Good work, you hat-craving, conditionally-generous gentlemen and women. Valve's charity drive that began last Thursday has already produced more than $300,000 in aid to Japan by way of the American Red Cross. The items--three hats and a few of noise-maker consumables--are available until April 6.

Valve has just deployed a two-week sale on three unique Team Fortress 2 hats, the proceeds of which will go entirely to the American Red Cross fund. Respectfully, we feel obligated to give this promotion a plug: we know your hunger for conspicuous hat consumption, PC gamers, and any transaction that helps relieve the immense toll of this disaster benefits us all.
