Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of the global Overwatch community, we’ve raised more than $12.7 million USD from sales of the special “Pink Mercy” skin and charity T-shirt to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. This is the largest donation by a corporate partner within one year in BCRF’s 25-year history.
The Pink Mercy charity skin was designed for the Overwatch hero Mercy, a scientist and “guardian angel” of the game who has dedicated her life to helping others. The limited-edition skin was offered as an in-game purchase, with Blizzard Entertainment donating 100% of the proceeds to BCRF.In addition to the charity skin, thousands of players showed their support for the cause by purchasing a limited-edition Pink Mercy T-shirt, available for men and women, designed by community artist VICKISIGH.
Charity stream viewers also raised more than $130,000 USD in donations by watching 14 different Overwatch stars from around the world stream on Twitch.
