Today, Wargaming, developer and publisher of leading free to play naval combat games, World of Warships (PC) and World of Warships: Legends (consoles), has announced its upcoming Christmas charity livestream, featuring 24 hours of games, special guests, giveaways and charity challenges. To further spread the spirit of giving, Wargaming will offer charity bundles for sale to both PC and console players, with all proceeds going to global humanitarian organization Save the Children. Finally, upon completion of the livestream, Wargaming will match the funds that have been raised by viewers with a donation of its own.
From 12:00 p.m. ET on December 10, players and fans can tune into the livestream, donate, and earn in-game rewards. All proceeds of the entire livestream will be dedicated to Save the Children, which works every day in more than 100 countries to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. This is part of a continued partnership with the charity, which has seen Wargaming’s community raise over $88,000 USD in previous years.
“We are very grateful to be in a position to help our charity partner Save the Children and support them in an effort to protect those most vulnerable and improve their living conditions,” said Sergey Vorobyev, World of Warships’ Product Director. “The Holiday season is traditionally especially festive in the World of Warships community, thus we wanted to spread the joy even further and give our players an opportunity to unite and support a worthy cause.”
During the stream, viewers can participate in charity auctions with rare ships and unique merchandise, interactive games, and quizzes, as well as watch in-game battles with special guests, and the World of Warships staff generally having fun at their own expense for a good cause.
“Save the Children is thrilled to, once again, partner with Wargaming and their dedicated community of gamers who have been extremely supportive to our efforts,” said Ettore Rossetti, Lead Advisor, Technology/Marketing/Innovation Partnerships for Save the Children.
The event also marks the launch of the Save the Children Charity Bundle in the World of Warships Premium Shop. These containers will include a unique patch and flag, along with a boatload of camouflages for players to deck out their winter warships. Console players will get their own charity bundle in World of Warships: Legends. 100% of the proceeds of these limited time bundles will be donated to Save the Children and matched by World of Warships with an equal donation.
This stream will be hosted on the World of Warships Twitch Channel here.
