Following yesterdays report of the massive success surrounding the recently launched Bond system for Runescape Jagex have just announced a new incentive, the Well of Goodwill. During the original announcement for the Bond system CEO Mark Gerhard promised to deliver a new gold sink to help re-balance the economy. That promise has been delivered today as players can now donate money to the Well of Goodwill.
Players are now able to donate in-game items, gold or Bonds to the Well of Goodwill to aid a variety of charities such as Action for Kids, the Willow Foundation and GamesAid. Jagex will donate $1 for every 10 million Gold pieces.
?At Jagex, we have always been passionate about our charity work,?
commented Riaan Hodgson, Chief Operating Officer at Jagex. ?As a
company, we regularly raise funds and donate thousands of pounds to
charities each year. However, we have been keen to create an innovative
way to involve our community for some time, and hopefully as a result,
scale the effectiveness and reach of our charitable giving efforts.
With the Well of Goodwill, we believe we have created a perfect system
to allow our players to support worthy charities through their in-game
efforts without affecting their own real-world pockets.?
