Hey now, all you guys know what time of year it is!
So, I'm going to assume everyone reading this has been on the internet before (if not: hello and welcome! You should brace yourself. Just... you know, in general) so I'm pretttttty sure you've heard of Child's Play
or at least Penny Arcade
. If you said "Yes, moron" then click on those links right now and donate. If you said "Uh, yeah, totally!" and shuffled around uneasily hoping no one noticed that quaver of doubt in your voice, then click on those links anyway. *coughn00b*
All you need to know is that Child's Play
is a charity run by the dudes who do the webcomic Penny Arcade
, and what they do is raise money and collect donations of toys and games and other fun stuff for children's hospitals around the world so that sick kids can have a happy holiday season. It's a pretty awesome way for gamers in particular, and the internet in general, to shed our stereotype of being a bunch of lonely misanthropic jackasses and show that, hey man, we care too, and when people come together as a community we can do some totally mathematical stuff.
Now I'm gonna throw those links at you one more time, just to make sure they stick.
