Last year, in between November 4th through December 31st, Blizzard added the Pandaren Monk virtual pet for purchase in the hit-MMO, World of Warcraft. The price of the pet Panda was $10.00, with half of that going to the Make-A-Wish organization, a non-profit charity that works to give children with illnesses a chance to make their wish come true.
By the time the sale of the pet had ended, they had raised $1.11 million for the foundation, which works out to 222,000 Pandaren's sold. World of Warcraft executive director Frank Pearce stated that the Panda's sold much more then the 2 other virtual pets released around the same time as the Pandaren. The Make-A-Wish foundation received the cheque this past Tuesday, and that's something that will put a smile on many faces.
