This year’s “Penny Arcade Child’s Play” charity fundraiser has raised over $1 million dollars. The annual fundraiser began in 2003 as a way of raising money to improve the lifestyle of children around the world.
From an article in Softpedia, Mike Krahulik, co-creator of Penny Arcade, was quoted as saying:
“This is Child’s Play’s seventh year, and this is the fastest we have ever gotten to the million dollar mark. Considering everything that’s going on [with the economy], that’s just astounding.”
