(I’m repeating this text as a normal blog post directly under this post, so it remains on the front page for April.)

I am not much of a gamer. I went to PAX. This may seem odd to you. Even as a non-gamer, I felt the same “welcome home” sentiment Wil Wheaton spoke of in the keynote speech. The gaming community is a fantastic group of people with, contrary to public opinion, hearts and souls and +5 Charities of Awesomeness. What really moved me about PAX was how much of a difference this community — and, by extention, geeks in general — can make. How much of a difference a couple unassuming guys can make in the gaming culture. How much of a difference a print comic can make towards the acceptance of geek culture by covertly injecting it into the mainstream. How much of a difference a webcomic can make in the lives of sick kids around the world.

Don’t get me wrong. I am by no means comparing myself to the gods that are Gabe and Tycho and anybody else of that stature. I know Enjuhneer is still a zygote in comparison to the staples of the genre. The economy has certainly not helped any of the recent college graduates, either. But that doesn’t mean my hands are tied.

From now til the end of April, if you donate any amount to Child’s Play and email me some proof of that, I will email you back a copy of my Cast Bio Booklet. It’s a small gesture, sure, but I want to do what I can to help this organization. Alternatively, if you’ve already got a copy of the Bio Booklet, let me know in your email and we can figure out something else for you. First ten will also receive a copy of something I haven’t released before — a cast wallpaper featuring the image on the Cast Tshirt!

Thank you in advance to anyone who helps out. Let’s see what this modest army can do!

    Hey, I picked up your card at PAX, and your comic is awesome.

    On a slightly more related note, I recommend a service called “ChipIn” if you would like to track donations to Child’s Play. Desert Bus for Hope uses it, and Kristen Lindsay recommends it for internet Child’s Play fund raisers.

    I love Zygote. It’s meat tastes delicious
