Coins For Change and Giving

Coins_for_Change_Logo_2012

It’s that time of year again! The time when many people are celebrating family and taking time off from school and work for the holidays. It’s also time for Coins For Change in Club Penguin, where players get to choose how we divide a huge donation to worthy causes around the world. Coins For Change is probably one of my favorite things in CP…

We started doing Coins For Change back in 2007, because the Club Penguin Team wants to make the world be a better place for everyone. We want to see everyone have access to healthy food, clean water, education and a beautiful environment to live in.

Imagine… What if every penguin in CP worked together to change the world? To use less fossil fuel? To use less plastic? To build wells in developing countries where people have to walk for miles just to get fresh water? The possibilities are endless! Every little action from each person makes a difference. The more action, the better!

Did you know that the CP team works to give back all year round? It’s not just about giving a few virtual coins. It’s about doing real things in the real world to make a difference. That’s why we give a portion of every paid membership to help real world causes.

We even have a competition at work to see who can make the biggest difference in the world! Everything from printing less paper, to riding a bike instead of using a car. Every action you do earns you points, and it’s a big competitive game to see who can make the biggest difference in the world!

The team just finished up a video about Coins For Change that will be released on YouTube this week. Stay tuned for that, as well as some sneak peeks of the Holiday Party! Moose is almost finished the sneak peek video and we hope you love it! 🙂

Waddle on…

    I liked this post a lot. I started doing coins for change in ’07 and uploaded the smallest amount because I didn’t have that much. I really loved that you guys did this. With all the natural disasters and crisises that have happened since you started it in ’07 I can see that tons of people are eager to donate their coins. But I have a question, If we have 3rd party programs, are we aloud to use them to perm coins and then donate them? I’ve always wondered that because if I used them I wouldn’t exactly be cheating, I’d be helping. Please think about this.

    It’s amazing, the reason I started Club Penguin in 2007 was after seeing a commercial on Disney about Club Penguin’s Coins for Change.. And I’ve been a part of ever single one. 🙂
