GamerchiX have been rocking the Penny Arcade Expo since we were a fledgling group with a couple hundred members. We've seen PAX grow from a smallish, smelly convention in Bellevue to a massive rockin weekend in Seattle. This year as part of our new GivingchiX initiative we decided to channel our energy to fight poverty in King County.
Purchase "GamerchiX Approved" buttons at PAX. Every cent of the purchase price will be donated to Solid Ground, a charitable organization committed to ending poverty in King County. Then pin those buttons on awesome stuff. Be careful pinning people. If you draw blood you poked too hard! Trade GamerchiX Approved buttons with other PAX-goers, barter them for swag, or just pin them on stuff that rocks. Take pics and share with the community!
Info on how to share them:
Twitpic it and use the #gamerchixPAX09 hashtag
