    Wow. Seriously, people, WOW. We knew you had it in you, but we're still amazed you've raised over $300,000 so far.

    Take a BOW, TF2 community -- because that is an incredible, frankly astounding, amount of money from a dedicated number of gamers, to one heck of a lot of people in some real need right now. Anytime someone gives you guff about something negative in gaming, you go ahead and point them to this post, because here's some late-breaking damn news: they are wrong and gamers are generous and awesome.

    Thanks again, and don't forget, these items are available until April 6.

    Hot dam I was guessing it was going to be $50,000 tops but $300,000!? At this rate I would not be shocked if it went over $500,000 by the end.

    Holy damn. TF2 players could practically buy and run their own country if they all banded together.

    I guess in perspective to the stamps it's a good sum, but I really would have thought it to be over 500k at this point.

    Though i feel the same way about this you also have to realise TF2 is played by a LOT of kiddies without bank accounts etc.

    I'm honestly surprised it got that high. I know a lot of people play, but I don't see that many of the hats in game and even fewer of the hundred dollar ones. (maybe seen 5 of those). Say 50% of them are just the $10 one, that's a hell of a lot of sales.

    Either way, it's really cool to see any company do a fund raiser like this.

    True. I've turned to joining random servers and saying that I'll open two server-size boxes of goodies if everyone equips an aid relief hat. Either nobody bothers or half the server equips and the other half complains that Japan is a rich country and can take care of itself.

    I am in despair from the TF2 Community yet again. At least the arguments get pretty interesting.
