(In an attempt to balance the following negative comment, The Red Cross is a great organization to directly donate to. Your donation will be used to help deal with disasters around the world. Donate regularly and you will help them be prepared to respond to emergencies as they happen)

Is the DCUO item coming in June with the update that includes the Easter event?

I know it's received some coverage on the site before, so posting this doesn't seem inappropriate:

PoxNora was also informed that a special opportunity to donate would be presented; this had happened earlier, for a different cause, with an in-game item called "The Giving Tree."

However, SOE ultimately decided to just go with a portion of box purchase prices, which is unfortunate both as a moneymaker (being between expansions and just after the somewhat underwhelming launch of an alternate expansion system, I imagine box purchases are currently low) and because, in comparison to the items presented to these other projects, it felt like a lacking effort.

Luckily, the gaming sphere as a whole has presented many other excellent opportunities to both donate and donate -as- gamers. I still see SOE's handling of Pox as a missed opportunity, however.
