Some WoW community sites have launched a fundraiser for the victims of the earthquake disaster in Syria and Turkey. To boost donations, the first thousand euros donated will be quintupled by the site.
Anyone who occasionally consumes news outside of the WoW cosmos has certainly noticed that there was a devastating earthquake in the region between Syria and Turkey. Entire regions were devastated and countless people lost everything they owned and in some cases even more.
Aid shipments have been sent to the affected region all over the world in the past week to provide the victims with the essentials. However, since this help also costs money, many fundraising campaigns have been started, in which each individual can contribute their part to help.

The WoW community has also started such a campaign and is of course participating vigorously. At the same time Raider.io, Warcraft logs, raidbots and Liquid Woman in Warcraft teamed up and set up a fundraiser to benefit Direct Relief.
In order to give the campaign a good boost and to make a contribution yourself, the first 1,000 euros in donations from each of the four initiators are matched. So if you donate one euro, the four community sites add one euro each and it becomes a whopping five euros.
