Give the Gift of Magic with this Giving Tree!
As part of KingsIsle Entertainments ongoing charitable efforts, we offered our players a chance to give a little Magic to someone else this year.

When you purchased a Giving Tree Seed from the Crowns Shop at the price of 2500 Crowns (approximately $5), KingsIsle Entertainment kept tally of all the purchases made before January 3rd 2011. You raised $55,182 and we have donated the entire value of the sales of the item to the following two charities in Texas:

Children's Medical Center - Plano Texas

“Children’s Medical Center is thankful for the support of KingsIsle Entertainment’s Wizard101 community,” said Pete Kline, president of Children’s Medical Center Foundation. “The Giving Tree Seed that was sold online over the holidays is helping the next generation learn the importance of philanthropy and giving back. This was a great way to foster the broad-based community support that Children’s needs to care for North Texas kids every day.”
Children's Medical Center is private, not-for-profit, and is the seventh largest pediatric healthcare provider in the country with 559 licensed beds, two full-service campuses and 10 outpatient sites. Children's was the state's first pediatric hospital to achieve Level 1 Trauma status and is the only pediatric teaching facility in North Texas, affiliated with UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Austin Children's Shelter - Austin Texas

Austin Children’s Shelter protects and heals children, young adults and families in need. Established in 1984, ACS provides emergency shelter and long-term residential care for children and youth who have experienced abuse and neglect or are at extreme risk. Through a variety of critical services designed to reduce emotional trauma, a teen mother program and services for youth aging out of foster care, ACS can have a sustaining, positive effect on young lives.

To learn more about the Shelter, visit the website at www.austinchildrenshelter.org.
ACS is so grateful for the generosity of KingsIsle Entertainment. Their efforts – to provide an opportunity for children to help other children – not only provides us with critical resources for our programs, but also teaches the importance of giving to the next generation. We are so fortunate to have them as a partner in our work.
