Child’s Play, the annual charity brain-spawn of 2 of our beloved geeks Mike ‘Gabe’ Krahulik and Jerry ‘Tycho’ Holkins, has raised over a million dollars this year for bored sick children across the globe. Last year, we participated by creating the +1 Obsidian Portal Chest of Wonders, and it was GLORIOUS. It was also a huge trunk literally heaving with swag that I had to carry up a flight of stairs.
This year we have a solution that doesn’t require any stairs AND you can help us help the children! Really, it’s a win-win. Introducing: The +1 Obsidian Portal Givathon of Wonders! From now until December 31st, 2010, we’ve removed all banner ads and replaced them with a ChipIn charity tracking widget! Watch this magical little widget throughout the coming weeks and your heart will soar as you bear witness to the collective generosity of your fellow gamers in the Obsidian Portal community lend aid to children in need. Heck, I’ve already donated 50 bucks and I have warm fuzzies all over. All over.
So join us in helping kids get through the toughest times in their young lives, won’t you? What if we tell you that we’ll throw in another $500 if you help us hit the $2000 mark by the end of 2010? Awesome! So let’s spread some holiday cheer, action points, and bennies all for the little ones, Christmas Joys!
