Here is the impact of the partnership between World of Warcraft and BlueCheck Ukraine.

World of Warcraft players raised $1.5 million for Ukrainian relief efforts. This was done through a bundle that gave players two in-game pets. One of the pets was for the Dragonflight expansion while the other was for Wrath of the Lich King Classic.
