Team Fortress 2′s Hats for Help

2011-04-01 by powerlord. 5 comments

Team Fortress 2 has been running a charity drive for the recent Japan disasters in a unique manner.  Between March 23rd and April 6th, Valve is selling three hats and two noisemakers in TF2’s in-game store with all proceeds from them going to support the Red Cross’s efforts in Japan.

Who would buy such a thing?  Well, I would for one.  On March 29th, Valve noted that they had sold $300,000 USD worth of these items.

For reference, the items being sold are:

  • Humanitarian’s Hachimaki – 7.49 USD
  • Benefactor’s Kanmuri – 19.99 USD
  • Bell Noisemaker – 1.99 USD
  • Gong Noisemaker – 0.49 USD
  • Japan Charity Bundle – 29.96 USD, including all of the above
  • Magnanimous Monarch – 99.99 USD
Humanitarian's Hachimaki  (Why are the images featuring the RED Spy? Well… check out my StackExchange avatar!)

You’ll see more articles from me down the line, likely about Team Fortress 2, with maybe a little World of Warcraft or Monday Night Combat thrown in.
