EVE Online Calls for PLEX Donations to Aid Haiti Earthquake Victims

Updated Wed, Sep 15, 2010 by Martuk

CCP is joining the call to help aid in Haiti disaster relief by calling on the players of EVE Online to donate to help aid in relief efforts. From now through February 15th, 2010, EVE Online players can make a donation of PLEX that will be converted into a real-world cash donation to help aid the Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.

Dear EVE Players,

Along with the rest of the world, we at CCP have been following the devastating impact  of the earthquake of January 12 on the people of Haiti.  The situation is as dire as ever for Haiti's brave population, even with the rush of goodwill and aid from many countries, international organizations and countless individuals-including many of you.  In 2004 we assisted a collection amongst EVE players to help with the Southeast Asia Tsunami relief efforts and we have figured out a way to use our PLEX system to facilitate such a collection again.

Beginning January 29th, 2010 and ending February 15th, 2010, CCP will accept PLEX donations from players and convert them to a cash donation for the Red Cross efforts in Haiti. 100% of the proceeds will be given to this important charity as a representative gift from EVE's player community.

· To participate, contract your PLEX to the "CCP PLEX for Haiti" character, and please make sure the character is in the "C C P" corporation and that the name is spelled correctly to avoid scams.

· Contracts will be accepted within 24 hours of submission, though usually sooner than that.

CCP regards any scamming attempts surrounding this effort to be morally reprehensible and they will be met with swiftest action.

This is about one community of people helping another in need.

I urge you to  use your hard earned ISK (or any of the other various ways which you can acquire a PLEX) to do something greater than it could ever do in New Eden.

Back in the day all that was required to reach the whole community was a dev blog. Now more is needed to reach the ears of the 330,000 players. Please help pass the word to your fellow EVE Players. And if you have any questions regarding this program, please be sure to check out our FAQ.

Sincerely,

Hilmar Veigar Pétursson
