On August 25th, one of the largest hurricanes in the history of the United States made landfall in South Texas. The torrential rains and unprecedented floodwaters resulting from Hurricane Harvey have forced tens of thousands to evacuate from their homes. Meanwhile, large areas of Houston and other parts of Texas are still being affected by the floods to this day. We understand how much the Roblox community cares and wants to help during this disaster.

Starting today, Roblox is offering two Texas-themed hats in the Catalog to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts: the Texas Rodeo Hat (10 Robux) and Wild West Ranger Hat (100 Robux).

From the sale of these two items, we will donate 100% of gross proceeds to the international nonprofit organization Direct Relief up to $25,000. Both items will be available from now until September 13, 2017 or until we reach $25,000 in sales, whichever occurs first. This charity provides direct and targeted assistance to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies in 70 countries, including the United States. In Texas, they are focusing on helping people who are most vulnerable, extending the reach of relief, and bolstering front-line responders. The entirety of your donation will go directly towards their on-the-ground efforts, providing people and communities in Texas with medical care and much-needed emergency supplies. You can read more about Direct Relief’s mission by visiting their website here.

We urge everyone in the community to support the relief efforts in their own way, whether it’s by purchasing these items on Roblox, donating to the cause directly via their preferred charity, or sharing this news with their friends and family.

Our hearts go out to all those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. We hope that the contribution from the Roblox community can make a positive difference in people’s lives.
