Video Game Charity Raises Over $2 Million For Sick Kids

Child's Play - a charity founded by Penny Arcade's Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins - managed to raise over $US2 million during the course of 2010. Amazing.

The charity, which is geared at providing entertainment (video games in particular) for kids stuck in hospital, brought in $US2,294,317 from various events, functions and donations over the year, which is impressive in its own right. Consider that it brings Child's Play's lifetime earnings to nearly $US10 million and it's something to be marvelled at.

While much of that tally is made up of individual donations, some notable big-time givers include the Humble Indie Bundle crew ($300,000), the Desert Bus For Hope Marathon ($207,000) and Microsoft's "Fate of Carmine" event ($150,000).

    freaking awesome. Good on them. I'm very proud to have played a (very tiny, it seems) part in that $10 million.
