Submission + - EVE Online channels in-game donations to Haiti ( 1

PurpleCarrot writes: Players in the MMORPG EVE Online have been encouraged to convert their virtual income into real monetary help for the Red Cross efforts in Haiti through donations of PLEXes, or game-time extensions. CCP, the developer of EVE Online, will forward 100% of the proceeds generated from donations to support Haiti. PLEXes (which extend a player's subscription for 30 days) are sold in batches of two for $34.99 in the United States, and are freely traded in the game's marketplace for ISK, the in-game currency.
