It's that time of year again!

Gamers Giving Back and the Gaming World Entertainment Network are excited to present the Quaggan Waddle, back for a *third* consecutive year this Sunday, September 25th at 1pm EDT (New York, New York time, check your timezone here)

All of us at Gamers Giving Back have been working hard at getting ready for this year’s Pink Day festivities (more information on that to come) and none of us can believe it’s time to waddle again but alas, the time has come.

Never waddled before? The premise is simple! On Sunday, Sept 25th, join the Gamers Giving Back crew in Rata Sum in Guild Wars 2, set yourself to “walk”, down a Quaggan Tonic, and waddle along as we explore Tyria from the Maguuma Jungle to Ascalon, making stops and laughs along the way.

Want to join us? RSVP to the Facebook event (and share it!), tell your Quaggan-loving pals. If you can’t join us in-game, you can always watch us on Twitch.tv or tweet us, and use the hashtag #quagganwaddle2016

Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society via our Pink Day in LA fundraising page are greatly appreciated.
See you soon?

Pink Day in ArcheAge!

¿Qué es el Día en Rosa?

El día en rosa es esa época del año donde durante un día, el 15 de Octubre (¡o más si quieres!) nos pintamos nuestras armaduras de rosa y nos vamos a realizar eventos por el mundo de Guild Wars 2 para concienciar a la gente sobre el cáncer de mama. Si es tu primera vez en esto del Día en Rosa… ¡no te preocupes que te lo explicamos!

La idea original nace del Gamer solidario para poder recaudar fondos para la Sociedad del Cancer Canadiense… pero… al igual que puedes apoyar la de Canadá, ¡puedes aportar tu granito en la Española!

Desde la Comunidad de Bahía de Baruch, al igual que hicimos el año anterior, vamos a colaborar activamente por esta causa. ¡Esta vez realizaremos eventos durante casi todo el día! Desde las 11 de la mañana hasta las 11 de la noche!
