The “Paws and Claws” pack will be the first of the WWF-themed charitable initiatives to feature in Minecraft, containing a selection of cat and panda-themed skins. All net proceeds from every pack sold between launch and December 11, 2021 will be donated to the WWF, to support their work protecting panda habitats and other vulnerable species.
As an added incentive, Microsoft will donate a further US$100,000 once 10 million bamboo blocks within Minecraft have been placed in-game, so better get building!
In order to get involved in Microsoft’s charity initiative, players will need to be using Minecraft’s Bedrock Edition, which is available on Windows 10, Xbox One, Switch, iOS, and Android.
They are confident this donation isn’t a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Last summer, when they promised to donate US$100,000 dollars to The Nature Conservancy if the community placed 10 million coral blocks, the community rallied together to manage it in a matter of days!
