Child’s Play

Hi everybody. I hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a good one.

I am sure most of you are already familiar with Child’s Play. For those who are not, it is a charity set up by Gabe and Tycho from Penny Arcade. Its goal is to provide games, toys, and entertainment to children in hospitals. The charity is doing exceedingly well but there will always be more sick children and they will always need more donations.

I was a sick child myself. I spent a lot of time at Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis and thanks to their fantastic care I am here today, able to bring you these silly comics. But I know firsthand how rough it can be for a kid in the hospital with nothing to do. Tonight I discovered that Riley has a Child’s Play Amazon Wishlist where anyone who wishes to do so can purchase an item and have it sent to the hospital.

I urge you to take a look at that list and see if there’s something you might like to buy for a child. Or check out the Child’s Play homepage to find a hospital that may be more significant to you, or click on that Paypal button to send in a donation. It doesn’t have to be much; even a few dollars here and there will add up.

My sincere thanks to anyone who chooses to help in whatever way. Thank you for helping to bring a little bit of cheer into a painful experience. May the new year treat you well. Thanks for listening.
