It will also be donating all proceeds from the faulty auctions — including transaction fees and money it’s intercepted from culpable players’ sales — to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, which has raised more than $4.7 billion for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada in the past 30 years.

And with that.

Blizzard wins the internet. applaud.gif

Awesome to hear. That is the only charity I donate to. All children deserve to grow up and have good medical care.

I think it's a lot more than nothing. My little brother is cooped up in one of those places now and believe me when I say every little cent matters.

I know every penny matters, just pointing out that Blizzard is swimming in pools of cash.

They do and have donated more money to other charities before, this was just a specific donation tied to a specific problem. Blizzard is actually pretty good about its charites and have done some pretty great things over the years.
