Cheap Ass Gamer

In terms of have and have nots, video gamers are generally a lucky but annoying bunch. You go home to your expensive video games console (or consoles) which is complemented by a decent (or extravagant) sized television set and yet you complain about the price of games, the slowness of your internet connection, how you can ill afford another flat screen tv and how it would suck if you cannot get the latest console from either of the big three (Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo).

What have you actually contributed to other people? Sharing your console with your friends is one thing, but what have you done for the truly unfortunate people, those who are too poor or sick to experience the fun and joy that you normally associate with playing games?

That question would have probably solicited a blank look from you and it brings us to this: Cheap Ass Gamer and (my favourite online store for video games) have teamed up to create a fundraiser for Child's Play Charity. This fund raiser takes form of a raffle and each donation costs USD 5 and not only are you supporting a sick child in this endeavor but you also stand to win a $1000 shopping spree at Play-Asia!

For more info about this raffle, head over to this link at Play-Asia. Help someone else for a change.
