Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts Fundraiser a Success!

December 3, 2012  Torrance, CA – Aksys Games will be donating $12,920.00 to the American Red Cross after its successful “Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts Sale” on November 14, 2012.

Upon hearing about the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, Aksys Games staff huddled up to figure out a way to help those affected by this disaster.  On November 14, 2012, Aksys Games announced that it would be launching a “Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts Watch Sale” with all sale proceeds going to the American Red Cross.  Fans of both Aksys Games and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward responded, and purchased the watches so quickly that they were all sold out within 24 hours.

Aksys Games would like to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, those who reached in their pockets and purchased a Virtue’s Last Reward watch to help our friends on the East Coast.  We sincerely hope that this donation will aid in the ongoing relief efforts.
