Appeal for Afghanistan
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 email@example.com 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!
I wish you good luck. This is an amazing thing you’re doing
Is the donation worldwide?
Crowdfunder is a UK site but you should be able to donate from across the world.
Unfortunately I can’t donate due to no parental consent but I am so happy to see this post torres. I follow Afghanistan’s international cricket team for sometime now, they are really good at playing against all odds when their country is torn apart by war. The situation there escalated like so rapidly and it’s left me feeling really emotional, sympathetic towards their country. I hope there is more good than bad there and the situation improves just as quick as it worsened. Thank you so much for encouraging us to donate, really helps a lot.
Thank you very much, I really appreciate your comment. It’s certainly a terrible situation.
Beautiful thing to do, thank you Torres.
What’s happening in Afghanistan?
It is a poor situation currently. I probably shouldn’t go into too many details here, but it’s likely leading on the news. Essentially, since troops have been withdrawn from the country, it was taken over in a matter of days which has caused a lot of fear to those living there – many are currently trying to escape, or fearful for their lives.
I am not able to donate due to no consent, but when I saw this on the news I was so shocked.It is terrible,and if I could, I would donate..I hope the situation becomes better soon.
