November 1 is Hello Kitty’s birthday, and to celebrate HKO is holding a special charity event called Hello Kitty’s Birthday Cheer! From October 28 to November 15, 2010, come, be merry, and contribute to charity simply by taking part in this event! Win prizes, earn rewards, and try a bunch of new things! Learn more at the event page, read the release notes, or talk to the Party Clown in Sanrio Harbour to begin the adventure!
Your efforts during this event will determine the sum of money that Sanrio Digital will donate to two worthy causes.
On October 18, super typhoon Megi slammed into the Philippines, causing widespread damage including rendering 200,000 people homeless and destroying hundreds of thousands of tons worth of food crops. The aid organization Save the Children is working to provide relief in the affected regions. The higher your donation score in this special event, the more money Sanrio Digital will donate to Save the Children. Two thirds of the total donation amount are reserved for Save the Children.
One third of the total donation is reserved for the Asian Youth Orchestra, which offers tuition-free opportunities for young pre-professional musicians to hone their skills and be exposed to varied artistic experiences.
