Well of Goodwill Opens 1st November with New Charities
Donate to your choice of three great charities as the Well of Goodwill reopens!
From 1st November until 30th November, you'll be able to donate coins, items and Bonds into the well, just south of Varrock's Grand Exchange.
It needn't cost you a penny of your real-world cash, and there are two new titles to pick up: the Millionaire and the Billionaire.
Just click the well, decide how much you want to give, and which charity you'd like the donation to go to. You can even split it across more than one, if you like.
This year we're digging deeper - giving US$1 for every 5 million coins - and as before we'll donate US$4.70 for every Bond that you throw in.
With three awesome charities on offer this time around, it's money well spent:
AbleGamers empowers children, adults, and veterans with disabilities to achieve a greater quality of life through the power of video games.
When your mind is able, but your body isn't willing, video games provide the ultimate level playing field because in games, those with disabilities can run, jump, and soar, just like everyone else.
AbleGamers enables gamers with disabilities to play video games by providing grants of expensive, custom-built assistive technology.
DonateGames is a charitable organization that leverages video games, technology and innovation to help children and families suffering from cancer.
The charity provides direct support services to families battling cancer, helps pays the bills for families in need of financial relief and also delivers video game gift packages to children in hospitals.
Founded in 2007, DonateGames was started by entrepreneur Jim Carol, after witnessing the impact video games had on his son Taylor while receiving treatment during a 5-year battle with leukemia at age 11.
A trusted non-profit in the video game industry, DonateGames is a new breed of charity that unites a philanthropic purpose with high-growth, revenue-generating business models, providing gamers with a vehicle to change the world for children with cancer.
YoungMinds is a unique charity committed to improving the mental health and emotional wellbeing of children and young people.
Nearly a million children and young people in the UK have a mental health condition. People often find it difficult to talk about mental health because of the attached stigma, but no one should suffer alone.
YoungMinds campaign vigorously to raise awareness of young peoples' mental health and to address this stigma. Their website provides anyone, anywhere, with a trustworthy source of online information about mental health, and they also run a vital Parents' Helpline, as well as training for teachers and professionals.
Young people are at the centre of everything YoungMinds does; their youth engagement programme YoungMinds Vs is powered by thousands of young people who are asking for change and raising awareness in their communities and online.
Make a difference: help to improve mental health and get young peoples' voices heard!
However much you give, whether it's with in-game wealth or through buying Bonds, you'll be helping our chosen charities with their incredible work.
To say thanks, there are five titles for you to pick up:
- Any donation - The Wishful
- 10,000,000 coins - The Generous
- 100,000,000 coins - The Millionaire *new*
- 1,000,000,000 coins - The Charitable
- 5,000,000,000 coins - The Billionaire *new*
Note that these titles will automatically be unlocked if you've donated enough in previous Well of Goodwill appeals.
Looking for more ways to give? Three charity tunics will be available from Solomon's Store throughout November.
All proceeds go straight to charity, and they're a great way to spread the word in-game.
The Community Team are holding prize draws for anyone who donates 500,000 gold's worth of wealth or more in each week of November. The more you donate, the better your chance to win.
There'll also be milestone celebration parties, with the chance to win more prizes if you attend.
