Hey guys, show the sick kids some TeamEVGA love!

While we're chewing up the WUs doing the heavy mathematical work to help the eventual solving of the Cancer problem, there are thousands of kids sick in hospitals waiting for or recovering from some heavy duty treatments.
Penny Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/
) set up the Child's Play charity (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/
) as a way to prove to the world at large that gamers had the ability and willingness to change the world for the better. This weekend, one of my personal favorite fundraisers for the CP charity, Mario Marathon (http://www.mariomarathon.com
), is engaged in their 5th year in raising money for the charity.
While not directly related to Folding, it IS supporting the recovery of those we hope to help with our folding, and I thought it would be nice if we could drop a few donations in the till with the TeamEVGA name. Maybe next year arrange a more formal pool for our donations?
Something to think about, at least.
