Why Donate to GeoHot When You Could Support a Gaming Charity?

The litigation between Sony and George Hotz is a headline that has become ubiquitous throughout the gaming industry. I won't attempt to claim who is right and who is wrong regarding the legal matters of the case, but I do want to take a moment to offer some alternatives to GeoHot's recent donation request.

Listed below are several charities and organizations that could greatly benefit from our collective support.

Gaming charities need more publicity in general. It's depressing that news like GeoHot or the woman who claimed games cause rape can create discussions and controversy that last for weeks, but nobody in the media really pays attention to the good things that come out of the gaming community (e.g. the gaming charities).

this happens with every subject

media distorts any news they can to garner more views...more views equals more profits

doesnt that remind you of something? something about gaming, websites, cant quite put my finger on it

I know I might get disagrees with this, but the disenfranchised also need an education. I'll only donate to a gaming charity if, and only if, they mostly support educational material.

Otherwise, I'll just use the money on myself to rot my own brain.

Because people would rather "stick it to the man" then actually do something good with their money/lives.

Childsplay is awesome. I found out about it last year. Things like this make me smile.

Jack, may the wings of liberty never lose a feather...

Why can't I do both? Split the money between both causes? Why are they mutually exclusive?
Carmaine must live!
Geohot must win! See? I can do both

UnwanteDreamz2829d ago

Yep and one is a noble cause.

Why donate to Geodick when you can castrate yourself?
