Charity mount idea for Haiti

Since the mount for children's charities was such a huge success. Why not do one for the relief effort in Haiti? If there was ever a need this would be one. This is a great community and it would be wonderful to come together and do something to help.

what a great idea. So how do we spread the word or like actually get someone from ki to read it?

Oh my gosh! This is an AMAZING idea! alright, here are some suggestions:

-Rocklossus(Pet) comes with free card-Earthquake
-Obsidian Wand/Staff(Wand/Staff) comes with 80 damage Wand Attack
-Island Garments(Outfit) comes with card-Earthquake
-Quake Qat(Mount-a Rock Lion or Tiger) comes with card-Earthquake

Remember all of these will go to Haiti to help! Please, I'm begging you! Our entire school is making fundraisers for Haiti!

As much as I want to agree with you Gabbyknight, I can not on this topic. Local children charities are one thing but when proposing to send money to a dictatorship country that’s a completely different story. Honesty, how much of that money will reach the population. Sad to say, the country is a failed state prior to the earthquake and will be after everyone leaves the country. In stead of throwing the money away, I would suggest sending food and water before any type of money.

We appreciate that our fans want to help, but the best way you can do this is through the official channels set up by the Red Cross.

You can use your cell phone to text "Haiti" to 90999 and $10 will be charged to your cell phone bill and sent to the Red Cross, or you can make a donation through their website at http://www.redcross.org/.

It could have been set up to go directly to the Red Cross..

agree with wizardwarrior to an extent.

agree with greyrose for sure.

the reason the mount idea won't work is because KI doesn't necessarily have the means to secure the transfer of money internationally. plus, it would be much faster to just donate directly from the individual to entities already able to provide support in Haiti. that, and the money would be delayed by the simple fact that the mount would have to be designed, coded, published...

that said, look into the red cross' ability to operate at the moment. any money would help for sure, but the red cross in haiti has been demolished. to be sure, they will be up and operational sooner than later, but there are other entities who provide similar help and are logistically able to turn donations into relief faster at the moment.

Came to Message boards to suggest this as well. I would definately buy more crowns for this worthy cause, but Wiz 101 is right - direct donations are better. God Bless and help Haiti as long as they need it...

It would be so nice to help the people in Haiti. Maybe the mount would be riding on a lightning bat or how about riding in a small car or motorcycle!

Awesome idea! I wish Merle would see your subject! But, for the Haiti mount it could be a faster mount. 8)I would buy that. I mean, me and my friends ave races fun so faster? Get my point?

Seriously WizardWarrier! How would you feel if you had an earthquake and you were trapped for two weeks under a building without water? YOU WOULD DIE, WOULDNT YOU? I would. I like the idea of a charity mount. But, what if Merle already has the money going to Haiti? We dont know.
