Blizzard raises over $330,000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Blizzard raises over $330,000 for St Jude Children's Research Hospital
Were you lucky enough to get a server blade? What's a server blade, you ask? Server blades are pieces of hardware, and in the case of WoW, they're pieces of hardware that once housed realms from World of Warcraft. In October of last year, it was announced that Blizzard would be auctioning off these collectible and frankly, awfully pretty items via eBay.

As for the proceeds, they were headed toward St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for cancer and other catastrophic diseases that affect children. It was an amazing fundraiser for an equally amazing cause, and today Blizzard posted the results of the auctions. Over $333,000 was raised for the cause, and Blizzard has posted a heartfelt thank-you on the official site. $330,000 is a pretty astonishing number. Frankly, it's moments like this that make me step back, smile just a little and take a whole lot of pride in the gaming community.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital charity auction ending soon

Blizzard is currently auctioning off old server blades from days gone by in WoW's history for the best cause you could possibly support -- saving children's lives. Starting today, the last two waves of the server blade auctions are beginning, with all proceeds from the charity auction going to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the immensely important research it does. Even some WoW Insider readers have stories of their own from St. Jude's.

If you'd like to own a real awesome piece of World of Warcraft history and donate to an important cause, check out all the details on the server blade auction information page and on Blizzard's own community blog.
