Want to engage your community to make a difference?

Check out how these WPN stores did just that:

Food Drive for Homeless Backpacks

Gabi of Olympic Cards & Comics hosted an entire week of charity to benefit Homeless Backpacks.

During the "Charity Week," all event entry fees were waived. Instead, players had to donate 3 or more canned food items in order to play. The store worked with local-area businesses to donate prizes for events to encourage participation.

The week-long drive was a great success! Check out all the supplies that players donated!

TRY IT NOW: Divide players into the five clans from Khans of Tarkir and hold a month-long food drive to benefit a local food bank. You could offer the clan that brings the most donations at the end of the month a Magic-and-pizza party!

Gaming Marathon for Children's Hospitals

Active Imagination Family and Arena will be holding a 24-hour Gaming Marathon at their store to help raise funds for Extra Life, a charity gaming event that supports Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

On October 25 and 26, our Dungeons & Dragons team will be joining the charge, running a 24-hour D&D game and streaming it live.

TRY IT NOW: Have a 24-hour Friday Night Magic marathon for Extra Life at your next FNM! Or join our Extra Life D&D team. Or both!
