Team Fortress 2 in-game store sales raise over $430,000 for Japan earthquake relief

The Team Fortress 2 community came through with a ton of money to help earthquake relief efforts for Japan.

Several days ago Valve released three exclusive in-game character hats for players to purchase via the in-game store to raise money for the Red Cross’ efforts in Japan. The three hats, which included one that cost $100, were designed to become unavailable after the fund raiser was concluded.

On Friday, Valve announced on the official Team Fortress 2 website that $430,543.65 was raised for the Red Cross as a result of the in-game hat sale.

It’s currently unknown how much money was raised from each hat individually.

    It would certainly be interesting to find out how many players bought the expensive hat. If I still played TF2, I probably would’ve considered it.

    I think in a few years the virtual hat trade will make more money than the real hat trade.
