// I do not speak on behalf of Blizzard Entertainment

This Christmas, 2015, Red5 Studios failed to make its payroll. 

My name is Cher Stewart, I live in Huntington Beach, California, and I am a Software Engineer at Blizzard Entertainment. As someone who has worked as a contractor and in start ups, I know how hard it is to struggle through a missing paycheck. We are all family and I can't imagine struggling through this through the holidays, not knowing if or when I would be paid again, or if I even was going to remain employed at all.

With $100,000, we could easily give every Red5 employee ~$2000 to cover the costs of the holidays and hopefully some hope for the future.

Please help me in helping out these families. No one should have to suffer through an unexpected missing paycheck, especially not at Christmas.

The funds will be given directly to a selected, trusted Red5 employee who is bound legally to evenly distribute the funds to the other employees who also were not paid. His name is being left out here to protect his identity in case of ramifications from The9 or Red5 following the publicity of this event.

Red5 dispersed the late payroll today, and we hope they received enough funds to cover payroll next week. I will be holding the donations to cover any late fees, overdraft fees or other issues anyone had.

If there weren't any, I will return them to you, the donors.

Sorry this trouble hit you R5 employees. I'm studying to become a programmer. I'd wish this experience on no one. I lost a military contract before so I know what it's like to hear you have a job one day and find out differently the next. Wishing you the best. ~m2bandit
