Want to help out some Neopians in need? Have no fear, Granny Hopbobbin is here in the Charity Corner! You can help out some of Neopia's poorest Neopians by donating items that Granny Hopbobbin's asking for!
Adopt a Neopian
Every day that the Charity Corner is open, you'll have the option to Adopt a Neopian and give them a set list of items. You may do this by clicking on the "Adopt a Neopian" button:
After activating the "quest", you'll need to decipher which items you need. Luckily they are the same for everyone and we have a list below:
For completing 8 of the adoptions above, you will receive a shiny new avatar:
Neopoint Toy Drive
In addition to specific item donations above, you may also donate toy items to the Toy Drive. You must donate 5 toys at a time to receive a prize.
Your five toys must:
- Restock in the Toy Shop, Usuki Doll Shop, Darigan Toy Shop, or Plushie Shop
- Have a rarity of r1 up to r99
- Fall within one of these ranges: r1-r69, r70-r79, r80-r89, r90-r99
In other words, if you chose a r76 toy to donate, your other four toys must have rarities between r70 and r79.
The first toy you select from a dropdown will filter the rest of the eligible toys you may donate from your inventory.
Here are links to r1-99 toy items in our Item Database, sorted by cheapest price:
Here are links to only r90-99 toy items in our Item Database, sorted by cheapest price:
WARNING: Obviously, toy prices are NOT stable right now. Prices will be fluctuating up and down, so the prices in our Item Database are likely out of date. However, the lists above are still useful for seeing which items were relatively cheap before the event, so you can start your search.
As a reward for donating five toy items, you will receive a random item that is from the same rarity range your donated toys belonged to.
So for example, if you donate five toys that are r70-r79, you'll receive a random item with a rarity somewhere between r70 and r79. A good strategy will be to find the cheapest toys that are r90+ and aim for obtaining prizes in that rarity range for the largest pay off.
The item rewards you can receive fall into the following categories (note that depending on the rarity range, some categories may not be available):
- Clothes (including Neovian Attire)
- Food (including Coffee, Molten Morsels, Candy...)
- Stamp (including Sea Shells and Coins)
- Book (including Neovian Press, Desert Scroll...)
- Furniture (including Brightvale Windows, Kreludan Furniture...)
- Petpet (including Aquatic Petpet, Spooky Petpet...)
- Collectable Card
- Island Merchandise
- Meridell Potion
The following items can also be awarded:
The Gift Basket Centre will be open from December 15 until December 31, 2014 and is accepting donations of Neocash items. Donating will allow you to access a special gift shop with exclusive Neocash items.
To get started, you'll need to purchase a Roll of Basket Wrap for every three NC items you want to donate. They are available in the NC Mall.
After you purchase your wrap, choose any three Neocash items you would like to donate, and place them in your inventory. Any Neocash item is eligible for donation.
Once you've selected your items, return to the Gift Basket Centre and select your Neocash items from the dropdowns.
You will need to confirm donating the items, since they will be gone forever:
Once you have confirmed, you will be presented with this thank you message and a gift receipt to spend in the gift shop:
Items in the gift shop cost anywhere from one to four donation receipts (aka donating one to four times). When you select an NC item worth four receipts, you will also receive a Basic Gift Box in addition to the item. Below are all of the items available:
Most Generous Neopians
A running tally was kept of how many times each Neopian donated to the Charity Corner. This tally includes Adopt a Neopian donations, Neopoint Toy Drive donations, and Neocash donations. For example, if you donated all 17 days of Adopt a Neopian, plus 3 times through the NP Drive, and once during the NC drive, your total would be 21 donations. A top ten list is visible on the Charity Corner homepage, listing the 10 "most generous" Neopians along with the number of times they have donated.
On January 6, 2015, after the Charity Corner event ended, all Neopians who donated at least once received a special prize for their participation in the event. The prizes are detailed below.
Originally, only the final top 10 listing was supposed to receive the grand prize of 10,000 NP and 1,000 NC. TNT announced on January 7, however, that the prize would be awarded to the top 50 players.
The top players were notified with the following Neomail (courtesy of tyuio_k50):
You made the top 10 Most Generous Neopians list! Granny Hopbobbin was amazed by your generosity during this Toy Drive. She thought it best to send a special congratulations, along with 1000 NC and 10,000 NP. She admires your energy, young Neopian!
