Thanks to everyone’s generosity, enough funds have been raised to plant over 100,000 trees so far. But why stop there? gamigo and its communities will keep up the momentum with Eden Projects to pledge even more trees in affected regions from now through May 10, 2020!
“The global gaming community has the potential to become a significant contributor in the fight against climate change, species extinction, and poverty alleviation, and we are thrilled to see the positive response to gamigo’s event in support of Eden Reforestation Projects.

We all know and understand that the Covid-19 Pandemic has become a global crisis and focus, but the partnership between gamigo and Eden provides the means for us to stand together in these difficult times by turning entertainment into positive social and environmental action. We are grateful to each person who has responded to the opportunity to plant trees and save lives as you play your favorite games. ” says Steve Fitch, CEO of Eden Reforestation Projects.
