Who Says Gamers Don't Give

In the past week, I've seen two wonderful causes that have been funded by WoW activities. I think both of them are very worthwhile and I'll be donating my time/money, and I hope you all do too.

First is Azeroth United's "Hearts, Hands and Voices," a donation to the Child's Play organization that gets gaming equipment into children's hospitals. As small as that may seem, toys and games for children going through therapy in hospitals helps keep their moral up so they can keep on fighting. If you have a chance, and you're a WoW person, think about donating to this wonderful cause.

The second cause is a more personal cause brought to us by Big Bear Butt and The World of Warcraft "Raid for the Cure." Julie, one of the members of the Sidhe Devils on Kael'thas US server was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. To show their support, The Sidhe Devils are having people from all around, both Alliance and Horde, show up and march to the barrens wearing pink shirts. While it's great for Julie to see all the people rooting for her, they're also raffling off some prizes for people who donate to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation via this site. Just send the receipt from your donation to the email address at BBB's post, and you're entered!

I'm just super pumped to see the gamer community giving back to the community in such a wonderful way.
