EVE Online's official fan club - The Camarilla - has raised $4,000 for the Get-Well Gamers Foundation, which "brings electronic entertainment to children in healthcare facilities".
White Wolf, the folks publishing the game, explained in a statement sent to the Foundation the donation was the result of the club's very successful efforts throughout this year and last; silent suctions and raffles were held at regional and national conventions which were promoted in various ways and places online.
"The generosity of The Camarilla continues to amaze us. It's entirely to their credit that this donation was made possible,” said Val Massey, Senior Director of Public Relations and Communication, CCP. “Get-Well Gamers is such a worthy cause and we are in awe of their tireless efforts to bring some much-needed fun to young people who need it most. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to act as a conduit to connect these two incredible groups."
“Given the recent economic climate, especially in Iceland where CCP calls home, this is a particularly poignant donation,” said Ryan Sharpe, President, Get-Well Gamers Foundation. “We cannot begin to thank CCP, White Wolf and The Caramilla for their generous support of Get-Well Gamers and other worthy causes. They truly show how online communities can be used as a force for good.”
