1v6a492f0e1a207e55835cdfc7eb4980cd81v6a492f0e1a207e55835cdfc7eb4980cd8On Thursday, Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins (Gabe & Tycho), authors of Penny Arcade, were recognized by the Washington state legislature for their work on Child’s Play, an organization the two developed to deliver toys and games to children’s hospitals worldwide.

Since 2003, Child’s Play has helped to raise more than $3.5 million in donations and partner with more than 60 children’s hospitals worldwide to raise the spirits of sick and injured kids.

Awesome job and a hearty congratulations to the Penny Arcade guys on this one (and everyone who makes Child’s Play possible). Keep up the good work!
