UPDATE: Our charity campaign has now ended. Thank you for all your generous donations! We're currently getting our stats monkey to work out the final figures and we'll reveal the totals very soon..
Last year Palringo users raised a phenomenal $235,000 USD for Islamic Relief and Charity Right during our Ramadan campaign! By donating Palringo credits through our specially created Charity Bots, the money raised helped our chosen charities to distribute much needed food and medical aid to over 30,000 people in affected areas around the world. Read more about our 2013 campaign here.
After last year's success, we’re hoping to raise even MORE money this year! The campaign will be running until 29th of July. We’re delighted to announce that we will be partnering with 2 charities; Islamic Relief for the second year running and Child’s Play, a charity which seeks to improve the lives of sick children in hospital with toys and video games.
Here's how to to get involved:
Get a special Charity Bot for your group for free on our webstore. You can choose between the Child's Play Bot or the Islamic Relief Bot , or you can get both!
How to donate:
In any group that has a Charity Bot, simply type “!charity” or "!ir" for instructions. To use the option to donate in private simply start the donation process in a PM with the corresponding Bot.
Unicode sometimes causes issues with the Bots and Message Packs, if you do not see the experience you are expecting it may be down to the combination of characters in your nickname .
To make a donation you'll need to charge your account with some Palringo Credits. All funds from donated credits will go directly to the nominated charity.*
This year we have also created some fun Message Packs for each charity, which can be bought from our store using your Palringo credits. 50% of funds from the purchase of these Message Packs will go directly to the charity of choice.
* An 8% charge will be deducted from donations to cover merchant handling fees. There is no commercial gain for Palringo.
