SMITE: HI-REZ STUDIOS LAUNCHES SMITE IN-GAME FUNDRAISER TO AID RED CROSS RELIEF EFFORTS IN


Posted: May 12, 2015 11:03 pm | Gaming Press Releases | Stock Ticker: NASDAQ:FB, NYSE:TWTR

Hi-Rez Studios, the developer of the free-to-play action MOBA game - SMITE - today kicked off a new campaign with its community to support the international humanitarian response of the American Red Cross to last month's devastating earthquake in and around Nepal.

 

The Nepal Earthquake Relief Chest will be available now through May 17 for 400 Gems, SMITE's in-game currency. Players who purchase the chest will randomly receive one of the following six God skins for use in SMITE: Lucky Baby Fuwa (Cupid), The Sydney Shredder (He Bo), Orbital Strike (Rama), Jaguar Footballer (Xbalanque), Ra'Merica (Ra), and Soldier of Fortune (Ares). For every chest sold, Hi-Rez Studios will donate $2 to the international relief efforts of the American Red Cross.

 

The SMITE community has raised more than $200,000 for various American Red Cross efforts over the past year. Contributions to the American Red Cross International Services network advance its widespread humanitarian mission, including: direct aid for victims; cash transfer programs; information management, especially to help reunite separated families; coordination of supplies to the many affected regions; and preparedness training for future emergencies.
