Azeroth Unites for Child’s Play
Azeroth United is a community of Internet Media Sites and Sources built and maintained by World of Warcraft Fans and Players around the world. United, their voices are being joined to support common interests and reach goals that would be unattainable alone. Their inaugural event, the First Annual – Hearts, Hands, and Voices Drive for Child’s Play Charity, will kick off November 1st.
What is Child’s Play?
Since 2003, over 100,000 gamers worldwide have banded together through Child’s Play, a community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Over 3.5 million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since our inception.
This year, we have continued expanding across the country and the globe. With around 60 partner hospitals and more arriving every month, you can be sure to find one from the map above that needs your help! You can choose to purchase requested items from their online retailer wish lists, or make a cash donation that helps out Child’s Play hospitals everywhere. Any items purchased through Amazon will be shipped directly to your hospital of choice, so please be sure to select their shipping address rather than your own.
When gamers give back, it makes a difference!
What is Azeroth United’s Goal?
AU is dedicated to bring attention to Child’s Play, and the companies who are supporting this event, throughout the World of Warcraft Internet Media community, and to and create a joint contribution of at least $5,000 to this worthwhile cause. In doing so, contributors will be entered to win various prizes based upon two tiers of contributions.
As a “Thank You” each contributor making a $10 or $20 donation to Child’s Play will be entered into drawings for exclusive gift baskets, filled with items being provided by our generous sponsors.
