Wargaming America, the video game company behind World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition and World of Tanks Blitz has announced its support for National Military Appreciation Month (NMAM) with plans to donate a part of the proceeds from its games this month to four military charities: AMVETS, Wounded Warriors Canada, National Armor and Cavalry Heritage Foundation and Operation Supply Drop.
You can get full details at their site here (plus they offer links if you want to donate directly to each organization), but here's the short version: each week during May, one of the groups will receive 25 percent of the proceeds from the $14.99, $22.99 and $23.56 dedicated gold and silver support packages purchased from the North American gift shop across all products. In addition, 25 percent of the proceeds of the all-encompassing “Military Appreciation Month Support Bundle” across each product (1,500 Gold + 1,500,000 Credits/2,000,000 Silver) purchased during May will be divided between the four organizations.
If you're already a World of Tanks player, you'll understand what that means. If you're still curious after reading about our epic trip to Warsaw, this could be the reason you need to check out the game.
