Here's a cool way to donate some money to charity and have a chance at probably the best prize a WoW
player could want. Katherine Allen (our own Michael Sacco, formerly known as "Belfaire," says she's a friend) is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
, and she's offering a contest with each donation: by giving at least $25 and putting an Alliance or Horde comment on the donation page, she'll enter everyone who does so in a drawing to win one of three one-year timecards for the game. And because donations have already topped $5500 (as of this writing, they're at $7,420), she's picking one more name out of the hat, to win a lifetime subscription. That's right -- donate, win, and you'll never have to pay for WoW
Very nice -- not only is that an amazing prize, but it's awesome that because of the generosity of WoW
fans, they've already met their fundraising goal for the society
, and then some. Donations are being accepted until January 5th, so there's still time to get your name in the pot if you'd like. Even if you don't pick up a prize, you'll be helping to try and save the lives of 145 people a day
, and while trouncing the Lich King is definitely a thrill, helping people in real life is even better.
