The Fly Gabe Newell Fund Has Been Successful!

We raised over $3000 in not-even-three-days. Gabe and Erik flew down on their own dime and hung out with me. All funds raised were donated to the Child's Play charity. See below for my summary of the event.

Thanks, everyone!

$3000 breached

With Jim's $3 donation, we wipe the smirk off the face of the number 3000, and then we step on its toe. Thanks, Jim!

$3,002.43 USD


  1. In the name of all that's holy, guilt trip them into donating the cost of those plane tickets to charity- assuming that actually make it to Oz. Those two are wealthy enough to go anywhere on their own dime; isn't the thought of seeking contributions to fly already-rich men halfway around the world to look at a game just a _little bit_ repulsive?.

  2. It would be VERY awesome if you somehow swung things so that Gabe and Erik could be in the country at the right time so they could make a special appearance at a certain gaming exhibition in melbourne in november :P Namely the Egames Expo.

  3. Your L4D campaign better be pretty fantastic.
