South Korean otome game company Cheritz had a huge success in 2016 with their mobile game Mystic Messenger. Now they’ve decided to use $100,000 (a bit over £81, 000) of the profits from the game’s global support in donations to Save the Children, Lifeline Korea, and Korea Sexual Violence Relief Centre.
Cheritz have chosen the Save the Children ‘School Me’ campaign, which helps support education for girls in Africa, funding teachers, dormitories, and kits of school necessities like uniforms. Their other two charities are a suicide prevention call centre and a women’s activist centre that provides relief to victims of sexual assault.
In their press release, Cheritz CEO Sujin Ri states the company had hoped to make people feel happy and warmhearted through Mystic Messenger. The game’s crazy success and stronghold on social media in the past year definitely shows they did the job. I’d say this act of generosity has helped the game do so all over again too.
So, if you ever felt bad about spending more than you meant to on those pesky hourglasses, you now have the comfort of knowing you helped make this happen. That’s a beautiful thing!
Mystic Messenger is available on iOS and Android devices.
