I welcome you to participate in Conquer Club's second official charity drive event for SOS Africa. It's been a solid two years since our last charity endeavor and we're certainly proud to be back on track. As some of you may recall, our last event featured the production of our Africa II map:
This year, we'll be taking on a more tournament-based route, and I'd immediately like to thank the staff of our Entertainment Team, Tournament Directors, and Chatters, and a special shout-out to Dukasaur and TeeGee for all of their help in the coordination and development of this event. Their efforts are timeless and we certainly can't thank them enough (though we'll try)!
The time for this introduction is over! Let's get onto what Conquer Club has planned for you, the player, to help make a change (and get some medals and premium, of course )!
What is SOS Africa?
Some of us remember the old SOS Africa contests that Conquer Club held some time ago, but for all of our new faces and to refresh ourselves, here is a rundown of what SOS Africa is:
The SOS Africa Children's Charity is a small, non-profit, UK registered, predominantly volunteer-run Somerset charity, which funds the education and care of underprivileged African township children run by Conquer Club's very own Tactician.
We're hoping that this continued effort makes a difference in the lives of people involved with SOS Africa.
List of Events:
- This event will host a mega-tournament with a grand prize of 5 Years of Premium Membership. You may only enter this tournament via a donation on our JustGiving page, or by earning a spot in one of many Qualifier Tournaments [MAXIMUM OF FOUR ENTRIES PER PERSON].
- Winning a Qualifier Tournament will reward you with a Tournament Medal, 3 Months of Premium, and a place in the aforementioned mega-tournament.
- The Chatters will also be holding a Live Chat Event and a Forum Contest, with the winners of each gaining entry into the mega-tournament.
The Qualifier tournaments will be released in waves over the next few days to keep from clogging up the Join A Tournament page and the links will be featured in a following post.
How To Donate:
As we have done in the past, Conquer Club has set up it's very own JustGiving page! You could find us there, but we've made it a bit easier! Here's a big, red, 'Donate Here' sign ;
(Note: And if you reside in the UK, check out this post by a fellow UK Conquer Clubber which explains how you can have the UK Government attach some extra funds to your donation, at no extra cost to you!)
When donating, to claim your free entry into our Mega-Tournament, please INCLUDE YOUR CONQUERCLUB USERNAME in the "Your Name" field as shown below:
and be sure to keep the option to hide your donation "unchecked."
Well, that's certainly that! I'll keep you all updated as we strive to reach our goal of $500 USD, and reach it we will! To all who donate -- thank you for your continued support of not only SOS Africa, but also of Conquer Club -- we're in for the long haul and wish to do as much as we can not only for our community, but the communities of those that have less than us! If you belong or have organized any charities or fundraisers, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll investigate our options together! Best of luck to you all in your tournaments (and with your good will ). Best,
