Gamers are a caring and giving bunch. Here are some ways that you can help others:

Board game publisher Tasty Minstrel Games is sponsoring a donation drive for Toys for Tots. For every 1,000 people that like Tasty Minstrel Games’ Facebook page by October 10th, the company will donate $500 worth of new games (up to $5,000).

Savage Mojo is organizing a drive for hurricane Irene flood relief in upstate New York. Donations of $25 at DriveThruRPG earn a premium package of products valued at over $200.

The Screaming Heretic 40K podcast is collecting money for the family of a listener recently passed away from a heart-attack.
