    Maybe, although it's already November, so it's not that far off.

    I'd love to get the kitten (and the other Blizzard Store pets for that matter) but unfortunately as someone living in the US with an EU WoW account i can't (the EU Blizzard store doesn't take the type of credit card i have). >.> Its nice that 100% of the profits will go to charity though.
  1. UnstoppableErasor's Avatar
    I think blizzard created sandy. Or secretly new of sandy about to come.

    Joking aside, glad they do something on a regular basis to raise funds for charity

    Aren't there other options? I don't know what EU accepts, but don't they have things like Paypal and such?

    Hopefully the donation money wil be used to help the poor people in the caribbean countries rather than the rich people in the US.

    Where can I check that before I make my donation?
  1. lanerios's Avatar
    And let me guess, itll help the people in the us. No thanks. You people have enough money to help yourselves. Ratner help haiti and the like who actually have trouble recovering from this.
    But with the ego of the us, its now "boohoo us got hit so hard please ignore everyone else"
  1. Aquarela's Avatar
    Oh god,
    if you don't want to buy it don't buy it. If you want to donate to haiti or cuba or other caribbean countries go to the red cross page for those countries and do so, but stop trolling.
  1. lanerios's Avatar
    American? Assumed as much. I will probably buy the pet anway, but after the drive is over. Just tired of america going like they are the only damn victims. Even though the damage was minimal compared to others.
  1. NineK's Avatar
    I rather donate to my local redcross that actually do help those in greatest need, the Caribian and not only those affected in the richest country in the world USA.
    Why on earth are you asking us to to only help that country who that has the biggest potential to recover fastest and that was mild damages?

    Pathetic Blizzard, a slap in the face on those poor people who already had it rough to start with before hurricane Sandy, like on Haiti
