CCP Games’ PLEX for GOOD Initiative Raises Over $100,000 to Help Combat Australian Bushfires

By Poorna Shankar on February 07, 2020 | News | 0

In some good news, CCP Games, they of EVE Online, has announced that their PLEX for GOOD initiative has raised over $100,000 to help combat the Australian fires currently ravaging the country.

In a press release, additional details were provided of this milestone. The money was raised in just 11 days, which is pretty incredible. If you’re unfamiliar with PLEX for GOOD, it’s a charitable program operated by CCP Games on behalf of EVE Online players. It provides a way for EVE players to donate to a charitable cause through the use of the in-game digital currency PLEX, allowing for charitable donations by those who otherwise might not have the means to donate real money.

The money raised  equates to 2,687,693 PLEX, which is equivalent to 448 years of game time, and 9.14 trillion ISK at current market prices.

Players who donated a minimum of 100 PLEX will receive a piece of in-game apparel in March as a thanks for their generosity. This will consist of two t-shirts (one men’s and one women’s) featuring the logo of the Reserve Frontier Safeguard (RFS) for pilots to wear proudly.

Great work, community!
