PLANO, TEXAS (December 9, 2011) –As the weather outside turns frightful, Wizard101 is spreading winter warmth by kicking off 12 days of holiday events and surprises. To give this celebration a little more juice – Wizard101 is starting off with a charity moose!
"Over the last two years, KingsIsle and the Wizard101 community have raised over $180,000 for children's charities in Texas and around the country," said Elie Akilian, chairman and CEO of KingsIsle Entertainment. "This year, with the launch of a festive Chrismoose mount, we plan to raise another $50,000 to benefit two extraordinary Texas organizations."
The Chrismoose charity mount will gallop into Wizard101's in-game Crown shop on December 9th and be available for a limited time. The charity mount will support two organizations devoted to helping children: the Austin Children's Shelter
located in Austin, Texas, and Children's Medical Center at Legacy
, a pediatric hospital located in Plano, Texas.
Additionally, from December 9 until December 21, each day KingsIsle will unveil new ways to celebrate the season. There are many surprises planned, so be on the lookout for:
- Discounts on a variety of popular in-game items
