Geek Catalog Update 11/9/2014

It’s your weekly update of Citizen Geek Resources!

First of all the full lists now have in-page links since they’ve gotten huge – you can find them sorted by Geeky Interest or Specific Focus.

With Blizzcon ending, I figured this week I’d focus just on video game charities and causes.  Here’s a chance to get your Citizen Gamer on!
