Organizers of the game industry charity Child's Play recently announced that more than $5 million was raised in 2012, marking its biggest year yet. Last year's then-record-breaking tally came in at $3.5 million.
The total 2012 Child's Play haul was $5,085,761.
A Child's Play representative thanked event organizers, volunteers, and participants for their work to achieve the mark. In addition, the group called out the Humble Bundle team and made specific mention of various game marathons that benefited Child's Play, including the Mario Marathon, Zeldathon, Assassins4Kids, and more.
"We are overwhelmed, honored, grateful, and incredibly proud to be a part of such an amazing community of generous gamers," reads a line from the statement. "Thank you for a record-breaking 2012!"
Founded in 2003 by Penny Arcade's Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, Child's Play works to improve the lives of sick children through offering toys and games at a network of over 70 hospitals worldwide. For more on Child's Play, see the organization's official website.
