When I was checking download numbers for Depth of Heresy, I noticed this news tidbit at FileFront:
For those who don't like following links and the like, here's the gist. The Child's Play charity had set a goal of $1,000,000 this year for their fundraising efforts. The grand total they brought in? $1,135,000. So not only did they meet the goal, but they significantly passed it.
It goes on to say the following:
So if people had wanted to donate in one form or another but found their finances a bit too tight, donations of various forms can be made throughout the year.The hospital wish lists are still online, and some have seen new items added. While we try to get lots of new games and more to the children in time for the holidays, the hospitals have a need for equipment year-round. Likewise, we will continue to accept donations through Amazon, PayPal and the mail until next year’s fundraiser kicks off.
