Child's Play charity raised $3.5 million last year
Gamers are mindless grunts. We're idiots who don't know anything about culture, and all we like doing is playing games where we shoot monsters in the face. And don't even get us started on charity!
Actually, that's just what some horrible naysayers like to think. A lot of gamers are stand-up individuals. A lot of us like plenty of things outside of video games. And charity? Yeah, we like to support a good cause, too!
Child's Play announced earlier today that it raised $3,512,345 in 2011. That's a lot of green, all of which went to providing games, toys, and books for kids in hospitals. It's a warm and fuzzy type of scenario, and it's good to see so many people helping out a good cause.
Child's Play was founded in 2003, and since then the organization has helped to provide some fun stuff for kids in hospitals all around the nation. It's also proven plenty of naysayers wrong. Here's hoping 2012 sees another great year for the charity.
$3.5 million for charity--not bad for a group of "mindless grunts," eh?
