SteelSeries have announced that they will donate percentages of their next month's sales to help Japanese earthquake victims. We must know, that the earthquake in Japan killed over 8,800 people and the numbers are expected to rise significantly. The total recovery costs could reach $122 billion!! SteelSeries, whose design team collected inspiration from Japanese characters and culture, among other things, when naming their product line of gaming mice, have now decided to lend a hand to the victims affected by the recent catastrophes.
On the Steelseries website we can read:
"These influences were what made this SteelSeries product line the obvious category for this initiative. Throughout the next month, on every purchase of a mouse in the SteelSeries’ branded line of professional gaming mice, which include the 4 mice seen to the right, we will donate 25% of the proceeds to the Japanese Red Cross Society to aide in earthquake relief. We will also offer a 25% off discount of this product line in the SteelSeries Web Shop as an incentive to fuel our fundraising initiative. We hope our global community of gamers will help to drive this fundraising initiative or will aide in donations and support for victims by other means."
This gesture is to be applauded and should be replicated by other gaming companies.
