Very few charities have 100% passthru rates for donations. Presumably CCP is going to pass 100% of the value of the plex to a charity, but confirmation and more details are always appreciated.


American charities, especially the Red Cross, give you the option of specifying what percentage of your donation you want to go to actual relief, and what goes to operative costs.

Thank you CCP for this opportunity to help.

For those of you that advocate doing absolutely nothing, as a firm believer of karma, may you never need saving.

I'm perfectly sure you will never have a time of need in your life.

To CCP: I hope you include in the news how much you collect once this drive is over with. It'd definitely be interesting to see.

I will ask someone higher up to confirm your queries come Monday, but CCP are not going to profit from this. The CCP community will profit from their generous donations and the fact that they are helping people in desperate need.

Was there any update on this?

As the others, I'm just wondering what exactly "100% of the proceeds" refers to. Razz

I am donating 10 plexes as of right now.

Come on all, all those people in the trade bazaars, in the character bazaars, in modules and munitions and in the ship channels. So many of us are swimming in isk.
Who has ever parked outside jita 4-4 and seen dozens of freighters in the space of a minute enter and leave the station. Billions of isk trade are carried out every day around eve.

Isk that is ultimately just an IN GAME item, for a game about internet spaceships. Now we can finally use that isk for something amazing. Helping the people of Haiti.
For all those rich folks, who know how easy it is to make a billion. Please spare $50, just a billion isk of game money to help real people =). There are eve players right now who dont even have enough money in game to donate a whole plex, but they're still doing half their ingame wealth to the Red Cross. I find that humbling.

So who wants to beats 10 plex? its a low figure, come now, can i get a 11?

Hey Chribba, I dont have a ton of isk in my wallet, but if I contracted you some Veldspar, could it go towards a plex for Haiti?

I suppose, I could refine it and sell it, but giving eves biggest Veldspar junkie, Veldspar would be cooler. :P

Further to the 10 donated via chribba, i'm donating a further 10 via the Chribbmaster making a final total of 20
I think we'll have a pretty special total by the end for a small community such as ours =)

I'm a _very_ casual Eve player, but after 4 years flying around I processed the old junk lying I had lying around in a half dozen dusty station containers into space goo, sold a bunch of rarely used faction mods and My CNR (sniff...bye old girl, you've been good to me), cashed out a bunch of LP, and emptied out my bank account.

You have a toy, It's something you like to play with. You play with it almost everyday for hours, it's quite entertaining. You have other toys, but this toy is the best.

A man sit's on the street, now homeless from a great disaster, his wife dead in a ruined house. Trying to take care of his crying child. if you take a part out of this toy that you can reforge in a couple of days or weeks. You can feed him and provide water for him and his child for several days at-least, Perhaps even abit of medical care. but the toy will be less fun without this part until you reforge it.

What do you do?

Im sure we have all answered this question in one form or another, In one of those online how evil or good are you surveys you do for kicks. Maybe a personality or let us choose your class for you quiz in a video-game. Im sure most of us have answered yes, Giving ourselves a small sense of satisfaction that were are "the good guys". Unless of course you answered no for craps a giggles. we all do that out of whimsy some times.

Now it's being asked in real life, Once again. What do you do?

I am afraid you forgot the continuation of the story - you know, the part which people simply love to ignore, cause they think that they have played their role already?

The man gets his toy and it does indeed help him and his child survive the next few weeks as he is able to get some food and medication for it. But then the resources that the toy gave runs out and the man and his child are once more without any aid and help. By this time, there are no more kind strangers that can hand out any more toys because the misery that struck the man and child are already forgotten. The child dies. Eventually so does the man.

Meanwhile you move on with your life, probably have forgotten about the toy that you gave to that man, but even if that memory was to return it would only feel you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, because you know you did your part and if you come across another suffering soul elsewhere, you will give a part that toy to them as well.

Welcome to reality and the true nature of man's "kindness".

Edmund Burke once said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

World War 2 should not have been our problem then if it were true.
The US should have left the UK to rot and have europe ****d by either mad ****s or mad russians. I'm sure they would have left us alone.

Again, may you never need saving.

or donate any sum with the "reason" PLEX to me and I'll buy PLEX'es from the market to donate to CCP for the aid! (for those of you who cannot affors a full PLEX but still want to help).

For those donating ISK, Please make sure you start your "reason" with "PLEX", I will of course do my best to spot out those donations as well, but it needs to start with "PLEX" in order to register automaticly!

Progress
PLEX donated: 35
ISK donated: 2,660,766,560.20

Welcome to reality and the true nature of man's "kindness".

actually the reality of this is quite different. Charities use appeals like this to raise donations absolutely. they also have a regular stream of donations, they utilise those to maintain on going projects throughout the world.
Besides, different charities have different expertises. Working in a post disaster environment requires a very specific set of skills, these are very difficult skills to acquire and are indeed best left mainly to large charities such as the ICRC or specialist charities like shelter box. on the other hand there are also many many charities which help people regardless of when the 'disaster' happened. these charities basically help the impoverished wherever they may be. perhaps they are people with mental disabilities in the UK, perhaps they are orphans in kenya. there are pretty much charities for every single thing out there which deserves help. perhaps some charities deserve greater attention then they get.
but personally, i'd devote time and attention to helping those charities, then to complain that no one else is helping.

but all of this is moot. the fact is, people who are donating to help haitians right now, are giving hope to haitians,giving them access to clean water, shelter and food. that's pretty powerful stuff, all for isk. that's amazing.
