Lords Mobile developer IGG – short for I Got Games – has been playing its part in the global fight against Covid-19.
Back in January the studio shipped N95 masks, surgical gloves, surgical masks, and more to the most affected areas in Asia. It followed this up with a more global effort, with IGG’s international branches in the US, Belarus, Japan, Brazil, and Indonesia rallying to the cause.
Donations of crucial supplies have since been made to institutions dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak in Italy, Korea, and Japan, as well as the US. IGG has donated N95 masks to the City of Fremont Police Department, Kaiser Permanente Medical Group, and Stanford Hospital.
The latest country to fall under IGG’s philanthropic gaze is Canada, with donations being made to Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, Nikkei Seniors Health Care and Housing Society, and Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
All in all, that means IGG has sent more than 2.05 million pieces of medical equipment to countries all around the world.
Of course, IGG didn’t commence its charitable career when the Covid-19 outbreak began. Last year alone, the studio raised money for War Child UK by selling a special Armistice Pack in Lords Mobile, and for Make-A-Wish International by holding a competition to design a castle.
IGG worked this castle up into a commercial skin and sold it through Lords Mobile, donating the proceeds from the first two weeks to Make-A-Wish.
The company has pushed its philanthropy up a gear with Covid-19, however, mobilising its enormous reach and financial clout to get scarce supplies to where they’re needed most.
