lot.

Great job to everyone who donated, and here’s to an incredibly child-friendly 2009/2010 season.

Thanks, Kotaku.
