They sold virtual "Child's Play" items in Everquest and Everquest 2; each time one was sold SOE donated $10 to the cause. Child’s Play is dedicated to providing children with toys and age-appropriate games, toys, and movies; making their visit a little bit more tolerable.

Gabe and Tycho of Penny Arcade are the minds behind the creation of Child's Play and are doing a fantastic job!
