Happy GivingTuesday!

Happy GivingTuesday!

Child's Play

For those of you who don't know, GivingTuesday is a concept that began last year and has taken hold quickly. Namely, the idea is that after the Black Friday & Cyber Monday holiday rush, we all take some time to give back and donate to those who might need a little help. When we learned about this, of course we jumped at the opportunity to celebrate the second annual GivingTuesday!

The first thing that came to mind: What would the holidays be without supporting Child's Play? A charity near & dear to many geek hearts, and one our monkeys are particularly fond of. If you're not familiar, Child's Play is a non-profit game industry charity, dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in hospitals worldwide. We've made our donation & hope to help them reach their $3,000,000 fundraising goal for 2013!

Doorways for Women and Families

We also got in touch with a local-to-ThinkGeek charity, Doorways for Women and Families. Doorways provides housing, supplies, and supportive services to protect mothers and their children from domestic abuse and homelessness. We've got a large number of our baby bibs and women's & kids' shirts at our HQ that Timmy & co. will be hand-delivering to their office. We hope you'll consider volunteering or donating to their cause!

Happy GivingTuesday, everyone! Don't stop there, though--we hope the giving continues all year long!
