In a recent press release, CCP stated that "for each PLEX donated during this period, CCP hf. will contribute USD $15 to the Icelandic Red Cross to fund their aid efforts in Nepal."

We've seen a rise in recent times of various charity online streams, gaming tournaments and raffles happening as it becomes more apparent that allowing gamers to donate through their hobbies is becoming a positive and effective way to help others in need.

The last PLEX for GOOD campaign run saw $190,890 raised for those involved in Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines during November 2013.
