As we all know, a terrible earthquake struck Haiti early this week, and there’s been an outpouring of support for the beleaguered country. Gamers have done their part too, with PopCap games donating 100% of all sales to aid in Haiti on Saturday 1/16. Other companies are also helping: Bungie is selling a limited t-shirt, all profits going to Haitian relief. Other developers and publishers, large and small, are trying to help as well. Kotaku is tracking these opportunities, though I recommend avoiding the comments section as the Kotaku readership isn’t as good-hearted as its editorial staff.
If you are able to give, through a game-based charity or otherwise, please be sure to research your charity and make sure that it is well-regarded, and that the majority of your contribution is going to help the Haitian people. Unfortunately some profiteers always crop up during disasters like this.
