ROBLOX Players Raise $5479.00 For Haiti Disaster Relief

 CheckToRedCross

Last week we started our now hugely successful “Hats for Haiti” donation drive, and this week we are mailing our first check out to the American Red Cross. The “Hats for Haiti” drive will continue for another week, after which we’ll write a second check for the remainder of the proceeds.

Dear American Red Cross:

Attached is a $5479 check for the International Response Fund. This donation was collectively raised by more than 16,000 players of ROBLOX, an online virtual building game. These players believe in your mission and wish that the money be used to benefit the people of Haiti after the terrible disaster there, in whichever manner your organization deems best.

Regards,

David Baszucki,

CEO ROBLOX Corp.

The ROBLOX Team is thrilled to be able to make this contribution to the efforts of the Red Cross, and we salute our very generous player base, more than 16,000 of whom directly contributed to the donation drive. You guys are great!
