Well, you can't make these kinds of stories up. The WoW Charity Pet program reached its final goal today as one million dollars has been raised for Doctors Without Borders, but the story gets even better.
The final donation that brought the total over $1,000,000 came in from a couple of souls currently seeking redemption in the Shadowlands, or more accurately, their voice. Arthas and Garrosh voice actor Patrick Seitz was the final donation that brought the total over the cap, and seems to have donated over 1,400$, based on some of his comments!
He is referring to the top fundraisers list in that second tweet, where "Anduin" is sitting pretty in second place, and unfortunately we don't get to see Garrosh up there, due to a login mixup.
After talking about a photoshopped image of a Garrosh-sloth merge, one of of his followers obliged:
Steve Danuser (Narrative Lead) and Christie Golden (Senior Writer) spotted the tweet and had some comments on Arthas and Garrosh trying to buy their way to redemption:
So, it seems whatever it is that the Venthyr are doing to Garrosh and the torments Arthas is enduring in Torghast are pushing them to do some good things, even int he real world! Also, big thanks to our own Aernath for spotting the tweets in the first place!
The WoW community has done it, raising $1 million for Doctors Without Borders! This also means that Daisy the Sloth will be unlocked for everyone starting on April 23rd!

Congratulations! $1 Million USD was generously donated to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) by the World of Warcraft community! The Daisy, the Sloth goal has been reached and she will become available to modern World of Warcraft players for free as soon as possible on April 23 from within the Blizzard Shop.

Your generosity to the MSF COVID-19 Crisis Fund will enable urgently needed medical care and support in more than 70 countries to counter the new coronavirus disease.

More hotfixes arrive this week, both for retail and Classic, including some raid and Mythic+ fixes as well as Chronoboon and a trinket getting some attention.
