FW: Wizard101 Unveils New Mount to Raise Money for Children's Charities

This just in from the news wire!

Wizard101 Unveils New Mount to Raise Money for Children's Charities
Sales of "Meowmodon" to support Child's Play and the Austin Children's
Shelter

We are proud to give our players and their friends a unique way to support
children this holiday season. The purchase of an in-game mount, the
"Meowmodon", will benefit the Austin Children's Shelter and Child's Play.
The Austin Children's Shelter provides emergency shelter and care for abused
and neglected children and Child's Play is a game industry charity dedicated
to providing games and toys to children in hospitals worldwide.

The black and white Meowmodon resembles a large tiger and sells for 7,500
in-game Crowns per mount. For each Meowmodon mount sold, KingsIsle will
donate the full amount (a retail value of approximately $15) to the two
charities, divided equally. The Meowmodon is available for purchase through
the in-game Crown Shop from December 14, 2009 through January 5, 2010.

"We have an opportunity to give back by tapping into the power of our
Wizard101 community - our 5 million players can make a real difference to
deserving children," said Elie Akilian, CEO of KingsIsle Entertainment. "We
chose these organizations because we wanted to support the communities that
we are a part of - one located in the same city as our design studio and
another with global reach, just like Wizard101."

I'm uber excited they chose to go with Child's Play. It's a charity that
I've talked about before on this blog, so maybe-just maybe-my little voice
might have helped raised the chant. GO KINGSISLE!

Happy Dueling!
