Grind For Charity, RuneScape Mental Health Awareness Week

Jagex has partnered with CPSL Mind, The Prince’s Trust, and YMCA Right Here to spread awareness of Mental Health Week with the Gielinorian Giving Event. Beginning now and running for two weeks, players can gather charity tokens to turn in for pieces of a cosmetic Defender of the Mind outfit, plus a shield and pet. In addition to the outfit, it is also possible to purchase a Defender of the Mind cosmetic cape from Solomon’s Store.

All throughout this week, we’ll be co-running a Get Started in Games Design course with our partners at the Prince’s Trust & Cambridge Regional College. On Thursday & Friday, the group of young adults will spend time at Jagex HQ, working alongside our game developers to build their own games, with an awards ceremony planned for Friday evening.

The nature of the event should be rather familiar to anyone who has played previous events. All you have to do to participate is play the game and you’ll earn charity points through regular skilling and combat. 1000 points can be earned per day, with that number resetting at midnight and also extendable via Runecoin purchases. Those of you with more money to burn than time can purchase charity points straight up.

All proceeds from sales of the cape and Runecoins spent will go toward the three charities.
