Blizzard sells off old WoW servers for charity

Pretty awesome of them.

World of Warcraft fans helped to raise $330,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital following an auction to sell off a number of retired World of Warcraft server blades which stored the worlds that thousands of users played on.

The batch of retired EU server blades were encased in logo-emblazoned plastic and signed prior to auction on eBay which began earlier in January.

100 percent of proceeds went to the pediatric cancer center. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center in which families do not pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance, with the hospital covering the cost for food, travel and lodging for patients and a family member.
