Wizard101 Kicks Off Holiday Celebration; Launches In-Game "Chrismoose" Mount

PLANO, TEXAS (December 9, 2011) –As the weather outside turns frightful, Wizard101 is spreading winter warmth by kicking off 12 days of holiday events and surprises. To give this celebration a little more juice – Wizard101 is starting off with a charity moose!

"Over the last two years, KingsIsle and the Wizard101 community have raised over $180,000 for children's charities in Texas and around the country," said Elie Akilian, chairman and CEO of KingsIsle Entertainment. "This year, with the launch of a festive Chrismoose mount, we plan to raise another $50,000 to benefit two extraordinary Texas organizations."

The Chrismoose charity mount will gallop into Wizard101's in-game Crown shop on December 9th and be available for a limited time. The charity mount will support two organizations devoted to helping children: the Austin Children's Shelter located in Austin, Texas, and Children's Medical Center at Legacy, a pediatric hospital located in Plano, Texas.

Additionally, from December 9 until December 21, each day KingsIsle will unveil new ways to celebrate the season. There are many surprises planned, so be on the lookout for:
  • Discounts on a variety of popular in-game items
