We are proud to report the outcome of the 2008 Coins for Change campaign!
A huge thanks goes to all Club Penguin players for embracing the spirit of giving! By donating your virtual coins to real world causes, you really showed your passion for helping others and making a difference in the world.
The second annual Coins For Change campaign ran from December 12-22, 2008, and was an astounding success with two-and-a-half million of you donating your virtual coins to support causes dedicated to helping children.
At the end of the campaign, over three billion virtual coins had been donated! These coins served as votes to determine how New Horizon Foundation (an organization started by the founders of Club Penguin) divided a $1 million donation. Each cause is dedicated to helping children.
As a final show of our appreciation, Club Penguin was so impressed by your enthusiastic response to Coins For Change we decided to contribute another $500,000. This donation has gone to support charitable causes in the countries and areas where Club Penguin’s international offices are located.
Once again, a huge thanks to Club Penguin players. For the second year in a row, you demonstrated your generosity and helped make Coins For Change a huge success.
