Gaming Santa is back, and he’s collecting more games for low-income families

The holiday season is back in full swing, and that means it’s time for a whole lot of giving. More specifically, the giving away of loads of PC games to low-income families so disadvantaged kids can have a digital stocking stuffed with goodies. Yes, the Gaming Santa, aka Failnaut, aka Christos Reid, is back with another annual Christmas game donation drive.

Check out the best free games on PC.

It’s pretty simple. If you want to donate, hit the donation website, upload a spreadsheet with keys and game names, and enjoy the warm fuzzies of having spread a little joy around Christmas time. Many of us have a load of game keys from duplicate Humble Bundles and the like, so this is a perfect opportunity to do a little giving.

For families who’ll be considered for the donations, the same site offers a form with questions about ages, computer specs, and genre preferences.

Donations will be accepted through December 13. Those game keys will be distributed December 14-20, with the drive closing on December 21.

Last year, Reid told us that “People in the gaming community have always supported me and my family when we needed it – it’s important to pay that forward.” He shared that during the first drive, “a young girl whose parents chose between food and gifts woke up to around thirty PC games. It makes my Christmas, and theirs.”

So pay it forward, and make the holidays a little brighter for game-loving families.
