This post is going to be a little unrelated from Club Penguin. As you may be aware, the current situation in Afghanistan has been absolutely heart-breaking for so many people involved.
It’s easy to feel very helpless in this situation, and it’s certainly extremely upsetting. One of the charities providing support on the ground in terms of basic necessities is being maintained the family of former British minister Rory Stewart, who has been doing some absolutely fantastic in running a local charity for over a decade.
I have never tried using Club Penguin Mountains as a platform for fundraising before, but in this desperate situation, every donation can make a difference. Therefore, if you’re able to and with parental oversight, please consider donating if possible. I can also confirm that all revenue generated this month by Club Penguin Mountains until next week, before the fundraiser ends, will be donated to this charity.
As a little incentive beyond the help which you can provide, if you’re willing to donate and provide your mailing address, I’d be happy to send you a signed postcard in the post. In order to do this:
- Donate at least £5 (GBP) or your currency’s equivalent at the official link below – this is roughly about $7 (USD)
- Check your email inbox for a confirmation message after you donate; it contains no personal details beyond your name
- Forward that email, alongside your mailing address, to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will mail you a signed postcard
This is my first time trying something like this, but I hope that it can make a difference and raise even a few funds for those suffering. Although I am obviously hesitant to promote this on a Club Penguin blog, I think it’s the right thing to do. If you can’t donate though – that’s completely okay!
