On the 22nd of April, World of Warcraft players all over the globe reached the stretch goal to raise $1 million for Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)! The donations were; "directed to the MSF COVID-19 Crisis Fund to support the organization’s global response to the pandemic and its consequences."
This year diverged from the normal model of donating through the shop by purchasing a pet, and instead asked players to donate directly to the charity. As a result, players were given two goals, with a pet being given to the entire
playerbase for each goal if they were reached, even if a player wasn't able to donate anything themselves.
Our first goal was $500,000, which unlocked the Trading Card Game pet Bananas.
The second, or stretch, goal was $1,000,000, which was reached on the 22nd and unlocked Daisy.
Both pets are now claimable through the shop until August 1, 2021
. After that date Daisy will continue to be purchasable through the shop, but that does not appear to be the case for Bananas.
So don't don't forget to claim your Bananas & Daisy, and thank you to all who donated!
