I’ve been giving to the Child’s Play Charity for 5 years now and it was one of the most fulfilling ways I could think of sharing the extra money I had. Since then my donations have grown to encompass the Indie Humble Bundle, Extra-Life Charity, and a local food pantry. Giving is a fantastic habit to start, so why not give what you can by using one of the various ways I’ve listed or by choosing one of the Child’s Play links above.
