Teens, gaming and charity

The library literature is crazy about gaming (both good and bad). Well if your library is looking to raise funds, this holiday season, for a fabulous charity and -- perhaps -- highlight the work gaming does in bringing teens in to the library. Why don't you check out Childs Play.
Since 2003, over 100,000 gamers worldwide have banded together through Child's Play, a community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Over two million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children's hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.

This year, we have continued expanding across the country and the globe. With over 45 partner hospitals and more arriving every month, you can be sure to find one from the map above that needs your help! You can choose to purchase requested items from their online retailer wish lists, or make a cash donation that helps out Child's Play hospitals everywhere. Any items purchased through Amazon will be shipped directly to your hospital of choice, so please be sure to select their shipping address rather than your own.

When gamers give back, it makes a difference!

There's even a hospital, that would benefit, in Oklahoma.
