EVE Online's PLEX for Good campaign has once again done some good, benefiting charities supporting Ukraine during Russia's invasion of the country. Capsuleers raised over half a million dollars which CCP Games is donating to charities helping the people of Ukraine.
The campaign ran this month and saw Capsuleers, EVE Online developers, and CCP Games itself donate to the cause. PLEX, the premium currency in EVE Online, was donated to a character in-game by players, with CCP Games matching the donation total at the end of the campaign. All told, USD 501,652 has been raised to send to multiple charities working within Ukraine to help people overcome the devastation being wrought by Russia's invasion.

"Together we have achieved something amazing. With the PLEX for GOOD: Ukraine fundraiser now wrapped, together Capsuleers, individual EVE developers and CCP Games have raised a remarkable $501,652 USD. That money will now directly help those impacted by the ongoing war in Ukraine, including the millions forced to flee their homes and lives to find safety.
This isn't the first time EVE players have banded together to raise money for a good cause. Previous PLEX for Good campaigns have seen capsuleers donate in recent years to causes such as helping those who were affected by the Fukushima reactor disaster in Japan in 2011 and, most recently, the Global COVID-19 pandemic.
