Our good friends over at Azeroth United
have announced their charity drive for the year
, and while it's still getting underway, you can now head over and start giving donations
, of either money or items to be offered as prizes for sponsorships. The drive doesn't officially start until November 1st, but especially if you have a site that has WoW
-related items or services to offer, AU could use your help putting together gifts for people who donate. Additionally, they've put together mp3 promos of various AU members, so if you have a podcast in the community or any other audio outlet, you can run promotions of your own to help out the cause.
Said cause is an excellent one, of course: they're aiming to get at least $5,000 to donate to Child's Play
, the charity started by the Penny Arcade
folks that helps get video games together for children in hospital. The drive, we're told, will run through December 13th, so they've got a long way to go, but right now they're working hard at getting sponsor items together and getting the community revved up for the event. Stay tuned for more -- this seems like an excellent opportunity for the Warcraft
community to do good and help out the world outside of Azeroth.
