Since late July 2011, Thailand has been suffering from “the worst floods they've seen in five decades” due to intense monsoon rains. The flood has affected over 2 million people, with over 300 reported deaths and billions of dollars in property damage.
This is your chance to make a difference. As part of Hello Kitty's birthday celebrations, Sanrio Digital is giving the players of Hello Kitty Online an opportunity to reach out through A Helping Hand for Thailand, a special in-game charity event to aid in the Thailand relief efforts.
Your efforts for this event will translate into a real-world cash donation to UNICEF and Save the Children, who have launched a joint project to ensure the safety and protection of the children who lost their homes due the disaster. Every child deserves a safe and child-friendly environment to live and play, and you can help make sure they get the care they need. Nothing would make Hello Kitty happier on her birthday!
How to Help:
This event runs from October 28 to November 2, 2011 Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Step 1: Obtain the following items to complete one set:
Step 2: Hand in one complete set to the Game Masters (GM) in Sanrio Harbour at the following times during the event period:
- 8:00 p.m EST
- 4:00 a.m. EST
- 12:00 noon EST
Step 3: Repeat as many times as you want to increase the total donation amount.
Hand in your first set of items (1 set = 50 Strong Wood, 100 Dry Mud 100 Long Curvy Vine) to receive a Tattered Bunny as reward for participation (maximum 1 per character).
At the end of the event, we will calculate the final cash donation based on the number of sets submitted, and the total amount will be given to UNICEF and Save The Children. There is no limit to how many times you can give, and each time you hand in a set of the required items, you are increasing the sum of money that Sanrio Digital will donate to this worthy cause.
Every bit of help counts, so we hope you all enjoy this special charity event. Thank you, and see you in the game!
