ArenaNet donates $3500 to Guild Wars fan whose game copy survived a deadly housefire

Howasabout another feel-good story? Let’s do it! This one comes from Kotaku, which covered a large donation Guild Wars 2 studio ArenaNet recently made to a fan.

According to the GoFundMe, which is still live and has surpassed its original $5000 goal, the family of Georgia resident Frances Hunsucker was devastated by a house fire; while all the humans escaped the blaze, two pets did not, and everything they owned was destroyed. Well, almost everything. Hunsucker uploaded a video of her classic Guild Wars Nightfall DVD case, which didn’t seem much affected by the flames.

“The local Game Stop people know me as the ‘crazy Guild Wars lady,'” she reportedly told Kotaku.

ArenaNet chipped in $3,595 toward the “crazy Guild Wars lady’s” fundraiser along with a swag bag, propelling the donations over the top and hopefully helping the fam through the first steps of rebuilding. Next time you say Thanks, ArenaNet, you should really, truly mean it.

Speaking from experience when I had a dryer fire, after getting my wife out I managed to find half of my cats, the others hid out of instinct, apparently out of instinct I saved the home by throwing my dryer across the utility room away from the wall, spent a couple minutes dumping mop buckets on it managed to put it out before the Fire Dept showed up, couldn’t breath right for a couple weeks.

On the bright side the other cats found good hiding places as they turned out fine.

Long story short animals hide when they’re scared, your house will quickly fill up with smoke and decrease visibility while suffocating you if you decide to hang around like a moron like I did.

Worth it. You saved their lives. You are their hero. Well, as much as anyone can be a hero to a cat…

Didn’t even think about it, probably the same mentality that’s gotten me through 6 years in Healthcare at a Hospital.

Yeah, happens. I know. I was just sad.

Normally pets hide to avoid the danger, so they flee outside, but it can’t always be done.

Knowing myself, i would prolly die trying to save them.

At least we agree on something (meaning I think the same way, I could see how it might be taken another way so just covering my bases and over thinking it).
