CP Rewritten: $750 Donated in Coins for Change

Despite not previously revealing the exact amount, Codey (an administrator) shared how much actual money was donated to the three charities as a result of Coins for Change!

$750 dollars were donated to these charities:

  • Lumos ($350)
  • Make-a-Wish ($250)
  • World Wildlife Fund ($150)

Receipts were also provided, proving recent rumours about the team failing to donate as false!

Although it’s understandably not as large as the amount Club Penguin donated, I think it’s so incredible that CP Rewritten has donated such a significant amount of money to charity to help make the world a better place rather than making profit!

In case you’re wondering, I made a blog post on how Coins for Change actually works which you can read here. Thank you very much for reading!

CP Rewritten: 64.5 Million Coins Donated

The results from the Coins for Change event during the Christmas Party last year have been revealed, and they’re extremely high! 66,349,900 coins were donated, which is an enormous amount!

As for how it works, the team have shared receipts to prove that they have donated the money. Firstly, the game has an advert on the bottom of the playing screen. Some money has to be spent on maintaining Club Penguin Rewritten’s servers, so this is deducted from the sum. The rest of the money is then donated to charities in the percentage that we, the community, donated to with our virtual coins.  For example, if 70% of total coins donated when to protecting the environment, then 70% of the total money donated would be given to the WWF.

Lumos is the charity which was selected to help children in need, and is founded by the author of Harry Potter. 23,321,800 coins were donated to this charity, making up 36.16% of total coins donated.

Make-a-Wish was another charity selected to grant children something special all across the world, including medical aid. 21,978,600 coins were donated, which is 34.07% of total coins donated, meaning that 34.07% of Club Penguin Rewritten’s ad revenue will be donated to Make a Wish.

WWF is the organisation which was donated to in order to help protect the environment/Earth and the future of nature. 21,049,500 coins were donated to this cause, making up 32.63% of total coins donated.

This means that the revenue has been donated to the charities this way:

  • Lumos – 36.16%
  • Make a Wish – 34.07%
  • WWF – 32.63%

I find it incredibly generous and amazing for the Club Penguin Rewritten team to remain non-profit and donate their revenue! No matter how much money was donated, it will allow the world to be just a bit better than previously before, which is amazing!

CP Rewritten: Coins for Change Begins

Coins for Change has begun on Club Penguin Rewritten and there are donating stations all across the island!

There are three causes to donate to which will be donated to charity to help people in real life!

  1. Lumos – Helps build safe places for children
  2. WWF – Helps support animals and the environment
  3. Make a Wish – Helps support children in need of medical assistance

The way the event works is that the money made from the ad revenue that hasn’t been spent on maintaining the servers will be donated. The more coins which is donated virtually in-game to that cause will result in there being more money donated to that cause in the real world.

To donate, find any of the Donating Stations across the island! You can then choose which cause you would like to donate to. Once you choose a cause, you can donate between 100 and 10,000 coins.

Once you donate for the first time, you’ll receive the Coins for Change 2017 pin!

You can donate an unlimited number of coins to Coins for Change! All this money will be going to help make the world a better place, so definitely be sure to do so! Thank you very much for reading, be sure to check back for more of the latest news!
