[YW/FW] Literacy Day Charity Initiative!

Postby Viking Sam » Tue Aug 24, 2021 4:21 pm

Hey YoFans! :heart:
On this day, we celebrate literacy around the globe! To better show our support for literacy, YoWorld and Fish World are launching a brand new campaign and it’s our goal this year to raise funds for the following charities with your support. Each charity seeks to provide the opportunity to those that may not have access to literacy based resources.

With your donation of 5USD or more to up to three of the following charities, you will receive one of our brand-new exclusive Eccentric Teacher Hairs, which will only be available through this campaign. That means you can claim up to three copies of this hair! :shocked:
Image

Our sister game, Fish World, will also be accepting donations for Literacy day for an exclusive item, so make sure to stretch your dollars and claim an Book-Hoarding Dragon on your Fish World account. Lastly, Big Viking Games will be matching up to $500 of donations!

Me, too. Charities take out too much for executive costs.

I do not get why you only keep creating female hairs all the time for these events spark deals and such. Not going to listen to comments about females play more because the only way to get males playing and buying and doing is by taking the risk.

This is such a wonderful idea, but I do wish the hair were more special looking.

I would support it in the future if you chose to do this again but highly recommend a better hair, and if we have to go through a detailed process to claim this anyway, create a possibility for the men to have a hair, too. We can indicate in the form we submit if we want the male or female hair.

I donated using the links that V. Sam left and it took me all of 5 minutes. Screenshots, uploads and all.

I'm definitely a supporter of this cause. I hope the money gets to the people who can use it. :)

I am very happy that BVG is taking part in humanitarian efforts like this :thumbsup: :heart: The choice of world literacy is also very good, since education is extremely important. I will donate later in the day to those organizations which accept PayPal. The YoWorld item reward is not that important to me. It is the idea and the effort. Kudos.

Great for those charities, but as the saying goes, charity begins at home and none are in the UK.
