One thing I have learned from blogging and just being active in the Warcraft community is how we stick together and how big of a heart gamers have. Starting June 30th a group of WoW gamers are going to have a WoWathon to raise money for Child's Play Charity. Child's Play raises money to buy electronic and board games for childrens in hospitals around the world. This gives children who are undergoing scary treatments a way to get their minds off their condition.
At 8am on June 30th they are going to create a Worgen Druid and Hunter duo (best classes evah!) named Chyld and Playy on Lightbringer-US. They will be leveling up their toons to 85. They have a goal set of $800 by the time they hit level 20 and an overall goal of $10,000. They have welcomed people to make toons with them but said they will keep groups near their level so they aren't power leveled.
If you would like more information please visit their website WoWathon. You can donate by clicking on the ChipIn widget on the sidebar of their webpage or the one I placed in the side bar of this page. You can also check out the Child's Play website for more information on the organization. In addition to monetary donations Child's Play is also looking for volunteers to do things such as hook up and maintain gaming systems at local hospitals.
