gPotato Europe Raises €20,000 for Japan Relief

Back in March, Gala Networks Europe released special charity items in four of its games to support relief efforts in Japan following the recent tsunami and earthquake. Today they announced that players of Rappelz, Flyff, Castle of Heroes and Terra Militaris raised a combined total of €22,151 by purchasing these items.

The money was donated to the Irish Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal on May 31 and will be relayed to its Japanese counterpart to help assist those impacted by one of Japan’s worst natural disasters. The European fundraiser was part of a global GALA Group initiative that raised close to €50,000 worldwide. Launches Charity Donations for Japan

Gala Networks Europe announced today that it will be launching special charity items for four of its games to support relief efforts in Japan. The full cash value of these cash shop items will be donated to the Irish Red Cross, which will transfer the amount to Japan.

Rappelz and Flyff players can purchase the charitable items starting today, March 25. Tera Militaris and Castle of Heroes players will be able to participate starting next week. It's definitely a good cause, so keep an eye on the cash shops for these games and consider making a donation. Portal Passes 6,000,000 Users
