Bottom line, the US was by far hit the hardest. I'm not saying other countries don't need help, I'm really not. But to insinuate that the US doesn't deserve a slice of that pie is just plain wrong.
I agree with you sociald, the problem is. Americans are making it out that they are the only ones deserving aid, and that they are the worst off ever. That is what I have a problem with. That and the fact that Blizzard blindly follows that.
As others said .
I rather help my local red cross then send money to the americans .
Why help a people who keep starting wars all over the planet every 2 years or something ?
Let them help themselves.
no one is forcing you to donate to the US disaster relief -- you're more than welcome to give your $10 to any other relief program instead. the pet is just a bonus to donating via blizzard's store, you can always wait until later to buy it.
I hope the "fiscal cliff" comes into effect, bam 500 billion to spend on that "worthy" cause.
I'll just send my money where they need it.
And where is the fix to correct the scale back for DK class at the character screen?
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 HaitiHe said "like Sandy". It was an EXAMPLE. When the money starts to flow from that pet it'll be too late to help the sandy vics anyway.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
But nowhere does it state that the money is reserved for USA only. Seems to me like they give it to the RC to do with as they deem necessary.
God... America is rich country with lots of really poor people...
Do you really think poor people in America deserve less help than poor people in anoher country?
Red Cross is a fantastic organisation, no matter where on the world they are needed...
Japan was hit in Fukushima, this is a rich country as well... they deserved help as well...
So much hate everywhere...
Once again, I'm not saying Haiti doesn't need help, I am saying that relief structures and money are already in place for it.
I do not approve of the Shaman changes from a Resto PoV
Sending aid to the country with the highest military spending on the planet? hmm, think I'll stick with Haiti.
I don't understand...
Blizz is trying to do something nice for charity and you guys are complaining? This is something they didn't have to do, you know.
I love how blizzard does something nice and people jump on them. I bet if blizzard just offered the pet without the "100% GOING TO RED CROSS* tag you would complain that they are being greedy. Make up your minds people. Love the America bashing in this thread too! "A country that starts a war every 2 years" lmao, gimme a break.
May get one knowing that it goes to charity, that and it looks cool, will go well with Lil KT in pet battles.
