This might be a bit early, but I thought it might be best to get these out there before everyone is buried in end-of-the-year holiday preparations…

Gabe and Tycho over at Penny Arcade are organizing the Child’s Play toy drive once again this year.  From the Child’s Play site

Since 2003, over 100,000 gamers worldwide have banded together through Child’s Play, a community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Over two million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.

Another option that is available again this year is the MMO Calendar 2008, being offered by the folks at, proceeds to benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  If it is anything like the 2007 edition, it will have some pretty nice game-related art… it made a nice addition to my study here at home.

As I run across additional ideas, I’ll post links.
