ZOMG new demoman unlock!!11

Valve have thrown their mighty girth behind the charity melt-your-wrench event we posted about last week, writing about it on their official blog and announcing the total raised so far.

Valve report that the charity has already raised $5,000 in donations (although the official site is saying just over $3,000), and they're throwing down an additional incentive to give generously: you'll get access to an exclusive steam group that'll identify you as a donor when you pledge money. At this rate, players whipping out a Golden Wrench in a month or two are just going to look like greedy fools.

Donations are going to Child's Play, and there's more information on the golden charity at their website here. Or, provided I can successfully wrestle the html again, you can donate below:
