What you can get for donating
On December 14, we will begin taking donations that will go directly towards the campaign, meaning donations made in the time between then and the end of the stream will qualify you for rewards.

When you are donating at our link below, you will have the ability to choose which reward you want to get, as long as the amount donated is equal to or higher than the "price" of the chosen item. 

During this time, you can give at the minimum the suggested donation, tied to the individual reward.

Apart from the satisfaction of having helped a good cause, here are some of the more tangible rewards that you can claim:
Torpedo plushes.
Signed posters.
Rare ship bundles, including the likes of   VII Belfast ,   IX Missouri , or   V Kamikaze.
Division time with Contributors.
Commander packs.
Exclusive event permacamos.

 

this might be best chance to get them but look at the price

well I want to know how much of that donation actually goto the Charity, not how much it cost ; if its going to be 100% going into Charity I am all for it though I do not had the spare fund to do it I am still for the cause. Come to think about it the individual cost and the amount is not the point, its if its going to the Charity and how much

WG could have gotten more charity if it wasn't for the Puerto Rico PR fiasco.

With their current situation, many might just sleep it off.

I am donating to my favorite charity: Me.

Apart from that, there are many other better charities you can directly donate to like you local Salvos for one.

BTW, wg is doing this as a business 'tax deductible' so people, please don't go through them.

Do people really take WG's words that "the money raised will go straight to charity"?

More like into their Gulag Bank.

No amount of charity should allow people to have the absolute POS known as "Musashi".

Angry weeb screeching

Musashi is ok. But for $200? Hell no!

On a side note, isn't charity supposed to be given without a fixed amount? This is just a straight up transaction. And I don't believe the money will really go for the charity.

None of the monetary contributions made during this event will go through Wargaming, but will go directly to Save the Children.

They state this in the news article...……………………….but is fair to say that the players trust in WG management has eroded somewhat over the past week.

Again people, don't. Don't donate through wg. If you really feel charitable this holiday season, go to your nearest charitable organization and help out, make a donation directly to them. There is no need to give this company any positive PR (bad pun) after the way they screwed their customers.

Plenty of whales will drop 200 to get a Payfast or Mi$$ouri.

I absolutely hate the Musashi and Yammy, I think they are the most bland, boring, painful play style ships in the game.  It's hard to deny that the Musashi is objectively extremely strong though, it's a T10 a tier lower with almost no changes.

I think they're trying to encourage as much donating as possible, hence the high minimum amounts.  They have said specifically that all money goes directly to StC, and doesn't even go through WG - I think they have been so directly specific on this that there is no way WG is taking anything. 

I wouldn't let WG's really horrific business practices for the PR event stop you donating if that's what you want to do - this is genuinely a good cause, and it's a direct donation, plus you get stuff for your donation.  It's a charitable donation too, you can also deduct it from your tax so long as you get a proof of donation, so that's a double bonus.

Moon base fund? I heard their boss wanted to make one long time ago.

Maybe it means funds for exploring the moon (so that children can live there)

And no, I don't need it because *reads the list* I got all of them

P.S. I like those CC/streamer still wanted to stream for WG, they should have reject the proposal and tell WG to FO.

Im actually already sponsoring with Save the Children paying per month at $468 per year. Claim it all back during tax time. Been doing it for 15yrs. I wouldnt do it on here, not for 200US which is crazy.

I played Yamato once or twice in PTS, and I never want to grind IJN BB line. Never find the reason why I would grind that line. Even the old US BB line is leagues better. 

I've said this many times before: Musashi is NOT nerfed enough from Yamato to justify being in T9. The fact that Musashi will see T7 ships make the game one more bit more unfair.

Bought a watch from battleshiptexas.org with the money I was planning on spending in the Premium Shop & the Charity stream. Sorry but WG and any WG-affiliated events can just sod off because of how badly they've handled the whole PR mess

Once again, whoever wants to be charitable, DON'T go through WG despite the temptation. You are just "making them look good" after all the negative PR.

If people wanna donate amounts such as 100-200 $, then they can just do it directly to the cause instead of doing it through WG, that just adds a step in transaction thus adding additional transaction fee.
