Helping Childrens’ Hopsitals

I’m reminded every once in awhile that humanity really can be good at its core when I read things like Steven Frank’s deeds yesterday. See, he and all his friends bought brand new Nintendo DS Lites this past week when they hit the market. Why? Because they’re cool. But, that left behind their prior handheld gaming units, like the DS and PSP. But, these are still perfectly awesome gaming systems, so why not be like Child’s Play and donate the systems to a local children’s hospital?

So, if you just bought a brand spanking new gaming system, and think that your older handheld could use a new home where it might benefit a child, why not drop it off at Children’s Hospital? Or, if you’re feeling a little more donate-y today than usual, check DC Children’s Hospital’s Amazon Wishlist and pick something out that they might need. It sucks being in the hospital, but it only sucks worse when it’s a kid who should be out playing instead. Help kids play, even when they’re hurting, and it does the world some good.

    I’m all for helping out, but who oh why do they have Justin Timberlake and Britney CDs on their wishlist?

    Kids got no taste in music.
