Child’s Play charity opens in AUS

US-based Child’s Play charity, a charity dedicated to helping sick children in hospital with books and video games, has just opened up a branch here in Australia.

As described by Wiki-

Child’s Play is a charity founded by the authors of the popular satirical video game based webcomic Penny Arcade that organises worldwide toy drives to children’s hospitals. Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins founded Child’s Play in 2003 as a way to refute mainstream media’s perception of gamers as violent and antisocial. Through Child’s Play, fans have sent over 1 million dollars in toys, games and books to children’s hospitals all over the world. Child’s Play does not take out any money for administrative fees or other purposes.

The Australian wing, run by Daniel Mons and James Pinnell, has been getting some press in Brisbane recently, and they’ve managed to sign up Mater Children’s Hospital, but also Australia’s biggest children’s hospital, Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick, Sydney, as well.
