    Club Penguin Launches Coins for Change - It runs through January 1

    Club Penguin launched their annual online charity event -- Coins for Change.

    Now through January 1, kids are encouraged to donate the virtual coins that they earn playing games in Club Penguin to unlock the funding of 10 real world projects that will share a $1M USD donation from Club Penguin.

    We love it!

    Players will be able to donate their coins in order to fund projects that matter to them, such as the following:

    • Toys and warm coats for kids in the United States
    • A Clean water project for a community in Ecuador
    • Club Penguin hospital packages for kids around the world
    • Penguin nesting grounds in Argentina
    • Andean Cat and Golden Woolly Monkey habitat protection in Peru, Argentina, Chile and Bolivia.
    • The construction of an elementary school and education support programs for women and children in Africa
    • Painted dog and lion habitat protection
    • Protected areas for the snow leopard and saiga antelope
    • Ten new libraries in Ethiopia and five reading spaces for kids in India
    • New hospital wing to keep babies and mothers healthy in Malawi
