IRON REALMS SPONSORS CHILDRENS' CHARITIES

Mill Valley, CA -- December 8, 2003 -- Iron Realms Entertainment, an award-winning California-based developer of text-based massively multiplayer games (MMORPGs) announced today that it is donating 10% of its gross revenue from its three games for the next week to three different childrens' charities. Achaea is going to donate to the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program. Aetolia will give to the Children's Miracle Network, and Imperian will give to the Starlight Foundation.

"We're thrilled to be in a position to help bring some holiday cheer to needy and ill children. Games bring out the kid in all of us and I hope we're able to make some kids' lives brighter," said Matt Mihaly, Iron Realms' CEO.

Some of you who posted in the previous discussion should be ashamed of yourselves for negatively depicting a game's good will. So what if it cost $1.2k for some online item, the thought is what counts. Frankly, that is $120 bucks in some needy charity's pocket. More then most of you can say you are donating at all, let alone anything close to $120.

I am part of two not-for-profit community groups and to see one business offering ten percent of of their total income could mean some real positive change in a time when money is hard to come by, no matter the group who is in need.

The only way there would be a negative was to find out the business donating the funds had a sweat shop or that the charity used to money to pay their spokesperson thousands of dollars to feed her and not the children.

I have closed this forum to prevent other posts. Have a complaint, post it elsewhere!
