PLEX for Haiti Effort Raises Over $40k

PLEX for Haiti Effort Raises Over $40k - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

We recently covered the PLEX for Haiti campaign, in which CCP would convert PLEX contracted out to a designated PLEX for Haiti character to full cash donations to the American Red Cross towards Haiti relief.

The effort allowed for players rich in EVE Online but not necessarily in real life the ability to assist the people of Haiti in their time of need. And as it turns out, the PLEX for Haiti campaign has been quite the success, generating over $40,000 so far!

The fundraiser was set to end on February 15th, but since donations are still coming in CCP has gone ahead and extended the fundraiser in order to facilitate them.
