It's trite and cliche, but also true -- the holidays are the optimal time to stop and remember that there are people less fortunate than you in the world. Charity drives step up in frequency and everyone looks for the spirit of the holiday, of giving gifts out of kindness and hope that others can share in your good fortune. That being said, it can help give an incentive for everyone if there's something more to be had than simply the warm fuzzy feeling. Real World Hero
, a player-run charity drive, has teamed up with the community team in City of Heroes
to provide a little extra incentive for players of the game
to step up and do something super.
Running between November 30th and December 24th, players who include their character information when they donate will be eligible for a limited-time special gold title
for their character, marking them as a generous soul. The event is not being officially sponsored by the company, but the support is certainly added incentive to take part. With Operation Gratitude
, Donate Games
, and the ever-popular Child's Play
as the designated recipients, it's a good time for City of Heroes
players to be a bit more heroic in their day-to-day lives and be known for it in-game to boot.
