The Penny Arcade fellows are auctioning off an original piece of PA artwork (the cover design to this year’s PAX booklet, for those that care to know) and are intending on donating 100% of the proceeds to the American Red Cross in order to help with Hurricane Katrina relief. There is a little less than 5 days left in the auction as of the time of this writing and, believe it or not, the highest bid stands at $7,600. Holy cow!
PA has some of the most dedicated fans I’ve ever encountered, particularly for a website, but that’s just astounding. It’s good to see that Gabe and Tycho are doing what they can to help with hurricane relief and it’s incredible to see that someone is willing to put that much money on the line for a worthy cause. Bravo to all involved.
