Last month, iam8bit held a charity drive for Rainforest Trust by donating 5% of sales of Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Thanks to the purchasing power of the video game community, $58,000 was raised! As the infographic in the tweet below shows, that’s enough to protect an area that’s equivalent to 34 Central Parks — which is 2.5 miles long and half a mile wide!

 

 

Such an outpouring of generosity is always great to see, and it’s especially uplifting to see it in a time where money is tight for many. Always remember to look out for others and the world around you – monetary or otherwise!
