CCP's PLEX for good raises nearly 200,000 USD for Typhoon Hainan

EVE Online players donate 1060 years-worth of playtime in PLEX

EVE Online gamers have managed to do a rather decent bit for charity through CCP's PLEX For Good Campaign raising nearly 200,000 USD for the relief effort for Typhoon Hainan.

The campaign began on November the 20th with CCP taking in-game donations from EVE Online players in the form of PLEX (Pilot's License Extension) which would be converted into cash and donated to the Icelandic Red Cross to go towards the relief effort for Typhoon Hainan.

The culmination of the PLEX For Good was an eight-hour telethon campaign on CCP's Twitch.tv channel featuring CCP devs pledging unique donations ranging from getting tattooed, to developer boxing matches and even sparring against a Tae Kwon Do champion for each milestone that was reached.
