What better way to wrap up TennoCon 2019 than with a shout out and hearty thanks to the generosity of Digital Extremes and Warframe players? You guys rock! A key component of TennoCon since its inception in 2016 is to donate ticket sale proceeds to a local charity. This year, the studio is giving $250,000 CAD raised to Canadian Mental Health Association, Middlesex. Besides ticket sales, fans could donate directly throughout the convention and during the TennoLive broadcast. The organization was also on hand at the con providing information about its programs as well as outreach numbers for any who might need them.
The generosity of the players increases each year. Previous year’s donations went to the following charity partners: Outward Bound Canada in 2016, a program that assists youth, women, and veterans ($78,839 CAD); Covenant House Toronto in 2018, which helps at-risk youth ($150,000 CAD); and Canada Learning Code in 2018, a program that offers technology education to women, girls, people with disabilities, Indigenous youth, and newcomers ($200,000 CAD).
Way to go Digital Extremes and Warframe community!
