World Of Warcraft To Sell Virtual Kittens To Raise Money For Sandy Relief

OK. I may not love playing World of Warcraft, but I am happy to give credit where credit is due: this is both cute and awesome.

World of Warcraft is adding a new pet to their pet store. First, it’s a kitten, which is just great on general principles. Second, it’s on fire, which is impressive if impractical. But third, and most importantly, the purchase price of the fiery feline goes entirely to help recovery efforts from Sandy and other natural disasters.

Hurricane Sandy, which kept our site offline for a week, left a trail of devastation in both the Caribbean and the American northeast. The cinder kitten costs $US10, all of which will go to the American Red Cross.

Cute and charitable? That’s a winning combination.
