It's Feelgood Friday once more and this week’s positive vibes come courtesy of Gamigo and the Eden Reforestation Projects' ecological efforts. Thanks to the generosity of the communities within titles such as Trove, ArcheAge and Fiesta Online (among many others) the charity drive that has been taking place over the Christmas period and beyond has so far raised enough cash to plant over 76,000 trees. That’s a lot of green.
The charitable efforts of all those involved have been so successful, in fact, that Gamigo recently announced an extension of their partnership with the ERP and an extra two weeks of fundraising.
“Following the overwhelming success of our first cooperation with Eden, it's incredible to see our players come together once again over Christmas and beyond. We’re honored to have a community that supports this charity by participating in the events, purchasing charity packages or just spreading awareness of Eden's efforts. That’s why we decided to extend the event for another two weeks and show our support of the important work the people at Eden Projects are doing and that everyone can make a difference, no matter how small it might seem.” Says Jens Knauber, COO of Gamigo.
While breathing life back into the world in the form of reforestation is undoubtedly a noble cause in itself, it’s also worth highlighting the lives that have been positively impacted through gainful employment as a result. And it’s by enhancing your gameplay through the purchase of a Gamigo charity package that you could also contribute.
To get involved, swing by the charity giving page, select your favourite Gamigo title, drop a few real-world coins on a helpful package and game away - safe in the knowledge that you’ve played your part in this good cause. Alternatively, there’s a whole host of events taking place in Gamigo's many titles as well as a charity raffle boasting some tasty prizes, so there’s plenty of ways to get involved.
What's more, there’s extra incentive for competitive gamers as Gamigo has set up a leader-board broadcasting just how many trees each community has contributed - and it looks as if Trove is currently running away with the trophy. Are you going to let that stand, ArcheAge fans?
We look forward to reporting on the final figure in two weeks time, so let’s get that number up to 100,000 trees!
