ArenaNet Honors Longtime Player with a Generous Donation & Gifts After Home Fire

ArenaNet Honors Longtime Player with a Generous Donation & Gifts After Home Fire -

A longtime Guild Wars player named Flora "Siadina" Hunsucker lost her home recently to a tragic fire. She lost everything, including two beloved dogs, though her cats survived. The local fire department allowed Siadina to return to her home to pick through the ashes for anything salvageable. In the wreckage, she found a nearly undamaged copy of Guild Wars: Nightfall. She took a picture and tagged ArenaNet on Twitter. Then the magic began.

The ANet social media manager reached out to her asking if the company could send her a tshirt and requested her address. Within days, the GoFundMe account Siadina's family set up to help her raise funds to find a new place to live received a $3,500 donation from ArenaNet. In addition, she received a package filled with signed copies of all of the Guild Wars games, including Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns.

Siadina is a fan, that's for sure, with over 4,000 hours in Guild Wars and another 2,500 in Guild Wars 2. This had to be a special treat.

As of this writing, Siadina's GoFundMe has raised $5,790, somewhat above her original goal of $5,000. You can check it out here.

Good on ya, A-Net. Thanks for making this world a bit brighter.
