You might remember that thatgamecompany kicked off its wildfire relief efforts last month on Earth Day, April 22nd. It collaborated with global charity One Tree Planted to plant a tree in regions affected by the raging wildfires, with the total number of trees being decided based on the number of in-game Earth Day capes purchased. The event was seemingly a tremendous success, and the final results are soon set to be shared.
Now, the developer is partnering with Doctors Without Borders and the popular #PlayTogetherApart initiative for the coming months. First off, you can support the pandemic relief efforts by purchasing the Healing Pack. This offers 75 regular Candles and a neat flower head accessory that you can check out in the screenshot below.
The pack will be priced at $19.99, and it'll go on sale this coming Monday, May 18th. Know that 100% of the revenue generated by sales will go to Doctors Without Borders, aiding the charity in its fight against COVID-19.
But that's not all. Starting from Monday, every Heart or Gift of Light sent to a friend will be doubled. The Days of Healing Double Heart event, as it's known, will run from the 18th through to the 25th, giving you a week to get involved and reap the benefits.
