As you may or may not know, Child's Play is a charity founded by Mike and Jerry of the popular web-comic Penny Arcade. The aim of Child's Play is to improve the lives and raise the spirits of sick kids by donating toys and games to children's hospitals worldwide, hopefully combating the stereotype of gamers as violent, antisocial leeches upon society.
Though the charity accepts donations year round, the annual drive runs from November until the end of December, and Child's Play 2009 is officially a go.
In this spirit, I've decided to replace some of my ads with banners linking to the official Child's Play site. Even if you don't usually click on ads, please do follow these links and follow through by making a donation or two. In addition to this, one hundred percent of all ad revenue my blog makes (not that it's ever much) from today until the last day of the year will be donated to Child's Play. This isn't an incentive to click on my ads; if you feel tempted to do so purely to help out the charity, then rather go to the charity's site and make a donation directly.
