It’s Mental Awareness Week, and classic MMORPG RuneScape is supporting the cause by raising funds for its partner charities. Players can get involved by purchasing a new bundle which contains in-game items. More details below.
Mental Health Awareness Week is here! At this time of year we encourage you all to take a deep breath and think about how you can improve your mental health. We also like to do a little something for two of our three partner charities, who focus on helping people from all walks of life deal with mental health issues.
This year, you can contribute to their amazing work with the Meditation Bundle. You can purchase this special pack from the Event Tab of the Community interface for 1 Bond or 250 RuneCoins.
It’s filled with helpful goodies, including the Stone of Meditation, a reusable item that provides a useful 4% XP boost for you and a 2% XP boost for surrounding players! It can hold up to five charges, and you’ll get two charges per day.
The Stone of Meditation is only available for non-Ironman accounts. On June 14th the Stone will be cleaned up and non-Ironman players will receive 2,500 Oddments in return for looking after it.
Here’s everything you’ll get in the Meditation Bundle:
- Banner of Meditation
- Cloak of Meditation
- Stone of Meditation (Until June 14th)*
- 10 Advanced Pulse Cores*
- 5 Cinder Cores*
- 5 Large Protean Packs*
- 5 Portable Packs*
*Not available on Ironman accounts
Proceeds from the sale of the Meditation Bundle will support two of our charity partners who focus specifically on mental health: CPSL Mind and RAD.
You’ll get the chance to donate to our third charity partner, Blueprint for All, later in the year.
CPSL Mind provides support to individuals experiencing mental health problems in the Cambridge and Peterborough area, where Jagex is based. Their STOP Suicide campaign aims to prevent suicide by raising awareness and giving ordinary members of the public the skills and confidence they need to help those at risk.
Rise Above the Disorder (RAD) began as one gamer’s mission to overcome depression and has turned into a massive worldwide community aiming to make mental health care available to everyone, everywhere. RAD provides entirely free mental health services to gamers through its grant program and has helped over 28,000 people find the hope and happiness they deserve.
