Today Blizzard announced that over $1.7 million was raised for the Make-a-Wish Foundation during Brightpaw's charity sale last December!
It's always heartwarming to hear that we, as a community, helped give back to those in need. Our simple love (and obsession) for pets has translated into something so generous and beautiful.
Kudos to Blizzard as well! I love reading about the efforts they take to give back to the world.
Every year they've released a special store pet, and for a period of time the proceeds from that pet go to a charity of their choice.
