Here's some great news for your Monday morning: PAX East was a success for gamers with disabilities charity AbleGamers. They managed to raise $33,635.07 at the event, which more than doubles last year's total.

I recall that their Pachinko for Charity section saw non-stop action during PAX East. Pachinko players helped to get to this total, as did corporate donors and corporate matching. Paradox Interaction and Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos matched funds, while complies like EA, Behemoth, Uber Ent, and Deep Silver donated prizes.
