Well Of Goodwill
What is the Well Of Goodwill?
The Well of Goodwill will offer RuneScape players across the world the chance to gift some of their in-game wealth to charity. Players will be able to donate in game items, gold or even RuneScape Bonds into the Well. For every 10 million gold pieces gifted by the community, Jagex will donate $1 to a number of charitable causes. (now $2 until 30th November!)
The Well of Goodwill will also act as a massive gold sink for the game: something we promised with the launch of Bonds, and which will have a huge impact on improving the games economy.

GamesAid is a games industry charity which acts as an umbrella to support a number of smaller charities who help disadvantaged and disabled children and young people. It is a non-trading body, administered by Trustees who operate on a fixed term basis run by a chairman who is also appointed on a fixed term. As the only fully democratic charity in the games space, members of the games industry propose and vote for the charities of their choice annually. The charities who get the top number of votes then get an equal share of all the monies raised that year, proving that games and gamers can do great things for others.
