Too Much Holiday, Too Little Money...

No, this isn't a thinly veiled rant about all the hottest releases being released in the holiday season, but really more of a need to give to others. Well, I can't really twist anyone's arm or judge them on their decision, seeing I'm just some faceless drone on the internet, but I'd like to do my part to get the word around.

I just recently read about The Child's Play Charity today, and while I would like to donate several DS games and am definitely buying a inexpensive toy for the cause; I wish I could do more.
Being a fulltime student and paying rent leaves me not too much disposable income to play with. I don't know about you guys, but I couldn't imagine how great it would be to have some kid born with AIDS or suffering from cancer or something that would make their life truly miserable, open up a present only to find a brand new PS2 from a complete stranger!
I've never been in a hospital for more than a few hours myself, so I couldn't imagine what it's like to spend your childhood inside of one. What a better way to kill some time than with some Tetris or taking care of a Nintendog.

At the risk of sounding preachy or sounding like Bono; This season, just squirrel away $10 or so, visit The Child's Play site, pick a hospital, and go make some kid's holiday season something to look forward to.
