Play-Asia teamed up with Cheap Ass Gamer to raise funds through a raffle for Child’s Play Charity, which ended on the 19th of December. For a $5 donation, gamers had the chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree at popular online entertainment store Play-Asia, as well as many runner-up prizes donated by members of the Cheap Ass Gamer community such as cash, games and accessories.
The response was overwhelming [drumrolls starting] and thanks to kind hearted gamers across the globe [drumrulls raising], the raffle was a smashing success with
[and off with a smash!]
We are overwhelmed by the result and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated in the raffle and that the gaming community is indeed very caring even though the media tries to say otherwise. Many sick kids will benefit from your kind donations. The money will all be forwarded directly to Child's Play to help sick children in need, CheapyD and Play-Asia will cover for any PayPal fees so the gross amount you sent will directly go to Child's Play.
