UPDATE: The sale has drawn to a close. A heartfelt thanks to all who supported the flood victims. Check the blog tomorrow for the poll’s results!
Australia has been hit by disastrous floods of historic proportions, which have placed the country’s 3rd largest city underwater and inundated much of Queensland. To help, RockYou and the Zoo World Community are joining the relief effort, and providing a new way to raise funds for those affected.
Zoo World Premium Animal Benefiting Australia Flood Victims
Starting today at 3pm PST, the Australian Relief Kangaroo will be available in the shop. As with other 99c Zoo World animals, the Kangaroo is an animated Ultra Rare that can be bred. 75-90% of all proceeds from the Australian Relief Kangaroo, after costs, will be donated to the Flood Relief Effort.
This limited edition animal will be available from 3:30pm Saturday, January 15th to 3pm Tuesday, January 18th. All times are in Pacific Standard Time.
You Choose Where The Funds Go

The donations raised through this promotion will be donated to each organization in the proportion of the votes they received.
The three options are:
To vote in the poll, we encourage everyone to read up on these three deserving efforts, and to cast their vote at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/rockyou-relief-effort.
The poll closes at the same time as the sale, Tuesday January 18th, at 3pm PST. We will post the poll’s results on Wednesday, January 19th.
