How’s it going, Tyrians?

Pink Day 2020 and the 2020 Quaggan Waddle are nearly upon us! Are you prepared to join us in the fight against cancer once more? We’re very excited to have you all here!
If this is your first time hearing about us, we’re a group of gamers just like you who genuinely care about making the world a better place. Started way back in the day with Guild Wars 1, we’ve been working for many years now in furthering the fight against cancer, multiple sclerosis, and more! With the full support of the Arenanet developers, we continue to make a difference!

On Saturday, September 19th at 1 PM CDT (NA & EU) we will be having our volunteer meeting for both events! If you are able to volunteer and attend this meeting, it would help us make Pink Day that much more awesome this year! Volunteering isn’t necessary to participate in Pink Day though, so don’t worry if you are unable to! If you can though, we are always in need of people that can help!

The 2020 Quaggan Waddle officially debuts on September 26th at 4 PM CEST (EU) and 4 PM CDT (NA). Come and join us along with many others as we march through Tyria and spread the word about Pink Day and the fight against cancer! We’ll be starting in Rata Sum, making our way through Metrica Province, and then through the Caledon Forest. We’ll then depart and make our way to Lion’s Arch, through Timberline Falls, and then finally arrive at Fort Trinity! This event will be livestreamed, so come and join the party!

On October 17th at 12 PM CDT for NA and EU, we’ll be gathering in Lion’s Arch to kick off Pink Day 2020! If you aren’t on our Discord Server, join us at (https://discord.gg/8V5WCgD) to join in on the fun! Don’t forget to also tune in to the GW-EN Radio through https://gamergivingback.org/ as well to keep up with the events! Pink Day 2020 is also being livestreamed by many talented streamers, so be sure to watch out for their streams! We’ll be playing a variety of games and be having many events during the festivities, so make sure to watch out for those! There is even the chance to win real life prizes and in-game goodies should you choose to donate towards cancer research, so don’t miss out on that! If you are interested in donating, make sure you check out the donation link at the top right corner of our website at https://gamergivingback.org/!

We have connections to the Canadian Cancer Society, where 100% of the donations go to help further and advance cancer research. We chose the Canadian Cancer Society because of how transparent they are along with the fact that their work is not restricted by national boundaries; they help fund grants all over the world for cancer research! We at Gamers Giving Back keep zero of the donations for ourselves; any expenses that we pay come out of our own pockets.

    Yeah - I need to submit a support ticket. I'm still unable to edit the main post. Thanks for getting that clarified, Barbie!

    EDIT: I finally got it to edit. Huzzah.

  • Quaggan Waddle Hype! See you all in-game tomorrow - don't forget we are starting in Rata Sum!

    See you all there! :D I will be live on the radio streams too :open_mouth:

  • I just want to personally thank everyone who came out to Quaggan Waddle on the weekend! We had over $775 in early donations and so far have gathered 5 legendaries and a really awesome infusion to give out at Pink Day - among other awesome prizes!

    We appreciate all the support and loved the "Waddling" hype that everyone drummed up on NA and EU all day!

    See you all on the 17th! #pinkday2020
