Since late July 2011, Thailand has been suffering from “the worst floods they've seen in five decades” due to intense monsoon rains. The flood has affected over 2 million people, with over 300 reported deaths and billions of dollars in property damage.


This is your chance to make a difference. As part of Hello Kitty's birthday celebrations, Sanrio Digital is giving the players of Hello Kitty Online an opportunity to reach out through A Helping Hand for Thailand, a special in-game charity event to aid in the Thailand relief efforts.


Your efforts for this event will translate into a real-world cash donation to UNICEF and Save the Children, who have launched a joint project to ensure the safety and protection of the children who lost their homes due the disaster. Every child deserves a safe and child-friendly environment to live and play, and you can help make sure they get the care they need. Nothing would make Hello Kitty happier on her birthday!


How to Help:


This event runs from October 28 to November 2, 2011 Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Step 1: Obtain the following items to complete one set:

Step 2: Hand in one complete set to the Game Masters (GM) in Sanrio Harbour at the following times during the event period:

  • 8:00 p.m EST
  • 4:00 a.m. EST
  • 12:00 noon EST

Step 3: Repeat as many times as you want to increase the total donation amount.


Special Reward:


Hand in your first set of items (1 set = 50 Strong Wood, 100 Dry Mud 100 Long Curvy Vine) to receive a Tattered Bunny as reward for participation (maximum 1 per character).

At the end of the event, we will calculate the final cash donation based on the number of sets submitted, and the total amount will be given to UNICEF and Save The Children. There is no limit to how many times you can give, and each time you hand in a set of the required items, you are increasing the sum of money that Sanrio Digital will donate to this worthy cause.


Every bit of help counts, so we hope you all enjoy this special charity event. Thank you, and see you in the game!

Following up on our previous charity event, Hello Kitty Online is proud to announce HKO Japan Earthquake Aid Part 2, in which you can again deliver much-needed help to the people of disaster-stricken Japan. The event will run from April 1 to April 10, 2011. Despite the date, this is NOT an April's fool joke.

 

HKO Japan Earthquake Aid Part 2

April 1 - 10, 2011

 

As in the previous event, HKO players will be asked to contribute their time to help the people of Japan, which a few weeks ago was devastated by one of the most powerful earthquakes in history. The scale of this disaster is enormous and that’s why we have announced this follow-up charity event with new and improved mechanics to allow you to maximize your contributions.

 

Charity Information

 

At the end of the event, Sanrio Digital will count the total player efforts and make a donation to Project KIBOW, through our associate GLOBIS University. Project KIBOW is an initiative by GLOBIS University to raise funds for Civic Force, a Japanese non-profit organization that delivers emergency services during large-scale crises.

 

If you are interested in donating directly, or do not have time to participate in this event, you can make donations at the Project KIBOW page or Civic Force.

 

NOTE: GLOBIS is no longer matching donations because they have already reached their ceiling (which is great news). However, they are still accepting donations until the end of April.


 

New Mechanics: Choose a Tier that's suitable for you

 

We’ve made some changes to the event mechanics in order to give everyone a chance to participate, regardless of level, progress in the game, and farm ownership.

 

There are now four tiers of donation items, each worth a certain number of donation points. The higher the tier, the higher the donation points. Simply pick the tier that suits you, obtain those items, and hand them in to a Game Master (GM).

 

With each hand-in, you generate donation points. In addition, when you reach or exceed 40 points in this event, you will receive a special brand new reward to commemorate your generous efforts.

 

The fastest way to obtain the reward is to work on the highest tier that your character is capable of. The higher the tier, the more donation points you generate and the quicker you get to the reward. Please do try to reserve Tier 1 for newbies and low level characters.

 

 

Tiers and Requirements

 

TIER 1 (one set is worth 3.5 points)

Dark Opal Basil x 35

Clover x 35

Prerequisites:

  •  Must have reached Sanrio Harbour

 

TIER 2 (one set is worth 5 points)

Veggie Tempura x 50

Prerequisites:

Instructions

Step 1: Gather the items required in any one tier. You can gather items for multiple tiers, if you wish, but please reserve Tier 1 for newbies and low-level characters.

 

Step 2: Give the item sets you’ve gathered to a Game Master (GM) at Sanrio Harbour during the event period. You must hand in exact amounts – for example, at Tier 4 you need to hand in Veggie Tempura in multiples of 50.

 

Step 3: You will earn donation points corresponding to which tier of items you hand in. Obtain 40 or more points to get the event reward. Note that the higher the tier, the faster you generate donation points, so do not waste time at lower tiers if you are a high level character.

 

Step 4: Repeat as many times as you want to increase the total donation amount. You can continue to hand in items even after you get your event reward - we will count every single (complete) submission when it is time to calculate the charity payment.

 

Every time you hand in a set of the required items, you are adding to a point tally. At the end of the event we will calculate the final donation.

 

Event Special Prize

Earn 40 donation points or more to receive a Tokyo Outfit as reward for participation (maximum 1 per character). This is a brand new item of clothing that looks truly spiffy.

Remember: every set you hand in equals a higher donation toward relief efforts in Japan. There is no limit on the number of times you can hand in items. Thank you and see you in the game!
