    Help Haiti Heal Features Signed Set of Harry Potter Books

    This isn’t really video game-related, per se, but it’s important! The HP Alliance has put together a fundraiser for Haiti relief with a giant list of awesome prizes. How it works: Each prize has a certain donation level. After donating that much, you’re automatically entered in a drawing to win that prize. You do have to choose which raffle you want to be entered in. Buy multiple donations and you get multiple entries to win the item at that donation level. Easy as pie! EDIT: So far, they’ve raised $31,000. Right now, notable items include: A complete set of signed Harry Potter books, including a note from JK Rowling (Single entry costs $100, but signed copies of her books are virtually impossible to get) Copy of Harlequin Valentine, signed by Neil Gaiman ($40) Two Terry Pratchett novels, signed by Terry Pratchett ($40) Harry Potter chess set ($30) Sirius Black sketch

    Review – Lola: A Ghost Story

    I love Oni Press because as a publisher, they take the most chances on stories that evoke an emotion. In Lola: A Ghost Story, the story follows a little boy, Jesse, who travels with his family to the Philippines to attend his grandma’s funeral.

    EverQuest Gamers Buy Items For Haiti

    Last week, Sony Online Entertainment, home of blockbuster MMORPG franchise EverQuest, set a goal of raising $25,000 for Haiti relief effors. How long did it take? Only three days. Players snatched up special Haiti Relief items over the MLK Day holiday weekend to quickly raise the cash, which was donated to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief and Development fund. This is SOE’s second charity project of the year. The first involved a month-long drive that resulted in raising over $26,000 for Child’s Play, which provides children with age-appropriate toys at over 70 hospitals worldwide. The Child’s Play drive took a whole month to raise what the Haiti drive got in three days. Gamers are clearly picking up on the gravity of the situation and responding appropriately (either that or they really wanted the exclusive items, but I sincerely hope it’s the former).
