ChairtyStars Supporting Our Gaming Community
Time to touch on the business side of our gaming community for a second. CharityStars is hosting an auction to support the La Casa Pediatrica dell’Azienda Ospedaliera di Rillevo Nazionale Fatebenefratelli. The auction will also benefit the Oftalmico di Milano that is also a new charity that began last year.
Now if you don’t know who I am talking about here… don’t worry I have answers! ChairtyStars is an organization created in 2014 with the purpose to impact the non-profit sectors and other charities. This team has two headquarters based in London and Milan. They are committed to making sure that everyone in the gaming community (including developers) has a shot at contributing to the gaming world.
CharityStars are responsible for helping with the majorly successful mobile games such as Farm Heroes, Bubble Witch, Pet Rescue, and Candy Crush.
There is one auction in specific that many game/app developers may find of great use if they win. Currently there is an auction to have a business lunch with Riccardo Zacconi, the founder of Candy Crush. The highest bid at this exact moment right now is at €1,190 ($1,300 USD). This auction will end on January 8th, 2016. If you would like to place a bid or simply view more details, you can do so by going here.
There are multitudes of auctions for other industries such as Fashion, Art & Design, Cinema & TV, and Music. Although ChairtyStars does not solely supporting the gaming world, it is important to realize that we are all connected to each other in some shape or form. Currently they have raised € 2,985,360.00 ($3,242,100 USD) and will continue to grow as time goes on. Maybe if I can hit the lottery anytime soon, I will be able to make a bid on one of the auctions. If not, then I will simply admire from a far and contribute what I can.
