Xbox Live’s Halloween Skin Pack Gives Back to Charity

By   /   Oct 25, 2012


Your purchase can make a difference this fall on Xbox LIVE. Every purchase of the “Halloween Skin Pack” between October 26th and November 26th will go to charity. Not just some of it either, but the full 160 Microsoft Points, courtesy of Mojang AB, 4J Studios Ltd. and Microsoft.

The charities are “Block by Block,” an urban youth program, “SANDS Lothians,” an emotional support program for bereaved parents, “Child’s Play,” a children-minded charity for improving hospital living, and “Macmillan Cancer Support,” a charity for cancer victims in the UK.

A third of every purchase will go to the above-mentioned first two charities, while a sixth will go to the latter two.
