Child’s Play Raises $3.5M

File Under: Holy Fucking Shit

I like what Jerry Holkins said:

Robert sent me a mail entitled “Child’s Play” which included the following in the body of the message:


$3,512,345. What that means is that in the space of a single year, donations eclipsed the first five years of the charity combined. I don’t really know how to contextualize that; it would be as though a loose association of individuals, bound by a shared interest, created a wholly organic charity network that defies every available trend and model.

Except it’s not “like” that, it’s precisely what happened.

Hooray for gamers! And Imma take this opportunity to give another high-five to my friends over at Indie Games for Good for having contributed over $6,000 to that pile (holy fucking shit!).
