Thanks to your generous and incredible efforts this holiday season, we're pleased to announce the closing of our annual Holiday Charity Fundraiser with a record-breaking total of $5,680 raised to benefit the Save the Children organization! The generous and caring spirit of Talonians everywhere shone brightly this holiday, allowing us to collectively raise such an extraordinary amount to allow Save the Children to continue their important work helping children around the world live happy and healthy lives. We're proud and pleased to let you know that not only did this amount exceed our posted goal this year, but as always 100% of these proceeds are going directly to support Save the Children's work in 120 countries around the world to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.
For those players who donated to this year's holiday fundraiser, claiming your gift item(s) is an easy process! Read below for the full details on how to obtain your item(s) this year. From all of us at TalonRO, thank you for showing how wonderful, genuine, and extraordinary this special community is through your generosity in helping children around the world live happy and healthy lives. We could not be more proud of the Talonian community - and as always, happy gaming!
Players who donated to this year's holiday fundraiser will have their item(s) sent directly through in-game mail to the character name specified at the time of donation through Crowdrise. Claiming your item(s) this year is as easy as checking your in-game mail through any of the town mailbox NPCs. Once you access your in-game mail, you will see your item(s) from TalonRO's holiday fundraiser! You may need to relog on your account should your character have been online when the items were sent, as you might not otherwise see the in-game mail right away.
As a reminder, this year's items are all account-bound, and the items for each of the donation gift categories this year were as follows:
$10 USD Donors will receive one (1) special Surprise Box, which will contain some wonderful and enjoyable goodies inside! $25 USD Donors will receive one (1) exclusive Magic Books Costume! Donors at this level will also receive one (1) Surprise Box as well! $50 USD Donors will receive one (1) charity event exclusive Eira Pet Egg! This magical pet and companion when loyal will grant an increase of effectiveness of your Heal, Sanctuary and Potion Pitcher skills by 5%, along with a 2% chance of gaining 5% of the damage inflicted on an enemy as HP with each attack. Donors at this level will also receive both the Surprise Box and Magic Books Costume as well. For any player who seems to be missing their item(s) from this year's holiday fundraiser, please send in a Support Ticket. We will work with you to verify your donation in the Crowdrise system through our system and ensure that your item(s) will make it to you successfully.
Thank you again for your generosity in helping to raise money for such a noble cause. We hope that you enjoy your thank you gift(s) from our annual fundraiser, and look forward to all of the continued joy we share in together as a community!
