This months Charity was going to be UniCef, they help children all over the world and also one of main charities which are helping with the Haiti Crisis. But after I setup the fund-raising page, I got this *DENIED* email:
I wanted to make contact to inform you that we have unfortunately needed to remove your myfundraising page. Although we are very grateful for your support here at UNICEF, after careful consideration we have decided not to accept the funds raised through your ‘reign of blood’ game. We feel it would be inappropriate to accept funds raised through a vampire computer game. We are also guided by the public view and perceptions of companies in the UK. Whilst we understand that that these might not always be totally accurate, we must take these views into account in order to avoid any negative publicity.
I didn't realise charities could afford to push away donations. I guess a vampire game isn't good enough for them. Their loss!
UPDATE: They sent me another email.
So this months charity will be...
Everybody knows the Help For Heroes charity. We're going to do our bit to help those who are injured fighting in the current wars.
Thank you for all your continuous support & allowing us to be one the few online games that help out good causes (or at least try in some cases).
Real time ClockIf you've not already noticed (or read the last blog yet) we have a new ticking clock! Pretty cool huh? But remember, if it doesn't work properly in your browser/mobile device, you can turn it off the account options page.
May competition winnerHere is the winner for the may competition. Why? Simply because it speaks truth. Congratulations - Xenia Le Doux (319314) [ View Image ]
June CompetitionThis month's competition is being held in Greenwood. Special grams of dirt are hiding around inside caves, the top 3 players with the most amount of dirt found by the 30th June, will win 100 plasma, 30 plasma, and 10 plasma. Leaderboards will be put up later in the month.
Battling activity is at a all time high. Although that's a good thing, but with the lack of ~20,000 blood filled accounts being killed an hour, there isn't enough to go around anymore. (Even with the 200-300 new vampires each day). We are working on more ways to get blood to you all. Yummy blood. Stay tuned.
Enjoy the weekend to come,
