Cinder Kitten Raises More Than $2.3 Million

wow cinder kitten


Some people are giving Blizzard crap, but they don’t understand math.  100% of the proceeds went to support people affected by Superstorm Sandy.  Kudo’s should be given where kudo’s are deserved.  Here’s a repost from Blizz’s site:

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of World of Warcraft players around the world who purchased the Cinder Kitten pet, we’ve raised a total of more than $2.3 million USD to support the American Red Cross’s ongoing Superstorm Sandy relief efforts. In December, we announced that for every Cinder Kitten purchased by December 31, 2012, 100% of the adoption fee would be going to assist victims of this disaster — and the community embraced this fiery feline in droves, helping out a great cause in the process. Thanks again to everyone who helped make a difference.

With so much crap happening in the world, it’s nice to see a large company doing something about it.  And hey, what’s a little good press, eh?

PS: Thank you for the years I spent in WoW Blizzard, it was good stuff!
