Of course, Trion has admitted that they’re pretty big fans of Blizzard and WoW themselves and at this point we all know it’s in good fun. And this time, it’s also for a good cause. Just a while ago, Trion put up a bit of news announcing “Save a panda with STORM LEGION”.
For those of you who are wondering, this deal is available world-wide — no “US only” clauses. However, there are some funky restrictions regarding a few US states as outlined in their fine print:
Trion Worlds, Inc. will donate US$1.00 to Pandas International for each copy of Storm Legion that is pre-ordered through StormLegion.com, worldwide (excluding Alabama, Massachusetts, and South Carolina, even though we really wish they’d let us), between 12:00am PDT September 26, 2012 through 11:59pm PDT October 3, 2012, up to a maximum amount of US$10,000.00. Know why we have to do that? Maine. Weird, right? We don’t know what they have against Pandas, or why $10,000 is a magical number, either. This contribution is not tax deductible, but it would be pretty awesome if it were. Pandas International is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization located at P.O. Box 620335, Littleton, Colorado 80162, whose mission is to ensure the preservation and propagation of the endangered Giant Panda.
So, I suppose if you’re in the states listed above and you want your dollar to go to the pandas, you have two options.
- Ask a friend from another state to order for you.
- Just send a dollar — or your amount of choice — straight to Pandas International.
The latter might be easier.
I have to say. I’m a fan of Trion’s methods. Anything that give me a giggle while supporting a worthy cause is always awesome.
