Blizzard does care about charities Rugus. Example being Ezra Chatterton. If they didn't care why would they have done so much for him?Next time, make sure you can support your comment.

They helped Ezra because it made Blizzard look good. People praised them for it, and if people think a company is "good", then perhaps they'll be more likely to buy their products. It's just good PR. Besides, what choice did they have? A dying kid's wish was to hang out with them. Blizzard would've looked horrible if they refused, which would've been bad for business.

Yes, they did for the cause of charity, not because that would have helped spreading out the Blizzard name (even more). Coem on guys, try to see beyond the surface. Charity does not need to be "shown". Real charity is made by those who give concrete help/money to those who need it, without needing to show all the world "how good you are, because you helped someone".

@JP Blizzard could have just brought the kid in, showed him around a bit, gave him a hat and sent him on his way. They went a little bit beyond that though.... You know not everyone at Blizzard is a heartless CEO or money leeching robot of some sort. Blizzard is made up of real people who do have feelings. Not everything is so black and white. Cripes.

@RugusI may be wrong, but I don't remember EVER seeing blizzard mention Ezra on their site. Everything that I read about was here on WoW.com, as they cover what's happening at blizzard. Seems more like someone just heard about the amazing thing Blizz did and decided to report on it.
