Kids Donate 12 Billion Virtual Coins

Kids Donate 12 Billion Virtual Coins - Club Penguin - MMORPG.com

Club Penguin devs have released a new video championing kids' giving over the holidays. During the "Coins for Change" campaign, players were encouraged to donate virtual coins that would later see tangible giving in the form of a million dollars split among three charities. Players were given a list of charities to choose from and voting netted the lucky charitable recipients.

Here's the breakdown of how much real money will go to each cause:
 
  • $300,000 will go to build safe places
  • $360,000 will go to protect the earth
  • $340,000 will go to provide medical help
Great job, everyone! Thanks again for all the coins you donated. We'd love to hear what you think of the results. Be sure to let us know in the comments! 
 
Until then... Waddle on!
