SimCity Red Cross DLC raising money for charity

Right, so you're unhappy when EA releases ads as free DLC for SimCity, or paid DLC, or DLC free with toothpaste, but what about DLC which helps charity? What's that? You won't pay $9.99 for some pointless Red Cross odds and ends? Oh, what a monster you are!
EA today launched the Red Cross Disaster Relief DLC, which adds a new Red Cross Relief Center building to send Red Cross tents and vehicles out around your city when disaster strikes. Once EA covers the costs of making this, 80% of its proceeds (minus taxes) will go to the Red Cross. It'll cough up a minimum of $100,000, though.
The DLC's sold through Origin, if you're swayed by this sort of things.
