11-11-2013, 01:44 AM
Here's the latest on what The Waygate Foundation is up to, and I for one think it's something we can all get behind: getting kids into gaming!!

Waygate Foundation is excited to launch our November campaign supporting Child’s Play! (http://waygatefoundation.org/campaigns/childs-play/)

Child’s Play (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/) charity works to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the power of play. They collaborate with donors from the gamer community and video game industry to provide toys and games to a network of over 70 hospitals. Child’s Play works with each hospital staff to set up gift wish lists to allow children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment and provide a vital distraction for patients and their families.

75% of donations received during November will go to support Child’s Play in its mission, with the remainder going to support Waygate Foundation in its future charitable activities. And for a limited time, you can double your contribution to help children in need! Waygate Foundation is partnering with an anonymous donor to match up to $3000 in donations during the month of November.

As part of this campaign, we are offering a drawing to win one of several prizes such as a signed book from Brandon Sanderson or a print of the “Sanderfuge (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2013/09/30)” comic signed by Jerry Holkins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Holkins) and Mike Krahulik (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Krahulik). Enter by November 30 for a chance to win.
