MapleStory: Over 200,000 Players Take Part in Charity Drive

Nexon has announced that over 200,000 MapleStory players participated in special quests to help donate $10,000 to help support water efforts in Rwanda. Players carried tanks of water for thirty in-game minutes to support the cause.

During the last week of September and the first week of October, MapleStory hosted two in-game quests that were designed to engage users to learn about the importance of clean water and to allow them to show their support of the charity: water efforts in Rwanda. In the first quest, MapleStory players collected water droplets from monsters, while in the second quest, players were tasked with carrying a container of water for 30 minutes while in-game. Each completion of either quest helped contribute to fill a water gauge monitoring the total donation to be made to charity: water. 

Players can continue to donate to the ongoing effort on the Nexon "My Charity Water site.
