It’s that time of year again! That’s right, it’s already time for Pink Day in LA!
On October 20, 2018, the Gamers Giving Back krewe will be taking over Lion’s Arch with Pink Day in LA in support of cancer research. Join us at 12 Noon CDT/ 5 PM UTC as we raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society’s International Research Fund. (Look for us in the Central Tyria - Open World Squads LFG!)
This year, we’ll have mini-games and contests on 4 megaservers, 2 in NA and 2 in EU. Look for ads with NA - Plush Griffon, NA - Peggellegg, EU - Aurene, and EU - Dragon’s Watch. There will be prizes, radio contests, donation blitzes, trivia, and more. Events will also be livestreamed on Twitch, look for us on the front page!
We’ll also have some real life prizes to give away, including items donated by former game director Colin Johanson. For a full list of the prizes, please visit us at http://pinkday.gamergivingback.com/prizes.php.
At Gamers Giving Back, we believe that cancer touches everyone in some way and we don’t think it should. We want to put an end to all cancer. That’s why we’ve chosen the Canadian Cancer Society to raise funds for. All funds donated go towards their International Research Fund so that no research is limited by a lack of funds. Representatives from the Canadian Cancer Society will be on air with Malibu Barbie at gw-en.com and in-game on the NA servers to answer questions. The Canadian Cancer Society is very transparent about where funds are used, and you can check them out athttp://www.cancer.ca/en/?region=on.
You can also join us on TeamSpeak for event discussion, story sharing, and more! For NA, we’re using the Sol TS (solts.org PW:franticzebra) and for EU, we have 2 community TeamSpeaks: ts.theopencommunity.org (EU - Aurene) and ts.gw2community.com (EU - Dragon’s Watch). You can also get links to the donation page, radio, and livestream from the TS.
We’re still collecting in-game and real life prizes for Pink Day! If you’d like to donate, please reach out Malibu Barbie in-game at Yailith.4056, Angel at AngelWriter.3652 or Lelling at Lelling.6795. (Donating also gets you on to the GGB Hall of Heroes, which can be found at http://pinkday.gamergivingback.com/hall-of-heroes.php.)
Look forward to seeing you there!
