It can go that fast! Blizzard’s pet charity program met its first fundraising goal of $ 500,000 in no time. This means that the little monkey Bananas is available to all “Retail-WoW” players. On the official World of Warcraft homepage, the developers thank the donors and remind them of the second donation goal to unlock the cute pet Daisy.

Thanks to many generous Donations to Doctors Without Borders e. V. has reached the first fundraising goal of US $ 500,000 and unlocks the rare pet Bananas for all retail players in World of Warcraft. Monkey Bananas is now free in the Blizzard Shop available. So you can pick up your pet immediately on the homepage.

Blizzard has since made some changes to the pet benefit program. The money will go directly to Doctors Without Borders in America during the campaign.

This is how you can donate:

  • Visit the Doctors Without Borders’ DonorDrive page and select the “Donate To This Event” button at the top of the page.
  • Enter a donation and choose your currency type via the drop-down menu.
  • For USD only: Select PayPal, Amazon Pay, or credit card as the payment method.
  • For all other currencies, click on “Next” and then enter your credit card and payment information.
  • Click on “Pay” to process the donation process.

On the official site of World of Warcraft Community Manager Kaivax thanks all donors with these words:

Thanks to your generous donations to Doctors Without Borders e. V. we have reached the donation goal of 500,000 USD and are switching the little monkey Bananas for all players of the modern World of Warcraft (buy now 14,99 € ) free. Bananas is now available for free in the Blizzard Shop.

With the activation of Bananas we have already collected half of the donations needed to activate the sloth Daisy! If $ 1 million is donated by April 26, 2021, Daisy will become available and comfortable on your back as you travel through Azeroth. For more details on WoW’s pet benefit program and how to donate, can be found here.

The first donation goal was reached in a flash and the bar up to the first million continues to fill up rapidly. Potential donors still have more than a month to round the amount up. Bananas and Daisy can be redeemed in your Battle.net account until August 2, 2021 after the respective donation target has been reached. Warning: The pets are not available in World of Warcraft Classic or World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade Classic!
