Go buy some games

The next phase of Make Room for Kids, the charity arm of That’s Church is in full swing, and you can help while getting a good laugh.

Check out this Amazon Wish List for the games that are left that need purchased.  And make sure you read the descriptions that Ginny has added.  They are golden.  Take for instance, the description of the Force Unleashed for the DS:

“I can make objects travel across the room to my hand via The Force. Also, I call my husband “The Force.””

Games are going quick, so take a look (you can ship directly to the Mario Lemieux Foundation, it’s the address provided with the Wish List, even though it won’t be listed publicly) and pitch in what you can.

Make Room for Kids, now live!

Kicked off this weekend by a fundraiser at Las Velas(best phrase/fundraising idea ever: Shots for Tots), Make Room for Kids is now accepting donations, courtesy of the Mario Lemieux Foundation.

Head on over to That’s Church to make a donation.

Monday: Make Room for Kids

 Virgina Montanez, aka PittGirl, has announced the name of her fundraising effort for a game room for Children’s Hospital.

More information about how this came to be is available here, but here’s the crux of the issue:

The point is that you and me, WE are giving this room to these kids as a gift and we’re essentially letting them know that there’s a whole city of people that would really like to see them kick the hell out of whatever it is they’re fighting at the moment.

Donations will start to be accepted on Monday, courtesy of the Mario Lemieux Foundation.

One of the coolest things is besides the TVs, game systems, PCs and games, the goal is also go buy some portable gaming devices as well.  Child’s Play raises money for this kind of thing across the country (for whatever reason, they did not respond, nor do they raise money for any hospital in Pittsburgh), but I do not know if they ever include portable devices as well.  Even if they do, it’s a good addition.

I’ll post more as this kicks off on Monday, I’m sure in the meantime it will be making its way around the Pittsburgh new media scene, hopefully Metblogs can help just a little bit!
